Maybe you need a snack in between, does your plan allow that? Maybe even a hot drink, eg, skinny cappuccino.

Everything you mentioned that you have tried is high carbs. Even if you are eating whole grains they are still high carb enough to spike your blood sugar and create the sensation of hunger. Some people do ok with carbs for breakfast but everyone is different. If you are feeling hungry after carby breakfasts try protein rich breakfasts instead. Personally, nothing satisfied me more than a couple eggs. A few veggies in the mix, like a spinach omelet, or peppers and eggs, for example, are best. To feel even more satiated it helps to have a bit of fat in there, so a bit of cheese certainly won't hurt if you are not sensitive to it.

Have some protein. Carbs just make for more hunger.
I usually have a chia pocket with egg and cheese, or a breakfast sandwich. If I do have oatmeal, I add some peanut butter.
I also eat something every few hours. For example
6am- vitamins coffee banana
10am fiber one granola bar
2pm snack (string cheese or fruit)
4pm snack (the opposite of 2pm)
5-630 work out
Add about 90oz of water and vitamins...there is my day.
It works for me. But for sure try adding some protein

i agree- you might want to add some protein in the mix. there are a couple of go to breakfasts i eat:
light english muffin/toast (whole wheat) with peanut butter and a hard boiled egg OR a low fat greek yogurt
low fat greek yogurt with some kind of fruit and a some low calorie granola
i make these spinach egg "muffins": basically, i take a thin slice of low sodium ham or turkey, line a muffin tin, and add a mix of eggs) 3 whole and 3 egg whites) and cooked spinach and onion, bake, and voila, i got breakfast for a week (2 per serving).
you can maybe make the egg muffins or something like it and eat it for a snack between breakfast and lunch.

Maybe try putting a fat with your protein, full faster and longer ex like mixing sour cream with eggs!

Protein. If I have carbs in the morning, especially the ones you mentioned then I'm hungry just one hour later.

Put 3 oz of lean meat and 1/2 oz of cheese on top of 1/2 of a whole wheat bagel. If you're vegetarian use 2 egg whites + one whole egg instead of meat.
Stop eating the darned clementines if you still are, the fructose is spiking your blood sugar. There is no such thing as any individual fruit or vegetable that helps you lose weight. You want diet food, up your low starch veggie intake -- IOW, eat more salads.

My breakfast consists of:
150g egg whites-about 70 calories
stir fry peppers (frozen)- 25 calories
hash browns 84g- 80 calories
center cut bacon 15g- 50 calories
sometimes I put a whole egg in the egg whites while cooking
70 more calories
of course things vary from day to day. but this is A LOT of food. Filling and yummy :3

I used to eat eggs on greens for quite awhile. However, I've recently switched to Dr. Davis's flax seed cereal recipe, adapted to my body.
1/3 cup ground (organic) flax seed
2/3 cup water
Microwave 2 minutes. Top with stevia, cinnamon, unsweetened flaked coconut, walnuts, and for me a smidge of cream.
Also have 1/4 cup of berries with this.
This is very filling! It is also great for optimizing other phases of the digestive process.
(Play with the water to flax seed ratio to optimize this to your body. Dr. D's recommendation was for more flax seed than this and less water, but that had less than optimal effects for me.)
