One study compared appetite and calorie intake among 12 women who consumed two separate meals.
Before one of the meals they ate 200g of chickpeas, and before the other they ate two slices of white bread.
The women experienced a significant reduction in appetite and calorie intake after the chickpea meal when compared to the white bread meal.
Another study found participants who ate an average of 104g of chickpeas daily for 12 weeks felt fuller and ate less junk food, compared to then they didn’t eat chickpeas.
