Is porridge good for weight loss?

Oatmeal diet slimming chocolate porridge vegan

It’s no secret that oats are healthy and rich in numerous vitamins, nutrients and proteins. Porridge is a gruel made from oatmeal and milk or water. Due to the complex carbohydrates it contains, oatmeal ensures a longer feeling of satiety and there is no feeling of hunger until lunch. Whether porridge is good for weight loss depends on how you prepare it and depending on the toppings, the calories can vary from 200 to 600. Especially peanut butter, honey, nuts and seeds can turn your breakfast into a real calorie bomb. So use the toppings sparingly and weigh everything with a kitchen scale. The ready-made porridge mixes from the supermarket are usually full of sugar and calories and you should avoid them.
