Okay. I will look that up.
And yeah, people are different.
How do you prepare that?
I buy 4KG of ultra fine oats from 'The Protein Works' but you can get them cheap and blend them if you want. I add 100 grams into a shaker bottle (that has a metal whisk ball), add enzymes, camu camu powder, flaxseed powder, collagen, plant proteins, natural yeast flakes etc, then I add 500 mls of water, but you could add milk. Then just shake it enough and drink. Easy.
I'm not familiar with the ingredients though. Ultra fine oats? Do normal oats work? Also, I have a question, I'm new to oats, but I was wondering whether they require cooking before consumption. Could I eat them raw only soaked in milk?
Ultra fine oats are whole oats that have already been blended into a very fine powder. If you use normal oats, you will need to blend them. This is done so you can add them to the shake without clumping.Oats can be eaten raw but the problem is they have an elements in them that can reduce your absorption of other nutrients (phytic acid). This is why I add enzymes to them (especially phytase).It's recommended to soak them in milk, or water before use https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/raw-oatsHowever, when they are ultra fine, and have enzymes added, this should be fine. But that depends on whether your stomach can handle it. I've been doing this for years and my health improved significantly.
www.livestrong.com/.../''More processed varieties of oats (like rolled oats and instant oats) have been pre-steamed and heated to destroy potentially harmful pathogens, making them safe to eat raw, according to the University of Wisconsin-Madison.''
Thanks for the info! :)
You're welcome. It's such an easy way to add bulk / lean muscle with training.
Well I do put priority to protein, but I'm just asking about how to eat more.

I don't keep track, but it's around 900 to a 1000 calories. But it's not consistent. My body weight is around 64-63kg.
How can you expect help with eating more calories when you don't have a clue how many you're eating now? There's no way you're eating 1000 calories a day and maintaining 64kg. Track your calories for a week and see what you're really eating. If you're trying to gain, 2200 should be your minimum.
I just told you it's around 900-1000 calories per day. I don't really keep track, because it's not consistent. "There's no way you're eating 1000 calories a day and maintaining 64kg." You say this as in I'm normally must be eating more calories?
It can't be that low. You'd be anorexic. Tracking calories is a pain in the ass, I get that. But if you're trying to add some size, it's a necessity until you get a better idea of your actual intake. The bare minimum for adding any real size is 16 times your body weight (in pounds, so 33 times kg weight). 20(44 in kg) times will put it on faster, and you would probably be better off with that much at first. You'll grow fast, and kinda "grow into" that diet. At 64kg, that's 2816cal. When you get to 85kg, the same amount of calories is 33x. As long as you're making good food choices you won't gain too much fat.Don't make the mistake of trying to eat too clean, though. You're not a fat guy trying to lose weight, so don't eat like it.
I totally see what you're saying. I could be wrong about the amount of calories I'm consuming, but on on average, could you give me an idea of what a 2816 cal diet would look like in terms or meals? Of course there's variety, but I'm just wondering if protein shakes are necessary for someone like me with relatively low appetite. I'm not s big fan of them.
Just google "2800 calorie meal plan". 'Eat this much' will pop up, and you can go to the link. You can pick how many calories and how many meals, and it'll generate a meal plan. Even if you don't use the plan, it'll give you a good idea of how much food that is.
