In the same study done by the UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY, they found that oatmeal ranked third in foods that are filling. This is because it’s really high in fiber, and soaks up a lot of water as well. They also contain a fiber called beta-glucan, which, according to the scientists at the WEST CHINA HOSPITAL, helps slow digestion and also helps you absorb carbs.
So next time you’re gearing up for a nice, healthy breakfast, opt for this treat over cereal.
Some people might think that liquids are less filling than solid foods. However, a study done by IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY found that fact might not always be true. They discovered that sometimes, especially when soup was involved, that liquids could
be just as filling. PENNSYLVANIA STATE UNIVERSITY did a similar study, where they found that when soup was
eaten at the beginning of a meal, the subjects would eat 20% fewer calories afterward. This has all been sealed by the fact that many scientists have discovered “routinely eating soup can reduce calorie intake, make you feel satisfied and promote weight loss over time.” You know the drill: less food equals fewer calories. It’s just science!
Just as an FYI– the reason we tell you to stick to broth based soups is that they tend to have fewer calories than their cream based brothers.
