How porridge can help in weight loss

Porridge has been known for its many health benefits for a long period of time. Did you know that it can be an effective diet for weight loss? In this matter,there are two most common types of porridge which will help in the journey of achieving your desired body results.

The most common and most consumed types of porridge are those made from oats and millet. These cereals are common in most African households and are easily available at the local stores. Oats, just like millet, contain high levels of dietary fiber which is resistant to digestive enzymes, therefore your body does not process it as caloric intake. They are gluten free, good for digestive functions, helps your stomach feel full with smaller portions, and keeps you full for longer periods of time than most other foods do. Furthermore, the high fiber content makes you feel satiated for longer periods of time, which helps to reduce unnecessary eating throughout the day.

Drinking this porridge mix for three meals a day and adding one-half cup of fruit or raw vegetables to each meal can be a good way to lose weight in a short period of time. You can change or mix more nutritious foods that help with weightloss to spice up the taste of your porridge and keep you motivated.

Additionally, include other weightloss activities like exercise, drinking enough water, reducing salt intake and reducing refined carbs for maximum results. If do not take a few healthy tips into consideration, even oatmeal and millet can lead to weight gain. It can instantly turn from a slimming breakfast to a blood sugar-spiking food that can be harmful to your waistline.
