We all know that oatmeal is a very tasty and healthy porridge, especially if you eat it for breakfast. But according to experts, it should not be eaten every day, especially in summer.

The FoodOboz editorial team will tell you why, according to experts, you shouldn't eat oatmeal every day and how it can harm your body.

Eating oatmeal every day can cause problems:

1. Overweight

Oatmeal with dried fruit

Because oatmeal is very nutritious and satisfying; as a rule, it is eaten with something - fruit, honey, nuts, bananas. This makes it quite high in calories - 100 grams of the product contains 350 kilocalories.

2. Causes bone problems

Date acid can cause bone problems

Oatmeal, like any other cereal, contains phytic acid. It leaches calcium from bone tissue. Despite the fact that calcium is present in the cereal itself, the acid prevents the body from absorbing it. Phytic acid can be especially harmful to children whose bones are not yet fully formed and to the elderly.

3. Harms digestion and can cause allergies

Digestive problems may occur

Oatmeal contains a lot of gluten, which glues the intestinal villi together, thereby impairing digestion and preventing the absorption of nutrients.

Also, many people may be gluten intolerant, which can trigger a terrible allergic reaction.
