The truth is, chickpeas work wonders for your health.

"Various studies have shown that they aid in weight and diabetes management, improve heart and intestinal health, and even help in cancer prevention," reveals dietitian Natalie Rizzo in an article published on Today.

She explains that a half-cup serving contains 130 calories, seven grams of protein, three grams of fat, 20 grams of carbohydrates, 6.5 grams of fiber, and 1.8 milligrams of iron.

"Fiber is known for its role in aiding digestion and is also linked to reduced blood pressure and heart protection," she continues.

"Several studies indicate that people who consume legumes are more likely to lose weight, even without restricting their calorie intake."

This food takes longer to digest, which ultimately reduces appetite and blood sugar spikes, as reported by Notícias ao Minuto.
