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.
I just eat regular old fashioned oats....instant might digest faster than old fashioned but i'm not 100%
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).
Instant= teh suck. Go the old fashioned route, better for u and an insanely better price/serving ratio

Steel cut are the best, whole different taste and t
Texture, only downside is they take long to cook, but worth it if you have the tine in the morning
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.
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.
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?
Instant oats every morning!!!
Add a banana, pb, cinnamon and some ground flax and it's going down!!! Oh yeah and don't forget the honey!!!Originally Posted by 0071982WC
