I went to Costco one day and bought a family pack of it. I felt great after I ate a bunch of it, over then ext couple of days I couldn't think of anything but eating oatmeal. I was at work thinking of eating oatmeal, I was on the computer thinking of eating oatmeal, I was dreaming about eating oatmeal. I will eat something else tomorrow, but I wanted to see how long I could eat it after that intense desire to put oatmeal inside my body.
boner_fide451 karma2013-01-14 05:35:08 UTC
Sounds like Arnold Schwarzenegger in POMPING IRON. I feel like I am cumming all day. In the morning I am cumming, at lunch I am cumming, in my oatmeal I am cumming. I am cumming all the time in my cinnamon oatmeal. The consistency is reaally amazing. Wanna bite?
dan42183305 karma2013-01-14 05:43:42 UTC
Maybe this was all a reaction to some latent-homosexual desire I have to put hot creamy things in my mouth? I dunno, maybe it's just because oatmeal is as good as, or better than, most sex I have had in my life.
Emprise32176 karma2013-01-14 06:29:18 UTC
You have bad sex dude.
EDIT: I read the whole thread and realized that OP is just trolling us. No way he can actually believe oatmeal is better than sex.
dan42183148 karma2013-01-14 06:47:52 UTC
I said most sex.
bahgelovich4 karma2013-01-14 06:33:15 UTC
I just woke up the entire house, thank you so much
dan421834 karma2013-01-14 06:48:13 UTC
dan4218332 karma2013-01-14 04:01:56 UTC
Also lemme find some pics I actually took one right before I started this, then I can take one now.
Masamune_X677 karma2013-01-14 05:32:24 UTC
Ah, the rare batshit crazy AMA.
dan42183928 karma2013-01-14 05:47:40 UTC
I know, there are some crazy people asking questions.
CardMoth47 karma2013-01-14 06:04:34 UTC
It's not that far fetched.
dan42183116 karma2013-01-14 06:12:16 UTC
What exactly does CardMoth mean?
iplayedbassforthem84 karma2013-01-14 06:21:57 UTC
No fucking seriously what does cardmoth mean dont you fucking dare die until you tell us.
dan4218379 karma2013-01-14 06:30:54 UTC
CardMoth reminds me of something that would have been in my grandparent's closet.
dan42183359 karma2013-01-14 06:28:37 UTC
Roughly 90 minutes until 100 days. Time enough for one more bowl of Oatmeal.
Then it's off to Woodstocks Pizza.
dan4218327 karma2013-01-14 07:13:22 UTC
Woodstocks near the Vons near SDSU.
Mr24601318 karma2013-01-14 05:54:41 UTC
This is one of my favorite AMAs ever. OP is hilarious.
dan42183300 karma2013-01-14 06:02:35 UTC
Thank you, not a question, but an admirable comment.
hotre_editor183 karma2013-01-14 04:06:50 UTC
how are your poops?
dan42183420 karma2013-01-14 04:13:50 UTC
My poops have been vigorous, they smell very bad, but they have given me lots of pleasure over the holiday season. Pics coming now, uploading them currently.
dave138h48 karma2013-01-14 04:20:44 UTC
You're uploading pics...of your poop? Why?
dan42183115 karma2013-01-14 04:30:44 UTC
I could upload a pic of my first poop after I eat real food again.

This was one of my favorite web sites when I still used AOL dial-up.
Kyacky172 karma2013-01-14 05:22:50 UTC
That must have been the cheapest 100 days of food possible.
dan42183309 karma2013-01-14 05:34:15 UTC
Definitely light on the budget. You can get 80 servings at Costco in CA for $6.
DanifC171 karma2013-01-14 06:20:49 UTC
After reading this thread I have confirmed that oatmeal makes you freaking hilarious.
dan42183140 karma2013-01-14 06:39:44 UTC
Thank you, I appreciate the support.
ExchangeTradedFungus157 karma2013-01-14 05:08:46 UTC
Were you ever tempted to sneak in a non-oatmeal snack? How did you keep sinful non-oatmeal urges at bay?

