I have 2-3 cups of oatmeal every morning (blended into the hardgainer breakfast: 2-3 cups raw rolled oats, 1 cup cottage cheese, a few scoops of protein powder, some blueberries, some spinach if i’m in the mood, and a bit of creatine. Credit to Chad Waterbury for the idea/recipe) and it’s surprisingly easy to get down. Whenever I cook my oats, I struggle very hard to get past the 1 cup mark, and rarely make it to 1.5.
I see oats as a perfect carb source, low gi, cheap as hell, and easy to get down mass quantities.
Is there any harm in adding another 2-3 cup oat serving later in the day, bringing my oat total to 4-6 cups. Is that a reasonable amount?
I just can’t say no to 800 grams of low gi carbs for 2 bucks!
