Oatmeal is a wonderful meal option for weight loss, since it is a whole grain that takes the body time to digest. To make your oatmeal as weight loss-friendly as possible for optimal Phentermine 37.5mg success, review the following tips.
Add Healthy Fat Sources
Healthy fats, such as nut butter, nuts, and assorted seeds, make oatmeal even hardier. Such fats “help blunt the blood sugar spike and keep you feeling full for a longer period of time,” potentially helping you eat less throughout the day,” says Anya Rosen, MS, RD, LD.
If the oatmeal is unsweetened, consider flavoring it “with cinnamon, cayenne, and ginger,” says Colleen Wysocki, MS, RDN, CLC.
If you make overnight oats, try using kefir instead of milk.
“Kefir contains more gut-friendly probiotics than yogurt, which studies indicate may promote satiety by increasing absorption of nutrients and stable blood sugars, as well as decrease systemic inflammation leading to better weight control and a reduction in weight gain,” says Caroline Margolis, RDN.
Try Baked Oatmeal
Baking your oatmeal turns it into a savory casserole dish.
“Both the protein in the eggs and the fiber in the oatmeal add to satiety to curb cravings,” says Christa Brown, MS, RDN.
Work With Roasted Veggies & Mushrooms
Oatmeal is commonly associated with fruits, nuts, and seeds, but vegetables and mushrooms can also be used.
“Consider making a savory oatmeal that is packed with roasted vegetables as toppings such as broccoli, sweet potato, and mushrooms,” says Andrew Akhaphong, MS, RD, LD. “Not only will you be increasing fiber to support fullness, but you will also help support insulin regulation, healthy cholesterol levels, and increasing nutrients into your oatmeal routine.”
