    So, oatmeal…. There are so many different answers when I ask whether or not it spikes insulin in the morning. Is my oatmeal with a little butter and salt affecting my fat burning?

      Hi Mary! Great question. The answer, however, as to whether or not oatmeal spikes your insulin, is relative. Does it spike blood sugar and insulin compared to a donut? No. Compared to bacon or eggs? Yes. To know if it is affecting your fat burning, you have to consider: is it an improvement for you? If switching from a donut to oatmeal, that would probably HELP fat burning potential because it’s LESS blood sugar/insulin bomb. However, if it’s oatmeal versus an omelet, the oatmeal would impair fat burning compared to the omelet. Check out episode Q&A 6 for more on this.
