How much Oatmeal do you need

Most people should get 5 to 10 grams of soluble fiber a day. But most people only get 3 or 4 grams. So you should aim to double or triple your intake by consciously adding soluble fiber to foods.

There are 3 grams of soluble fiber in 1.5 cups of oatmeal, enough to lower your cholesterol, according to the American Dietetic Association. It may be a bit much for breakfast, so just add in oatmeal or bran to dishes at other times of the day.

Low-Cholesterol Diet Includes:

There's plenty of evidence that a oatmeal diet lowers cholesterol levels. It's such a well-accepted belief that the FDA gave it the status of a "health claim" in 1997. This allows manufacturers to advertise the heart-healthy benefits on boxes of oatmeal and other products.
