I've been having 2 servings of oatmeal (along with 2 scoops of protein) for breakfast for quite some time now and I hear a lot of people talking about how it is one of the best carb sources but I have to ask
What makes it such a good carb source?
Is it absorbed quickly or slowly?
Does it cause a significant, short lived insulin spike or is it absorbed steadily over a long period of time?
When is the best time to take it (morning, PWO, pre workout...)?