Cawdor131 karma2013-01-14 05:54:30 UTC
Now we know how you lost the 12 lbs
dan42183259 karma2013-01-14 06:00:35 UTC
Or at least the last 11.
supermav27147 karma2013-01-14 04:53:39 UTC
You must've really devOATed your lifestyle to eating oatmeal. That sounds MEALly hard to do.
dan42183209 karma2013-01-14 04:55:33 UTC
It seemed like an OATragious idea for the first few days, but after I got into the swing of things it just became inGRAINed in my routine.
supermav2760 karma2013-01-14 05:09:30 UTC
You must be craving lot's of other foods. But I bet it was worth the WHEATing time of 100 days.
dan4218394 karma2013-01-14 05:14:36 UTC
We'll just have to be really FLAX about what we let fly in this threat because Oatmeal is not Wheat.
packos13082 karma2013-01-14 05:18:44 UTC
Really, guys? Puns? You're gonna make me mad enough to become a cereal killer.

Can you poop?
dan42183488 karma2013-01-14 05:36:06 UTC
I actually pooped in my pants twice after about 2 weeks of the diet, I ruined my chili pepper pajamas and my Big Dog shorts, both irreplacable, but it was worth it overall.
dan42183254 karma2013-01-14 05:36:17 UTC
Once I was alseep though.
HasFuckedYourMom208 karma2013-01-14 06:03:21 UTC
Fuck. Not the Big Dogs.
Thank you to whoever gave me reddit gold! Never expected to get it while talking about Big Dog and shitting your pants but hey, whatever.
dan42183128 karma2013-01-14 06:07:33 UTC
I know, if there was one item of clothing I never planned on throwing out it was my last pair of Big Dogs. People on Reddit try to act like they've loved some piece of crap that looks good in a picture all their lives and they submit it like it's art. I truely loved my Big Dogs and I know how jelly they made everyone. Give me a pair of double mesh Big Dog shorts over skinny jeans any day of the week.
noyoureadumpster139 karma2013-01-14 05:40:10 UTC

dan42183131 karma2013-01-14 05:49:03 UTC
That's more of a comment than a question, but I appreciate it all the same.

