i"ve seen people on here say oatmeal is not so good for you and that it stalls weight loss. i love it. but is the sugar free packets (ex:apples&cinn) bad for you or should i get steel cut or plain old fashioned in the can ?

Steel cut if you have to eat it at all.

I eat oatmeal almost every day. I have a huge bag of oats. I take 1/4 cup of oats, add1/2 cup of water, microwave for 1 min or so. I then add Splenda sweetener or fruit or whatever. Tastes good and filling. My bf uses 1/2 cup of oats and 1 cup of water.

I'm a big fan of proatmeal. Regular oatmeal with a scoop of your favorite protein powder flavor.

I have oatmeal a couple times a week. I've not heard too many bad things about it. Generally I cook it myself with cinnamon, rasins, dried cherries or fresh apples. Lately though I've gotten into cheating with Quaker instant high fiber cinnamon.

I eat it often. Old-fashioned or "quick" are better for you than pre-packaged packets (less sugar/chemicals).

SPLASH OF ORIGINAL SILK SOYMILK
1 SCOOP OF BODY FORTRESS VANILLA CREME

I have a bowl of sugar free oatmeal every morning (apples & cinnamon or maple & brown sugar). It's yummy and fills me up enough that I don't think about food for hours. That works for me.

I eat it almost every day ...today I tried "refrigerator oatmeal" wasn't a fan, but maybe because I used plain greek yogurt?

I have the good old fashioned oatmeal. I make it w Almond milk & a little bit of sugar & I love it. It has about 200cal. It's healthy, and it fills me up. Just make sure you dont buy the flavored one. Good luck!

It is good for you, helps keep you regular and clean out the gunk in your gut. It is super good for you!! I have read the book, "This is Why you are Fat and How to Stay Thin Forever," by Jackie Warner, a super health nut, and she recommends that you eat a cup a day along with 2 eggs. Both of the previous listed foods are loaded with nutrition!

I eat it just about every day. It does keep me full and satisfied. My son even loves it, hes 5, with cinnamon and honey:) I seen the proatmeal...that is something I am going to have to try. Sounds delicious:)

I have weight control maple & brown sugar oatmeal almost every day! I love it, it's low-cal, and keeps me full :)

I LOVE OATMEAL.

That is all.
May 22, 2012 3:55 PM
love oatmeal - slow burning carbs...keeps me full up to my mid morning snack of almonds :)
May 22, 2012 3:56 PM
Love steel cut made with water and almond milk, also use pb2 powder for flavoring and blueberries. Haven't had any issues with weight loss ;~)

Oatmeal is fine, just don't get the kinds loaded with sugar (a lot of the instant packets are) I get the large containers of plain oatmeal at Walmart for about 2 dollars and add my own apple and cinnamon, vanilla, etc

REAL OATMEAL IS NOT BAD FOR YOU. HOW CAN IT BE?

I WOULD BUY THE RAW, STEEL CUT OR OLD FASHIONED OR WHATEVER. AS LONG AS IT ISN'T THE KIND YOU BUY IN THE PACKETS. THOSE THINGS ARE PACKED WITH SUGAR.

JUST ADD SOME BROWN SUGAR OR HONEY OR FRUIT AND NUTS TO IT.

I LOVE IT WITH WALNUTS AND RAISINS.

WHY WOULD ANYONE SAY IT'S BAD FOR YOU?
