are the quick oats still just 100% oats? or is there a bunch of sugar and garbage in it? ... assuming they aren't the instant oats and just the ones that are kind of grounded already they are great PWO

just check the pkgs. If they aren't "regular" flavor, chances are they have a lot of added sugar, etc.

Oats (plain) and whey, are an awesome anytime meal.

I recently started eating the real oats as opposed to the quick oats. It's three minutes in the microwave instead of one, but the taste and texture are totally different (and better IMO) and I bet it's healthier that way too.
Also, does grinding oats to make quick oats raise the GI number of the oats?

not sure how it would increase the GI. however, it would more than likely speed up the digestion process.

Nope. Unlike wheat & corn, grinding oats does not raise GI.Originally Posted by hypo

oats should be a staple part of any bodybuilding diet, whether bulking or cutting, oats are perhaps the best carb source. Malto, on the other hand is something that should only be taken PWO.

Strange, I like the porridge-ish texture of quick oats, can't stand the rough and chewey texture of old fashioned oats.Originally Posted by hypo

Well, then you're just never gonna reach your potential!!! I'm kidding. I think the difference is pretty marginal. No doubt the slower, lower GI anything is gonna be best, and the rough, natty whole gravel-like oats are the very best you can eat. But if you're dialed in, and you're eating oatmeal consciously and staying on top of things, you're gonna be just fine. Bottom line is oats are good any way, unless they're in a sweetened crap cereal (hot or cold).Strange, I like the porridge-ish texture of quick oats, can't stand the rough and chewey texture of old fashioned oats.