dan42183591 karma2013-01-14 06:22:41 UTC
I find this profoundly strange.
total_sound115 karma2013-01-14 04:07:27 UTC
Do you eat it plain (with water) or do you add salt, milk, brown sugar, or cinnamon?
dan42183244 karma2013-01-14 04:20:45 UTC
I eat it with soy milk and nothing else, I looked up if I could do it with only water or only milk and it was suggested that I may develop scurvy, so I used soy milk which has vitamin C in it.
Lexpar106 karma2013-01-14 06:18:20 UTC
Yeah getting scurvy would be a real concern, wouldn't it?
dan42183225 karma2013-01-14 06:32:25 UTC
Yeah I dunno why but scurvy has been a going concern for me throughout my life. when I was a kid my Dad would make jokes about people getting scurvy and it sank in real deep. Now every once in a while I notice I haven't had any vitamin C in a while and I run out and eat an orange. This has been quite a test for me and my scurvy phobia.
probably_has_herpes112 karma2013-01-14 05:10:55 UTC
Honestly, how is your sex drive? I mean, a lack of complete proteins, "good" cholesterol, zinc, etc. should be thwarting any erections that may want to happen..
dan42183318 karma2013-01-14 05:13:51 UTC
It took me like 25 minutes to masturbate last night.
probably_has_herpes109 karma2013-01-14 05:36:38 UTC
By gosh, eat some oysters, man! Not even kidding, I can masturbate twice in 25 minutes.
dan42183125 karma2013-01-14 05:39:58 UTC
I might get some oysters if the Japanese food place is still open at about 11, I don't like the raw ones, they remind me of fishy oatmeal, but I do love me some kake(fried oysters)!
bensuave26104 karma2013-01-14 06:17:33 UTC
So, you don't like oysters... because they remind you of the food you're so in love with that you've eaten nothing but that for the past 3 months?
dan42183161 karma2013-01-14 06:21:52 UTC
They remind me of fish plavored Oatmeal, I've heard when fish tastes like fish that the fish is n ot good, if the Oatmeal tastes like fish, it's definitely bad.
probably_has_herpes9 karma2013-01-14 05:46:52 UTC
Avoid fried foods. It may not matter as much when you're younger, but it certainly affects things when you get older. Something to keep in mind.
dan4218327 karma2013-01-14 05:52:13 UTC
I'm sure my heart can handle it after nearly a killogram of soluble fiber over the past season.
Pirate20125 karma2013-01-14 05:24:59 UTC
complete proteins, "good" cholesterol
complete proteins, "good" cholesterol
What are some examples of foods with the above in them? (asked seriously)
probably_has_herpes20 karma2013-01-14 05:45:29 UTC
Eggs (with yolk), salmon, shellfish, and citrus fruits mixed in. Red meat is ok in the short term but I believe it will cause more problems to you cardiovascular health over time than its worth. Avoid excessive carbs, avoid soy-based foods (especially "fake" vegetarian option meats), abstain from alcohol and smoking, excercise regularly (yoga is great). Also, learn to manage stress and anxiety as these are over-looked boner-killers. Again, yoga. If you are on anti-depressants, your libido may be affected (except for Welbutrin;) ). And don't jerk off too much. Allow your penis to be naturally aroused by actual intimacy. Stay hydrated. Stay positive. And use a condom.
dan4218324 karma2013-01-14 05:52:50 UTC
Also, try not to get herpes.
dan421839 karma2013-01-14 05:37:33 UTC
Avacado and Tuna.
kiaha97 karma2013-01-14 06:14:10 UTC
Did you do anything creative with the oatmeal?
dan42183699 karma2013-01-14 06:26:40 UTC
You mean like pour it out onto a cookie-sheet and form it into the shape of a woman when I didn't want to eat any more Oatmeal? Then making the voice of the woman saying, Dan, Dan please come eat me, I need to be in your mouth? No, not at all.
warpaint93 karma2013-01-14 06:32:28 UTC

Trolls-Gone-Wild87 karma2013-01-14 05:13:14 UTC
You seem strangely obsessed with oatmeal. Have you gone through any major life changes in the past few years?
dan42183397 karma2013-01-14 05:17:04 UTC
A few close family members died, my significant other left me out of no where and all three of my hampsters died this year, but it's nothing that the power of oatmeal hasn't been able to help me cope with.
This_is_4_you87 karma2013-01-14 04:15:02 UTC
Have you gain/lost weight from this? What's your favorite type of oatmeal
dan42183169 karma2013-01-14 04:19:56 UTC
I've lost 12 pounds.
Mayor_Of_Boston55 karma2013-01-14 04:59:42 UTC
did you change your exercise habits.. or was it simply the power of oatmeal?
dan42183161 karma2013-01-14 05:09:45 UTC
I actually started to do the olympic rings in November, so I guess the power of oatmeal?
textanddrive85 karma2013-01-14 05:25:01 UTC
I take it that you don't lift.
dan42183392 karma2013-01-14 05:34:26 UTC
I'll fight you IRL.
textanddrive60 karma2013-01-14 05:36:20 UTC
Cool. I don't know if your oatmeal body can do any damage, but I'm sure it will be a blast.
dan42183193 karma2013-01-14 05:41:37 UTC
I'm like the wind son! It'll be like trying to get your hands on a steaming bowl of oatmeal, it'll only hurt to touch me and I'll be through your hands as fast as you can grab hold of me.

