The Calorie Content Of Ramen Noodles Without Seasoning

Is it healthy to eat soaked, uncooked steel cut oats? I'm getting mixed messages about the health benefits and difficulties of digesting whole grains.
It's ok: Uncooked soaked oats, like in muesli, are ok. Cooking breaks down cell walls, turns it into porridge, released mucilages and soluble fiber; makes it easier re: digestion, but not likely an issue with normal GI tract. Arguably some of the undigested carbs might increase gas (fermented by bowel bacteria). ...Read more

I bet you will lose some lbs. ...Read more
Insulin release: Hi. Most dairy products have some sugars in them, and they stimulate insulin release accordingly. Butter has no sugars, but is usually put on things that have sugars/carbohydrates, and as such, insulin is still released in response to the whole package.
