Well, first of all I am not a dietitian or any expert on knowledge of losing weight but I am eating it and I thought of sharing my perception 😀
If you ever wonder that what actually oats does or only eating oats can affect the losing weight or when to eat oats for losing weight. There’s many questions around this item I guess and I was also always wondering about these type of questions about oats and I think you understand now that I actually wanna lose weight 😓
So let’s get to the point…
Question 1: Can you lose weight from eating only oats?
Answer: No, you can’t sadly 😓 but you can actually lose weight gradually if you maintain a healthy eating policy, this process is actually slow so if you want your weight changes drastically then you have to do workout also obviously.
Question 2: What actually happens when you eat oats?
Answer: Oats is a great source of fiber and it contains magnesium, potassium, vitamin B6, iron and many other nutrients which is very helpful for health so actually oats have many health benefit other than losing weight like, it can improve blood sugar level and lowers the cholesterol level and increase the metabolism and also it improves the digestive system so you won’t feel bloated so decrease the constipation problem. As oats have fiber so when you eat it you tend to feel full for quite some time which is actually good for loosing weight and your energy level will boost up.
Question 3: Now, the main question is how oats have been helping me?
Answer: I’ve been eating oats for 4 months now and I think it helps me in some way…
Eating process: take 4 tbls of quacker oats + 1/3 tbls of powder milk and mix this into 1/2 mug of water and cook for 3 mins. Then let this cool down and eat with 2 medium banana or 2 small banana plus 1 apple before 8 am.
I eat oats at the morning 5-6 days a week because I have 6 days of office and at holiday (Saturday) I eat bread or rice. As the lunch time is around 2 pm I always feel full until 11:30-12:00 and maybe after that I feel little hungry but the good thing is when I eat oats after that I feel really satisfy with my meal.
And I feel energetic because of the improvement of my digestive system.
May be you are thinking if I had lose any weight or not 😅 actually not that much (only around 2.5 pounds) because I told you before only eating oats can not help you lose weight that easily and for me its even more slow process because I have a very sedentary lifestyle. Oh and my skin getting kind of improvements for eating oats regularly 😏
