Nutrition researchers gave 48 people two breakfast options. Both had 360 calories, including 110 calories from 1.5 cups of skim milk. One option was Quaker Old Fashioned Oatmeal, the other was General Mills Honey Nut Cheerios. Those who ate the oatmeal reported feeling less hungry over the next four hours. Researchers think the fibre that makes oatmeal gooey (beta-glucan) may be the reason.
Positive Tip: Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day and including oatmeal can make it one of the most satisfying.
