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?

    "Oats in a shake" ...explain please.

    I've been doing a lot of reading here today and one thing a lot of people seem to have in common is the mention of "putting oats in a shake."

    I am interested in doing this for two reasons:
    1) It sounds really quick and simple
    2) I hate oatmeal

    So when you guys say you put oats in a shake, are you literally putting plain dry raw oats into a shaker bottle, adding some whey, adding water, shaking, and then drinking?

    You don't need to use a blender? You don't cook the oats first? Just throw them in raw, add whey and water and drink?

    Do I have this understood correctly?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, that's what I was wondering.

    But when you say you blend them, they are still raw, right? At no point in creating an oat/whey shake do you actually cook the oats, correct?

    Correct, in that they are raw when you blend them.

    Ok cool, so let me see if I understand it all...

    - I put 1-2 scoops of whey in the blender.
    - I put 1-2 servings of dry/raw oats (such as these) in the blender.
    - I put a lot of water in the blender.
    - I turn the blender on.
    - I turn the blender off.
    - I drink what is inside the blender.

    Rinse, repeat.

    Put what you want in your shake man, dont have to use milk, but it will taste better. Just make sure you know what your putting in your shake and keep track of it. Dont be scared to experiment though, feel free to add w/e at anytime.

    If you do it this way you're going to have a shake with huge oat chunks in it that will all settle in the bottom, and it won't be easy to drink. Grind the oats first.

    Or you could just pour the whole oats into a shaker and git er done..

    You guys must have oodles of free time to be grinding and pureeing everything before you blend it. Sheesh!

    I kind of like chewing each mouthful of shake.

    All I know is, like Stumpy said you better use milk, cause when I try water it's a much longer shake to drink
