Ok cool, I was just worried about it b/c I heard quick oats have somewhat a higher GI then regular but OH WELL im not going to let it go to waste lol

This is true, but don't worry about it. The GI isn't that much higher. :)

old fashioned oats taste better imo, and dont really take much longer to cook using the microwave.

Another option would be to buy some granola. Low GI, and it's still a complex carb.

Granola's usually full of fat and sucrose.

The only difference is the way the oats are cut. If we are talking out the same brand.

yea that's why their great for bulking and I believe that if you eat anything in moderation it won't make you "fat". Now if you go eating like 10 cups of oats thats just a little to much. I eat about 1 to 1 1/2 cup of oats daily.

Any food can make you fat

yea if you eat enough of it. That's why I said if you eat in moderation you can eat anything without getting fat. I just sometimes can't do that. Put a full carton of ice cream in front of me and its gone=)

Actually YungLifter I was agreeing with you and responding to this question:
