    Smile Oatmeal for Bulking (Gained 13lbs-3weeks)


    Oatmeal of champions: Using water not milk

    All bought at aldis.
    Whole Grain Oatmeal tin :$1.50
    Honey / Syrup :$ 2.99 or 99Cents for syrup
    Cinnamon: $ 1-2
    Vanilla Yogurt (non fat) - $1.60
    Peanut Butter : $1.50

    Recipe : Bowl of oatmeal usually being 2-3 Cups of oatmeal.
    1 Scoop of PB / 3 Scoops of Vanilla Yogurt / Cinnamon / And Either Lite Syrup for flavor or honey. Syrup of course is going to taste alot better then honey, but honey is better for you because it is pre-digested.

    They got grannola cereal with raisins you could always add for additional calories and flavor/texture : $1.50

    Nutrional information ~
    600 Calories
    175 Cal from fat.

    Iron 30%
    Vitamin D 3-5% Depending on how much yogurt you use.
    Calcium 3-5%
    Vitamin A 1%

    14G of Fiber - (50% of daily)
    23-27g of Protein (50-60%)
    230mg of Potassium (7%)
    380mg of Sodium (20%)
    114g of Carbs (32%)
    13g of Fat (24%)

    Without syrup *But adds the most flavor*
    Minus 150Mg of sodium / 22g of Carbs / 100 Calories.

    After reading about HFCS I'm going to throw away the syrup today and switch back to honey which i was originally using. My god do the manufacturing companies of HFCS love screwing over people for money.

    High Fructose Corn Syrup and Honey This article very interesting for the reasoning.

    That macronutrient breakdown looks pretty bad. I would consider that a "dirty" bulk.

    Why not reduce the amount of carbs (by using the honey) and add two scoops of whey protein? Then you can get a bit closer to a 40/40/20 nutrient ratio.

    no way man, Add the protein to the oatmeal after it cools off. Its fricken delicious. (you might need a packet or two of splenda, depending on how sweet the protein is)

    Meh just drink the shake while you eat the oats... no need to ruin some perfectly delicious oatmeal by tossing some powder on top of it.

    Just use sugar free syrup! I'm cutting for contest and I use a very small amount of it with my oatmeal. That + cinnamon + splenda + salt makes it not even taste like a diet food. The syrup is extremely low calorie. 1/4 cup is only 30 calories, and the amount I use is maybe 5-8 calories.

    EDIT: Another AMAZING thing you can do. Whole grain cereal/ whatever slow digesting cereal of your choice plus Labrada Lean Body Vanilla is absolutely amazing. If I had a large supply of it, I would never use Milk again, and the shake is only 9g of fat with most from MCT oil, 9g of carbs, none of it sugar, and 40g of protein. That is clean enough for a cut! Heck on a bulk throw in some sugar free syrup! Omgawd I need to stop talking about food. I'm 8 weeks out right now.... so hungry....

    You gained 13 lbs in three weeks from oatmeal................either you're full of **** (which would be impossible with the amount of fiber you're taking), or you're full of ****.

    Arrow Lol


    No i'm actually not kidding i did gain the weight It's been 3 1/2 weeks i got weighed in monday at 179 at the plasma place and my cutting weight 3 weeks ago was at 164/165 ... Ive been eating that meal no joke 3-4 times a day + other foods. Mass consuming foods

    For example..
    Two days ago Ate 4 Spinach wraps (tortilla) with Ham, Tomatoes, Mustard, and Cucumbers, and Chicken Salad.
    With 3 Bowls of that oatmeal
    5 Servings of fruits.
    + Usually 2 P-shakes

    I prob could beat the guy who does those eating contests for hotdogs lol.

    Plus the only cardio i could do is like 1-2 times a week for 10-15 mins for Tugs for my fraternity. And now that i hurt my ribs Hardly any cardio and still lifting thru the hurt ribs.

    Just growing like a beast and ****ting like a sewage system haha

    Biggest strength increase caused by Natty pb i noticed, I did eggs 15-16 a day, but no difference without in strength/recovery.

    Try mega-dosing liver tabs. That's now on my to-do list when I realized how cheap http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/u...-500-tabs.html are.

    Update your avatar weight from 167--> 182 though, and congrats on the gains.

    Maybe Im confused? Isnt 2-3 cups of oatmeal kinda a lot? Isnt every 1/2 cup 150 cals? 3 cups, 900 cals and a **** load of oats... Or are you making bulk and just eating about a serving out of it at a time?

    Edit: I didnt read the whole thread before, so it makes more sense now after about post #10.
