    OATMEAL vs. GRITS

    This may be a dumb question, but regarding diet, is there a diety difference in eating grits in lieu of oatmeal? And is using plain sugar a no-no?

    Must be a southern thing, but my rednck heart has a loyalty to grits, but not at the expense of my diet.

    I think sugar is a no-no. I just use equal. I think equal may cause cancer, but that's better than being fat. You may want to choose splenda, honey, or something less toxic than equal. Sugar be a no-no.

    Fitday:

    1 cup grits, corn hominy = 110 calories, 0 fat, 124 carbs, 3 protein

    1 cup quaker old fashioned oats = 300 calories, 3 fat, 54 carbs, 12 protein

    Grits look pretty good but I just throw my oats in my shakes, I don't think grits would work too well for me. Eat them grits up, look like a good carb source in the mornin.

    Grits and sugar? I gagged once on Pone and srup (syrup for us Yankees). Why not go all out with Fruit Loops and soft bacon. I picked up a great Southern breakfast tip in Atlanta. P-nutt butter omlette. I just make them with one yolk, 8 whites and natural P-nutt butter. Anyway go with oatmeal and a little honey or Splenda on it.

    Smile Oatmeal vs Grits

    Spiritus- From what I've read part of the benefit of oatmeal(and it's ability to lower serum cholesterol levels) is it's molecular structure. As it passes through the "tube" it scrapes and collects low density lipoids(fats) and spirits them to the lower digestive tract for elimination. Combine this with it's slow burning carb profile and it is an excellent natural "supplement" Being from south Georgia I love my grits, but have given them up for oatmeal. I sprinkle raw oatmeal in nonfat vanilla yogurt with strawberries for a great postworkout snack.

    This is my first post here- I really enjoy the forum. I turn 50 next year and have been looking for an "elder" perspective on this great sport.

    I just recently started a thread about this a week or so ago. I have always hated oatmeal, but found that adding frozen fruit and 2 packets of Splenda has me now loving my oatmeal. Yesterday I added blackberries and Splenda. I kid you not...it tasted like blackberry cobbler....delicious. Oatmeal is now my favorite carb.

    The Dutchess makes me two cups of Oatmeal on every workout day. She always adds some ground Flax Seed to it as well. On other days we have a treat with the same basics done in Oatmeal pancakes which we then enjoy with some natural Applesauce spread on top. Yummy!

    Elder Perspective!

    Rick--

    First of all, welcome to JSF - you will find it to be one of the best forums out there and very helpful. As to an "elder perspective", there are many, many posters on the forum who are well over the age of "50" and have much good advise to share.

    Myself, I am age 71, and have always been interested in fitness and nutrition as a way of life. With that in mind, I have created a non-commercial site aimed at the "over 50's" gang and invite you to take a peak at: http://netconex.com/kenchi

    It is living proof that, yes, there really *is* life after 50, 60, 70 and even 80.

    I wish you the best for continued success in reaching your fitness goals and look forward to your future posts on John's forum.

    Smile I love my goop!

    After every weight workout I take a concoction of --> either Oatmeal or Grits, doesn't matter to me. I cook up six egg whites and mix them into the OM or Grits along with about tablespoon or two of Cinnamon powder.

    It's kinda drab so I usually take some kind of flavorful no calorie drink with it like a Diet Coke.

    I can tell you when I finish off a workout I am one hungry bear. A big bowl goop and eggs is great. First time or two it was...well let's say not so desireable. Now I just gorge it down like an icecream cone.

    The Grits and OM just have more carbs than I would normally eat, but within two hours of a workout I'm fine with'em.

    ---> So I don't pay much attention to either OM or grits, just a good old carb staple in my book.

    I usually take a half cup of dry Oatmeal or Grits and mix with 1 cup water. I cook it in the microwave for about 2 minutes. I use whole eggs, which I crack and pour off the whites. I cook them in skillet on the stove with just a little Pam to keep them from sticking. I mix the cooked eggs into the cooked grits or Oatmeal and stir in the cinnamon powder. The cinnamon is a herb and does a bunch of great things for you. This way I get cinnamon without sugar like so many food products with cinnamon have. This is a very quicky meal and it does get me going.

    or go to a whole foods store and look for Oat Groats, These are a whole grain oat.

    Oatmeal is better for you than grits. The oatmeal needs to be the old-fashioned oats vs the quick oats. Glycemic index plays a roll in which are better for you. Longer cooking oats have more fiber,therefore, keeping you fuller longer. The quick oats and grits are good for pre-workout meals for quick energy.

    Takes so much time to cook the old fashioned steel cut oats, over 30mins if I remember correctly from last time I tried them. Quick oats are, well, quick. If it means that it makes me stick to my diet I will go for quick oats.

    Would rather have quick oats for brekky than a quick quarter pounder with cheese and fries later in the day because I missed breakfast and was hungry as a mofo'er.

    No they are not cookies! They are high protein, low GI carb, fiber rich, baked nutrient clusters! You can't do that with grits!

    oat meal 95% of the time, grits once in a while. oat meal is just much more healthier when you consider the fiber/protein contents in constrast to grits.

    Oatmeal is probably "better" because of the soluble fiber content. The southern way to eat grits is mixed in with over-easy eggs, with lots of salt n peppah. Nothing wrong with sugar; I use brown sugar in oatmeal, along with butter. Plain oatmeal is just too bland. Could use fruit, I suppose, to add fiber and micronutrients not present in sugar.

    Is it weird that I can't hear the word 'grits' without thinking of Flo?

    Sugar in the morning will negatively set the tone for your blood sugar for the day and kill any catabolic fat burning you have going on from sleep time.
