    I saw a poster in my gym that noted that Old-fashioned oatmeal has a GI of 40, then noted that Instant Oatmeal has a GI of 65, or high GI. I looked at the macros, and noticed no difference.

    Also, I have recently bean to eat Instant Oatmeal w/ splenda, cinnamon and 1.5 scopps of ON whey after I work out. I work out first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, so this is my first meal as well as my PWO meal. Any issues w/ eating this after my workout?

    Thanks.

    So, you're worried about a gi of 65 as compared to 40. You worry too much.

    My deal w/ the oatmeal is I have heard not to have fiber w/ the PWO shake, as it will slow the digestion of the protein. As for not having any protein before the workout, it typically doesn't sit well w/ my stomach and I'm not ripped and thought that it was a more efficient calorie burner to work-out on the empty stomach.

    I should note that I'm 6', 250 lbs, about 25% bf.

    Instant oats are ground up / smaller bits which = faster digestion, which is why they have a higher GI rating than normal oats.

    I put the whey, cinnamon, splenda, salt, and water in a cup and use the hand blender. Makes for equal consistency. It is a bit watery, however, I typically microwave for about 3 mins.
