Chickpeas particularly have low glycemic index (GI), which means it shows gradual increase in blood sugar rather than a sudden spike. That means it is essential in blood sugar control, and is safe for diabetic people. As a matter of fact, it can help towards preventing diabetes development in those who don’t have it!

Hummus for weight loss? There have been stranger things happen.
Our insatiable need to shake excess fat from our bodies has seen several weight loss diets creep into the health and fitness market during the last couple of years. Most of the time, these diets fail to help people lose those extra kilos, but some produce very satisfactory weight loss results. One of the weight loss ideas that have been found to be quite effective when it comes to reducing hunger pangs and food consumption is eating hummus regularly as part of a balanced diet. Incorporating hummus into your diet gives you a massive boost of protein and keeps you fuller for longer. You might also try eating tabbouleh to give you the greens your body needs.
Who invented it?
Hummus dip has its origin in the Middle East, with the main ingredients as olive oil, chickpeas, salt, garlic, tahini, and lemon juice. Humus serves as a snack or side fish, and offers you very tasty and nutritious variety to your weight loss diet plan. You can make humus a part of your daily food intakes to achieve better results.
Plan your daily food intake to incorporate humus as a way of reducing your calorie intakes. To maintain your weight, you need about 15 calories per pound of body weight to maintain your weight. This means you need about 500 calories less than this to shave 1 pound in a week. According to dieticians, humus provides you a better substitute to the Mayo-based condiments that are known to be very high in calorie counts. These high calorie condiments make a dent on your weight loss diet plans by adding the weight back on in the form of low nutrient calories.
How to Eat Hummus
You can always spread humus on your crackers or sandwiches instead of fatty condiments. Dip your vegetable sticks or crackers into hummus to have a more filling tasty snack. Always use veggies rather than the fatty chips whenever you can, as this will give you better results. You can add red pepper slices, the vitamin C contained in them helps the body absorb more of the iron contained in the hummus. Sliced cucumbers, carrots, Zucchini or asparagus spears are equally good ideas.
Always insist on low calorie hummus and make it yourself at home whenever you can. If you must use store bought then the traditional hummus is always the best, but some manufacturers make use higher amounts of olive oil, some brands contain extra flavorings to increase the calorie content, so be aware of this when purchasing. Eat Hummus as part of your healthy diet.
