Chia seeds have a gluten index of 1 for a 1 ounce serving, are low calorie, and can be used with any diet or weight loss program

What if there was a natural food which would slow down the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar while adding protein?

 Chia Seed - Dieter's Dream Food

There is, it is called Chia.

Chia's hydrophilic structure holds water, so when mixed with sauces, drinks, yogurt, salad, dressings, cream cheese, jellies and preserves, salsa, hot/cold cereal, dips, puddings, soups, etc. It displaces calories and fat without diluting flavor. In addition to extending foods by 50% - 75% calories and fat have been reduced without compromising flavor, with an ingredient that is 90% water. Chia gel is also a great fat replacer for baked goods and special qualities for sugar control and weight loss.

Natural Remi-Teas Weight Loss Case Study interview with David Rosa and Michael D'Amico

How much weight have you lost?
65 pounds
 
Over how long of a time period?
7 months
 
How old are you?
48
 
Anything that you can do now that you can't do than.
I can chase the kids around and keep up with them. I noticed playing some sports is a lot easier.
 
Which sports are you referring to?
Just whether it's basketball or just playing with the kids, softball or anything like that. My son would have me playing flag football. It was a lot easier to run.
 
Your son is how old?
My son is thirty. To go out and keep up with the young guys is a little amazing.
 
When did you feel you needed to do something about your health?
I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old grand baby and I wanted to be around. You want to be able to keep up.
 
What where you doing before, that was making it difficult for you to lose weight?
Eating donuts and drinking a lot of pop.
 
Why did you decided to lose the weight naturally?
I didn't want to do anything with caffeine high or something. There is a lot of products to speed up your metabolism. I eat more natural foods, salads. 
Using things like apple cider vinegar on your salad as opposed to bologna sandwiches. I was eating a lot of wheat bread as opposed to white bread. I was just trying to stay away from high calories.
 
Are you using any natural remedies in your diet?
I would eat dried tart cherries. They are just as easy and just as good to eat as donuts. They also help with your digestive system. I would use Apple Cider Vinegar, Chia Acai energy bars, and Yerba Mate. I would drink Yerba Mate throughout the day. Sometimes in the morning, I would heat up the water at work.
 
Would you drink it hot or cold?
Either way. instead of drinking Pepsi, I would drink Yerba Mate. Yerba Mate helps as far as weight loss goes and was kind of a pick me up. It helps you wake up.
 
How did you first learn about chia seeds?
I would mostly use them when I ate Chia Acai bars.  I would make sure I would eat Chia Acai bars in the morning. Than I would add chia to orange juice and 
apple juice. I was surprised that I didn't feel that hungry. People would offer me donuts in the morning and I would say no thank you.
 
Did it cost you more to change your diet to a natural diet
I wouldn't say it would cost much more in regards to food. I was eating more chicken, fish as opposed to red meats. It cost less to drink yerba mate as opposed to pop. Yerba Mate can get you 3 cups out of one teabag. A 12 pack of
pop is about 4-5 dollars.
 
How often would you eat the Chia Acai bar?
I was eating one in the morning and at lunch.
 
What did you do in terms of exercising.
Pretty much the treadmill and walking. I would go on the treadmill for an hour or so. I would change elevations. I mixed it up quite a bit. I would start at walking speed. I would walk 10 minutes or so depending on the day and gradually increase the speed.
 
Do you have any joint issues.
No. Actually I feel a whole lot better now. I got a little more pep at the end of the day and can go run with the kids.
 
Did you get any temptation from you co-workers.
They notice that my clothes are loose. They ask me what I am doing and what I am eating and I would show them. I am eating my salads and so forth. I eat the Chia Acai bars and drink the Yerba Mate. What would it be like if you had not lost the weight? I would need more energy.
 
Could you do this for years to come?
Sure. I would eat dry tart cherries instead of donuts, fruits and oranges. I actually felt lot better after eating the fruits because it gave me a lot more energy. I work underground. It is hot and dusty. The chia seeds keep you 
hydrated.

More about Chia Seeds and Weight Loss

    In James F. Sheer's book “ The Magic Of Chia” Revival Of An Ancient Wonder Food it was written "For centuries the Indians of the southwest and Mexico used this tiny little seed as a staple food. Known as the running food, its use as a high-energy endurance food has been recorded as far back as the ancient Aztecs.

    It was said the Aztec warriors subsisted on the Chia seeds during the conquests. The Indians of the southwest would eat as little as a teaspoon full when going on a 24hr. forced march. Indians running form the Colorado River to the California coast to trade turquoise for seashells would only bring the Chia seeds for their nourishment."

    Chia seeds help you to contol your appetite to aid with weight loss especially combined with an intense competitive event. We recommend adding physical activity to your weight loss programs. 

    For example a prominent therapist was working with elite Kenyan runners before a marathon. He said most runners would go to a pasta party prior to a marathon. A reason The Kenyan's would do much better is most would drink plenty of water and get hydrated days before the marathon and avoid the pasta party.

  • Name: Michael D'Amico from Madison, Ohio

    Comments: I am a 41 year old runner and I am always looking for ways to improve my time. When I first took the Chia seeds in a bottle of water before a workout, I felt full after the workout even though I had run a couple miles and not eaten for 5 hours. With a regular regimen of running workouts and a daily dose of Chia seeds in an 8 ounce glass of water, I was able to run my best ever in the Chicago Marathon by a 1/2 hour.

    Chia Seeds help keep you hydrated and because they are easily digestible, you will not get stomach cramping. As a bonus, they are high in protein. Three tablespoons of chia seeds dry are equal to 12.9grams of protein. 

    Chia seeds can be a convenient altenative to a protein drink. If you take chia seeds dry you do not have to mix, but be sure to have water or some other liquid to drink before taking them. 

  • Name: Tracy:

        Comments: Love the CHIA!!!! I cannot recommend it enough! I noticed a         fabulous difference in my weight in 1 week and it is helping me tremendously to prepare for my upcoming wedding.

    Chia's hydrophillic structure holds water, so when mixed with sauces, drinks, yogurt, salad, dressings, cream cheese, jellies and preserves, salsa, hot/cold cereal, dips, puddings, soups, etc., it displaces calories and fat without diluting flavor. 

    In addition to extending foods by 50% - 75% calories and fat have been reduced without compromising flavor, with an ingredient that is 90% water. Chia gel is also a great fat replacer for baked goods and special qualities for sugar control and weight loss. 

    If you try mixing a spoonful of Chia Seeds in a glass of water and leaving it for approximately 30 minutes or so, when you return the glass will appear to contain not seeds or water, but an almost solid gelatin. 


   

    If you check the internet, you will see we have the best price on organically grown chia seeds. Our prices are so good, you may wonder about the quality. I am very picky about the quality and package in the cleanest conditions. We offer chia seeds for heavy users and for those who want to try them out. We even have chia in sample packs which you can put in your pocket, wallet or purse.
