Go Old-Fashioned With Your Oatmeal! Did you know that oatmeal was one of the top 10 fat burning foods? So I bet you agree that it's a good idea to eat it too. Now wouldn't you like to get the most out of your oatmeal? Then go for the old-fashioned kind rather than instant.
Here's why: Old-fashioned oatmeal contains a high percentage of hard, compact starch granules, as well as fiber. These granules are more complicated to break down and they slow the digestive process so you feel full longer and get more out of your oats.
In contrast, instant oatmeal has been pre-softened during processing so it's digested more quickly leaving you hungry sooner.
