A friend of mine who is really involved with weight training and body building was telling me the other day that if he could eat only one thing by which to put on some serious muscle mass it would be porridge ( rolled oats ). His logic stems from when he was briefly in prison and saw another prisoner who was very well built lifting a load of weights in the prison gym.
This prisoner would barter away all he had with the other prisoners just to procure boxes and boxes of oats! I always assumed you would need loads of protein to put on quality mass but this sort of implies that carbs seem to be the main thing as I cant see him getting much in the way of protein from the milk he was consuming.
What do you guys think?
