She is warm and soothing and can get any day off to a good start, especially a cold one. Oatmeal is always there for you with nutty sweet flavor and a knack for helping to lower blood cholesterol, but it’s her high fiber content that can help boost your weight loss. Oatmeal is a pro at keeping you from feeling hungry before your next meal, and because she is a whole grain, she can help keep cravings for mid-morning sweets from sinking your diet. She comes in a few different varieties but is almost always a whole grain and unrefined.
