    Making oatmeal edible

    Alright, so I eat a lot of Quaker old fashioned rolled oats. However, it takes me about half a goddamn hour to get a dry cup (cooked, of course) down. What can I do to make this stuff more edible? I mean, 300 calories worth of oats is quite a bit, so I expect it to take a while, but this is ridiculous. It's so bland and thick.

    I've thought about cutting up a banana or two to put in it, does that work well? I'll give that a shot tomorrow. Also, when you put oats in a blended protein shake, can the oats be dry, or should they be cooked? I'm blending them dry, but I'm worried they won't digest completely that way and it will be wasted.

    All oat tips are appreciated!

    quaker came out with a new instant oatmeal called weight control or something like that, but the banana bread flavor tastes awesome and it has somepretty good stats. It is more filling and has a good amount of fiber and protien in it.

    experiment.. add chocolate syrup, bananas, fruit, etc. in it.. try it with milk.. cinnamon is good, chocolate protien powder, etc.

    or just grind it up into a powder w/ a coffee grinder and throw it in a protein shake

    or just mix it with 6 egg whites and make pancakes

    When I was bulking I couldnt eat a cup of oats when I cooked them, they were too starchy. My solution was to eat it like cereal. I sprinkled a little stevia on top and ate them cold and raw. Not bad actually.

    On high carb days I eat so much oats it is insane. I love them so much with just a little sugar free syrup and cinamon. I can't believe people don't like them, oh well....

    I eat mine with 3 packets of sweet-n-low. Or you could try that and sugar free maple syrup. Tastes like heaven.

    Whole oat flour. I get it bulk at my local co-op. It's just ground whole oats. I put 1/2 cup in my morning shake. Goes down nice and easy!

    I love oats..eat them every day at least once. I always put a few packets of splenda in them. Sometimes I chop up a banana and throw that in as well. Lately I've been using Smuckers Sugar Free Jam (or fruit preserves or something), and throwing a scoop of that into the oats. I love oats

    You wont beleive how little muscle milk it takes to add lots of flavor to oatmeal. Just try your favorite kind. just make sure there is a little extra water when you add it.

    Since I'm not a pregnant woman and I don't even know what cecal weight is,,,,,, and none of those side effects including getting fat.

    I'm going to stick with it.

    The cecum is a sac in your intestines.

    And there's more to life than getting fat. Let's just look at the side-effects directly related to body building. That's why we're all here, isn't it? Body building?

    First the "Decreased red blood cell count":

    "A lot hinges on the ability of the body to transport oxygen. Oxygen is transported in the blood by the pigment of the red blood cells (hemoglobin)." Any defeciency "can impair the oxygen-transporting capacity of the body with the resulting drop in athletic performance." -- http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/md56.htm

    Next, "Enlarged liver and kidneys":

    Being that body builders rely on a diet and supplements that are hard on the liver and kidneys, they need to make sure they keep these organs in pristine working order so that the body can safely process everything.

    "High-protein diets are generally well tolerated by healthy adults. But a dramatic increase in protein-rich foods may be dangerous for people with liver or kidney disease." -- http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hig...-diets/AN00847

    I mean "lots and lots"? I'm sure you don't need to coat your foot with "lots and lots" of a toxic substance.

    Try something like Stevia instead:
    "Stevia has many favorable and exciting health benefits and it is completely non-toxic. The herb is nutrient rich, containing substantial amounts of protein, calcium, and phosphorous, as well as sodium, magnesium, zinc, rutin, vitamin A, vitamin C, and over 100 phytonutrients. Stevia is a helpful aid in weight loss due to the fact that it contains no sugar, no calories and has been shown to reduce craving for sweets and fatty foods." -- http://chetday.com/stevia.html

    * Atrophy of lymph follicles in the spleen and thymus (EO51, EO56, EO151)
    * Increased cecal weight (E151)
    * Reduced growth rate (EO57)
    * Decreased red blood cell count (EO55)
    * Hyperplasia of the pelvis (EO57)
    * Extension of the pregnancy period
    * Aborted pregnancy (E134)
    * Decreased fetal body weights and placental weights (EO32)
    * Diarrhea
    1.) Scientific investigation regarding sucralose is sketchy at best; and I don't even know how many garbage pails full of sucrolose it would take to yield a 40% in my thymus. I wouldn't invest too much into the "proven" effects of such artificial sweetners. Sodium Saccharine is a great example of our "proven" research, which deemed it carcinogenic, and was later proven totally incorrect and non-applicable when referencing human consumption.

    2.) The alternative "natural" sweeteners have a few of their own proven side-effects:
    * Being fat
    * Being very fat or "obese"
    * Diabetes Type II
    * Depression
    * Low self-esteem and self-worth
    * Eating disorders
    * Tooth decay and gum disease
    * Insulin resistance
    * Cancer (esp. within lower abdominal organs)
    * Sleep apnia
    * Insomnia or "troubled sleep"
    * Lethargy
    * Etc, etc.

    3.) It's interesting to me that many of those who take aas, major cns stimulants, and/or other chemicals would worry about the potential side effects of a few packets of splenda, especially considering that 99% of the food sold in our supermarkets is garbage anyway. It's like we're straining out a gnat to swallow a camel.

    eating them raw sucks tho.. in this sense... that i like to have the most volume possible.. when you eat them raw, its like there's notthing there !

    when you cook them they grow to like 4x the volume..

    what about people who eat SUPER freak healthy. no processed **** or any sweetners or anything?

    I like to throw in some berries... i havent tried it with pineapple juice yet, but the bromelain in pineaplle helps aid in digestino a ton, espeically with ur protein. Its great to throw in tuna, just a tiny bit to give it flavor, but not too much to kill ur Carb count for the day

    Immma try my next meal of oats with some pineapplle juice. yummzors
