    ps- i blended my first half cup oats the other day then put it in water and heated it up. it clumped up all together and ended up throwing it out. haha so word to wise dont do that.
    Try this.. boil water, blend oats, pour slowly and stir gradually. Should help with the clumping, or you could even mix a bit of room temperature water first and it should come out pretty smooth.


    PI - You love your oats as much as I do!! How about some fats - peanuts/almonds to snack on during the day? They're pretty portable. And a few extra pieces of green wouldn't go astray either

    I get my fats in the am and before bed...I don't want to bring them much above 20%...

    why the greens? i am actually thinking of adding something like greens+, emeralds balance or miracle greens to my morning shake though to get the antioxidant benefits. but thats all.

  3. Pumping Iron, I would suggest switching up the regular just instant oats to steel cut or Irish Oats, and I would definitely increase the amount of green vegetables in your diet. You will be leaner for it. However, I agree with many other posts in this thread about fat content. I'm thinking that you should have more of the Omega 3's in your diet, but definitely not 6 cause as we all should know, high levels of Omega 6 cause inflammation. Also, you should pick up a chelater at your local health food store. Any type of clay like a Bentonite or something like that will help to suck the Mercury right out of your body and into your stool. Also, why are you using more powders than whole foods?

  4. Nick, I hate to be a jerk here but could you go back and read my first post? and also my subsquent posts...everything you jsut stated has been addressed.

  5. no worries, my mistake, im cooking meals for the day so just trying to hop on and do what I can.

    Also, if its working then let it ride

    Why more veggies?
    You want to get more Omega 3 fatty acids. I didn't see the Fishoil in your original post.

    Typical north american diets are abundant in n6 compared to n3.

    Why not Veggies? They will help with digestion. Provide excellent antioxidants. Minimum I would think 4 servings of veggies a day. There is a wide array of benefits from veggies. This isn't about just packing down the cals, it is about providing a balanced nutrient intake.

    True, but having them be portable is the problem in this intance. Macros are jsut about perfect, so don't think this is only about packing down cals...

    I'm contemplating on adding a Green+ type of product to my morning shake as well, which has a probiotic element and i take psyllium husk as night (metamucil) which aids in digestion as well...

  8. psyllium will just make you more constipated if you are getting your veggies

    how does that work?

  10. Unless you have a serious love for tuna, which I can say that I don't. You might want to try switching it up with some canned salmon. The nutritional values are about the same as tuna except for an extra gram of fat but I think your diet could handle that and the taste is awesome. Plus if I remember right there was talk earlier about how wild salmon doesn't contain mercury.

  11. I'm pretty sure most cold water fish contain some traces of mercury.

    I think grabbing canned tuna, crab, salmon, chicken and whatever else they have in that isle of costco would be a good idea. Thanks for the idea.

  12. sorry, I meant if you aren't getting your veggies.

    Psyllium is a bulking fiber, soluble, not insoluble, so it creates bulk in the intestines. The veggies is what moves **** through.

    that makes more sense.
