Oakland Personal Trainer Shares Why You Should Eat Oatmeal

In this video, Oakland personal trainer Jenn shares with us the difference between instant vs. regular oatmeal. 

I bet you thought that eating any kind of oatmeal would be good for you…wrong. Instant oatmeal that has all the prepackaged sugars and perservatives carries a lot of sodium.

And this is bad because too much sodium can effect weight gain, make it harder to lose weight, and can decrease your performance during exercise.

The daily recommended amount is 1500mg a day. Most meals you eat at a restaurant or what you buy at the super market has well over the recommended daily amount. That’s why it’s very important to read food labels when shopping at a east bay super market.

In this video Jenn shows the difference between instant oatmeal with sugar compared to the oatmeal without sugar. The instant oatmeal with sugar was carrying 300 mg of sodium and the oatmeal without sugar had 80 mg of sodium per serving which is a huge difference.

Oakland personal trainer recommends quaker oats oatmeal

We recommend to eat the plain Quaker Oats due to the low amount of sodium.

Now if you like cereal compared to oatmeal, I have bad news for you…Most cereal at the super market is high in sugar and sodium. There is really no nutritional value in cereal. The only cereal that we found to be healthy is “Go Lean”

Go Lean has fiber, the right amount of carbs, protein, and low in sodium with no artificial sugar or flavors. But be careful because once you start to add milk, your caloric intake has changed.
