    Well, the quick oats have a little less fiber (which is what allows them to get soft quicker) but yeah, that's what I eat (plain or maple flavor).

    don't you want high GI carbs (dex, malto) w/ protein post workout?

    i thought oats would be make a shake more like an MRP?

  7. I use quaker oats and i just grind it up 1 cup in my magic bullet, 2scoops of ON whey and it's good to go.

    NEVER!!!!!

    High GI carbs will spike blood sugar and only lead to fat gain, even post workout. They serve no purpose.

    You don't need high GI carbs to create the insulin response post workout for storing your protein. In fact, the protein alone will cause the insulin response you need. You want slow digesting carbs because your body is incapable of forming glycogen fast enough when you spike your blood sugar like that. So in order to level your blood sugar your body will turn most to fat instead. The insulin will then store the fat.


    Dex and Malto are only useful when using insulin directly, and that's mainly as a safety precaution to make sure you don't die.

    Good info, Thx. Been getting bad advice I guess.

  10. I like using 1/3 cup oat flour in my post workout shake. I get it cheap enough in the bulk bins at the grocery store. It gives my choc shake kind of a nutty flavor.
