Why are hemp hearts good for weight loss?

Hemp hearts

When hemp seeds are shelled, a few small smooth tasting gems known as hemp hearts. Not only are they highly nutritious and easier to digest, but they can also help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Adding hemp seeds to your breakfast cereal, lunch sandwich, or salad (as part of a homemade dressing) will help keep you energized until the next meal. And it is that three tablespoons offer no less than 10 grams of protein, which, remember, helps keep blood sugar and energy levels stable. That means fewer high-calorie sugar cravings.

If you are trying to cut back on your carbohydrate intake, this food can become an excellent ally. With only two grams of carbohydrates for every three tablespoons, they represent an interesting and addictive (chewing them in a whole experience) alternative to cereals or oatmeal for breakfast. Those who prefer toast for breakfast are in luck, since it can also be taken in the form of butter, being lower in calories than the rest.

Although they are not a great source of the satiating fiber, hemp hearts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which, in addition to being very important for the body, contribute to the feeling of satiety. Add them to your smoothies and sprinkle them in yogurt and whole grain rice and pasta so you don't have to eat as much as you used to and therefore lose weight.
