Before discovering the wonderful world of jazzed-up overnight oats, I wouldn't touch a bowl of oatmeal with a 10-foot pole. I didn't understand how a breakfast food with the personality of a piece of cardboard could be so popular (trust me, I tried). But after coming across the weight-loss benefits of oats during a recent Google search for the best fast-burning breakfasts, I decided to give it another shot. Food bloggers had given the grain I considered boring the sexy upgrade it needed by adding fruits, nuts, chocolate, and more. Needless to say, I ended up buying a bag of oats and haven't looked back since.

See what makes this the infinitely customizable, fat-burning breakfast the sexy meal you won't want to skip:
