Best oatmeal to eat
I used McCann's but not the 5 -min kind, just the regular. Now I use bulk-buy from Winco and I can't tell the difference. I cook 1 cup dry with 3 3/4 cup water (I like it kind of chewy) 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 cup dried cranberries, then I keep it in the fridge and eat 1/2 cup of this each morning with a teaspoon of margarine and 1/3 cup 1% milk. Easy and tasty. I don't worry about carbs too much if they are the complex kind. The cranberries might be too sugary for you though. If you bring it to a boil and let it sit while you are at work, it mostly cooks itself. Stir and bring it to a boil again when you get home, let it sit a while to complete cooking, and put it in the fridge.

Another thing to consider: Are you iron-deficiency anemic? I'm borderline, but I find my energy levels are much better if I take an iron supplement daily. I make sure to get FERROUS GLUCONATE, since the other kinds always give me stomach trouble. And I agree with the other posters that you haven't been eating enough.
