We all know that breakfast is the most essential meal of the day. It is crucial particularly if you want to get rid of the excess fat. You should definitely opt for the best food you can if you feel hungry around 10 or 11 pm. According to the study that was conducted by the Annals of Nutrition, oatmeal is your ideal choice.
36 women and men were included in this study. They were separated into 3 groups and all of them consumed 350 calories. The first group actually skipped the breakfast (drank only water for 3h), the other consumed cornflakes and the third one had oatmeal breakfast.
They gave blood samples in order to monitor the blood sugar and insulin levels – they had to record their safety state – and in the end, they all had the same lunch.
The results were the following: the oatmeal group was the least hungry group and they consumed 31% fewer calories at lunch. After 3 hours, the cornflakes group was really hungry as well as the water group. What are the reasons for this situation?
Oatmeal is kept in the stomach for the longer period of time while cornflakes increase the blood glucose, causing the quick and sudden drop.
Oatmeal is the right choice if you really want to lose weight because the 30-50% fewer calories will be felt and noticed for a longer period of time.
Oat’s derivatives (flakes and pulp) and oats are delicious and healthy. You can also have oats as a side dish, supplement stew, with salad or with many desserts.
The large amounts of fiber in the oats expand the volume of the amount already consumed in the digestive system where the digestion is actually stimulated by fiber. That is the main reason why you should opt for oatmeal if you want to get rid of the excess pounds.
Moreover, it lowers the bad cholesterol, reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack, protects the blood vessels and the heart due to its fiber content.
The presence of the lignin – active ingredient – in its content, oat is able to stabilize the blood pressure and lower it to 30%.
According to one study that was published in the most eminent daily journals, oats can significantly decrease the risk of prostate, ovarian and breast cancer.
