Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism made a study and proved that best choice for breakfast is oatmeal.
In this study were included 36 women and men. They were divided into 3 different groups and all of the participants consumed 350 calories. First group consumed oatmeal for breakfast, the second one cornflakes and the third one didn’t eat breakfast, only consumed water. In the next 3 hours participants continuously measured their state of satiety. They also gave blood samples for control of blood sugar and insulin levels. All of the participants consumed the same food for lunch.
The participants from the second group that ate cornflakes felt hunger three hours after the breakfast. Cornflakes have the same quantity of calories as the breakfast of the first group. The difference is that oatmeal retains much longer in the stomach while the cornflakes increase the glucose levels in the blood.
We can conclude that oatmeal is one of the best choices for breakfast if you want to lose weight. This is due to the fact that it has 31 – 50 % less calories that you will notice after longer period of consuming.
Oats and its derivates such as flakes and pulp are tasty and very healthy at the same time. It is important to know that you should combine oatmeal with almost every salad, supplement stew and every dish.
You will feel full for a longer period of timeOats contain fibers that increase the volume when they are in the digestive system. Also fiber stimulates the digestion.
Weight loss, in the context of medicine, health, or physical fitness, refers to a reduction of the total body mass, due to a mean loss of fluid, body fat or adipose tissue or lean mass, namely bone mineral deposits, muscle, tendon, and other connective tissue. Weight loss can either occur unintentionally due to malnourishment or an underlying disease or arise from a conscious effort to improve an actual or perceived overweight or obese state. "Unexplained" weight loss that is not caused by reduction in calorific intake or exercise is called cachexia and may be a symptom of a serious medical condition. Intentional weight loss is commonly referred to as slimming. Wikipedia.org [LOSE WEIGHT]
