I knew a guy who would only consume artificial sweeteners. He developed artificial diabetes.

Artificial sweeteners are even worse. I never use those.

Instant Quakers oatmeal with water added. Splenda with a dash of fat free milk. Being a type two diabetic, I wouldn't expect anyone to like this simple way to make it.

I also eat a slice of toast with egg beaters and then go to the gym. Washed down with water.

Before anyone criticizes, I had doing this routine 5 days a week for many years with no ill effects. It works for me.

I don't disagree with the people who add other stuff or use other oatmeal. It's probably healthier.

It is all about personal preference. There is no right or wrong answer.

I put raw uncooked steel cut oats in my yogurt (Costco brand - plain, nonfat greek) along with fresh mixed berries and walnuts. Been eating this for breakfast for years.

I also agree with Ecuadog about Bob's Red Mill products - excellent! They also have a gluten-free muesli for those who need to refrain from gluten. My son eats that every morning and enjoys it over other gluten free breakfast products.

That sounds like a dessert [not that there's anything wrong with it].

Is it 1 cup yogurt to a 1/2 cup oatmeal or even less? Your breakfast sounds a lot better then mine.

Steel cut with about 90% water and 10% milk, then some frozen fruit.

I only put in 1 ounce of oats to 8 ounces of yogurt, but you certainly could add more. I use such a small amount because I try to limit the amount of grains I eat in a day. Then I add 1 ounce of nuts and 6 ounces of berries. It's a pretty hardy breakfast, but it works for me because when I do have to go into work I never know when my next meal will be and it keeps me satisfied for a long time.

They potentially lead to brain cancer, at least in rats. I doubt any neurosurgeons use them. Artificial sweetener causes cancer in rats at levels currently approved for humans, new study suggests -- ScienceDaily

thank-you I will take your advice. If I wanted to sub the nut because that's my least favorite do you have any suggestions?
