So ive been on the 5-1 now for close to 10 months and it's been great and ive lost over 130 pounds. one of the foods I loved before going on medifast was oatmeal and in those 10 months I have yet to order the oatmeal but lately ive been really craving oatmeal and with the fall season approaching I feel like I need a warm meal to start my day. but so far the only thing I heard about the oatmeal is that it's terrible. I want to have it just as oatmeal and not as a muffin or anything like that. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to make it. thanks for your help..

Im in maintenance, and I still buy it! I like the Blueberry and the Peach. I make them kind of "soupy"..

I say order 1 packet of a few flavors you like. To order 1 packet is $1.99. Then if you dont like it, your not sitting on extra packets. Although, you can make muffins out the extras...

And AWESOME JOB on losing so much so fast! Your doing fantastic!!!..

I eat the oatmeal everyday and just as the directions dictate. I LOVE the oatmeal......I loved oatmeal before Medifast and I eat it everyday now. All of the flavors are good. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Let me know..........

I love the oatmeal and eat it every morning. The directions say to add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water. I do the 3/4. I mix it at night in a ceramic bowl and leave it in the refrigerator covered until morning. Then I stir it up, add a dash of cinnamon (to every flavor) and microwave it for 1:30. I let it sit for about 2 minutes, stir it up, add a tablespoon of Walden Farms SF syrup (blueberry to the blueberry or peach, pancake to the maple & brown sugar) and eat it. If I'm running late and have to eat it in the car, I add even more water and put it in a coffee mug and drink it...

I'm in the "love the oatmeal" category too... I guess it's not for everyone, but I really like it..

Comment #4

I like all of the oatmeals (started 10/1) right out of the box. I was never a huge oatmeal fan, but I now eat one a day (peach is my favorite)...

Comment #5

I love the oatmeal, I make it with 1/2 cup cold water, stir, and nuke for 1minute, stir and eat. Yum!..

Comment #6

I like the oatmeal! I heat up the water in the microwave, then add it to the oatmeal instead of microwaving the actual oatmeal. =)..

Comment #7

I was nervous about the oatmeal too, but I love them all. My favorites are blueberry & peach. However, I do add a packet of splenda to my oatmeal...

Comment #8

I always liked oatmeal, and the Medifast oatmeal is great! Right now I'm stuck on the peach. If you normally like oatmeal, it will be a real treat for you!..

Comment #9

I think it is all in the way you prepare it. I did it by the directions on the back and it tasted rubbery, so I just tolerated it. Now, I pour in 3/4 to a cup of boiling water. stir. Let it sit for 10 -15 minutes. then nuke it for a minute.

Oh and I add one splenda packet to it. My favorite is peach...

Comment #10

I'm in week 1 and have only tried the peach so far, but it really wasn't bad! I liked it. It's not as sweet as regular instant oatmeal, but as others have said, you can add a splenda packet to it if you want. I don't microwave mine - I boil the water in the microwave and add it to the oatmeal...

Comment #11

I hated the oatmeal at first but after a week on plan I love it. I have it most mornings and it's one of the most filling Medifast foods...

Comment #12

I also like the oatmeal - it's been my traditional mid morning meal every weekday since starting Medifast. I make it soupier or thicker depending on my mood, and I've found it to be one of the more satisfying Medifast meals. You're right that it gets a lot of hate though, so no oatmeal warranties are expressed on implied by this post...

Yesterday I had the oatmeal for the first time and I LOVED it. I'm an oatmeal fan to begin with so that may be why. I was really worried about having it because of what I read here on the boards. I was craving it so I just had to have it. I cooked it with 1/2 cup of water for 1.5 minutes in the microwave. I added a packet of splenda.

I had the apple cinnamon...