I'm pretty open-minded but 100 days is too long...
dan42183274 karma2013-01-14 04:35:17 UTC
You're missing out, just submit to the oatmeal.
HonziPonzi103 karma2013-01-14 06:43:03 UTC
I subscribe to the oatmeal, does that count?
dan42183118 karma2013-01-14 06:51:38 UTC
There is only one Oatmeal and if you take it into your heart then it does count.

dan42183295 karma2013-01-14 05:44:54 UTC
No, he's dead, but my grandma misses hers.

dan4218370 karma2013-01-14 06:05:00 UTC
Nah oatmeal doesn't stick to your teeth like other foods do. But I do have "oatmeal teeth".
d1sturb4nc335 karma2013-01-14 06:25:31 UTC
What is "oatmeal teeth"?

how many calories of oat meal did you eat. Seems like your weight is about the same but body fat percent went down
dan4218371 karma2013-01-14 05:07:39 UTC
Anywhere from about 2500 with soymilk in it, to like 800 on days when I was REALLY sick of oatmeal.
dan4218395 karma2013-01-14 04:25:45 UTC
Day 1 nothing but Oatmeal.

I make my oatmeal from scratch. Apple juice instead of water, and topped with toasted coconut... mm mm.

I'm not sure what else you'd suggest me eating? Oatmeal squares? That would be ludicrous.
Internationalhomeboy66 karma2013-01-14 04:43:47 UTC
How did you not get tired of oatmeal?
dan42183344 karma2013-01-14 04:49:20 UTC
I am very sick of oatmeal, at some point I just kind of went on auto-pilot mode. I got to a point after about 40 days where not getting to 100 days just seemed commical. There were a number of days where I ate one a day because I couldn't imagine eating any more oatmeal, but when you get hungry enough, and all you have is oatmeal, you'll eat oatmeal.
JVani49 karma2013-01-14 07:04:07 UTC
You must have the willpower of a god. Hearing your story makes me want to do something similar myself but I can already see myself starting on a Wednesday and sitting by the bar with a basket of wings in front of me with my friends on Friday.
dan42183115 karma2013-01-14 07:16:04 UTC
That's a horrible attitude and you have horrible friends, don't let them hold you back, submit to the Oatmeal, 100 days of only Oatmeal and you'll be a new man, capable of anything you want to do.
sledge0764 karma2013-01-14 05:05:56 UTC

dan42183166 karma2013-01-14 06:24:12 UTC
If you eat nothing but sugary cereal for 100 days you will have no taste buds at all.
dotspace59 karma2013-01-14 05:48:08 UTC
I ate oatmeal for most meals during a summer when I was doing a start-up. I ate it raw - just like cereal. Sometimes I just poured water on it. Sometimes milk. I remember after a long day of work, I expected to have oatmeal and water. When I got home to my kitchen I saw that my girlfriend had dropped off milk, Corn Flakes, and sugar. Seriously, that was a memorable meal.
Oatmeal is the shit. I had a big-ass bowl yesterday.
dan4218391 karma2013-01-14 05:56:28 UTC
A clever entrepreneur indulging in Oats. Who's crazy now?

dan42183159 karma2013-01-14 04:45:42 UTC
I find Turkey disgusting, I had an experience as a child where I bit into a sandwich loaded with Turkey lunch-meat. What I bit into was a "pocket" of Turkey-Fat in the lunch-meat. Now whenever I think of Turkey I think of "lunch-meat fat-pockets".
My family found it quite strange, my Mother was clearly bothered by it but refused to even aknowledge that it was weird because I think if she did she would have over-reacted.
My brother's 5 year old daughter thought it was pretty cool.
HasFuckedYourMom49 karma2013-01-14 06:06:09 UTC
Do you plan on eating oatmeal in the future, or are you calling it quits?
dan42183202 karma2013-01-14 06:15:06 UTC
I plan on taking a break from Oatmeal, but everyone once in a while a person must induldge in the creamy joy that is Oatmeal. My largest fear right now is that the first "hard" substance I eat will cut the now tender roof of my mouth.

