Default Someone Please Tell Me Why Instant Oatmeal Is Out But Regular Oatmeal Is In?

Ok so I plan to move into phase 1.5 in the next few weeks. I have been doing Phase 1 with a few interruptions for about a month so far and am looking forward to adding small amounts of grains and fruit but can not figure out why on Phase 2 you can have oatmeal but not instant????? I am assuming that they mean it has to be plain no added stuff oatmeal so I again am assuming that plain instant oatmeal would be ok but didn't know if there was actually another reason that I am unaware of. Any ideas?

Instant is more processed and has a higher glycemic load so hits your blood sugar harder. Whole oats have more fiber, take longer to digest and don't cause blood sugar spikes.
