After all the convincing I am getting 50 grams of carbs through oatmeal post-workout with my protein shake.
How about pre-workout? Is it a good source of carbs. for before too?

oatmeal is always a very good source of carbohydrates. but if you don't want to be choking down bowl after bowl, maybe preworkout you can do a bunch of fibrous vegetables, but not to many, don't want to poop your pants at the squat rack.
I used to have that problem(well almost), when I would drink my protein shake with milk before workout.
I would have gas during the whole workout.
Now I mix with water.

That's more gung-ho than me Meathead.
Your stats are kinda ironic compared to mine. You are 6'1" and at 9% bodyfat looking to bulk to 214 pounds.
I am 6'3" 217 pounds and looking to cut to around 10-12% bodyfat and maybe 200-210 pounds. I am not sure where I stand right now, but I am guessing 15-17% bodyfat.
I cannot imagine weighing 170 pounds. Damn. That was my high school weight. Right now at 217 I feel pretty damn puny. But, those friggin' love handles have to come off!
Right now I am doing 50g of oatmeal with 23g of protein/water 1/2 hour prior and 50g of oatmeal 46g of protein/water post.
So, it looks as if I am pretty much on the right track.
