Natural Weightloss Food #3: Garbanzo Beans (Chickpeas)
Garbanzo beans contain L-phenylalanine, an essential amino acid that functions as a natural antidepressant and improves memory, mood, and libido, as well as boosting your metabolism. L-phenylalanine helps to get you moving in the morning, clears your mind and improves your mental clarity, allowing you to focus on things other than losing weight. Additionally, L-phenylalanine provides a feeling of fullness, enabling you to eat less and still feel satisfied.
Other foods that contain L-phenylalanine include soybeans, fish, poultry, almonds, pecans, pumpkin and sesame seeds, lima beans, and lentils.
To incorporate garbanzo beans into your natural weight loss plan, top a salad with a cup of the beans. Or snack on hummus and sliced veggies for an easy and tasty natural appetite control option.
