Oats + Weight loss Tea
Did you know that just eating breakfast raises your metabolism by 11 percent? Oatmeal is one of the most healthiest breakfast cereals of them all. If you are looking to lose weight and get your body in great shape, you should start to include oats as a staple food in your diet along with a cup of Skinny Time Tea.
Oats are the perfect meal to start your day because they break down slowly in the stomach, giving you long-lasting energy. They are also full of water-soluble fiber that plays a huge role in making you feel full over a longer period of time giving you a sustained energy release. Studies also show that oatmeal maintains steady blood sugar, reduces cholesterol and fights against obesity, diabetes, colon cancer and heart disease. But did you know that Oats can also help you lose visceral fat? Visceral fat, or belly fat is, is a type of body fat that is internal and surrounds your tummy organs. This fat pushes out the tummy and makes it look way bigger.
So oats are a bit of a wonder food but they are also a bland cereal. Thats ok, as you can enhance its flavour by adding fruits. Simply throw in some blueberries and raspberries and you add a powerful punch of antioxidants. Antioxidants fight against cancer, heart disease & multitude of other conditions. Blueberries have also been shown to preserve vision. This potent fruit rates highest in antioxidants levels amongst over 40 fruits and vegetables.
Not bad for your first meal of your day right? Oatmeal however, doesn’t just have to be restricted to just breakfast. You can eat oats a few hours before your exercise session to help energize your workout. And by adding oatmeal to your smoothies you have included some vitamins as well. It is also a great as a crumbing for chicken drumsticks or breast. Also, try adding them to muffins.
Make sure you buy the unsweetened, unflavoured variety of oats. Pre-flavoured oats often comes loaded with sugar, colours and preservatives. If you want oats with a little more texture, try out steel-cut oats. Although they take a little longer to cook they are worth the effort. This variety of oats has a lower glycemic index meaning the actually break down slower than regular oats so they keep you fuller for longer. Steel cut oats have a more of chewier texture and stronger flavour than plain rolled oats.
