why do i keep having cravings for oatmeal?


Quote  |  Reply

ok i guess i really love oatmeal, because now i want it all the time {but i dont eat it all the time lol)

but when i make it i use like 1/2 cup dry oats, 1 cup water, a pinch of salt in the water, a tsp of brown sugar, and lots of cinnamon and stuff...but i keep craving it! and because its not that sweet it doesnt even taste THAT good.

but my dad used to make it with apple chips and cinnamon, and he always put enough sugar in it and maybe thats what im craving...but i cant have it! its driving me crazy! what to do? why do i want oatmeal?

Probably because you're not eating enough to begin with and your body is trying to remedy that by getting you to eat something.

maybe it is a comfort food for you, like for me if i make my mom's homemade mac and cheese...i love it because it really brings me back to when i was a kid...but do love oatmeal and for me i think i crave it for the warm factor as well as the whole grain thing like eating a bread

Lock this post!

14 yr old girls of a perfectly normal weight panicking about the calorie price of oatmeal on her 900 calorie budget, shouldn't be allowed to post. Get help for your fears about eating! Not eating at least the 1200 min is screwing up your metabolism in the long run. By the time your done starving yourself your body will just start instantly fat packaging every possible calorie because it knows you're not eating!

This is a forum, not a internet diary! Just like all the other posts made by this person, there is no actual question stated; poster needs to learn how to use diary function!

Your mind may be craving oatmeal, but your body is craving food.  You are starving your body, and it is asking, pleading, begging to be nourished.  You keep having cravings for food because you aren't eating enough of it.

You need to eat sister...did you know that starving yourself makes you age faster? It can also cut you out from being able to have kids. As well as a billion other things too... so, decide for yourself. Eat the daggum oatmeal.

Eat the oatmeal and shut up about it.
