This cheap and healthy meal guarantees a long-term weight loss.
Everybody knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially if you want to lose weight. But, if you already start to feel hungry in about 10 of 11 o’clock, start thinking about how to choose better ingredients for the most important meal of the day.
The best choice is – oatmeal, it is confirmed by the latest study published in the magazine Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism.
The study included 36 men and women who were divided into 3 different groups: the first was eating oatmeal for breakfast, the second one was eating cornflakes, and the third skipped breakfast and only drank water.
Both the first and second groups consumed 350 calories in total. Through the next 3 hours, all participants had to repeatedly record the state of satiety, and also gave blood samples in order to monitor the blood sugar and insulin levels. After that, they all got the same lunch that they were suppose to consume until they were full.
As expected, the researchers confirmed that the group of people who ate oatmeal was the least hungry during the morning and afternoon, and they ate 31 percent less calories at lunch. Besides that, oatmeal had the most favorable effect in overweight people they consumed even 50 percent less calories during lunch.
The participant who ate cornflakes for breakfast, already in 3 hours after having breakfast had the same feeling of hunger, as well as the participants who only drank water (and ate the same number of calories for lunch as well as the people who did not ate breakfast).
Why this is so, even though the subjects ate the same caloric value of cornflake and oatmeal? Because oatmeal longer retains in the stomach, while cornflakes (which contains a lot of sugar), causes a large increase in blood glucose, but also a quick and sudden drop.
This research is just one of many that confirms how much useful is the oatmeal, if we want to lose weight, because those 31 and 50 percent less calories will certainly be felt and noticed over a longer period of time.
