eat lots of fruit, its good for you. unless you're bulking and need denser foods.

A scoop of Chocolate Whey or a chopped up banana does the trick for me...

Food for function, not for taste.

Although in this case I'd say a scoop of your favourite flavour of protein powder.

well...may be it's looks strange to you but me I eat mine dry ....without water and it tasts great .I use the old fashioned Quaker Oat.Sometimes if I eat it on the morning I mix it with the white of my 8 eggs ...like an omelette and it is very good for me.

if i'm in a hurry i put the raw oats in a cup and put water on them. they go down really fast that way.

10-26-2003, 10:05 PM
i dunno about u guys but i couldnt even eat them if i had to eat em dry.
i always add sugar and cinamon or brown sugar if theres no reg sugar when i cook oat meal.

Here is a study that I posted in a recent thread, and I have yet to see any actual studies showing sucralose to be detrimental to overall health.

Repeated dose study of sucralose tolerance in human subjects.

Baird IM, Shephard NW, Merritt RJ, Hildick-Smith G.

Pine Court, Fairbourne, Cobham, Surrey KT11 2BT, UK.

Two tolerance studies were conducted in healthy human adult volunteers. The first study was an ascending dose study conducted in eight subjects, in which sucralose was administered at doses of 1, 2. 5, 5 and 10mg/kg at 48-hour intervals and followed by daily dosing at 2mg/kg for 3 days and 5mg/kg for 4 days. In the second study, subjects consumed either sucralose (n=77) or fructose (50g/day) (n=31) twice daily in single blind fashion. Sucralose dosage levels were 125mg/day for weeks 1-3, 250mg/day during weeks 4-7, and 500mg/day during weeks 8-12. No adverse experiences or clinically detectable effects were attributable to sucralose in either study. Similarly, haematology, serum biochemistry, urinalysis and EKG tracings were unaffected by sucralose administration. In the 13-week study, serial slit lamp ophthalmologic examination performed in a random subset of the study groups revealed no changes. Fasting and 2-hour post-dosing blood sucralose concentrations obtained daily during week 12 of the study revealed no rising trend for blood sucralose. Sucralose was well tolerated by human volunteers in single doses up to 10mg/kg/day and repeated doses increasing to 5mg/kg/day for 13 weeks. Based on these studies and the extensive animal safety database, there is no indication that adverse effects on human health would occur from frequent or long-term exposure to sucralose at the maximum anticipated levels of intake.

I usually go with PB and splenda in mine. Love it!

If it works for you great because Splenda in a recipe is the same ratio as sugar. ..BUT some people have a terrible time with this product in their system and get very ill. Start with a single pac. and see if you have any intestinal problems over a day or two before using it again

Usually people experience gastrointestinal problems when consuming large amounts of substances such as sucralose, sugar alcohols, etc., as found in some low carb foods. I doubt you are going to see any intestinal problems from a couple of packs of Splenda.
