Though I'm one for variety, i'm with everyone else. If you track your nutrition and are fine in all the major categories (carbs, fats, protiens, fiber) then it really doesn't matter what specific foods you eat to get there.
I love oatmeal too... but not THAT much, hehehehe. ;-)

Once I gained a lot of weight from eating a ton of cream of rice with brown sugar. Granted, oatmeal without sugar is a lot healthier than that, but still... too much of one thing can be bad.
Oatmeal is a healthy form of carbohydrates, but why not have just one serving a day? Maybe you could eat more fruits or veggies.
FWIW, though, it does have protein. about 6 grams per serving.
Or you could make a "dinner" oatmeal with grated part-skim cheese, black pepper, fresh herbs and cooked veggies in it.

Track your calories and stay w/ in your calorie range. But remember you need your veggies, fruits and protein as well. I did see a low calorie oatmeal cookie recipe on here recently.

I gained weight in a oatmeal diet. I had plain old fashion oatmeal with silk unsweetened Almond milk .

oatmeal is a great!
Just make sure that you are hitting all of your ranges for carbs, protein and fat
How I adore you! But is having three servings of oatmeal a little to much? I've been eating three servings of oatmeal everyday, i can't seem to get enough of this stuff! Its pretty crazy, i eat it plain with unsweetened almond milk, nothing in it most of the time and when i do, i just add fruit. But anyways, i want to make sure that Oatmeal (of all things, i know) doesnt hinder losing weight. Even though it fits perfectly into my calorie range. Dumb and silly question, i know, but doesn't hurt to ask! Someone might know something about oatmeal i don't. Thanks!
