What are chia seeds?
Chia is the edible seed of Salvia hispanica, a flowering plant in the mint family (Lamiaceae) native to Central America, or of the related Salvia columbariae of the southwestern United States and Mexico. Chia seeds are oval and gray with black and white spots, having a diameter around 1 millimetre (0.04 in). The seeds are hydrophilic, absorbing up to 12 times their weight in liquid when soaked and developing a mucilaginous coating that gives chia-based creams and beverages a distinctive gel texture.

Can chia seeds help you lose weight?
This is debatable. They have a lot of fiber and can help you feel fuller longer. So as part of a healthy way of eating there are benefits to chia seeds. But, they aren’t a magic diet pill. Adding chia pudding to an unhealthy diet won’t do much good.
