Oatmeal is one of the most healthy diet foot. Eating oatmeal is so good for your body. This food contains a lot of fibers, minerals, and vitamins.
Oatmeal is also a good source of protein, complex carbohydrates and iron. Another health benefit to eating oatmeal is that the nutrients and fiber it contains can help you lose weight and fight off certain types of cancer.
Over 40 studies show that eating oatmeal may help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. According to Quaker, all it takes is 3/4 cup of oatmeal each day to help lower cholesterol. The soluble fiber in oats helps remove LDL or "bad" cholesterol, while maintaining the good cholesterol that your body needs.
The soluble fiber in oatmeal absorbs a considerable amount of water which significantly slows down your digestive process. This result is that you'll feel full longer, i.e. oatmeal can help you control your weight.
One thing for sure, if you eat more oatmeal you can drastically improve the quality of your life.
