If you are looking out to shed some extra kilos, it is imperative to maintain a healthy lifestyle, which not only includes regular workout but also clean eating. Inculcating the habit of clean eating can come to a great help in your weight loss journey. Since what we eat can make or break the deal, let's focus on one wondrous food item that could possibly boost weight loss - oatmeal. According to the book 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing, "Oats contain multiple nutrients and a gummy, water-soluble fibre and beta-glucan, which helps reduce unhealthy (LDL) cholesterol. They are also known to be a natural sedative, and excellent for easing indigestion." Rich in protein and fibre, oats help you remain full and prevent binge-eating. The soluble fibres in oats tend to absorb water in your stomach and become gel-like. They eventually swell up and take longer to digest, keeping you satiated for long. Having oats in breakfast can give a nice kick-start to your day. Here is a list of five nutritious oats recipes that you can easily make in the comforts of your kitchen.
