Newbie, looking to transform my body. need to know --- I keep hearing eat your oatmeal, its good for you! But I cringe at the taste of oatmeal.
I'm making lots of changes and I dont want to commit myself to something I cant do and get discouraged so I'm looking for alternative ways to get that powerful fiber punch in the morning.

Is Cream Of Wheat as good for you as OATMEAL?

If you like cream of wheat, go ahead and eat it. Just make sure you also get some protein and fats in that meal as well!31-26-36.

It doesn't have as much fiber. But if you like Cream of Wheat, try some of the hot cereals by Bob's Red Mill (www.bobsredmill.com). We find them in the organic section normally. They have anywhere from a 5 grain up to a 10 grain hot cereal mix, and the consistency is similar to Cream of Wheat, but it has a ton more fiber and nutrients in it. It's a nice change of pace from oatmeal all the time.
(Sorry bout the photo and info on this post. I just registered and am not quite up on all the computer stuff I need to do to get this going!)

one trick with oatmeal is to keep trying different methods of preparation or additions until you find the one you love.
for me, personally, it's either a chopped up apple or a handful of walnuts+sweetener. maple syrup, milk, berries, even peanut butter? yuck, not for me.
so you might want to consider that before writing off oats completely
