6. Helps Lose Weight
This benefit is somewhat related to the point above, as feeling full means you may even skip the midday meal. Skipping unnecessary meals obviously means less food entering your body. If you continue to do the same physical work that you were before, you automatically start losing unhealthy weight.
There is an actual book written on this topic called “The Benjamin Franklin Diet.” This book claims that eating oatmeal for breakfast and walking for just 25 minutes would allow a person to lose considerable weight WITHOUT changing his other any part of his/her other diet. This claim sounds too good to be true but has been proven over time.
