I ate oatmeal every morning for a month. This is what happened.

© Shutterstock I hated oatmeal as a kid. I thought it was mushy and weird, and I reserved instant oatmeal packets as dry mix-ins for my yogurt. (Here’s how to prep your own instant oat packets to avoid all that added sugar.) But when I began working for a health publication—reading articles day in and day out about how fiber is the secret to staying full—I wondered if I should give old-fashioned oats another shot. (Repeat after us: No more dieting. Ever.) A cup of oats packs 5g protein and an impressive 4g fiber, which helps regulate your body’s sugar usage to hold your hunger in check and keeps you, ahem, regular. Studies also link increased dietary fiber intake with lower body weight, cholesterol levels, and risk of type 2 diabetes. Oh, and oatmeal’s rich in plenty of g...

LeBron mum on his postgame chat with Lonzo

2:13 AM ET CLEVELAND — The much anticipated first meeting between LeBron James and Lonzo Ball finished with James registering the 59th triple-double of his career, Ball just missing the third triple-double of his rookie year and the pair slapping hands at center court following the Cleveland Cavaliers‘ 121-112 win on Thursday. James, attempting to shield his words from cameras and lip readers, held his jersey over his mouth as he imparted a few postgame words to Ball, and Ball did the same, nodding along as James spoke. What did James say? LeBron James didn’t have the best shooting night, but his 59th career triple-double helped the Cavaliers hold off the Lakers.

If you are working at Walmart, they will pay you whenever you want

© Gunnar Rathbun/AP Images Walmart is teaming up with Silicon Valley to make payday come early for its employees. The company announced a new “Instapay” service for its 1.4 million workers.

UPS loses family’s $846,000 inheritance, offers $32 in refunds

© Provided by IBT Media A Canadian man says he’s broke after the United Parcel Service lost track of his inheritance. The intended C$846,000 ($660,000) delivery was a bank draft from TD Canada Trust, which hasn’t refunded the lost fortune 10 months later. Instead, UPS offered an apology and C$32 to pay for the mailing cost, according to a CBC News report. “It was a total surprise,” Lorette Taylor told CBC News. “Never in my wildest imagination did I think something like this would happen.” Taylor’s brother, Louis Paul Herbert, said they were finalizing the details of her father’s will last February and went to a local UPS store near Cornwall, Ontario, where he was expecting a package from his sister containing his share of the inheritance in a bank draft...

Source: Cardinals put Peterson (neck) on IR

1:19 AM ET The Arizona Cardinals are putting running back Adrian Peterson on IR because of a neck injury, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter. At age 32 and having been injured in each of the past two years, the veteran’s future will be hotly debated. Here are three likely outcomes.

Cards put RB Peterson on IR with neck injury

I’m grateful for the opportunity that the Arizona Cardinals h...
