Sounds good overall but advise more protein at breakfast- add walnuts/pecans to oatmeal or have organic eggs sometimes. Advise organic chicken- if not, it's fed GMO feed which may prove hazardous-see http://www.psrast.org/ Advise wild salmon as farmed has more toxins. Have veggies of all colors & include salads.

Bowel habits are specific to an individual and should not be manipulated to meet some definition of 'normal'. It is a function of diet including fluids and activity level provided all else is equal. Sounds like you are trying to manipulate a prior manipulation. Just go back to your prior diet and activity level. Things should follow along.

Trap

For people with wheat allergy can we eat oatmeal?

Depends

Allergies
Many of the commonly available oat products are milled at the same facilities that mill wheat. If so, trace amounts of wheat can contaminate the oats and result in a sensitivity reaction. If you examine the consumer label of these products you may be able to find one that is milled on separate equipment and safe to consume.

Yes

Traditionally prepared oatmeal is very healthy food, not instant oatmeal. Take 10 to 15 min to prepare it, add slices of banana, blueberries & strawberries. Organic honey, a teaspoon of organic coconut oil with ground cinnamon can be added & it will make a perfect breakfast together with a cup of black coffee or tea without sugar. Yummy yummy!
