Does oatmeal as a pre workout meal help with weight los


I read in a magazine that eating oatmeal 20 minutes before working out will boost the metabolism and cause the body to burn even more fat, resulting in more weight loss. Is this true?

I have never heard of such a thing. I mean, it is a healthy thing to eat regardless but I don't know about it making a difference for your workout in terms of losing fat. Did they source a study?

Based on my findings, oatmeal generally helps with weight loss because it is high in fiber and fills you up, keeping you full longer so I would say it can help but I am not sure if it will impact your workout that much.

Oatmeal is great for energy and filling you up. So I think eating it before a workout is a great idea. I am not sure if there is any direct result of it causing more weight loss but it could be possible for some people.

I think it can but this greatly depends on your body. Some people react to different foods in a positive or negative way. For someone who can't digest oats properly, it can lead to weight gain from inflammation.

A lot of these fad rumors dealing with food are a measure to make more sales. I know it sounds silly but this was likely a sponsored attempt to increase oatmeal sales. Oatmeal is healthy and all but there is no proof of this anywhere.
