Why someone may have said this to you is that the phytic acid binds with minerals making your body unable to absorb them, so if for example you were eating this with milk and you needed calcium, oats might then hurt your cause then leading to weak... (more)

I haven't eaten oats in a while but I think it could be to do with oats having relatively more fibre and being prone to expanding once they've been eaten. However I can't be sure at this moment. In what sort of preparations do you eat them? Have... (more)

To start, there is no such thing as white wild rice. Even though it is called rice, wild rice is actually a seed. It is called rice because it is used culinarily like rice and with rice. I don't know about brands, but if you are looking for a... (more)

Are oats considered a food high in polyunsaturated omega 6 fatty acids?

Matt_18 0 · August 26, 2012 at 8:45 PM

2.3g of polyunsaturated fat per 100g of dry oats, 2.2g of which are o-6. The ratio heavily favors o-6 but the overall fat content is negligible.

Ditching the metric ton of carbohydrate you were eating (reading your other question) means you are going to adjust your glycogen/water weight. After that, it's all a matter of calories to maintain weight, if you under-eat, you'll lose weight. (more)
