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

Mayor Coffey Won’t Run For Second Term in Oceanport

first_img“When I first came in, we were going to get agendas out (to the public), televise meetings and treat people with more respect. And that happened for a while. Then, as the composition of the council changed, thingsstarted to become morepartisan and a lot moreuncivil, both online and inperson. It’s not working forme, and I don’t want to bepart of it anymore,” he said. Though he is pleased with some of the things the borough has accomplished under his watch, including televising municipal meetings, forming a stronger relationship with the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) and facilitating the sale of the old borough hall while identifying the site of a new municipal complex, not to mention in recent months Coffey said he was dissuaded from seeking a second term due to limited powers and contrasting viewpoints. Coffey said, though he’ll be relinquishing his mayoral title, he’s not planning to go very far. OCEANPORT – Howmuch of an impact does themayor really have in theborough’s current form ofgovernment? “The focus will be maintaining a stable tax rate and reducing wasteful spending, while continuing to invest funds in infrastructure, roads and parks. We’ll all be focused on the development of the new borough hall complex and fighting the overdevelopment proposed at Fort Monmouth,” Proto added. Coffey points to the development of Fort Monmouth as a subject about which he and the council fail to see eye-to-eye, and a conversation he has not been able to make much headway on. “Every meeting I’ve been part of, for the most part, they have been conducted with great civility and respect between the council and residents. But depending on the topic, the discussion may get heated,” Proto said. “Sometimes there are residents who are passionate about a subject and conduct themselves in a disrespectful way to the council. And those residents will be responded to. Respect is a two-way street, but at the end of the day, we’re all working toward the same goals.” Coffey, who works full time as corporation counsel for the city of Bayonne, also said he is not comfortable with the manner in which council business is sometimes conducted at public meetings and on social media platforms. Under the borough form of government, the mayor does not have a vote in municipal matters, but does have the power to decide split votes, as well as the authority to veto a council decision. “They want the fort area to look like Oceanport. But you’re talking about sticking 720 homes, four liquor licenses and 100,000 square feet of commercial space into 430 acres. By definition it will look different. I think it’s OK that it’ll look different in 10 years. They don’t,” Coffey said. “I can’t help but be involved and maybe I’ll be more effective by questioning A, B, C and D from the audience than I am right now,” he said. “I’m the guy who volunteers to run basketball. It’s what brings me joy. This whole town runs on volunteers to an absurd level. If the council and mayor disappeared tomorrow, people would be less cognizant than if all the volunteers in this town stepped aside on a random Tuesday.” Coffey took office in 2016 after defeating two-term Oceanport Mayor Michael Mahon as a write-in Democratic candidate, a victory he sealed after just 60 days of campaigning before the November election. It was a question posed and answered by Mayor Jay Coffey in a recent interview, in which he said, “After four years, I think I’d have a larger and more positive impact on the lives of residents by overseeing our recreational basketball league than I would in another term.” With the mayoral seat open in Oceanport, a current member of the all-Republican council, Robert Proto, has announced his candidacy for the position, and feels a sitting mayor is not nearly as inconsequential as Coffey suggests. “Our form of government is one of a strong council and a weak mayor. I’m aware of it just as Jay was aware of it, just as previous mayors were aware of what they were signing up for,” Proto said. “You can certainly go in with your own agenda and vision, but you need to communicate with council members and your committees in order to accomplish your goals. If you’re not willing to be flexible and compromise, you’ll have a difficult time.” Proto, who is runningunopposed in the Juneprimary election, said thecouncil has made greatstrides in communicatingwith residents over the pastfew years, but recognizedthat sometimes emotionsand passions can take overon both sides of the dais. As for his future initiatives, should he win the seat in November, Proto said he “won’t try to recreate the wheel.” last_img read more
