5 cups too much???

Is five cups (measured raw) of oatmeal a day ok to eat or should I vary my carb sources more?

    Depends on the rest of your diet. Not sure how much more food you're eating.

    It is a good idea to vary your sources though..

    and five actual cups sounds like a lot...but it does depend on your stats, goals, rest of diet, etc.

    A cup of oats is like 130g IIRC meaning you are getting over 600g of oats per day if you do that....

    ...thats a lot of oats!
