How do oatmeal and oats help you bulk
Dont be lazy :
USPlabs Product Educator. I'm here to help you!
complex carbs. you need em . oats whole wheat breads those are some examples of complex carbs. make sure your oats arent 1 minute oats tho. the grounded oats make a huge difference. eat em down with milk and honey. it pretty good actually.
i blend em up with my protein shake with a banana and peanut butter yummy
I don't know how people blend oats with there shakes... it is disgusting. With me the oats all fall to the bottom and really make the shake taste like sweaty ass. I just eat oatmeal.
grind your oats in a coffee grinder and continuosly swirl/shake your shake in between swigs...i actually prefer my shakes with oats in them.
i use a professional blender at my gym since i work there. maybe it makes a difference?
i have never heard about there being a difference between 1 min quaker oats and the regular kind. i've always eaten the quick kind and it works fine for satisfying my hunger.
i mix protein in my oatmeal and eat it. this actually tastes pretty damn good, depending on what protein you use. good replacement for sugar
I always thought the 1-min instant oats were simply pre-ground regular oats.
I'm downing 3C of oatmeal a day now with my turkey/chicken and things are working out. Still trying to figure out why my weight is barely going anywhere though!! And I'm not even doing any cardio either besides simply walking. But I am lifting intensely 5 days a week starting this week coming off my 6 days week workouts. A good hour too!!!
Am testing a few more supps out to see what happens... if I feel nothing, then going back to old school for me!!!
If your lifting for 5 days, and all out intense, what is the expenditure of energy out?
You may just be at maintainence dose of calories, if your spending that much energy out... plus what type of work do you do daily? If your job is heavy work, then that'll take energy also...
If your diet is intact, and your lifting intense (heavy, not extra volume) and your not moving body weight, then your not taking in enough calories ... or, as i stated, your just burning more than your taking in, still.
Oats = Healthy Carbs + Lot of Calories = 1 of the Ultimate Bulking foods.
To bad they taste like ****.
There is nothing wrong with 1 minute oats. They simply have a greater surface area vs. volume, making them cook quicker.
Grinding oats and putting them in a shake serves the same principle.
oats is what race horses are feed guys, they go nuts on that stuff and have you seen what kind of muscle they carry
I ate steel cut oats for a while, but there are a ton of cereals/grains out there to experiment with. I actually really enjoy oat bran as a change to just plain oats, and theres some 10 grain cereals out there that are pretty good. Also you can try spelt flakes, which are like rolled oats with a different flavour. Just keep experimenting
A good place to look for more breakfast cereal ideas is Bob's Red Mill - V2 - Whole Grain and Gluten Free Products and Recipes They have some great quality cereals and grains among many things there, and you can either order online from them or find their stuff in local stores and just browse online.
What do you guys thing about Quina (keen-wa) it looks like it could be really good to add to a diet....just wondering if anyone has used it and what they thought of it?
