Can You Lose Weight By Eating Only Cereal?

Adding Raisin Bran to your diet can help you lose your extra pounds through its high dose of overall fiber (31 percent of the  daily recommended value). The cereal doesn’t have a high percentage of overall lipid fat (only 1 percent of the daily recommended value).

Raisin Bran Nutritional Information

The USDA’s FoodData Central says, Raisin Bran cereal has 5 grams of protein, 9 gm of overall dietary fiber, about 30 mgs of calcium and 350 mgs of potassium. There are three main ingredients which include whole grains, raisins and wheat bran. The combo of whole grain wheat flakes along with raisins makes this cereal a good source of fiber.

According to a Nov. 2015 position statement from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics about the health affects of dietary fiber and released in the Journal of the Academy of Dietetics, fiber is associated with lowering body weight. Consuming this carb is good for weight loss due to high-fiber foods taking longer to digest, as they can boost satiety and make people feel fuller longer.

Fiber also helps you lose weight in other ways. The same statement reports that fiber can lessen the risk of chronic diseases, including heart disease, certain cancers and Type 2 diabetes. Most populations However, don’t consume an adequate amount. The right amount for fiber consumption is 14 gm of overall fiber per 1,000 calories. In the U.S., only 5 percent the population meets the right amount.

Although eating bran for breakfast may help in total reduction in weight, consuming high-calorie foods for the remainder of the day will not aid weight loss goals. You need to consume a mixture of whole grains, fresh fruits, lean proteins and vegetables during the day for a healthy, balanced diet for losing weight, as reported by the USDA.
