The Breakfast Food That Helps You Eat 31% Less at Lunch

You try to eat breakfast every single morning—it’s the most important meal of the day, after all, especially if you’re trying to lose weight.

Eating oatmeal for breakfast makes you feel fuller, longer, and significantly reduces the number of calories you eat at lunch, according to new research published in the Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism.

Researchers split 36 men and women into 3 different groups: One group ate oatmeal for breakfast, another ate corn flakes, and the third group skipped the meal altogether.

Then they were given a liquid lunch and told to drink until they felt full.start_article (1)
