Eating pulses on a regular basis aids in weight loss

Latest research states that eating just 130 g of pulses daily could help with weight loss.

In The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, scholars established that individuals who ate 130 g of pulses every day for a usual of 6 weeks lost weight, associated with those who did not eat pulses daily, even when they made no other prominent nutritional variations.

A part of the pulse family, pulses comprise dried beans, dried peas, chickpeas and lentils. Pulses are low in fat and high in protein and fibre, making them an ideal food choice for people who do not get protein from meat, fish or dairy products. They are also high in iron, zinc, phosphorus, folate and many other vitamins and minerals.

Numerous studies have documented the health welfares of pulses. In 2014, for example, Medical News Today reported on a study signifying a portion of pulses each day may lower “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol by 5%.