How much has your squat increased by?
dan4218350 karma2013-01-14 05:34:47 UTC
Box squat or deep squat?
imatechguy29 karma2013-01-14 06:21:42 UTC
Box squat?! The only real squats are below parallel and do not involve boxes!
dan4218351 karma2013-01-14 06:58:16 UTC
Below parallel box squats to kill the momentum, wouldn't want my massively muscular claves to bounce my hammies right back up.
woofer21247 karma2013-01-14 05:39:29 UTC
how much more toilet paper did you use?
dan42183274 karma2013-01-14 05:48:46 UTC
So much that I started hiding it from my room mates for fear of running out. I literally have half used toilet paper rolls hidden around the house like an acoholic house wife has Vodka bottles.
blackcongee46 karma2013-01-14 05:57:37 UTC
How did you poo look like
dan42183285 karma2013-01-14 06:10:54 UTC
It has becoming really unique, I'd equate it to something like a heirloom poop, to use a food reference. You can tell it's poop, but it has almost a mustard yellow tinge to it and it ALWAYS comes out as one solid piece surrounded by a mucosy membrane. Sort of like an egg. It's kind of like I lay a soft slimmy egg everytime I poop.

jo3ly39 karma2013-01-14 06:10:33 UTC
What food did you crave the most whilst only eating oatmeal?
dan42183161 karma2013-01-14 06:17:41 UTC
By far Pizza and avacados, I had dreams about both many times. I woke up with my pillow in my mouth one night, half dead from losing all of my liquid through my touge as I tried to eat my "pizza pillow".
Insufferable_Dalek38 karma2013-01-14 06:06:48 UTC
How soon is it going to be before you feel like eating oatmeal again? Never? Soon?
dan42183118 karma2013-01-14 06:15:44 UTC
I'll try to keep eating it once a day for a while to avoid shocking my system too much.
cheebromeej38 karma2013-01-14 06:09:30 UTC
What did you do with the other food in your house? Did lots of it expire during your oatmeal spree?
dan4218382 karma2013-01-14 06:16:13 UTC
I have four room-mates so they got a good deal of free food.
TheRedGoblin38 karma2013-01-14 05:19:10 UTC
Why didn't you go for the world record for number of days just eating oatmeal?
dan42183118 karma2013-01-14 05:21:29 UTC
I don't know, I just don't have a real desire to. This was more a self-fulfilling thing than a grab at glorious oatmeal fame.

dan42183167 karma2013-01-14 05:35:15 UTC
It's like Mitton's chance of winning in 2016, low.

Has your health improved? How are you getting all your vitamins?
dan42183116 karma2013-01-14 04:21:48 UTC
My health has not improved, I have lost some weight and my hair is surprisingly healthy, but my skin is not doing well at all and my joints hurt.

Maybe it's time to rethink your diet...
dan42183170 karma2013-01-14 04:52:28 UTC
The diet is over in 3 hours.

Is it worth it?
dan42183124 karma2013-01-14 04:31:40 UTC
The joy of oatmeal is surpassed by very few things in this world. Given the chance to do it again I would.
I know my time with nothing but oatmeal is coming to a close and can not go on forever, but it was amazing.

How many oatmeals do you eat a day?
dan4218340 karma2013-01-14 06:38:57 UTC
one to five or six.

Do you know if you lost mostly muscle or mostly fat?
dan4218325 karma2013-01-14 06:42:27 UTC
I'm actually stornger now than I was 100 days ago, but my joints don't feel good. I feel like maybe a 50 day Oatmeal only diet would have made me really strong and not taken such a toll on my aching back and knees.

How much weight have you lost?
Your Colon must be polished to a fine luster by now, do you plan on having it photographed?
dan4218313 karma2013-01-14 07:22:52 UTC
12 pounds, hadn't thought about it until now, maybe.
dan4218315 karma2013-01-14 08:36:31 UTC
This pizza is better than Jesus.
dan4218312 karma2013-01-14 07:33:10 UTC
28 Minutes to pizza!

would you like some dhaansaak?

sharkuppercut2 karma2013-01-14 05:06:56 UTC
Did you lose any significant amount of weight because of it?
dan421836 karma2013-01-14 05:45:45 UTC
I lost 12 pounds.
skweezyjibbs91 karma2013-01-14 06:10:21 UTC
What type of oatmeal?
dan421833 karma2013-01-14 06:16:38 UTC
Plain, but I ate it with Soymilk to avoid getting scurvy since Soy Milk has vitamin C in it.
