Eating too much Oatmeal or something else?

An_239578 posted:
Hi I've been having a problem lately where my stool has become very watery, foamy and light brown/yellowish in color. I have been eating oatmeal pretty much every day for about three years now in the morning for breakfast. I eat it because I have a physical job and it fills me up as well as seems to give me a good amount of energy until it is time for lunch. When the stool becomes like this it is usually later in the day and I usually have one bowel movement before that in the morning that is more normal. It also seems to happen more so if I didn't get much sleep the night before. Should I be worried about this? Is this something that is being caused by eating too much oatmeal? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

No; the oatmeal is not the cause of these changes in your stools.
