Steel oats for abs of steel?!

Abs of Steel with Steel Cut Oats


If you enjoy a warm creamy bowl of instant oats for breakfast you may be missing out on getting those amazing abs of steel.  Here’s the skinny-- folks who dined on whole grains such as steel cut oats, lost more belly fat than dieters who ate refined grains, says a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.  Wondering why steel cut oats are so ab friendly?  Well, considering that half a cup steel cut oats has 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein whereas instant oatmeal has 3 grams fiber and 4 grams of protein.  More food for thought…..instant oatmeal has 15 ingredients including guar gum and caramel color while steel cuts oats has one ingredient (steel cut oats)!

From my various resources quick oats or old fashion rolled oats is nutritionally the same as the steal cut oats, cooks quicker, and is less expensive.

The instant oatmeal in packets should not be compared with steal cut oats because of all the other stuff added to it.

My morning breakfast is often 1/2 cup old fashion oats microwaved with 1 cup water, topped with yogurt, fruit and nuts.  This is much better than any instant thing you can find and is prepared in about the same amount of time as instant.

I was in a head on collision and as a result I gained 100 lbs because I was off my feet off and on for a few years during surgery recoop. on my legs and feet. If not for God I would not be alive today as well as not be able to walk. However I still need to lose 50 more lbs and it does not seem to come off. I also lost a son a few years after my head on collision and I get depressed off and on of missing Mark so much! I know he is in heaven because he was a believer.. I also had a near death experience from the head on collision and saw a glimpse of heaven. please pray for me. thanks Darlene

I do't eat  instant, it is gross to me, because I like my oats firm and not watery, unlike my grandma, who eats hers like soup! anyway, I get a big bag of Quaker ots from Costco, and eat that!