Comment #14

I've had two flavors of oatmeal, Maple & Brown Sugar (which I really like), and the Apple Cinnamon (which I can only eat with a teaspoon of pb). I'm going to try the blueberry next. I've always been a fan of oatmeal (my absolute favorite being Quaker Oats Raisins & Spice which I won't eat again due to the sugar content). I'm really glad I started doing Medifast in the fall because I always like something hot to start my day (though I don't mind the cold shakes either). My tastes have definitely changed, I don't add any kind of sweetener to the oatmeal, drink my tea without milk or sweetener (I found a Plantation Mint Green tea that I love), and have had no cravings for anything. I can't believe I've gone almost a month without eating bread! I'm so glad I chose MF, and I am just taking one day at a time. It took me years to get to this weight, so if it takes me months to get it off, I think that's a good trade off...

Like the oatmeal, I add 1 tsp of real vanilla extract to mine and a little nutmeg. I microwave for 45 seconds and add more water than it calls for...

Comment #16

I love it too, the hotter the better. It is more filling that most Medifast meals. I add an entire cup of cold water and stiir it well, put it in a large bown and micro for a minute and a half, then let it sit for a couple minutes so the solids get congealed on the bottom and the liquid stays on top, which I pretend is milk.

Can I tell a funny story about the oatmeal without people thinking I am dissing the food (which I actually enjoy quite a bit.).

We were driving back from a weekend getaway with our 20 year old daughter in the back seat. She is very sensitive to smells and can usually identify most ingredients in anything just through her nose (too bad she can't turn that talent into cash.) Anyway, just after I open a thermos of hot oatmeal she pipes up, "Ewww...we must be going by a dog food factory, can't you smell it?" So her dad, thinking it's ohsofunny, "No, honey, that's your mother's new Alpo diet! Har har har!".

Hey, it was pretty funny, and I vigorously defended my oatmeal by telling them it only smelled like that from a distance. So there. But now when my daughter calls home she asks me how I'm doing on my alpo diet. Its all in fun, luckily everyone in my family is fully supportive...

I've loved oatmeal (malt-o-meal, cream of wheat, etc) before MF. I had no hesitation on buying it from the start. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it was mushy. I like my oatmeal to have a little texture to it. However, I found that if I used some splenda and a little half and half, it was quite tasty. I don't drink coffee so using the half and half as one of my allowed condiments is OK with me.

Starting my day with a bowl of oatmeal is a pleasant experience...

Love, love, love the oatmeal!!! I also add more water than they suggest (about a cup), and once it's done cooking in the microwave I cover with plastic wrap and let it sit until it thickens up. Then I reheat it so it's piping hot. I don't add anythng to it - love it just like it is! I haven't tried the peach, but I like the two flavors that come with the variety shipment, and I tried the blueberry once and thought it was good too..

I see so many posts about how awful the oatmeal is, and I totally can't relate. Everyone's taste is different, though..

I hope you end up liking it! It's a very satisfying meal; leaves me feeling warm and fuzzy inside.


Comment #19

I've also liked oatmeal forever, so the leap to Medifast oatmeal wasn't too bad. I didn't love it at first, but now add cinnamon to just about all of them. By far my favorite is peach. I don't add anything and pretty much make it according to direction. I'd love to try the muffins, though!..

Comment #20

Yes,I microwave mine and make it a little soupier, like gruel, I guess. I find most of the Medifast foods too sweet for me anyway, so adding extra H20 always helps. I received the peach. I think the part that was hardest for me was that the taste is so much like a perfume, or roomfreshener, or a scented candle, that I had to let myself get over that hump..

I definitely like the idea of making it extra soupy and drinking it. Great tip...

Comment #21

Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one who loves the oatmeal!.

I was also a previous oatmeal lover, bet even then I didn't like it sweet-I used to have regular flavor with raisins, walnuts and a little cinnamon..

Now the only thing I do is let it sit for a while so it plumps up, and I add about a teaspoon of flaxseed meal before I cook it. That helps the texture and it's super nutritious!.

Oatmeal lover power!!!!!..

Comment #22

I love the oatmeal! I ate it in maintenance. I eat it like oatmeal, I eat it cold, like a cookie dough. I love the maple, the peach and the blueberry- love it all..
