Oats for Cutting 24/7???
Really just an opinion from you guys. I am looking at using oats for my carb source all day(except for dex/malto PWO).
To me, it is not ideal because of more fat than other choices like yams/brwn rice.... but it is looking like it will be my main option.
Poor as hell right now and I have a ton of oats just sittin that I stocked up on before.
How far do you think it will set me back? Think I can still hit 6% BF from about 9%??
Thanks for any opinions

I'd try to get a little more variety other than just oats, but if thats what you have to do then so be it. Potato's and rice are cheap too. 4 or 5 bucks should get you both and last you all week.

I have started eating more sweet potatoes for PPWO on this cutting run, they taste so good i feel guilty eating one...i swear those things cant be good for you.. lol
I might try the Oats as they are easier to get the correct kCals figured than a sweet potatoe.
My calc for a large Sweet Potatoe is Cals 234 Fat 6 Carbs 43 Pro 3
At least thats how i have been calculating it through fitday.com

U obviously havent been eating sweet potatoes long enough if you think they taste good, I get to the point precontest where I just wanna throw anything orange out the window!!

I dont see why not. I prefer oats in the morings and preworkout if i do it, as well as ppwo with 2 chicken breasts.

Shit bro, after scarfing down brown rice the last year and a half...a sweet potatoe is one tasty mofo.

have you considered your micronutrient intake as a result of abstaining from fruit and veg for carb choices?

Same for me. I was just saying oats will be my source for morning AND PPWO whereas many people use brownrice/sweet pots instead.
thanks for the assist guys
