    Instant Oatmeal


    Does anyone know anything about eating instant Quaker flavored oatmeal? I eat the low sugar one. It has a lot of sodium and I am trying to lower my sodium intake. How does it compare to the regular oatmeal? Any thoughts?

    I do know Quaker Oats makes a "weight loss" formula in 3 flavors, banana nut bread, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Each serving contains 27g of carbs and only 1g of sugar, as well as 0 fat, and it tastes great. Unflavored tastes like grass to me.

    This is a staple for me. It's basically the main source for my PWO carbs. It also has one of the highest protein contents for readily available oatmeal and it's easy to toss into my magic bullet with a couple scoops of protein powder.

    If you're in this forum, it is best to avoid the instant oatmeals. Even if they are of the low sugar variety, they impact blood sugar adversly. Go with Old Fashioned (good) or steel cut (best).

    lol.....

    OH NO! Instant oaaaaats.

    It really is not that big of a deal. Seriously.

    Maybe if you are eating JUST that(and even then, it is likely negligible in the variety you are refering to), but as part of a meal, don't even worry about it.

    That banana bread "weight control" is ****ing delicious.

    Two VERY good examples of dialing in and not dialing in your diet. I can see my abs....distinctly. I jest, of course.

    I get the Old Fashioned Quaker Oats. They contain 0 sodium. I just add a little cold water and 1/4 or 1/2 a cup of oats. Good stuff.

    You better at least throw up a pic now CHAMP..lol

    My diet is VERY dialed in. I just don't stress about such trivial **** as that.

    Do you not comprehend that as part of a whole meal GI is a ****ing useless tool, and the difference in BS is going to be negligible at best in the context we are talking about here.

    If you enjoy your steel cut oats, by all means EAT THEM, that isn't my point. My point is there is no need to get all worked up over instant oats such as "weight control" oatmeal vs "steel cut" oats when the difference is going to be so damn trivial it isn't even funny. Eat what you enjoy.

    It is 2011 not 1975, get with the program.

    Post your pic, or move on. If you are going to make some arrogant comment that some how would mean your diet is so dialed in and your knowledge is superior, based on your sickly detailed abs, while also making the assumption/suggestion i'm some fatty, at least back it up.

    I guess Layne Norton or anyone else that would agree with what I am saying is far inferior to your vast knowledge of oat digestion right?

    I have nothing to prove to you. My input was for the benefit of the OP. I am in single digit BF percentile and I train competitive athletes and have for a long time. This is a place for sharing, I have done so. If it was at your expense, that is how you are free to take it. Again, I don't give a rat's backside what else you have to say. I am not here to swell my E-ego, just to help. I suggest you do so likewise.

    Exactly what I thought...

    Read your post again. If you want to help the OP then post your opinion, don't act like Mr BiG ****, and then when called out on it back peddle.

    You came across like a giant douche, rather then just stating your opinion in a helpful manner, you act like you are the second coming of Ronnie.lol

    You appear to be the only one with an e-ego Mr distinctive abs.lol

    Why are people raging over oatmeal, seriously lol XD. If you eat plain oats and it works for you, thumbs up. You choose the instant kind (weight control per say) and it works for you, thumbs up. I eat both, but banana nut bread flavored instant Quaker oats tastes fkn great!

    Because in the context of what we are taking about it makes no damn difference, and I can't make that clearer.lol

    You seem to be the only one who thinks other wise lol.

    Layne Norton:
    No, there is no reason one can't have white rice, white bread, or the like when trying to lose fat. Most people are so concerned about the glycemic index of these foods that they don't realize the glycemic index is only measured when a carb source is eaten by itself. If you combine the carb source with a protein, fat, and fiber found in a complete meal, the glycemic index is essentially blunted and washed out by the other foods.
    Let me guess he too pales in comparison to your vast knowledge, and god like physique.

    We are debating rolled oats:
    Calories:150
    Fat:3
    Carb:27
    Fiber:4
    Sugar:1
    Pro:5

    Vs

    Quaker Weight control:
    Calories:160
    Fat:3
    Carb:29
    Fiber:6
    Sugar:1
    Pro:7


    So if one consumes 30g of carbs from either, as part of a meal to hit xx macro/calorie target, you are saying there will be a difference worth worrying about CORRECT?

    RIGGGGGGHT! lol

    PS I find it funny you have yet to post a reply with a shred of actual info. Every post is a smart ass one liner or about how awesome you are.

    I would suggest the steal cut or old fashioned as well. They have no sodium and would be better for you. You can add cinnamon, slivered almonds, peanut butter, banana, or a number of other things to help the flavor.
