Hey would Quaker oatmeal still be a good source of oats or is it totally different than say 2 cups of plain oats

Those little flavour packets you mean?, quaker sell normal oats as well. At least where I live they do.

yeah buy the Weight Control one they sell, the bananabread one is so good! 7 grams of protien per packet so like 14 grams not bad at all!

They're not that bad, I myself eat the plain one and mix in some raisins in it in the morning, but if your using the packets, having a couple early in the day (breakfast) with a bit of the sugars in it is probably not going to be a huge deal.

I saw ronnie coleman eat the flavour packet ones.

Just do what I do, plain Quaker Oats, boil some hot water, use some Splenda, mix.

I found the Quaker Instant Oats tasted like junk and the Quaker Quick Oats were tasty. I have no idea what the difference is, but man the instant ones were terrible.

I eat the packet oats. I don't have much of a taste for oatmeal so I mix in some splenda and just wolf it down quickly. Tomorrow I'm gonna mix some whey in with it.

If your just going to down the thing you may as well buy the least processed, healtiest, least sugar added brand you can get.

I eat my Oatmeal from the same company that makes the 30g protein bars.

The quick oats (ones in the packets) usually contain a lot of sugar and digest much faster than the Quaker rolled oats. This will cause more of an insulin spike which we all know is bad unless post workout. So I usually try to stick to the rolled oats and I add a lil ground cinnamon so they dont taste like cardboard.
