Quinoa Diet – How Does it Make You Lose Weight?
The quinoa diet is getting more and more popular not only for vegetarians but for people who wanted to lose weight as well. I'm currently trying to shed off pounds and I was doing my research and I came across with quinoa and I'm really amazed with what I found. It is a staple among Incans and they eat it to regain stamina and strength. Vegetarians love it too because quinoa is packed with high-quality protein that you do not get from soy and beans. It's one of the few foods that can provide "complete" protein.
The quinoa diet is great because unlike any other fad diets we have around, it will not starve you to death and you can be assured that you are getting the right amount of nutrients for every serving. If you want to lose weight, you do not have to need eat the so-called "diet foods" because once you go back to eating regular food, you'll start getting again. What you need is consistency.
With the quinoa diet, you can prepare it with pretty much anything you want. You can either make it as the main course or a side dish. When you cook quinoa, it is given that you prepare it with other healthy foods. I'm sure you can not afford to cook quinoa with deep fried chicken or dump cups of mozzarella cheese on it. You always mix it with lean meat, vegetables or fruits.
What I love about quinoa is the way it fills me up. I do not get hungry as often unlike when I was still eating white rice. The seeds take a long time for your system to digest and because of its slow-releasing carbohydrate content, you stay full for a longer period of time.
Did I say carbohydrates? Yes I did! No you do not have to be scared of carbohydrates because what quinoa contains is good carbs. You have more energy but at the same time, your cravings for sugary foods will be less. It reduces the hunger pangs that you always have to struggle with on a very low-calorie diet. I'll say it again, this is the type of diet that will not starve you to death and it will give you energy every single day.
