I posted the following to the Phase 1 board since I'm starting P2 next week but I guess should have checked this board first. I'll just copy & paste below. My question is does the added protein and fiber of this brand possibly offset the spike in GI of instant oatmeal like when you combine olive oil with a starch? Before I started SB, I started eating this with nonfat, sf yogurt in the morning around 7 and it kept me satisfied until my lunch at 11.
Okay, I remember reading in the book about instant oatmeal being off-limits because it's stripped of fiber and some other reason that I can't recall. The book was written before Quaker came out with their Weight Control oatmeal. Does anyone know if this is okay for Ph. 2 and 3? I was just wondering whether to throw out the rest of the box I bought before starting SB or if it will be okay to eat next week when I'm in Ph. 2. Here's the info from the box if that helps....
