Why Oatmeal Is the Best Breakfast For Weight Loss

first_img Share Sharing is caring! Share If you’re looking to lose weight, it’s time to skip the cold cereal and start enjoying a comforting bowl of oatmeal in the morning.It’s backed by science: A small study found that those who ate oatmeal daily for six weeks had a greater decrease in cholesterol levels and waist size than those who ate the same amount of carbs in noodles over the same time period.It’s proof that you can have your carbs and eat them, too!It keeps you satisfied: There’s no need to reach for an unhealthy convenience snack in the morning when you’ve got oatmeal on your side; it offers the calories and fiber you need to stay satisfied all morning long. Unlike sugary breakfast cereals full of refined carbs, the body digests oatmeal at a slower pace, keeping blood sugar levels steady, energy up, and hunger away.It helps you time carbs right: When it comes to weight loss, celebrity trainers Bob Harper and Gunnar Peterson agree: you should eat carbs for breakfast. According to Manhattan-based nutritionist and registered dietitian Shira Lenchewski, “[carbs] are burned more efficiently in the morning than at night,” so they don’t go unused and get stored as fat in the body. Shira also recommends that the largest meal (higher in carbohydrates) be breakfast.It’s quick to come together: Rolled oats take well under 10 minutes from prep to bowl. It might be a little more time than that instant packet you’re used too, but these varieties don’t come with any added sugars often found in those flavored packets. Or there’s always the option to go with overnight oats that require just a little prep the night before and are ready to eat from the fridge the next morning.The possibilities are endless: This warming breakfast should never feel boring or blah. Liven up your oatmeal bowl with these healthy combinations that keep your meal feeling fresh, filling, and satisfying to your taste buds, too.MSNhealth.com Sharecenter_img 556 Views   no discussions Food & DiningHealthLifestyle Why Oatmeal Is the Best Breakfast For Weight Loss by: MSNhealth.com – March 16, 2015 Tweetlast_img read more

Jose Mourinho’s agent denies he has agreed to replace Louis van Gaal

first_img Mourinho, who was sacked by Chelsea last week, has been linked with the position at Old Trafford after United dropped out of the top four and crashed out of the Champions League at the group stage. But Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes, speaking to Globoesporte, insisted there had been no approach from United for his client’s services. “There is nothing,” Mendes said when asked about reports the former Chelsea manager had agreed to take over at Old Trafford. “We don’t know what will happen in the future, but now there is no agreement. There isn’t an official proposal either, that’s not true.” Mourinho is understood to be spending the week in Portugal with his family, but he is looking for a quick return to management and with Van Gaal’s United floundering, the 52-year-old could realise his dream of taking over at Old Trafford if the club’s board decides to dispense with the current manager. Some fans clearly want that to happen. Cries of Mourinho’s name could be heard around Old Trafford on Saturday when United slumped to a 2-1 defeat to Norwich. United were booed off the pitch following their third straight defeat, which left them in fifth position. Three weeks ago, senior United figures insisted Van Gaal had the board’s full support, but after a run of six matches without a win, they have now fallen quiet. It is understood the United board were disappointed in particular at Van Gaal’s failure to lead the team through what was viewed as a relatively easy Champions League group containing PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and Wolfbsurg. Jose Mourinho’s agent has denied a deal has been struck for his client to replace Louis van Gaal as Manchester United manager. Press Association And a second straight defeat in the league last weekend meant United will head into the busy Christmas schedule outside the top four. Although United could stomach another year out of the Champions League in a financial sense, the damage to the club’s standing in the game would be hit if they were not in Europe’s top club competition next season. And with Mourinho available and willing to take the job, there has been a flood of speculation linking the two-time Champions League winner with United. United will also be aware Pep Guardiola is available in the summer, although he is rumoured to be ready to move to Manchester City instead following his stint with Bayern Munich. On Wednesday, Van Gaal will take questions on his future for the first time since Mourinho was sacked. The Dutchman is due to conduct his weekly press conference at the AON Training Complex in Carrington at 3:30pm. United travel to Stoke on Boxing Day before hosting Chelsea on December 28. Speaking after the loss to Norwich, Van Gaal insisted he had the backing of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and his own players. ”Ed was very fast out of the dressing room but I feel that support, yes,” the 64-year-old said. ”The most important support is from the players because the players have to do it on the pitch and the chemistry between the players and the manager and his staff is very important.” last_img read more

