Probably an easy question for most, I see everyone say, GET OATS with everything. I just got some and have been eating lots for past few days since I am bulking, but what do you get from oats that your body needs so badly that doesn't come from anything else? lol
Does it help for bulking or building muscle? or it is just a very healthy decision for food.

it is a box of like morning oats, little grains of stuff. Not powdered but closes I can find. It doesn't mix too well, and hard to drink in a shake I make with it, but I might try that Oat Flour stuff. lol

If you use a coffee grinder, do NOT use it for coffee afterwards. For some reason when I did it in the past it made me throw up my coffee afterwards. *(Yes, I cleaned the grinder)

Cholesterol lowering, full of antioxidants, assists with keeping blood sugar levels stable and the immune system functioning well. Also a great and tasty carb source with fibre and gives you sustained energy. I always have a bowl pre-workout.

Anyone use McCann's Irish oats? I saw them in the store the other day and the nutritional facts looked fairly decent. Here's a link:

The GI of rolled oats is not effected by grinding. Steel cut on the other hand would be. The nutritional values remain unchanged.

- High fiber content
- Cheap, which means I can spend more money on steroids
- Lowers cholesterol
- Better bowel movements
- Great for recovery and pre-workout nutrition
- Very convenient and easy to use
If oats was a woman I'd have to marry her

I eat oats three or four times a day. There's not a better, more convenient source of carbs in my opinion.

Oats have numerous uses in food; most commonly, they are rolled or crushed into oatmeal, or ground into fine oat flour. Oatmeal is chiefly eaten as porridge, but may also used in a variety of baked goods, such as oatcakes, oatmeal cookies, and oat bread. Oats are also an ingredient in many cold cereals, in particular muesli and granola. Oats may also be consumed raw, and cookies with raw oats are becoming popular.

Xodus, Why do you have to buy the Old Fashioned Quaker Oats. What is wrong with the Quick Oats.

So, let's say I'm lazy and I am in a hurry and need quick carbs. Can I just eat a handful of oats straight out of the tub?

Quick Oats are rolled thinner when processed to make them cook faster. I believe they are less calorically dense too. Sugar content would be more suspect in the 'Instant Oats' vs. Quick Oats.
The old fashioned take the same amount of time to cook in the microwave as the 'quick', If you are grinding them in a shake, not sure it actually would matter much, other than having to increase the volume to get the same calorie count.
Steel Cut would be the most calorically dense.

In fact I pulled this from Quaker
What is the difference between Quaker Old Fashioned Oatmeal and Quick Quaker Oats?
Quaker Old Fashioned Oats are whole oat groats that are rolled to flatten them. They contain all parts of the oat grain including the bran, endosperm and germ portion. Quick Quaker Oats are made the same way but are simply cut into slightly smaller pieces so they cook faster.
I'm not saying you are wrong, I honestly don't know.

Makes sense, I will stick with the old fashioned just to be on the safe side.

I buy oats 3 to 4 tubs at a time and the store usually mixes the tubs together. Needless to say I have two tubs of each currently and they cost the same. Old fashioned and Quick are nutritionally identical, unless they're lying to us. The only difference is that the quick oats cut better in a blender than the whole oats.
BTW, I agree with you Hurley about the grin. It's kinda creepy to have them all lined up...staring at you...smiling...
