Oats are packed with fiber and healthy carbs that help increase your metabolic rate and thus burn fat quickly. Your weight-loss plan shouldn’t be based on oats as such a diet would lead to nutritional deficiencies.
Oats should be consumed for breakfast or as a snack, and usually in combination with milk or yogurt. These dairy products will add protein without adding empty calories and will make you feel fuller for longer.
Combine your oats with apple slices, bananas or cranberries to add the extra flavor without adding sugar.
If you still feel hungry soon after you’ve eaten, add nuts, seeds or cheese into your oats and go for larger flakes. If you eat larger flakes they will take longer to digest so you won’t feel hungry soon after breakfast.
Once you start to lose weight and are on the right path, have your oats with pieces of dark chocolate as a treat to help keep you motivated and stick to your weight-loss plan.
