Black beans are packed with fiber and protein. That means they’ll satisfy even the most intense hunger, and will keep you feeling full and energetic for hours. Black beans help to regulate your body’s glucose level throughout the day, which means your metabolism will be chugging away at top speed, burning through any extra calories you’ve taken on so that you can stay slim and trim. Plus, the fiber content of black beans will help your cholesterol.
