The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Making plain oatmeal taste great

    Try mixing canned fruit into your oatmeal while it's still hot, then I put it in the fridge for about an hour. Take it out of the fridge and pour low calorie syrup or jam over it. Then eat it.

    There's nothing better than cold oatmeal.

    I just cut up a peach/apple into it and add jam/preserves.

    But thats during a re-feed, if i'm dieting and eating oatmeal it will be different, i'll just add some cinnamon and drink the oatmeal down with water. One spoon oatmeal, i sip water, swallow, repeat.

    I have tried cottage cheese in oatmeal which wasn't too bad. Adding a tablespoon of natty PB also tastes pretty good.

    You don't even cook it?

    What if you just put uncooked oatmeal into a protien shake and chug it. Would it still digest the same as cooked oatmeal?

    goes into my protein shake every morning! It digests just fine. I either blend it up or just pour it in if I want it a little chewy.

    But the best is mixing some natty pb and a little artificial sugar in there. YUMMY!

    I buy my oats pre-mixed with fruit in it. Anything from blue berry, strawberry, raisin, peaches (the best) and plain. It's cheap too, since I get the store brand.

    I rarely cook my oats when i eat them. It just takes too much time, and i'm impatient.

    In general, uncooked food takes a little longer to digest, but you can still put it into your protein. I think there's an MRP around that does that with diced up oats.

    I used to eat that stuff, but I stopped. Doesn't 1 packet have like 12-17 grams of sugar?

    Sugar is bad for Rtzy, except for this weekend. I'm going to have some candy corns. They are so cute! and yummy too. Ya anywayz...

    I eat my oatmeal raw too. I hate cooked oatmeal ugh aghh eeek.

    i have found the best thing for oatmeal: spiced apple butter and 2 packs of splenda!
    Forget the six-pack for now and get BIG!

    A hint of cinammon and a touch of honey works for me.
