One of the biggest benefits of eating oats is the effect it has on reducing the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in your body, the “bad” cholesterol. The soluble fibre in oats helps reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream, and adding fruits can increase the amount of soluble fibre you’re getting, so it’s a win-win. All that healthy fibre in oatmeal can have a profound effect on improving your cardiovascular health

Eating oats for weight loss is also a great habit that’s easy to follow. Not only does it taste great, but the body digests oatmeal at a slower pace, keeping blood sugar levels steady, your energy levels up, and reduces your hunger cravings. You’ll feel fuller all morning and will be able to resist the temptation to snack. A good oats breakfast is definitely part of a clean eating diet plan that will help you drop weight easily.

With some fruits, spices, and other tasty ingredients this healthy staple can be transformed into something sweet, creamy, and satisfying. It’s the perfect way to start your day with a metabolism-boosting meal.
