Is porridge good for weight loss?

It is no secret that oatmeal is healthy and rich in many vitamins, nutrients and protein. Porridge is a porridge made from oatmeal and milk or water. Due to the complex carbohydrates it contains, oatmeal gives a longer feeling of satiety and there is no feeling of hunger until noon. Whether porridge is good for weight loss depends on how you cook it and depending on the toppings, the calories can vary from 200 to 600. Especially peanut butter, honey, nuts and seeds can make your breakfast a real calorie bomb. So use the toppings sparingly and weigh everything up with a kitchen scale. The ready-made porridge mixes from the supermarket are usually full of sugar and calories and you should avoid them.
