I have to cut on carbs..can i have quaker oatmeal and cereal drink instead of whitebread?.. im 33.3weks preg.. pls help?

Depends on amount: I'm not sure what you mean by saying, "I have to CUT on carbs" since both oatmeal & cereal drink are going to have carbs as well. If you mean actual # OF CALORIES then, you must know the comparison between a slice of white bread & the other items. If you mean # calories FROM carbs then, again same thing. Wheat or Whole grain better is better than white to start. In the end depends on amounts. ...Read more

Opinions differ: Dear Sir: Many seem to think that the instant oatmeals are not good for you because of many reasons but then they are really not bad if you use boiling water as this actually will cook the oatmeal that is there. It is better to eat this than to not eat at all and eat other foods that are worse for you. There are better choices but you will be fine eating this off and on. ...Read more
