We all know that one of the most important meals of the day is the breakfast. That is why we should eat healthy and nutritious foods for breakfast to energize our body for the rest of the day. Eating breakfast will also boost our metabolism.
People trying to lose weight should never avoid the breakfast because it helps us deal better with the hunger during the day
According to a study in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism, that included 36 women and men, the best food to eat in the morning is oatmeal.
These people were divided into three groups and each group had 350 calories per day. They all had the same lunch, but the first group drank only water for breakfast the second one ate cornflakes and the third one oatmeal.
In the next three hours, the people documented their satiety and their blood samples were analyzed to control their insulin levels and blood sugar.
The participants who ate oatmeal had fewer cravings during the afternoon and had 31 percent calories less for lunch.
The people who ate cornflakes for breakfast were hungrier in the next three hours and this also happened to the participants who drank only water.
As cornflakes raise the levels of the glucose in the blood and after a while there is a sudden drop in the sugar and people felt huge cravings. But oatmeal is longer present in the stomach and that is the reason why the participants felt satiety.
Oats can be added to various different meals and salads and here are the benefits that oats give to our bodies.
FEELING OF SATIATION
The satiety feeling is due to the fiber that the oats contain. Additionally, it helps digestion and helps to lose weight.
REGULATES HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
The blood pressure can be reduced by 30 percent when the oats are consumed regularly.
REDUCES THE LEVELS OF THE CHOLESTEROL
The fiber present in the oats ties together to the fat in our bodies and in this way reduces the cholesterol or LDL. It protects the blood vessels and the heart.
REDUCES THE RISK OF CANCER
There is a study according to which oats lower the risk of ovarian, prostate, breast, and colon cancer.
