Dear Andy
Generally speaking, individuals who are on a diet to lose weight benefit from eating foods with a low glycaemic index (GI) which keeps them satisfied for longer and prevents hunger pangs. So while Morvite instant porridge is a good food, it is listed as high-GI in the SA Glycemic Index & Load Guide. Bokomo instant oats are listed as intermediate-GI, so they would keep your blood sugar levels steady for longer. However the GI of both porridges can be lowered by adding 1/2 cup low-fat milk or yoghurt to them.
