There's absolutely NO reason to eat oats at the rate of 25 net carbs of STARCH in oatmeal. I've never known a diabetic patient or client of mine that EVER would come close to burning off 25 net grams of STARCH. All it ever does is raise blood sugar and doesn't get into the KREBS cycle to burn starch for energy.
