To get a version with 400 cal., 63 g. carbs, 16 g. protein, 12 g. fat; cut the banana, peanut butter & milk in half; and drop the protein powder & instant oatmeal.] This oatmeal packs a high protein, high fiber punch.

    Hmmmm, as much as I love oatmeal, chocolate and peanut butter, I'm not sure I want to use half of my daily calories on one meal. - 2/24/11

    Yeah, 650 calories in one meal is a shocker. OK for a guy who needs 2200+ cal. per day and wakes up in deficit, but not for everyone!

  • Low fat??? - 2/24/11

    I never claimed it was low-fat. In fact, I believe the total amount of fat is not nearly as important as the types of fat I consume. So high levels of poly- & monounsaturated fats, and low levels saturated fat and cholesterol are all to the good. Cholesterol fighting oat fiber is also also a plus.
