Feel Fuller For Longer With Oatmeal

If you’re looking for a pre-workout breakfast, try oatmeal. It has more protein than other grains with 6 grams of protein per cup. Plus, oatmeal is made of complex carbohydrates. These digest more slowly, which lends you more energy throughout your workout instead of giving you a sugar spike.

If weight management is your goal, oatmeal helps with that too. A 2016 study indicates that oatmeal helps people feel fuller for longer. That same year, research in Nutrients found that oats increase metabolism and promote weight loss in obese people.
