The most important ingredient in porridge are clearly oat flakes. The complex carbohydrates in oats mean that you will stay full for a long time and will not suffer from cravings. Porridge is therefore the ideal food for losing weight. If you prepare your porridge with water instead of milk or a vegetable drink, you can also save calories.
However, the porridge has to be prepared correctly for this. For example, you should not add sugar to the porridge, not eat too much at once or use the wrong toppings.
