Is oatmeal safe?

7 posts in this topic

It's sort of high in carbs (9% per serving), but it contains no wheat ingredients and is low in fat and sugar. I would think this would be an ideal choice for breakfast, am I wrong?

Regular oats

cinammon

crushed walnut

assorted blueberriers and/or strawberries

splenda

milk

Try that. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be "safe"

or you can just try regular oats with a sugar substitute if you want to keep things simple


before you judge me take a look at you

can't you find something better to do

point the finger, slow to understand

arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand

I've wondered the same thing about oatmeal. I've been eating oatmeal too...but eliminated all other breads, pastas, cereal..etc.

How close to clear are you?


These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):

* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)

* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002

* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)

* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):

* Strengthen/Repair GI - Immune health

Research:

* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).

* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

If it is unrefined oatmeal it may be safe. People on these boards either eliminate one of the following:

Wheat

Gluten

Gluten+Oats

Most grains

All grains

Usually, if they eliminate most grains then they usually are consuming only one of the following:

Unrefined Oats

Brown Rice

Corn & Rice

Could handle that if it cleared you?

Well I just started to eliminate breads, coffee and soy. (I eliminated sugar awhile ago) So it is probably too soon to judge yet. But I haven't gotten any new ones today which is amazing! So I am thinking the oatmeal doesn't interfer...

I'm probably as clear as I have been in a long time, this is probably 5 weeks into my lower carb diet. But for the last 2 weeks or so I've been eating whatever I want, no limit to carbs or sugar (although I'm still avoiding caffeine), and at the end of August/early-September I'll know if my acne is affected by diet.
