    Oats + Protein


    OK so I notice when people eat there high protein meals or down their whey protein shakes, they like to throw down some oats too


    i cant put my finger on exactly why, im guessing because it helps with protein absorbtion/release being it a healthy carb?



    hmm so im asking why exactly, how (blended in, before, seperate?)


    and, would it be sufficient to just poor out my regular packs of oatmeal for now untill i go to the store haha?

    People use Oats in shakes because it taste good, is convenient, and is a great source for carbs.

    You can blend them, do whatever you want.


    I don't know what your regular packs of oatmeal are.


    Also, you are posting in the wrong section. Check out the nutrition section.

    One of the mods will probably move it to the proper section... but I usually cook my oats in skim milk. I may try throwing them in with my ON but doesn't sound to good.

    Oats out of the box, protein powder, add water and stir. Then use a spoon to eat.

    it's the old fashioned oats that you need!
    not the packets (those are instant)

    to achilles and kasket: throw the old fashioned oats in a coffee grinder first, it grinds the oats up into a fine powder. THEN put it in a shaker bottle, add your whey protein and water (or milk), shake, and enjoy!
    you can now drink it instead of eating it with a spoon or eating oatmeal separately.

    Steel Cut Oats is really where it is at.

    Too bad they don't taste as good as Rolled.

    its is used as a form of low gi carbs in a post workout shake. That is why they "throw down their oats too".

    For calories I blend mine w/ ATW protein and milk. Use Quaker type old fashioned oats or quick oats, but sometimes I eat the instant packets too just for ****s and giggles.

    Try the Quaker Weight Control sometime. More expensive, but higher in both fiber and protein content than regular oats. The so-called "gram of sugar" is actually in regular oats as well; just not listed on most brands since they can leave it out legally due to allowed variance in their measurements. If you check the USDA though, a cup of regular oats has about a gram sugar.

    Besides the rolled oats I throw in my shakes, I eat an oatmeal called Sturm's. It's sugar free, contains flax, grape seed extract, green tea extract, etc. It tastes awesome. I even scanned the label for you people.

    Two scoops of double-chocolate ON whey, one cup of raw Quaker old-fashioned oatmeal, 1 Tbsp flax seed oil, and a cup of whole milk. Eat with spoon. Best shake I've ever had!

    The oats help put your body into an efficient glucose/insulin phase which is optimal for muscle growth.( natural IGF ) It also gives me a sleepy everthing is wonderful kind of feeling.

    Do you know if there is a difference metabolically if you eat raw versus cooked?

    I can't stand cooked oats. After about 3/4 cup I start gagging. Happens with baked/mashed potatoes too but not with raw oats.

    Here is the Quaker Weight Control Oatmeal label:



    As you can see, 6 grams of fiber, 7 grams of protein. 2 grams of unsaturated fat, 0 grams trans fat. And it tastes really good too. Both flavors taste good IMO, but the Banana Bread is the best.

    Bump for the Quaker weight control, they taste way better and have almost the same nutritional content of old fashioned oats.

    Yeah what he said... Always consume some good complex carbs after a workout with your protein shake. I've read it everywhere. Well I need to take an organic chemistry class next semseter. Then maybe I'll understand the chemical reactions involved with muscle synthesis.

    It contains an undefined amount of maltodexrtin so you should count somewhere between 1-5g sugars. Just nit picking tho.

    Now that i am in cut mode and carb cycling I have most all my carbs right around my workout. I use 1/2 cup organic rolled oats with 1 scoop on chocolate whey, 2 tbsp organic natty pb, and some splenda! This is seriously tastey! Post workout I down 1 scoop on chocolate whey with water, and then 1/2 cup of the oats w/ one scoop choc. whey and some splenda. Can't beat it!

    Anyone else eat oats with meat? Ham and oats is a good combo, Im eating a sandwich with roast beef/egg/oats/wheat bread and some sunflower kernels. Pretty good stuff to me, also eat them and drink a glass of water/milk/oj.

    I add oats to just about every meat dish. Oats + chicken, oats + shrimp, oats + tuna.

    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).

    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.

    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.
