Here's a good link to a GI and GL index and info. Hope this helps.
Nice linkage there... Also, the chic in your avatar has a nice stomach...Originally Posted by mab904
On a side note, anyone ever eat oats straight out of the can before a workout? I don't have access to anything to cook it in before I hit the gym today, and I need to get some complex cards in, sad thing is, I had to bring the oats from home..

I've eaten dry oats plenty of times. They seem to digest just fine with me. Can even mix them with some water and let them sit a while. Softens them up a bit. Stir in some protein powder if you have it and want a bit more flavor. Done that on occasion as well.
Oh, thanks for the compliment on the flat stomach. That chick is me
I tend to eat my oats dry all the time. Take a spoonful, shovel, swig of water and swallow. I'm able to get a lot more down in a shorter amount of time than if I cook them properly. Just don't have too many
Cool beans... I was just seeking approval Didn't want to be the only weirdo eating dry oats lol
38 years old and that stomach.. I bet that drives the hubby crazy!!
thanks for the link, thats exactly what i was looking for
btw, you have a better stomach than pretty much every girl i know
Thanks for the info mab. Appreciate it. Oh, and nice link also.Originally Posted by mab904
And...your stomach rocks!
hey magickk, grind up the oats in a coffee grinder, and put it in a shaker bottle. add in a scoop of protein powder for flavor and then when you are ready to drink just add water/milk and shake.
takes about 5 min cuz its a little chunky.
Bump on the grinder. When I get my box of oats it has two bags in it. I grind up one bags worth and put it in a large glass decanter and put the other bag of whole oats in the other decanter.Originally Posted by cable626
I have a rack of 4 decanters: 1-protein, 2-CEE/Taurine/DiC, 3-ground oats, 4-whole oats. Pre workout I use them ground and post I use them whole.
do you drink whole oats PWO? if so, why do you have whole oats post and not ground--i find ground oats are much easier to drink.
seems to be more filling and satisfying until I eat my next whole food meal ~45-60 mins later. I have done it ground both pre and post...just a preference.Originally Posted by cable626
Bump that. I do the same thing.Originally Posted by cable626
