Take a look at the many benefits of this seed for weight loss:

1. High fibre

Weight gain is mostly about overeating and unhealthy food which stays in your body for too long. High fibre food helps in keeping you full for long and regulates your bowel movements too. Flaxseeds are rich in fibre and help in weight management. Also, most of the carbs in flaxseeds are fibre.

2. Rich source of omega 3 fatty acids

Flaxseeds are rich in Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega 3 fatty acid. This one is known to suppress appetite and helps in curbing your appetite and keeps you full for prolonged hours. As a result, you eat less and lose weight.

3. Antioxidants

Lignans in flaxseeds are not directly linked to weight loss. What they do is improve the cell function when the body is burning fat. Also, they offer nutritional support to your body.

4. A rich source of plant protein

20% of flaxseeds are proteins, which in turn promotes weight loss. If you are a vegetarian, then flaxseeds are a good source of protein for you, which can also promote weight loss.

How to incorporate flaxseeds in your diet?

Add whole seeds to your toast and porridge, or sprinkle the powder on your food or blend it along with the batter of pancakes or your milkshake and relish the weight loss benefits of this super seed.
