    I know typically bagels are a :nono:, but does this hold true for whole wheat bagels from like a bagel shop? i typically eat a turkey sandwich on a whole wheat toasted bagel for lunch, cuz its inexpensive and relatively low in sat.fat/calories.

    Nothing wrong with bagels. Carbs is good. They're just pretty dense, even a whole-wheat bagel is ~300 calories. That being said, there's no reason to not eat them if it works into your diet.

    How would you rate, in comparison, 1 cup of oatmeal (uncooked 1 cup that is) against a wholewheat bagel? I mean is a carb a carb?

    no real diff :dunno: little more fiber in the oatmeal, otherwise- whatever. This week I've had both oatmeal/protein powder and bagel/protein shake for breakfast. I consider them both essentially the same if calories are accounted for.

    Grains vs. grains, for the most part, unless it's a cinnamon vanilla chip bagel with tons of cream cheese.
