Do Chia Seeds Help with Belly Fat?



  1. Ok, so ground chia promotes better weightloss and other benefits compared to oat bran, but that doesn't mean it promotes more weightloss than not eating the chia seeds at all, or am I missing something?

  2. I grind up both Chia and Flax Seeds mixing them and I put a tablespoon of this combo in my food a couple times per day. Love it.

  3. I am very confused. I just watched your earlier video “chia vs flax seeds” where you read a study that demonstrated no benefit to weight loss with chia seeds. Now the science is saying the opposite?

  4. Chia seeds is great in overnight oats, gives a great consistency and its often used to make puddings👍

  5. This has been my entire fat loss strategy. Fat loss progress so far? 230 pounds to 177 pounds. From December 2017 to June 2018.

    Literally eating 4 table spoons of Chia seeds keeps me full/away from kitchen naturally, for 10,12,14,16 hours. Straight.

    I blend the chia seeds in a vegetable smoothie for fun. You can eat them however you like.

    I fully soak the chia seeds in water for 7-10 minutes. Chia seeds if not soaked in water, will simply take the water they need from your stomach if swallowed unsoaked.

    Chia seeds taking water from your stomach may cause stomach pain, which i experienced Twice in my case.

    Rice, Couscous, Spaghetti and other carb types. Keep me full for 30 minutes, 1 hour, maybe 1 hour 30 minutes.

    Once Chia seeds are eaten. Everything else i eat is for fun (Not needed to keep me full)

    All the chicken, salads, eggs, etc i eat. Becomes eaten for fun instead of needing to keep full.

  6. 2 raw egg yolks daily, shells well washed, whites cooked, have sufficient ant-oxidants such as selenium, the amino acids l-cysteine, l-tyrosene, l-tryptohane and B vitamins to STOP arterial inflammation, that is one of the 3 main causes of calcification. (no not caused by high blood.. nor high total cholesterol). I consume up to 10 yolks on some (omelette) days. My arteries are clean at 80 years of age as shown in a scan. Keeping in mind the phosphotidyl serine and choline in the yolks so vital for the developing and older brains.. and the cholesterol for: your sex and stress hormones, the synthesis of A and D Vitamins, and needed for the 40% cholesterol of your 3 trillion cells' double membrane!

  7. Fiber this, fiber that.. when a tablespoon of raw rolled oats mixed in with a breakfast blend does the trick.. without all the additional fattening carbs.

  8. Hi 🙂 I understand Dr Greger reccomends not to sprout chia seeds, but does it apply the same to lindseeds and/or other nuts? thanks!

  10. There's a third alternative to consume chía seeds that is neither whole nor ground/milled, which is soaked becoming some sort of jelly-like goo. I personally prefer milled seeds since I actually like the taste of all the foods I consume including flaxseeds and chía seeds, but for those who don't like them (the soaked seeds are practically tasteless) and consume them solely by its health benefits, it might be a good idea to soak chía seeds before consuming them provided that soaking them help them digest the seeds and absorbe their nutrients.

  11. 2:20 Apparently in Turkey, nutrition, dietetics and medical biochemistry researchers don't know how to properly write the names of species in binomial nomenclature.

  12. If you really want a weight loss program with over 500 medical studies and 3 years of real life application proven to work and it also has a $17 discount just click here and lose that weight now

  13. Would you absorb the nutrients from chia that has been soaked overnight, say in a chia seed pudding?

  14. I don’t understand how these foods are so good for us but yet some vegans still die of cancer or something. I am vegan btw

  15. Wat’Z up Doc… 🥕. Erm, so… If you microwave chai seeds in oatmeal or egg omelette, do we still get health benefits from it? Good show 🤭

  16. I would like to know how the ground chia seeds were used in the study. Was it one tbsp in a snack before first and last meal as in the whole chia study?

  17. Oat bran, insulin fiber and maltodextrin all inhibit weight loss. Ground chia seeds do not have any of those properties…

  18. I sent this vid and the one where you compare chia and ground flax to my Arivale dietician. She has sent it to the powers that be over there. Even they are a bit slow in changing their protocols.

  19. Soaking seeds then blending probably would be a better alternative than grinding denaturing by friction-heat/ might as well eat a twinkie. You look at the ancient chia that was used by original peoples a different animal and was considered money/food for the Royals then "The Forced March Food". And even today considered to be a hangover cure (the older species that is)

  20. This is bad advice, you are missing a critical topic. Chia and flax seeds are dangerously high in fat soluable phytoestrogens. Remember how everyone is up in arms because factory meat and dairy is high in estrogen from using soy feeds? If you think that is an issue eating chia and flax is far worse.

  21. Belly fat……

    1) Daily exercise
    2) Whole food plant based diet
    3) 16/8 Intermittent fasting

    No belly fat…

  22. If you have to grind chia and flax for their benefits, are they really supposed to be eaten by humans?
