Garbanzo beans are perfect for a weight loss program. Like most legumes, they have long been valued for their fiber content. 2 cups daily provide the entire daily value of fiber!

The newest research regarding this bean reveals that people who consumed these beans daily had lowered their bad cholesterol (LDL) and lowered their triglycerides. In one study, after only 1 week of incorporating chick peas into their diet, people improved blood sugar and insulin secretion. That means this helps people with Diabetes!
