    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

    Jake

    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

    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.
