Nutrition & Dieting/lentils

Question
Are lentils a protein or carb?

Is it a bean?

And is it a weight-loss product?

Thanks for your help.

Answer
Hi

For 1 cup (230 calories) there are 40g of carbs, but 16g of those are fiber, and 18g of protein.

It falls in the category of beans.

Lentils can be very good for weight loss due to their high fiber which will keep you feeling full and their low fat.

I hope this helps.

Experience

As an ISSA certified personal trainer it is my job to provide nutrition plans on a daily basis for my clients and offer nutritional help to those in need. I believe that nutrition is one of the most important aspects to getting into shape. My reason being is that if you workout out for one hour, four times a week then that's only 2% of your week. If you sleep 8 hours a night that's another 33%. So during the other 65% of your time it's nutrition that makes changes in peoples lives. So focusing more on nutrition has helped many of my clients get the results they wanted.

Past/Present Clients
