Oatmeal wins every time!! Plus if you eat it plain: meaning add 5 spoonfuls in a bowl with water and microwave for 2 minutes you'll be eating a solid carb meal and then add 6 egg whites if it is for breakfast!! :cool:

I love grits, but they are made from corn. Corn overall is high on the glycemic index. I would go with oatmeal.

Anyone use steel cut oats?

600 calories per cup.

For bulking. Grits in AM, Oats in PM.

For cutting. Maybe Oats in AM.

I HATED oatmeal until I found steel cut. Now I eat them every day - with a scoop of strawberry protein powder for breakfast. It's my favorite meal of the day! :) Keep in mind that 600 calories is measured dry. With steel cut, your ratio is 4:1 water to oats, so 1 cup cooked is actually 1/4 C dry or 150 calories.

fruit?
 
more vitamins more minerals possibly same fiber content? i used to eat oatmeal or grits then realized they are boring in comparison to the taste of fruit and fruit might have more nutrients. don't know this as fact but i think its a definite possibilty. sorry to high jack thread but i think its workth mentioning.

Agreed. The enzymes, minerals, and vitamins in fruits and greens have an edge over grain foods for a bodybuilder, imo.

Also, if you consider the validity of total renal acid load creating negative effects including bone demineralization that is caused by grain foods, and meat intake; then you'll see the clear winner for carb sources are fresh fruits and green veggies.

So I noticed that the old fashioned oats were kinda bloating me.
Switched to steel cut and love the whole taste/texture effect,
but still kinda bloated me.
some kinds of complex carbs do that to me, bread, pasta, rice is almost OK, but other than that...all the grains.
Mostly using sweet potato (love 'em...)

So maybe I could do some thing different?
Right after this diet...

(hazy light in the distance...)

you think that I could...you know...
eat fruit?

Well raw fruits and greens have enzymes. Yes, many of these serve the food's innate requirements and are destroyed by your own digestive system, however, many flora enzymes will continue to be beneficial for you. In addition, cooking your veggies properly will "unlock" may minerals and enzymes that you will benefit from as well. Bloating and gas is one sign of a possible enzyme deficiency. If you choose to eat starchy foods like sweet taters, go for it. However, to get the maximum nutritional benefits from it, you should juice it or eat them raw.

RAW FOODS?
 
So would a good rule for this system be
"don't eat it if you can't eat it raw?"

I like rules that I can remember...:)

So I would choose low GI and get about half,
gram for gram, the amount of protein for each meal.
i.e. 50 gms protein 20-25 gms carb?

oatmeal...

"Also, if you consider the validity of total renal acid load creating negative effects including bone demineralization that is caused by grain foods, and meat intake; then you'll see the clear winner for carb sources are fresh fruits and green veggies."

Can some one explain what this means - because as far as I knew pancreatic bi-carbonate is released to neutralise acid in the small intestine, if the environment were to acid then absorption is impaired (at the least).

Also - and the mechanism of bone-demineralisation would be nice. (thats how grain foods and meat cause it - not the text book physiology)
Please be as technical as you like - I can follow it.

I think it is all about preference and how your stomach handles it. I prefer oatmeal, but again they both are carb sources, so either will do the job. I just like oatmeal better.

BigChef 06-06-2009 04:24 PM

Lenny is correct ! Oatmeal is more natural than grits !

Oatmeal all the way !

marilyn 06-07-2009 04:55 AM

good stuff...
 
no oatmeal or grits, or grains for me...not good for O blood types....I get really bloated and hate my stomach to look or feel that way.....

I react much better to fruits and veggies too.....but not all fruits and veggies work well with certain blood types/digestive tracks.
