I can eat oatmeal!!!

Recommended Posts

I've tested for a couple of days now and I think if I manage the portion, use nuts, cinnamon and sugar free syrup and a strawberry or two in the oatmeal it works. I only got a 115-120 both days after eating the oatmeal - small portion though - I weighed it - was under 3 oz. I had a piece of cheese with it and a coffee and was good til lunch. I am not going to do it daily but it is an option and I love oatmeal. It's not low carb I guess.. maybe I should post this elsewhere.. but anyway, it could be part of an overall low'er' carb diet right?

Low-carb is not no-carb.

 

Multiple objectives: low BG, normal weight, low Triglycerides. If you achieve them all, go for it.

 

Oatmeal is much more preferrable to me than any wheat-based cereal.

 

***In my humble opinion

I have never been a fan of oatmeal. I did not like it when I was on a LF diet, and I don't miss it today.

 

Oatmeal is still full of grains, and grains are inflammatory, so I am happy to keep it out of me diet (regardless of how it impacts my BG). YMMV!

Yep amazes me that I see people who try and eat like pigs on here and then can't figure the lack of control.

I posted about oatbran and flaxseed and replies were wolfing down a cup of the stuff cause that was serving nutrient on label.

I love the internet. I still do oatbran it hasn't killed me....

It's good to know that you can have that option if you feel like having oatmeal. I eat oatmeal once in a while and up to a certain amount, my blood sugar is not unhappy.

If oatmeal doesn't spike you continue to eat it. There is no one diet that everyone has to follow. I like hot cereal but I mix oat fiber, flaxseed and chia seed with some coconut milk and coconut oil. That is what works for me.

I sometimes have oatmeal, though not a lot.Its a great change from egg, cheese or meat for breakfast. I kind of think of it as dessert.

Try unsweetened oatmeal with cheese melted into it. That is also a great alternative. I won't have it every day either but I do like to alternate breakfasts so I am delighted this is an option. Truly a small portion but it works.

I love oatmeal and have not tried that in a long time. The problem for me is the serving size. It would not be enough to fill me but perhaps having some protein with it might be a good option. I am glad to know that oatmeal might come back into my breakfast options once in a while.

I'm trying out steel cut oatmeal, 3/4 cup, myself in the morning with 1/4 cup of blueberries. I'm a newly diagnosed Type II, and am trying different things for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love oatmeal, and it also helps to bring my cholesterol down.
