    I personally like steel cut oats from my local health food store. I like them better than rolled oats.

    Oats is oats. They have no added sugar. That is unless of course you buy instant flavored crap.

    Quaker Oats (rolled oats)
    1/2 cup serving (dry)
    27g carbs
    4g fiber
    -2g soluable
    -2g insoluable
    1g sugars

    If you want to save some money, head to Costco or Sam's Club and buy the 9 pound box of Quaker oats. If I'm not mistaken the box is around 10 bucks or so.

    Make sure you buy the old fashioned type, not the 1 minute instant. They have a lower GI and thus give you less of an insulin spike.
    They may not taste as good, but better for slow release.

    B5150-
    A strong example of how one's careful research (reading the side of the container) can yield tremendous amounts of valuable information!!!

    Taste is okay by itself. I just mix in a pack of splenda and it tastes much better.

    I believe most serving sizes for oats are 1/2 cup dry.

    I know for rolled oats it is 1/2 cup dry, but steel cup is 1/4 cup dry. I googled it and found this.

    http://www.organicharvest.com/pdf/oat_bran_medium.pdf

    It says a 1/3 cup is 130 kcals....ummmmm

    Quaker makes a new Weight Control Oatmeal. It is flavored, and has about 7g fiber. Good stuff.

    My post above doesnt seem to make too much sense.

    rolled oats @ 1/2 cup dry = 140-150kcals

    steelcut @ 1/4 cup dry = 150 kcals

    organic oat bran (website I listed above) @ 1/3 cup dry= 130 kcals

    There...that is a little easier to understand..!
