Oatmeal is a rich source of soluble fiber,and has been scientifically proven to reduce cholesterol? Cholesterol is the fatty substance produced by the liver and other cells in the body. While you need some cholesterol to make hormones and breakdown the fats you eat, levels that are too high can cause problems.
There are foods that actually reduce cholesterol. Oatmeal is one of them
Some people train,others merely "work out" !!

I find oatmeal to be incredibly good for my stomach. Since I have been having oatmeal for breakfast I have not had a single upset stomach<something I am prone to>. When I have been ill I have never thrown up. I know this is not scientific but it works for me
Bringing one up from the basement archives here Tim...
I've read that oats turn rancid really quickly, so chances are that the ones we buy in the shop have been steamed to prevent this. So if my oats aren't raw, that means I could...
soak 'em for a few minutes, then whack 'em into the blender with some eggs, protein powder, bit of milk maybe. Ok, it's a little grainy... but doesn't feel like it spikes my insulin like the boiled potato blend I used for awhile, a nice slow burn.
Are you still throwing oats into your shakes? Any thoughts on doing this?
