I usually use whey isolate and several scoops of gatorade for my postworkout shake. I'm thinking about adding maltodextrine, but I see quite a few threads where people use ground oatmeal instead. What make oatmeal better? I thought the purpose was to get some fast absorbing carbs and protein in the body and also to peak your insulin level so the protein would be absorbed more completely. Am I completely wrong on that?
I'm also curious if everyone thinks whey isolate is superior to blends for postworkout shake uses. It seems if we're slowing the absorbtion using oatmeal and/or milk that the blend would serve the same purpose, but be significantly cheaper.
