Losing weight isn’t easy.  First, food is delicious, and secondly, the methods of slimming down are often unpleasant. There is only one surefire way to go about it, and that’s by consuming fewer calories than you expend. Creating this deficit usually requires diet and exercise.

However, there are lots of smart lifestyle hacks that one can employ to make your new, belt-tightening lifestyle stick. One of the best ways is by replacing a high-calorie snack with a low-calorie snack or by replacing a big meal with something simple, nutritious and low in calories. The problem there, of course, is that low-calorie foods often aren’t very filling, and you could end up hungry again after.

Luckily, new research may provide a smart solution to this dilemma–peas! That’s right, according to an article published in Food and Nutrition (2016),* beans and peas are more satiating than pork- and veal-based meals.  It’s long been known that protein can be used to curb hunger and aid weight loss, but now it seems that peas and beans might just do it best.

The AIM Companies provide the finest, cleanest pea protein in ProPeas. With only sixty calories per serving, it makes an effective, hunger-busting snack.  Additionally, adding a little fiber can also increase satiation, so pairing ProPeas with 10-calorie fit ‘n fiber will provide added protection against unwanted cravings.

Titled: *Meals based on vegetable protein sources (beans and peas) are more satiating than meals based on animal protein sources (veal and pork) – a randomized cross-over meal test study.
