    Alright, so here is a good match up.

    According to the "Diets (The Second Course)" thread, cold cereals are viewed as breakfast candy and oats are beloved.

    Oats are oats but there are many cold cereals out there.

    What is the best cold cereal out there?

    Currently I am eating:

    Special K: serving size = 1 1/4 cup. 110 cal. 5 g protein. 22 g carbs. 0 g fat.
    Vector: serving size = 1 1/4 cup. 215 cal. 5.5 g protein. 44 g carbs. 2.8 g fat.

    This is in comparison to:

    Instant-Oatmeal Packets Quaker Regular Oatmeal "With 100% Whole Grain Quaker Oats" "No Sugar Added"

    Serving = 1 pouch (32 g) . 120 cal. 4 g protein. 21 g carbs. 2 g fat.

    So which one is better?

    I"m not sure which one is better.

    Isn't the cold cereal more simple carbs and the oatmeal complex carbs???? :dunno:

    Not sure about this, but my best guess is that Oatmeal give you a steady insulin release for a longer period of time (making you feel fuller, longer). As for the Vector cereal and such, mostly sugar, which we all know gives you a large insulin spike (not keeping you full for long). Please, someone correct me if i'm wrong...

    Gutrat, that's pretty much it. Plus oatmeal has more fiber than most cereals = feel full longer.

    More fiber. Plus you can use water + oatmeal instead of milk + cereal

    Special K is shit and doesnt give you anything. If you have to eat a cereal go with one really high in fibre like Raison Bran. Oatmeal is the best to eat though.

    Another good one is Grape Nuts. But oatmeal > cereal. Oats are one of the purest forms of fiber/carbs, so eat up.

    You shouldn't use the oatmeal in packets..that's about as bad as breakfast cereal. Regular, plain minute oats or even regular, plain quick oats would be infinitely better. I put cinnamon and a packet of splenda in mine to make it taste better.

    EDIT: unless, of course, you do have the packets of true plain oatmeal, no sugar, no nothin added; in which case it's a convenience factor. But it's way cheaper to buy the big cardboard tubs of oatmeal and measure it out yourself.

    I have 1/2 cup of All Bran and 1/2 cup of Skim Milk when I eat cold cereal. 1/2 cup of All Bran has 48% of the daily reccomended Fibre intake on a 2000 Calorie/day diet :)
