CHIA SEEDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
It’s easy to incorporate chia seeds into your daily diet! Add to smoothies, sprinkle over cereals, use to thicken desserts or simply eat by the handful.
The secret of chia seeds is that once moistened, they form a thick gel which bulks up meals and makes them more substantial. Add to smoothies, sprinkle over breakfast cereals. Meals become more filling and more satisfying – without adding significant calories!
