I used to eat their instant oatmeal in various flavors...strawberries & cream was my favorite, but most oats just don't agree with me so I haven't had quaker oats in over a year.


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...

 

Grocery list:

instant oatmeals are BAD !

they have added sugar and other unwanted stuff!

u could try simple plain 100% rolled or cut oats and see

Oats in general don't seem to agree with me. which is sad because they are so filling.

If they are rolled oats, then they are very good for you. When it says "rolled", or "steel cut", or "old-fashioned" oats it basically means it is an unprocessed, whole oat. They have little to no sugar, fat, salt, or cholesterol, and are high in protein, fiber, and good calories.

When you buy regular oatmeal. it is more processed than rolled oats. Rolled Oats > Instant Oatmeal

A lot of bodybuilders use them as a staple in a low fat and low sugar diet, and people with digestive issues eat them a lot because they are simple in nature, therefore easy to digest, but still provide lots of nutrients.

I have at least one bowl a day; they're good stuff smile.png

if u r gluten intolerant then its better to either avoid oats(they are said to be contaminated) or try brands that claim 100% gluten free(certified).

quaker doesn't claim so as far as i know.

but if u r okay with slight/no gluten then go for quaker or any oats really.

i agree with CBIOT13 about instant oatmeals , loads of bad stuff,really.

including loads of preservatives and added fake colours and synthetic stuff at times.

that is probably because the amount due to cross contamination in oats is very lil'.

but there are brands like quaker which doesn't claim to be "gluten-free" so celiacs dnt have them.

there are a few brands which are certified and claim to be 100% gluten free & those are the only brands suitable for celiac patients.

if you are intolerant then its okay if you avoid or have oats(with lil'/no gluten).

but for those with celiac disease its a complete no-no.

for those with no intolerance whatsoever, gluten is not poison.

its good to have limited amount of whole grains in more than one way.

that is what am slowly learning from here and there.

so its okay to unfollow those gluten free poems and limit them to your resistance power.

i've been off gluten for sometime now . i have rice & oats(as evening snack) but i do have a lil' patty or samosa or something that has wheat now & then.

i will try to re-introduce wheat slowly to see if it effects me in any way.

p.s whole wheat is good for brains.

Nothing sold from generic brands are very good. Get Bobs Red Mill. Even if you are not gluten free. Better quality. Or get Mccann's Irish Oatmeal from Trader Joes.

It's all about the way things are handled, processed and where they are sourced. That is the key to eating right. Doing your homework about it. :)

You don't ave a better source than Quaker oats?


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

You only get these mass produced American brands in India? No Irish or Scottish brands or bulk from Ireland or other cool climate?