Nations League: Netherlands Beat Germany 3-0

first_imgThey suffered a shock exit in the group phase of the 2018 tournament in Russia and this loss leaves them with only one point from their opening two Nations League matches.Since the end of their World Cup qualifying campaign in October 2017, Germany have only won one competitive match – a 2-1 World Cup win over Sweden – and gained two victories in friendlies – against Saudi Arabia and Peru.They face a tough task in their next match on Tuesday, as they visit world champions and Nations League Group A1 leaders France.After van Dijk’s opener, the Dutch had chances to double their lead but Georginio Wijnaldum shot wide and Depay headed off target.Manchester City forward Leroy Sane, on as a second half substitute, should have equalised but he dragged a shot just wide when unmarked eight yards out.That miss proved costly, as with Germany pushing for an equaliser, they gave the ball away and Promes set up Depay to score in the 86th minute.Depay then hit the crossbar, before Wijnaldum added another in the third minute of stoppage time.The Netherlands, managed by former Everton boss Ronald Koeman, are second in the three-nation group after beginning their campaign with a 2-1 defeat by France in September.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Liverpool pair Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum scored as the Netherlands won to send Germany to the bottom of Nations League Group A1.Van Dijk reacted first to head in from close range after Ryan Babel had headed against the crossbar following Memphis Depay’s right-wing corner. Depay added a second late on from a quick counter-attack after being set up by Quincy Promes.

Briana Day controls the paint in 73-56 NCAA tournament win against Army

first_imgBriana Day slid across the baseline and lifted her arm in the air. The 6-foot-4 Day towered over Army’s 5-foot-7 Destinee Morris. After leaving Morris’ hands, the ball had only been in the air for a split second before Day swatted it out of bounds and into the front row of seats.Even in Syracuse’s 73-56 win, Black Knights head coach Dave Magarity remembered the play distinctly.“I’m sure Destinee Morris will have nightmares of that block,” Magarity said.The No. 4 seed Orange (26-7, 13-3 Atlantic Coast) blew out No. 13 seed Army (29-3, 17-1 Patriot) on Friday afternoon in the Carrier Dome in the Round of 64 of the NCAA tournament, 73-56, and Day served once again as the defensive stalwart she’s been all year. While only recording three official blocks, she got her hands on several other shots, took two charges and had a game-high 12 rebounds.Six-foot-2 Aimee Oertner, Army’s tallest consistent contributor, picked up four fouls within the first three quarters. She only played 17 minutes in total, allowing Day to have her way inside.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We tell our kids to let it fly when they are open, you don’t want to be indecisive,” Magarity said. “But, you may want to incorporate a ball fake in there.”Army’s offense was flustered the entire game. It ranks first in the country in 3-point percentage at 41.6. It averages 70.7 points per game.On Friday, the Black Knights scored just four first-quarter points and 10 in the second.“We didn’t want to foul,” Day said. “Just playing clean basketball, that’s what we talked about.”Orange head coach Quentin Hillsman stressed to his team that when Army does get to the basket, either block the shot or take a charge. Day did both.While Day made her presence felt on the defensive end, she also did it on offense. Her game-high six offensive boards elongated possessions and played a part in SU’s 21 second-chance points. Only one other time this season, has Day recorded at least three blocks and six offensive rebounds.“At the end of the day, she was a tremendous anchor,” Hillsman said, “and got us extra possessions. She had a good game.”A little more than three minutes into the second quarter, Day helped trap Oertner near the sideline at halfcourt. Oertner went to pass the ball to a teammate in the middle, but Day lifted her arms up, engulfed the passing lane and knocked the ball down to herself. Day dribbled half the length of the court and laid in the finger roll. On Army’s next possession, Day stuffed the Black Knights’ Aliyah Murray underneath the basket.Syracuse will next take on Albany on Sunday in the Round of 32. Great Danes forward Shereesha Richards ranks sixth in the country in scoring. But Day’s performance against Army was another example in a season filled with them of the influence she can have.“I don’t know a lot about Albany but we’ve played good teams with good post players,” Day said. “I don’t think it’s going to be a challenge.”It certainly wasn’t one against Army.

