This is our fifth and final entry in the fat-fighting-food series. So far, we have identified apples, beans, dairy, as well as nuts and seeds as the food items which help rid the body of the excess fats.
Another item that needs to be added in the list is oatmeal. As you very well know, oatmeal is an excellent source of soluble and dietary fibers. It also contains essential fatty acids, protein and complex carbohydrates which all provide health benefits to the body.
Instead of having bacon and eggs or a piece of sweet doughnuts for breakfast, you can substitute it with a bowl of slow-cooking oatmeal. Aside from giving you enough energy to face the day, oatmeal is very rich in fiber which helps reduce the craving factor after you eat it.
Oatmeal takes longer to chew, eat and digest. As a result, you will feel full for a longer amount of time. In addition, it helps stabilize your sugar level during the day so you will not have those unnecessary cravings. As a fat-fighting food, oatmeal is definitely the one to beat because it also provides great benefits to your heart.
