Apart from weight loss, pulses can also keep a check on cholesterol levels by reducing LDL (bad cholesterol) in your body. As they are power packed with fibre and protein, pulses will keep you full for long and prevent frequent hunger pangs.
A study tracked participants as they increased the fiber in their diets from 16 grams to 28 grams per day. Over the course of 4 weeks, participants ate 1.5 cups of pulses per day. In just 4 weeks, they decreased their caloric intake by 300 calories per day, lost 3 pounds, and reported feeling less hungry and more full.
