And by you, I mean myself.
I like that eat every two hours if possible. I try to eat around the same time everyday.
Unfortunately like most people, I have to work. So I eat oatmeal on my breaks. Two packs of maple oatmeal at 9:35 and two more at 2:25.
I know that the flavored oatmeal isn't as good for you as better quality oatmeal.
"Flavored Oatmeal â?? Go to your pantry right now and get out your oatmeal. If you took out a colorful box full of little kiddy packets of peaches â??n cream oatmeal, do yourself a favor and kick that shit to the curb! As stated above, we think oatmeal is one the best carb sources for bodybuilders, but the flavored, prepackaged variety sucks.
Look at the ingredients, which are listed in order of quantity. Sugar is usually the second ingredient in these girly oatmeal packets. Then you have other crap like salt, hydrogenated vegetable oils, maltodextrin, and partially hydrogenated soybean oil.
To top it off, the oats used in flavored oatmeal are usually more finely ground than healthy, old fashioned oatmeal. This means the GI could be higher based on the extra processing. The list of ugly ingredients goes on and varies a little with flavoring, but the lesson is simple: donâ??t eat this stuff"
That's from a tnation article "Foods That Make You Look Good Nekid"
I love oatmeal and I am getting rid of the bad oatmeal.
You should do the same.
I guess the point of the thread is to inform and also, How big of a difference is packaged oatmeal from the "100% natural rolled oats" Has anyone seen any big differences from one from the other?
