Chia seeds and weight loss

Facts on weight loss


According to the world health organization in 2008 35% of the adults aged 20 and over were overweight and 11% were obese. Obesity has nearly doubled since 1980 and worldwide in total more than 1.4 billion adults of 20 and older are overweight and more than 40 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2012. Obesity is a major risk factor for diseases such as diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders, especially and some cancers such as endometrial, breast, and colon cardiovascular diseases, heart disease and stroke, which were the leading cause of death in 2012


Therefore, not just for obese people chia seeds can be of any significance, just for anybody who is interested in weight control. In general, any weight loss diet is more than just subtracting or adding single foods. What matters is the entire diet, as well as other lifestyle behaviors like exercising and sleeping routines. We believe that together with a real food based diet along with a healthy lifestyle, chia seeds can definitely help with weight loss.


Chia seeds have a unique blend of both insoluble and soluble fiber.

Fiber slows down the body's process of breaking down foods to sugars, resulting in more stable blood sugars. See also for more sugars and chia and diabetes section. Once chia seeds come in touch with a liquid, the seeds form a gel and once ingested they further expand which give you a feeling of satiation. The fiber in fact absorbs a large quantity of water and the gel expands itself in the stomach, which increase the feeling of fullness and slow down the absorption of food. Glucomannan enjoys the same feature. On glucomannan, a fiber that works in a similar way as chia seeds, there have been several studies conducted and they all show that it lead to weight loss. In an other study outcomes were the same: “Results showed a significant mean weight loss (5.5 lbs) using glucomannan over an eight-week period”. Furthermore positive effects are reported on serum cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol which were significantly reduced (21.7 and 15.0 mg/dl respectively) in the glucomannan treated group. Last but not least, no adverse reactions to glucomannan were reported.


Further research has shown that in diabetic subjects that chia seeds enjoy a a low glycemic index food.

A low index mean that eating Chia seeds decreases the blood sugar spike approximately an hour after the meal. Then the after eliminating the sugar spike, the subsequent drop in sugar an hour later is less intense, and this is known to lead to decreased feelings of hunger.



In modern day’s life, losing weight has become a mayor issue. Obesity causes very serious deceases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and some cancers.

Chia seeds thru its fiber and its unique ability to form a gel proves to be a significant help in make you feel full and lose weight.
