THE DIET

Oat bran

Oat Bran1

P. Dukan recommend us to eat daily during the diet the oat bran. But what are this?

Oat bran is the outer husk of the oat grain. There are three main parts to cereal grains: the bran, germ, and endosperm. What means this?

The bran is designed to protect the grain until it can sprout, providing fiber and nutrition to the growing plant until it can support itself. The germ is a small, nutrient rich area which is often extracted along with the bran, the fiber-rich outer husk of the grain. The endosperm is the part of the grain used to make things like white flour, and it is the largest part of the grain.

This will gently improve your digestion. When the oat bran comes into contact with water, they swells up and occupies twenty to thirty times its volume in the stomach, creating a feeling of saturation.  Another property of the oat bran is the intestinal caloric loss. The presence of oat bran in the intestinal bolus leads to modest calorie loss but can be repeated over the very long term.

So, don`t forget to eat oat bran daily:

-          1 ½ tablespoon each Attack day;

-          2 tablespoon each Cruise and Consolidation day;

-          3 tablespoon in Stabilization Phase.

Remember not to exceed this recommendations  because a higher quantity of oat bran eaten daily may induce the stagnation into your diet!
