They may not seem sexy, but protein-and-fiber-loaded beans and other legumes can help build a better body. “Adding beans to your diet could help you lose weight, even without cutting calories,” says Wendy Bazilian, DrPH, MA, RD, author of The Superfoods Rx Diet. On average, people who eat beans weigh 6.6 pounds less, yet eat 199 more daily calories than people who don’t eat them. Beans can lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, reduce your risk of diabetes, and help you lose belly fat. To avoid flatulence, ease into them slowly and take Beano until your body adjusts.
