That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
That was one of the meals I was allowed. only my pouch didn.t like it ...
I'm about to try oatmeal this weekend, I.
My pouch likes it, I know I do well with cream of wheat with sugar free syrup, so hoping to get good results...I'll let you know what I think, and how I did. I'm 3 1/2 weeks out..btw...
My surgeon allowed oatmeal from day one. It is one of the highlights of my day....liquids, liquids, liquids, oatmeal, and mashed potatoes. Of course I don't eat sweet oatmeal so that may be differentI like it savory (a little butter and salt) yummers! it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling...who ever thought oatmeal would be such a big deal?!..
I miss unflavored protein powder into cold milk and add this to my oatmeal after it is cooked. Always look for ways to booste that protein!!!..
I have never had trouble with oatmeal but in the beginning recommend making it a little soupier than you might normally just so it's easier to eat. As you progress can thicken it up a little. The low sugar one is better than the weight control one in regards to sugar and carbs. Carbs is the big thing to watch in the beginning. Not sure I'd do it everyday but it's a good alternative..
I eat a small bowl of oatmeal every now and then. I learned the hard way not to eat too much. normally I just do 1/2 cup of it with sugar free maple syrup...
I like the instant Irish oatmeal but my pouch doesn't. It was on my recommended list of foods, too. If I could eat it, I would mix.
And a tablespoon of dark agave nectar in it. yummy...
I love oatmeal.......it's something that I finally found I can eat for breakfast..
I found a SF Apples N.
One.......it's actually store brand and really good. I also use the low sugar plain with a bit of splenda and milk..
The open faced ham and cheese muffin sounds good, but bread isn't a friend to me, pouch doesn't like it. A good thing I guess...
I was just wondering if anyone has had an issue with eating oatmeal. I was told by someone who had the.
But I am.
Out of breakfast ideas amd just wanted feedback..
Thank you all so much for your responses. I will try it. I haven't really had any problems with any Medifast food so far and I am 6 weeks out this week. Hopefully I won't have any issues..
I didn't eat it because not enought protein in it..
I've added a half scoop of protein powder (unflavored or vanilla) to my packet of sugar free oatmeal and it works great.. just dont make it too thick. The unflavored Unjury protein powder also mixes well in instant mashed potatoes.. and I've also mixed it into the little packets of gravy mix to go on the potatoes.. it goes down well..and has lots of protein!.
The oatmeal I eat is active lifestyle weight control it have 1 g of sugar and 7 grams of protein. It is very yummy..
I am almost 6 weeks out and loving the oatmeal, it is so quick and easy for me to make, also getting sick of yogurt for breakfast every morning. I have been adding soft fruits, like berries on the side to get up my fruit intake. I do try to use the low sugar packs...
I am allowed to eat oatmeal and there are times when I love it. Especially on cold mornings when I want something to warm me up for breakfast...
I have 1/2 cup of oatmeal every morning with 1 turkey sausage. Hopefully, that's okay. I have oatmeal every morning. However, I didn't start having oatmeal until I was approximately 3 months post op...
I mix up to a half package of the low sugar oatmeal, raw, into my low fat.
Everyday. I crave it, I like it so much. I've had trouble with sweets. I try not to add the powder part trying to keep that to the bottom of the packet. What stays mixed in the oatmeal adds flaover. You would be surprised, it tastes the same as if you cooked it...
I use the quick oats, not instantThey aren't as processed, so I assume (though haven't checked) it would be better fiber. I add protein powder to it and sometimes some raisins and splenda. It's good. I don't do it everyday, but since I tolerate it well and add the protein I think it's a good choice for me...
