View Full Version : Oatmeal?

I heard that oatmeal is good to have for breakfast if you wanna lose weight. I was wondering what are some of the good kinds to get in a grocery store (Shop Rite, A&P, etc.) and not a health food store? Also i heard some people like to put some protein mix into there oatmeal so i was wondering if anyone knew of any kinds that go good with 100% Whey Rich Chocolate? Thank You

the oatmeal isn't going to make you lose weight, but its better than processed foods, and inexpensive, thats why people eat it.
just get whatever is cheap. Personally I use the generic old fashioned oats in the biggest cardboard container they have.

Oats are low glycemic carbs. They fill you up and burn off slower giving you energy for longer. Gives you that satiated feeling. Stay away from the prepackaged, instant oats that are loaded with sugar. Other than that, Oats are Oats.

I prefer a bowl of Whole Grain Total Cereal with Nonfat/lowfat milk or scrambled eggs (3 whites, 1 yolk/4 whites, 2 yolk) in the morning.

Sometimes I have both. The eggs have great protein to start off the day and the Total Ceral has a lot of vitamins and minerals, too.

I love oatmeal. I reat 1 cup of oatmeal every morning religiously. I put a 1/2 Tbsp of honey and and spalash of milk in it then pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes. ****s awesome. Don't even have to cook it.

Other than that, Oats are Oats.

Really? I've read that steel cut oats are better for you than rolled oats. I've never seen any real proof of it though. I eat both, since they taste different.

<shrug> Beats me.

I'll try to dig up the post with the claim that steel rolled are nutritionally superior.

Here's one post that talks about the different types of oats:


Sounds to me like it's more of a difference in taste than anything else, so I guess "Oats are oats" is true - except when talking about Instant...
