im trying to bulk up some right now and someone told me bagels are good things to eat as a snack in between meals. ive done some research on this and a bagel with cream cheese has about 300 calories. do you think eating a bagel with cream cheese in between breakfast and lunch and also in between lunch an dinner and possibly even before bed because bagels digest slow, be a good idea or not?

Yes, I eat them as snacks when I'm bulking. They are good as hell too.

The so called 'everything' bagel with some crunchy PB in the middle. Crazy awesome."I am legally blind and if I can Squat,deadlift and over all get myself to the gym then anyone can get their a$$ in gear and get strong!!" - malleus25

Theyre fine. I like jelly on one pre workout with a banana & whey shake.

Are you talking about bagels from the store (Publix etc) or bagels from a shop like Einsteins? big difference there, store bagels suck in taste compared to bagel shops. Sometimes I'll get a big bag of dunkin donuts bagels

Whole wheat bagels are a staple for me. If you look around, you can find some with up to 13g of protein too, so you're covering all angles. I have about three a day and I'm not even bulking.

without getting too much into detail consider a GI of 70+ and a huge glycemic load. i actually just stumbled onto this article:
pretty good summary

Says it isn't as bad as candy, meaning candy is worse, but it really isnt any better.Grains cause a spike in insulin. So man’s first processed food is just that—an insulin spiker. OK, it isn’t as bad as a candy bar or a glass of soda
Considering the GI of a bowl of oatmeal isn't that much different than a snickers bar for breakfast any both contain no nutrients
I would ask why are you eating oatmeal then? Why not some eggs and fruit?
