If you’d like to feel fuller, longer after you drink a smoothie – just add some oat bran to the mix… about 1/3 of a cup.
When volunteers drank smoothies, they felt significantly more satiated when it contained beta-glucan – a fiber found in oat bran… That’s compared to people who drank plain juice. Research says it’s because the fiber absorbs water, and slows digestion… And the slower we digest, the longer it takes to feel hungry again.
