    Question Why is Instant Oatmeal bad for you?

    i have read that instant oatmeal is bad for you.
    why is that?

    i eat master-choice instant oatmeal with no flavoring.
    are cereals any better than oatmeal?

    As a whole, the instant oats are just cut smaller cut oats for faster cooking time. The reason why instant oats are usually thought to be "unhealthy" is because when people think instant oats, they assume those that come in the flavored packets. Which are filled with uncessary sugars and additives for flavorings/preservation. The quick oats with no added sugars, and regular oats (old fashioned oats) are essentialy the same thing, just different particle size.
    Unaffiliated.

    Yeah, plain instant oats definitely aren't BAD for you, but if you're eating them alone (which you shouldn't do, btw), they supposedly would coax a higher response from insulin than old fashioned or steel cut oats.

    Well there are always exceptions, but the general rule is that eating protein and fat with carbs will lower the meal's glycemic index, since the fats/protein will help slow the rate which your body digests the carbs at. So if you were to eat instant plain oatmeal with a side of fat/protein, the GI wouldn't really matter in the end. Especially if your next meal is in a few hours.

    WHy exaclty are flavored oats bad?

    The ones with added sugar, like chocolate chip and apple?

    Is it just because they are loaded with sugar?
    -Some people say good things come to those who wait, truth is, good things come to those who work..... who work later.....who work harder...... who are willing to go further than anyone else to get them. If you're waiting for good things to come to you, you'll be waiting for a pretty long time.
