Oatmeal is a great way to start the day. One half cup contains 4.6 grams of resistant starch, a fibrous carbohydrate that is needed to burn fat and boost energy. One half cup of oatmeal also contains 150 calories. When paired with hot water, it makes for a filling yet low calorie meal that is enough to tide you over until lunch or your mid-morning snack.
