For people trying to lose weight and enhance well-being, it's a little miracle: chia, a tiny seed that the Aztecs used for centuries as a super food, provides a complete source of dietary protein with more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon and more fiber—but fewer carbs—than rice, grains, and corn. In fact, chia is a gluten-free natural appetite suppressant that helps regene ...more

Okay, I think I have officially jumped onto the Chia bandwagon.
I first heard about eating Chia about a month ago, when the technician at my daughter's orthodontist office mentioned that she had chia pudding for breakfast. I asked her if she meant chia, as is Chia Pets (Chi-Chi-Chi-Chia) which are advertised for sale every year at Christmas time.
Yes, she said, those same seeds could be eaten, and to make chia pudding you just mixed the seeds into soy milk or almond milk, let it sit over night, an

There's nothing wrong with this book. Overall, I think the advice about losing weight and exercising isn't harmful (although covered just as well in other books), and I'm assuming all the information about chia is accurate.

This was a very readable and informative book. Whenever possible I believe that nutrition and lifestyle should trump drugs in altering our health. A few years back we used flax to lower Doug's cholesterol 30 points in 6 months time. Grant is running track and having a difficult time keeping weight on because of his body type.

Interesting book with a lot of information on the nutritional value of Chia seeds and recipes and ways for incorporating them into the diet.

This book is chuck full of valuable health information about the wonders of chia seeds. It also includes great recipes and helpful tips on incorporating these seeds into your diet. I found the information very easy to understand and feel very hopeful in the ease of including these seeds into my daily diet.

I skimmed a good bit of this book and lots of it is recipes but the basic information is good and I plan on trying to work some chia seeds into my diet. I've had several friends and coworkers recommend them so what they hey?

This is a very comprehensive book answering: Why Chia? and How Chia?

There wasn't a whole lot of information that was new to me, but it was a great consolidation of all pertinent points while being extremely reader friendly.
