      Oatmeal Diet

oatmealdietThe oatmeal diet is famous for helping with weight management, lowering the risk of cancer and lessening cholesterol.

Typically, the oatmeal diet has three stages which last a total of 30 days. During your first two stages, you replace one or two foods a day with oatmeal.

During your first week, the list of allowed foods is limited just to oatmeal. In the last part of the second phase that listing will be filled with bananas, berries, apples, celery, carrots, chicken breast, fish, coffee and sugar-free pudding.

Your third phase starts after the first 30 days of oatmealing. After that you can return to your standard diet, seldom adding oatmeal (only once per day.)

The pros of an oatmeal diet:

  • healthy weight loss
  • lowers cholesterol
  • may lower the possibility of certain types of cancer

Cons of an oatmeal diet

  • Commercially manufactured and packaged oats almost certainly contain considerable amounts of gluten. This type of protein can be adverse for some people, especially those with celiac illness.
  • For those who cannot tolerate gluten, you would need to eat only certified gluten free oatmeal on this diet. That is because the weak condition of the digestive system in people with this illness, can cause nutrient deficiencies.

The characteristics of an oatmeal diet:

  • Be sure to have a consultation with your physician to know this diet is the most suitable for you
  • Don’t forget to drink 2-2,5 liters of water per day as a minimum
  • Check the most appropriate sort of oatmeal production for you
  • You have to drink one glass of warm water each morning
