I have tried to stay away from as much insoluble fiber as possible but would like to add oatmeal to my diet.  Anyone have a problem with oatmeal and its fiber content.  There are 2 grams soluble and 2 grams insoluble.

      Yeah I know it has both, but I just thought you meant you wanted to stay away from insoluble , so was letting  you know it was in there in case you didn't know. Sorry didn't mean anything wrong. Hugs!

      Sorry if I sounded upset!  I just answer stuff in short sentences!    My concern is the insoluble fiber in oatmeal.  Just asking if anyone has had a problem with it.  My problems stem from popcorn, nuts, seeds, skins - all insoluble fiber.  But cooked oatmeal seems less fibrous if you know what I mean.  Take popcorn, it has a lot of hard pieces to digest but oatmeal seems kinder somehow.

    Oh okay,  I see what you was actually asking, for myself I never had a problem with oatmeal. I was wondering if anyone eats cream of wheat and if it's okay to eat with DD.

    I have proper rolled oats almost every day (not the processed sachets of dust) and have never had a problem - in fact it actually seems to regulate my bowel movements.  I do soak them overnight though.  I either mix 40gm with 150ml fat free yogurt and chopped fresh fruit, and have it cold, or I mix 30 gm with 150ml cold water, 1 level dessert spoon skimmed milk powder, and 1/3 teaspoon stevia (artificial sweetener) and have it hot with a dash of cinammon and chopped fresh fruit.  It's the cheapest form of oats and great for your cholesterol levels.

      Thanks for your input.  I have eaten the oatmeal two days in a row now and haven't had any issues, but I know it might take a day or two to hit the colon!  I also soaked it in water and then cooked for 5 minutes.  I also ground it up in a food processor just to see what that consistency would be like and it was OK.
