    Losing weight/fat with oats and quark

    First off: I am not a bodybuilder nor do I actively work out. I do some cardio every day because I drive about 15km on my bicycle every day but yea, not working out as in lifting.
    What I am here for is to ask whether what I plan to do is good for losing some weight. I figured that this would probably be a very good place for a question like this.
    I am overweight and need to lose 10-20kg to get back to normal BMI.

    What I want to try/started today is having breakfasts that consist of oats and quark. The quark being the one with the lowest fat (0,2g/100g).
    What I am not sure about is what amounts I should go for. After some research I assumed about 50g of oats and 250g of Quark would be good for someone who doesn't actively work out. Are these good amounts?

    Also, any other general advice on my plan maybe?

    It doesn't really matter what you have for one meal. What matters is total calories and macros over time - read the macro calculation sticky thread for the detail.

    By the way, if you don't do resistance training, a large part of what you lose will be muscle tissue - this is bad for several reasons. Your shape may not improve even if you shrink. Your metabolism may drop too, making rebound fat gain more likely.

    It's not a case of wanting to look like a bodybuilder. Even modest health and physique goals require resistance training... this is way more important for success than the details of particular meals...

    Damn, I thought I was the only person on this planet who ate Oat and Quark. It's my staple diet but I add a teaspoon of honey, frozen berries and pumpkin seeds and oil.

    Yes OP you will lose weight.
