Oatmeal Troubles


#1

This is not a I hate oatmeal thread, infact I can not get enough of oatmeal I eat it everyday. However I was wondering if it can cause constipation. Oats is the only grain I eat and I can not find what causes it. I figured that all the fiber should be helping but who knows.


#2

How much water and fat are taking in?

Oatmeal should not constipate you.


#3

Should do the opposite. Lot's of fiber in it.


#4

He might have a wheat gluten allergy.


#5

if you eat it every day you might have developed a food allergy. have you been eating it daily for years?


#6

My water intake is pretty high. My fat intake not so much A few tbsp of olive oil a day maybe some almonds.

I eat oatmeal every day most of the time more than once a day and I have for many years. I also take metamucil.
