Does Oatmeal Make You Gain Weight?

Oatmeal has the ability to accelerate and improve intestinal peristalsis and this is essential for healthy eating.

According to many nutritionists, oatmeal is among the healthiest foods. They are very nutritious, but also high in calories. For information - 100 g of oatmeal contains 389 kilocalories.

If mixed with yogurt, they become even more caloric. If you add a spoonful of honey, the calories jump up even more - by almost 70 on top. If nuts or fruit are added, it becomes a real calorie bomb. Even if these extras are not added, the oatmeal from which the oats are made are high in calories and the weight jumps up.

There are also claims, that you can lose weight from oatmeal or at least keep the weight off. This is relatively true and we must set a number of additional conditions.

Oatmeal is a complete food, because it contains a large amount of protein and slow carbohydrates. This means that if you eat a bowl for breakfast, you will not feel hungry for at least 3-4 hours for lunch or dinner. This is the action of slow carbohydrates.

Protein is 5 g for every 100 grams of oatmeal. Because they are a complete food, the people who consume them reduce the number of calories they consume per day. This is an ideal food for people who are active athletes who want to gain muscle mass.

It is said that a person can gain weight from everything if they are not careful with the amount of food they eats. There is no food that protects us from gaining weight.

If you want to eat dietary, you can eat oatmeal every day, but be careful with the amount.

It is not dietary to eat 100 g of oatmeal mixed with 2-3 tbsp. of yoghurt. It is correct to mix half a bucket of yogurt with 2-3 tbsp. of oatmeal and that way you will not have weight problems.

Eat lunch without bread. Eat 200 g of meat or fish with a large salad according to the season, without rice and potatoes. For an afternoon snack, eat one fruit - fiber, not fresh juice.

Dinner - again 200 g of meat and vegetables. If you include 20 minutes of training a day, you will not have a problem with weight.