Ayew, Ghana’s mister consistent

first_imgIn 2012, during the last confrontation between Ghana and Tunisia at AFCON, Andre Ayew won the game for the Black Stars by scoring the winning goal in the quarter-final against Carthage Eagles. Seven years later, the captain of Ghana wants to cross the Tunisian hurdle again. For Ayew, Ghana “is hungry for a trophy”.Having a father as a football legend is difficult for some players to take on. But among the Ayew family, direct descendants of Abedi Pelé, it is a key element.Unstoppable support for his boys, the former CAF Player of the Year has been able to transmit his passion. Andre, a copy of his father also followed his footsteps as a midfielder.When Andre talks about the golden generation that won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1982, along with Abedi Pelé and current coach James Kwesi Appiah, someone he admires. “These are different times but they have advised us to stay calm and to have no regrets “.The years when young Andre seemed frail are now behind him. Thanks to a rich experience of more than ten years, the Turkey-based player has made his way to the captaincy of the Black Stars.He joined the national team at a very young age. Starting first at the U-20 level, before his promotion to the first team in 2007, then under the captaincy of Stephen Appiah, now Team Manager of the current technical staff. In a few years, the young man has grown to become a man who makes a bold declaration at every tournament. As captain of the Black Stars, the 29-year-old works in the continuity of his predecessors. “We have to have to stay calm to hold this. Our country loves football so much that there is a lot of pressure on the players, the federation and the coach, but I think I have to keep doing my job, which is to lead the team also in my own way. I learnt a lot from seniors such as Stephen Appiah, John Mensah and Asamoah Gyan. I try to apply their leadership techniques to mine. “The atmosphere in the group is “perfect,” he says. With the younger ones, the integration was done in a natural way. Having the opportunity to evolve with your brother is a bonus for the older brother. Often together at the same club, (Olympique Marseille and Swansea City) or in Ghana Black Stars, the complementarity of the brothers could be observed over the matches.Andre knows that Ghana is “hungry for a trophy”. The next match against Tunisia will be tough. “I had the opportunity to play several AFCON editions; the group stages and the knockout phase are two different things, and that’s when you lose and you go home.”In 2012, the opportunist Andre was the hero of the Ghana – Tunisia quarter-final clash. During the extra time, as the two teams struggled to break the tie, the midfielder took advantage of goalkeeper Aymen Mathlouthi’s blunder to score Ghana’s winning goal. Can the Ghanaian captain pull his team again to victory? The answer this Monday, July 8th.last_img read more

Odell Beckham Jr. speaks as if trade from Giants to Browns was his choice

first_imgConsidering the perceived trajectories of the Giants and Browns, there is no reason to dismiss Odell Beckham Jr. when the 26-year-old wide receiver suggests that, football-wise, he is in a better situation in Cleveland for 2019 than he would have been in New York.But while Beckham talks up his new team this summer, the NFL’s annual, league-wide period of unapologetic optimism, the awkward reality is that the superstar wideout did not choose to play for the Browns. He was traded. Of course, we all know how this works in the NFL: If the Browns win in 2019, any potential Beckham-related issues will be buried by the elation of success. And to Beckham’s point, Cleveland has a chance to compete for a playoff berth. New York, it seems, does not.But don’t let Beckham’s words mince the truth about his relocation to Cleveland. He was traded to the Browns; he did not sign with them in free agency.Because if things go poorly in Cleveland this season, chances are we’ll all be reminded. MORE: Browns-Steelers suddenly among the NFL’s best rivalriesIn a recent, wide-ranging interview with Complex UK, Beckham was asked about his “biggest career move to date.” His answer was just as conveniently void of the word “trade.””I just felt with the Giants I was just stuck at a place that wasn’t working for me anymore,” Beckham said. “I felt like I wasn’t going to be able to reach my full potential there; mentally, physically, spiritually, everything I felt capable of doing, I just couldn’t see it happening there. So I think allowing me to be in an environment where I can be myself and give it a different approach, I feel like my football will benefit.”I’m just excited about being able to play football again and not have to deal with all the other stuff and politics that came with my previous role.”Understandable? Certainly. Disingenuous? A little.This isn’t the first time — and it certainly won’t be the last — that Beckham has expressed his excitement about playing in Cleveland. He said he felt “like a little kid” during minicamp. He also recently told GQ about his unhappiness in New York.But Beckham did not ask to be traded by the Giants. And despite trade rumors that surfaced prior to the deal, New York general manager Dave Gettleman had said he wouldn’t move the wide receiver.”(Gettleman) said he wasn’t going to trade (Beckham), then he traded him,” Landon Collins — who also was traded away from New York this year — recently said of the Giants GM. “We (were) all surprised because that’s one of the best receivers in the game and for him to do that and lie to everybody, it’s not a good look for players and teammates.”To be fair, even though the Giants gave Beckham a massive contract extension late last summer, the 2019 season was rocky enough to have ruined any good feelings. The receiver was fined for his comments about quarterback Eli Manning’s play. He headbutted an AC unit on the Giants’ sideline during a blowout loss to the Eagles. He faced criticism from team owner John Mara. He was blamed for a failed onside kick recovery. He missed the last four games of the season with a quad injury.Yet even with that as the background, after the deal that sent Beckham to Cleveland, Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield had to respond to speculation that the wide receiver was unhappy with the trade. Sporting News contributor and former NFL team exec Jeff Diamond pointed to Beckham’s absence from the Browns’ voluntary OTAs as a sign he might not be as excited as he claims.MORE: Ranking the NFL’s top wide receivers for 2019last_img read more
