I've tried playing around with different sources of carbs during a carb cycling diet and have found that having oatmeal as my main source of carbohydrates makes me soft in the chest, lower abs and lower back region. When I had ezekiel bread alone, my look was a lot drier. I liked it a lot.
I am curious if there are other carb sources that I can substitute besides ezekiel bread that will help me achieve the same look. I bought steel cut oats but am afraid they might be causing water retention as well. Any thoughts on yams, grits, or any other popular sources that might serve as good alternatives?
(I know glycogen inherently draws water I just want a source that will do the least amount of damage so to speak)
