Fibre is the secret to losing weight without hunger. One Agriculture study found that those who increased their daily fibre intake from 12 grams to 24 absorbed 375 few kilojoules per day than those who ate the same amount of food but less fibre. Do nothing to your diet other than add more of the rough stuff, and you will lose up to four kilos in a year, effortlessly.
Instant oats are one of the easiest ways to get more real fibre into your diet. Plus, new research indicates that oats can also cut your risk of high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, and even reduce your risk of weight gain. Oats also have 10 grams of protein per 1/2-cup serving, so they deliver steady muscle-building energy.
