Oatmeal has long been considered as one of the most common breakfast foods. It is especially popular in packaged boxes that contain flavored packets of oatmeal. However, many do not know just how beneficial oatmeal can be to the body. Anyone involved in the fitness and nutrition world in any capacity or those competing in the Somanabolic Muscle Maximizer will easily be able to tell you that oatmeal is a staple in just about any diet.
Oatmeal For Weight Loss/Gain
Many of us are not entirely concerned about the minor affects that certain foods have within our body, but rather we only worry about the possible outcomes that all those affects could cause. That is what makes oatmeal great though, because it can ultimately help you with both losing and gaining weight. How is this so? Oatmeal is a very filling dish and can keep you from feeling hungry throughout the morning if you put it as your breakfast meal when trying to lose weight. It is also very calorie dense and carb rich, making it the perfect food to eat or even add in shakes (easier to consume) when trying to gain weight and increase muscle mass.
Oatmeal Is Healthy
Simply put, you always want to look at the risk-to-benefit when considering whether something should be a part of your diet. Obviously, there is not a lot of comparison analysis put into thought when deciding whether something like oatmeal, apples, and tuna would be good to include or not. We tend to generalize certain foods and come to a conclusion too quickly. There are many other foods that you may consider as good, but what is special about oatmeal is that it is genuinely healthy and is practically only beneficial to your body.
Oatmeal Is Not Always Great
There are some choices of oatmeal that are not as effective for any diet. For example, flavored packets of oatmeal contain a lot of sugar and are processed foods so they should not be in your diet. There is often a minimal impact by these ingredients, but you can still make your own oatmeal with fresh fruits, oats, and Splenda or a similar zero calorie sweetener. Aside from that, when trying to lose weight you will not want to choose any incredibly high calorie type of oats – such as steel cut oats, due to the fact that the caloric intake (increased risk of weight loss failure) will surpass the benefits of eating oatmeal.
So, we can easily conclude that oatmeal is viewed as a healthy and beneficial food. We can also easily say that oatmeal should be found in just about everybody’s diet. It is definitely a food that you would want to eat first thing in the morning though, and you will want to play around with recipes if you cannot handle the taste of plain oatmeal. Ultimately, the health benefits of oatmeal are obvious and it is strongly suggested that you add this as one of your main breakfast meals regardless of what your fitness goals are as it remains nutritionally beneficial to you.
