Add a cup of oatmeal to your protein shakes or meal replacement shakes. Even if you’re built like a pipe-cleaner… this one is a one-way ticket to adding pounds of muscle. Whether it’s the first thing in the morning, your after workout meal or between meal snack. Start with 40-60 grams of high-quality protein, add 20 grams of L Glutamine and one cup of oatmeal (there’s a warning at the end of this. PLEASE be sure to read it). Be certain to have solid food about an hour later. You already know how important protein is. Oatmeal has an ideal ratio of carbohydrates and protein. Oatmeal is a one of the best sources of complex carbohydrates. Your muscle will suck up Oatmeal’s nutrients and fill up with glycogen. It’s cheap delicious and a great source of fuel. I’ve seen guy’s add 5 to 10 pounds of muscle in just 2 to 4 weeks.
WARNING—use caution. If you’re using and “instant” oatmeal, give it 5 minutes after mixing the shake for the oatmeal to expand. I use a slow-cooking oatmeal and cook it ahead stored in the fridge. I know one 290 pound World class power-lifter who put 3 packets of instant oatmeal in his shake and drank it right down without waiting. The oatmeal expanded in his stomach—he was in agony all night!
