9 reasons Oatmeal is the best breakfast ever.

- You will shed those extra pounds. Oatmeal could help you eat less later during the day and control weight says the research published in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism because you won't get as hungry as fast later.

- Oats are loaded in dietary fiber. Fiber is responsible for lowering your cholesterol levels, stabilizing your blood sugar as well as keeping you feeling full longer. A serving of oatmeal each morning also helps promote regular bowel movements and prevents constipation.

- Oatmeal is a power packed food consisting mainly of complex carbohydrates. It also provides around 5 grams of protein.

- The high fiber and complex carbohydrates slow down the conversion of this whole food to simple sugars. The high levels of magnesium nourish the body's proper use of glucose and insulin secretion.

- Oatmeal keeps you full for longer. According to the "Journal of Clinical Nutrition", "when compared to breakfast foods such as donuts, croissants, eggs, high-bran cereals and whole-grain bread, oatmeal had the highest satiety index, twice as high as white bread and 25 percent higher than eggs and high-brain cereals.

- Oatmeal, like many whole grains, contains plant lignans, which are converted by intestinal flora into mammalian lignans. One lignan, called enterolactone, is thought to protect against breast and other hormone-dependent cancers as well as heart disease.

- A Harvard study on 21,000 participants over 19 years showed that found that men who enjoyed a daily morning bowl of whole grain cereal had a 29 percent lower risk of heart failure.

- Oatmeal contains a special type of antioxidant called avenanthramide, that is known to fight off free radicals that attack high-density lipoproteins, or HDL, which is known as the good cholesterol. They also protect LDL cholesterol from oxidizing from copper, which reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

- It tastes good! Whether with milk or with fruits (some even put an egg in it), oatmeal is just too delicious.
