How Many Weight Watchers Points Is Oatmeal
Dieting has so many fads: weight watchers, no carbs, etc. What is actually working or the healthiest? And do european body wraps actually work?

Between 2 cups coffee and oatmeal I can consume around 3 cups of milk daily. Is that considered too much milk for me? I don't mind it. Healthy weight
No, that's not: too much. Not drinking any milk is where many young women get into a little nutritional jeopardy because milk is such a good source of calcium. The only concern would be the fat content of 3 cups of milk. There is 2.4 grams of fat (1.5 grams of saturated fat) in a cup of milk; 7% of the recommended daily amount. So 3 cups would be 21% of daily recs. If you can drink 1 or 2%, much better. Stay well ...Read more

Maybe not: Oats and oatmeal are listed as a gluten-containing grain. More recent reports say that oats don't have the gluten proteins but have small amounts of another protein that may cause reactions in some celiac disease patients. Sometimes the same equipment that processes oats also processes wheat, so there can be traces of gluten from the wheat getting into the oats. So, "pure" oats probably are ok. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
