I sware, this stuff looks like gold (7g of fiber, 15 grams of protein, low cals...), but everytime I have eaten it I have goten the runs. What's up with that? I was going to start using it as post-work-out carbs with creatine and nitrean, but I do not get why I get the runs from this product. At first, I thought maybe it was because I was just putting in boiling water (not cooking it), but I started cooking it as well (when I read the instructions) and that did nothing. Anyone else try this?

if it gives you the runs then stop using it,honestly i've never heard of the product.

Yeah, I am going to stop using it. I was just wondering if it had something to do with the preparation. I've eaten it about 5 times in the past month, so really not that often. I thought the first few times were coincidental, but eh. :confused:

just buy plain ol' oats, i'm sure it's cheaper then GoLean.

I've never been able to stomach oats. What's the best way to get over this?

I have like a tub of natural Quaker oats and I just can't seem to be able to eat them. I try to eat them like oatmeal. I bet if I mixed them around with some peanut butter or something else I could get them down. Maybe in a shake? I've never had a shake before though.

For some reason I remember that stuff being high in fibre - could be the problem right there.

grind them well before you put them in your shake.

I've got a box of golean oatmeal and it tastes like bird crap (yes I do know what that tastes like). I got it at Ocean state job lot. I haven't had the runs yet from it

15g of protein in oatmeal makes me think its some kinda soy protein that isnt' agreeing with you.
