We all know that staying hydrated is important to our body’s overall function. Drinking water can be a great way to support weight-loss efforts because it helps to flush fat and toxins from the body so we’re better equipped to properly process what we eat and drink.
But then, if you had a certain seed to your water, it could potentially boost your weight loss results.

That’s right. The concept of adding chia seeds to water as a way to shed fat has been getting a lot of attention on TikTok.
The thing is, say experts, this could actually work. Ferraioli suggested to Insider that the amount of healthy fat in chia seeds can make an individual feel full fast.
Dietitian Taub-Dix added that this healthy fat combined with the protein naturally found in chia seeds can make you feel pretty satiated for an extended period of time, with the added benefit of not spiking your blood sugar.
Insider offers a suggested (and easy!) formula for putting chia seeds into your water: Pour two tablespoons of chia seeds inside a 10-ounce glass of water, then wait three to five minutes (but not much more than this) for the seeds to absorb the water and become soft enough to drink.
Just note: Some sources have suggested it’s normal if the seeds-and-water combo has a gelatinous consistency. So, this may not be appetizing for everyone! Luckily, just committing to drinking enough water per day can also help with your weight-loss efforts.
