    Grits.....good or bad carb????


    Alright i like oatmeal as much as the next guy, but in the mourning i am looking for something different. I was thinking about grits but i know they are relatively high on the Glycemic index. I know Big a$$ Ronnie eats them every mourning but I mean he s pro and well they're different. So would these be a good thing to use instead of oatmeal in the mourning while on a lean mass cycle?????

    No, not as a complete swap because of the goodness that oatmeals provides. mmmmm oaty!

    I dunno, I bought them with the same idea months ago and then I compared the two and there was no justification to swap the two unless on a cheat or off day. imho

    Gotcha. Here's the info on raw rolled oats:


    Food Name and Manufaturer: Raw rolled oats, uncooked: Lowan's Whole Foods, Box Hill, Vic, Australia Australia

    GI (vs Glucose): 59 +/- 4

    Serve Size: 95

    Carb per Serve (g): 58.7

    Glycemic Load: 34.4

    Time Period of Test: 2 hours

    Subjects Used in Test: Normal

    Reference: SUGiRS 2003



    So apparently grits actually have lower GI

    Damn, you're not kidding. Variety is definately something you miss unless you do a lot of prep work. spices are about the only thing I change now

    Yeah, chicken, rice....spice. Seriously, I couldn't justify getting all this stuff for these elaborate meals when i'm the only one in my house that eats this stuff. Too many things would go bad before I would get to use them up and it would piss off the wife. Hell she still yells at me for throwing the yolks away. So i told her to get her ass in the kitchen and start baking some pies with it She then began, what I like to call, a beatdown grande.

    why even eat rice? its boring as hell, and a vastly inferior carb to a whole list of other carb sources. Sweet potatoes, oats, rye flakes, barley, lentils, fruit/veggies, quinoia, etc.

    The only time ill even cook rice anymore is in a big ass pot of black beans simply because the 2 are easy to cook and last for a week (and cheap as hell).

    yea this last week i started putting some pinto beans in with my rice and making a mexican like dish. I figure it'll get me through another week ok chicken and rice then its time to go back to the drawing board. Well ive been on the grits not for a while and so far i cant really tell what kind of tole its tekeing on my physice. Abbs are blured but im bulking heavy for this week and finally @190, but its 2 weeks earlyer than i wanted. So next week im dropping my carbs and going back to the good ol' oats. I can always count on them for beeing the best breakfast carb ever.......
