  1. Quaker oats


    Is it any diff. between "old fashion" and "1 minute" quaker oats?


  2. Instant oats have a higher GI than regular oats. Look for rolled oats.

  3. Thaks, Bobo.

  4. I know some people have been grinding their oats down into a powder before adding it to a shake. I've found that I can just puree the **** outta the oats in the blender and you barely taste them. I've been making a 653 calorie low GI bulking shake lately. Great for the extra calories needed to grow.

    What is your std dev, cp, cpk for this process and do you have control plans in place. This is a 6 sig process...no?

    Actually, Fletch just put out a video on how to create overly complicated excel spreadsheets regarding the matter of calorie intake. I used his 14.3 step formula. It's a best seller.

    Redsky "Fat has 9 calories "

  7. Scratch that, I just drove it up to 761 calories.

    Bobo, how much stake do you put in the glycemic index? And the Insulin Index, be interested to hear your thoughts.

    Bump,

    I went and looked up oats on the GI and they had at best a moderate GI. Even steel cut oats were high. Also what are some other good low GI foods.

    Its a guide, nothing more.

    Take Oats for example. Its usually a moderate GI but when added to a protein, it drops. THis is just one exmaple of how the GI doesn't tell the whole story.

    Insulin Index is also another guide because it tells you the total glycaemic load. In addition, those who tihnk fats don't cause insulin release will find that when fat was added to many foods, the total amount of insulin release was increased (this isn't response, but total amount). It seems fat does have some effect on insulin so therefore ite best to avoid high GI carbd with fat.

    They both are a guide but do not tell the whole story. In most cases a food low on both is optimal for glucose and insulin control.

  11. Thanks Bobo.

  12. Is this a pretty good deal for rolled oats?
    http://www.store.honeyvillegrain.com...ROD&ProdID=349

  13. It's a descent price but they reem you on the shipping. The cheapest shipping rate was $20.

    I just bought some..damn they were hard to find in the grocery store. I must admit they taste a bit different.

    I've got instant oats at home, and the ingredients says %100 rolled oats. I don't get it. Oh yeah they're quaker.

  16. yeah same deal for me too

    I even went to the store, and checked the ingredients on the instant, and non-instant, and they were the same. Both %100 rolled oats.

  18. its a conspiracy I tell you!!

    Yeah a conspiracy just to mess with my head. Getting your diet down is the hardest damn thing in the world. Damn glycemic index.

  20. Finally found grocery store sells rolled oats in bulk 2$/lb.

    Good deal ( about half price of "Quaker Oats")

    Is the texture similiar to quaker oats.

  22. Quaker oats grinded finer than rolled oats. it takes a little bit longerto microwave rolled oats, other than that no difference.

  23. I like conspiracy theories, especially ones related to breakfast cereal. Seriously, I think the best (low GI/healthiest/etc.) are steel cut or oat "groats" which have everything intact. With the length of prep time, etc.though, the "real-world-almost-as-good alternative is whole rolled oats (i.e. Quaker, with Barbara Bush on the front in the hat). The original ones are better than instant, but both are pretty damn good for bodybuilding purposes. Especially, as Bobo suggests, with added protein to lower the overall GI. My personal absolute new favorite is to add 1 scoop of Dymatize Elite Butter Cream Toffee flavored protein to a bowl of oatmeal, maybe with a little extra water or milk to smooth it out. And no, I don't work for Dymatize. It's just that that flavor is the SH!T with oatmeal, especially!!!

    The are processed to be able to cook extremely fast. THis is what causes the difference in GI. They just cause a larger insulin spike than non instant.

    Processed as in how? I though they were just ground/choped finer to allow them to cook faster? And would you still get a larger insulin spike if they were not cooked as opposed to regular oats that were cooked? (when I prepair my oatmeal I just heat a cup of skim milk and then add to the oatmeal and eat. I dont add the milk and then cook the oatmeal)

  27. Is it necessary to cook/microwave them? I like to eat mine uncooked with just cold milk, is this wrong?

    They have been precooked and are thinner.

    The GI would be the almost the same regardless.

    No but some people will have digestions problems with raw oats.

  30. When I eat cold cereal, I always dump 1/2 cup of oats in with the cereal. It gives high fiber cereals like all-bran and fiber 1 a much better texture. Espcecially "all bran extra fiber", that stuff tastes/feels like compressed extruded burlap!
