Description:

There are about 90 Calories in a 1/2 cup serving of Black Beans.

Will Black Beans Help Me Lose Weight?


Yes! Black Beans are low in calories, high in protein and fiber and have an assortment of critically important nutrients. These nutrients help you with your "long term hunger"- when you get enough nutrients over time, you'll feel less hungry.

They are also an ideal food to help you with your "short term hunger." Simply put, they fill you up, and crowd out any "bad stuff" you might be tempted to eat.

Given the low calorie content of beans, beans can help to quickly get you full without adding too many fat or calories to your day.

Should People With Type 2 Diabetes Eat Beans?

According to Jonny Bowden, Phd, "beans are the ultimate blood sugar regulator." The high fiber content means that they raise blood sugar very slowly.

Why Do Beans Give You Gas? How Can I Avoid This?

Beans do give you gas and there ARE ways to avoid this. This article explains how to eat beans and NOT get gas!


Do Beans Really Help Prevent Cancer?

According to a broad body of research, regular bean consumption has been associated with measurably lower levels of cancer risk.

Beans are very high in antioxidants. The rule of thumb here is the darker the bean, the greater the antioxidant power.

One study has shown that black beans contain 10 times the antioxidant power of an Orange!

Are Beans Beans Really Good For Your Heart?

As it turns out beans are good for you heart. As you can see from the (updated) calorie and nutrition label on this page, black beans contain high levels of folate and magnesium.

Folate (not folic acid!) is probably best known as an essential element for pregnant women, especially early in their pregnancy. Researchers have now been able to identify a correlation between higher folate consumption and lower risk of heart disease.

Studies have also shown that higher magnesium consumption is also associated with improved heart function.

If I Am Following The PEERtrainer Cheat System, Are Beans Limited In Any Way?


Absolutely not. As you can see, beans have some very powerful benefits. For those of you following the Cheat System, (link to download it for free) we have been creating recipes to help you implement the advice.

A new and very popular ones featuring black beans is the "5 Minute Insane Man Hunger Cure" recipe. A very tasty power bowl.

We have also created a tasty and easy to make black bean soup recipe. If you add green vegetables to black bean soup you will add huge doses of Vitamin A, C and K, which will round out the nutrients. Note that Black Beans and Greens all have measurable amounts of Calcium in them. As you layer in these ingredients together, you'll start to give your body literally everything it needs.

Something that is pretty to look at and valuable is what most people think of when they think of jewels. Add sometimes our thoughts go back centuries to the Egyptians wearing these bright and shinny gems. Did you ever think that these gems would be used in the making of watches? Most people don't realize that they are a valuable part in the productions of watch making. watches-jewels.net

While, a major part of the web world is using PHP for the web-sites and web-applications development, there is a group of fellows who have doubt on the capabilities of hyper text pre-processor. Recently, the hot topic for discussion between the web experts is that why should we prefer PHP over other scripting languages. www.thephpwebdevelopment.com
