How Best to Lose Weight with Seeds

If you consume more calories than you are using, your body will store fat. If you are overweight you can lose one to two pounds of body fat per week following this simple diet. Hemp seed is used to provide a filling and healthy alternative protein. If you are obese or have any condition that may be affected by dieting please consult your physician beforehand, but this is a sensible eating plan and will ensure the fat stays off. A calorie-controlled diet is the most effective way to lose weight and maintain a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI); you will live longer, suffer fewer illnesses, and have more energy. You don’t require any fad diet books or expensive weight-loss supplements. Most of these fad diets shed pounds very quickly, but nearly all of them do not have a lasting effect. The pounds that seem to drop off so miraculously are mostly bodily fluids lost through dehydration. In fact, some studies have shown that as many as 90% of all dieters regain the weight within a year of losing it and many put on even more weight.

Hemp Nut Salad

Salads are a great way of eating your 2 tablespoons of raw hemp seeds a day. Simply sprinkle 1 tablespoon of hulled hemp seed per portion of tossed salad. It is recommended that organic hemp oil be used in the dressing. Try 1 part hemp oil, 1 part white vinegar, and the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon. Increase or reduce the quantities to taste, and season with ground black pepper.

Toasted Hemp Seeds

Heating damages the amino acids contained within the seeds, but this snack is a far healthier alternative to potato chips or pretzels. Toast your hulled hemp seeds in a pan until light brown, and add salt and pepper to taste.
