I've been craving oatmeal lately, maybe I'll try the steel cut oats and see if I like them $4 more than the old fashioned.
My triglycerides were a little high a while back, so I tried eating steel-cut oats for breakfast (among other things), to see if it would help. Six months later, I had another blood test, and the triglycerides were even higher. So, oats definitely didn't help me at all. They're still loaded with carbs, like all grains.
