How does cereal help with weight loss?

8/24 10:33:04

When you eat a breakfast cereal composed of "whole grain", what you are essentially doing is supplying your body with rich dietary fibre, low glycemic index carbohydrate and essential minerals.

The dietary fibre present in the cereal, helps reduce bad cholesterol, helps remove toxic wastes in your colon, aids with digestion and also slows down the "rate" at which sugar is released from the food, hence stabilizing your blood sugar. The dietary fibre also helps you feel "full" and satiated for long, and hence you will not feel like eating snacks in between breakfast and lunch.

Whole grains have a low glycemic index, so the sugars are released slowly in a more balanced manner. It's also relatively low on calories. The minerals present in the cereal will help with digestion and also assist with fat metabolism, thus aiding weight loss.

So cereal does not directly cause weight loss, but it works indirectly to assist with your weight reduction.

If you are looking for weight loss, it's important to avoid three factors - refined sugar, saturated fats and trans fats. While purchasing a pack of cereal, be sure to check up on these factors. Avoid cereals that have too many additives and colours. Many brands end up adding a lot of sugar to their processed cereal, making it a virtual "no no" for a food. 

One can also buy a pack of raw oats and cook them for breakfast. Oats are whole grains that are rich in minerals and dietary fibre, and make for a great breakfast cereal for weight reduction.
