my oatmeal diet didnt work so i decided to do it with excercise i started working out in the gym today i plan 2 hours a day. then oatmeal every meal as my carb. and im feeling very weak at the moment. its in the middle of the day and i think im gonna be sick. im taking vitamins though. a-zinc and fish oil supplement. im not sure if im eating enough thats probbably why im dizzy and i didnt get enough sleep last night
Oatmeal helps...Exercise most definitely helps...I guess, vitamins and zinc-fish oil supplement may help, too...But, I think it would be most important to learnand understand why anything helps before owning it because once you gain that knowledge, you can learn to love it. Dedicated and committed people may appear to be "robots" but, actually, they just love and believe in what they're doing.
I thought you were just eating oatmeal only! My bad.
As a vitamin-taker myself, I know that vitamins provide extra nutrients just in case we're not getting enough from food, sort of like an "insurance" policy; VITAMINS DO NOT provide energy.
Only food provides energy, so to prevent your dizziness, eat a varied diet of complex carbohydrates, not just oatmeal and some veggies. Add brown rice, quinoa, potatoes or sweet potatoes, green veggies, fruits like apples and bananas, beans, etc, to your daily diet for optimal strength and energy.
yup my trainer tells me to eat small meal every 3 hours food consisting protein carbs and fiber. but its hard to find time at work. so i end eating 3 small meals a day the when i wake up i engage with a heavy workout for 1 and a half hours.
Hi kaykillen! the reason that your oatmeal diet didn't work so well is because oatmeal is thick and heavy and takes time for your body to break it down. you've already started eating again by the time your body's broken down the oatmeal so things are backing up on you. you're designed with everything you need to rip weight faster than any supplement can. trust me...i'm doing it. have a glorious, logical day!
no sir im not entirely serious. i was thinking hes not serious with what he tells me because what I know all my life oatmeal is high in fiber and body cannot absorb fiber so body will eliminate. and telling me that im designed already to rip weight. its like hes saying that im really into taking diet pills.

Secondly, you're right, kaykillen. Oatmeal is high in fiber and the body won't absorb it (the fiber) so it will be eliminated...
But, oatmeal is a "whole grain" (a complex carbohydrate) and studies show that eating whole grains such as oatmeal, brown rice and quinoa play an important role in lowering the risk of chronic diseases, such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, and also contribute to body weight management and gastrointestinal health.
With that said, isn't it possible that logicalremedies was trying to give you helpful advice and you just misunderstood (Also, how do you know logicalremedies is a he and not a she?)?
The point I'm trying to make is simple: Unless you're absolutely understanding and there's no margin of error, it can be a mistake to use that phrase "wtf?". When unsure, sometimes it's better just to say, "thanks", instead. Like seriously...
I didn't get anything negative from logicalremedies response.
logicalremedies said, "you're designed with everything you need to rip weight faster than any supplement can" regarding VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS, which is what you had mentioned; nowhere in the response did logical mention diet pills! logical's opinion is that you don't really need vitamins, your body is naturally designed for weight loss...and added an encouraging, "trust me...i'm doing it."
Also, if you read other posts by logical, he/she ends EACH post with that catchphrase; it's in no way intended to be condescending at all!
More and more misunderstandings are happening in this day and age because more people are communicating via the internet and cannot gauge people's true emotions or intentions through writing! So always clarify, clarify, clarify! And if you have something important to tell a loved one...CALL them or meet face to face!
