We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially if you want to lose weight.
But if you already about 10 or 11 hours later you start to feel hungry, start thinking about how to choose better foods for the most important meal of the day.

The best choice is – oatmeal, it is confirmed by the latest study published in the Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism.

The study included 36 men and women who were divided into three different groups: the first was eating porridge for breakfast, the other was eating cornflakes (corn flakes), and the third has skipped breakfast and only drank water.
Both the first and second groups have consumed 350 calories in total. Through the next three hours, all participants had to repeatedly record the state of satiety, and they gave blood samples in order to monitor the blood sugar and insulin levels. After that they all get the same lunch that was supposed to consume.

As they expected, the scientists 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 for lunch. Besides that, oatmeal had a favorable effect in people who are overweight, they consumed 50 percent less calories for lunch.

Those who ate cornflakes for breakfast had the same feeling of hunger only three hours after breakfast as well as respondents who drank only water (and ate the same number of calories for lunch as well as the persons who had no breakfast).

Why is this so, even though the subjects ate the same caloric value of cornflakes and porridge? Because oatmeal longer retained in the stomach, while cornflakes (which has high blood sugar) causes a large increase in blood glucose, and its quick and sudden drop.

BENEFICIAL EFFECTS OF OATMEAL

Oats and its derivatives such as pulp and flakes are extremely healthy, but also very good food. If you think that eating oatmeal is only for breakfast, you are wrong. It can be mixed with almost all dishes, as a side dish, supplement stews or salads or various sweet versions. It may be the basis for healthy desserts, such as cookies, writes The Huffington Post.

The fibers which oatmeal contains increase the volume of the consumed amount in our digestive system, which will make you feel full long time after eating the oatmeal. In addition, the fiber stimulates digestion and the function of the metabolism and is an ideal food for those who want to lose weight.
