Steel oats for abs of steel?!

Abs of Steel with Steel Cut Oats

 

If you enjoy a warm creamy bowl of instant oats for breakfast you may be missing out on getting those amazing abs of steel.  Here’s the skinny-- folks who dined on whole grains such as steel cut oats, lost more belly fat than dieters who ate refined grains, says a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.  Wondering why steel cut oats are so ab friendly?  Well, considering that half a cup steel cut oats has 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein whereas instant oatmeal has 3 grams fiber and 4 grams of protein.  More food for thought…..instant oatmeal has 15 ingredients including guar gum and caramel color while steel cuts oats has one ingredient (steel cut oats)!

 

Wanna try a delish belly busting breakfast?
