Will oats help reduce my weight?

Hi! I am in the process of reducing my weight, so can I add oats in my diet?

Oats are a nutritious food you can enjoy of a morning, or even during the day. Because it contains complex carbohydrates, fibre & protein, it will keep you full for longer periods of time, as it’s slower for your body to digest. The fibre is called beta-glucan, which when dissolved in water, provides a thick, gel like solution in the gut. This is how the process of fullness takes place, as well as increasing the good bacteria in your gut.
In terms of weight loss, yes, it can be an aid under the correct plan. For example, when you are also eating a very clean diet, watching your portion sizes and more importantly, not adding things like high fructose sweetened syrups to it. This will obviously kill any benefits that oats may have in helping you lose weight. Over consumption as with anything, can impair your fat loss results.
