Used to eat my instant oatmeal religiously every day until it made me fat. I'd always have to eat 2 bowls; throw in some wheat toast and a banana for fiber; and a dose of "healthy" orange juice. It skyrocketed my blood sugar; and I became type 2 diabetic in spite of the fact that I rode a mountainbike daily. Now I eat my eggs; and bacon for breakfast; minus the toast; add bell peppers spinach or onions for fiber; never get hungry; and have shed 50 lbs; and bike more energetically than ever. Why take in a carbohydrate; even if its low glycemic; only raising blood sugar "slowly". Why raise blood sugar at ALL????? And if my LDL is harmless fluffy pattern A; who cares if its excreted? Paleo man didn't have heart disease; and he never ate a morning bowl of oatmeal.
