I love steel-cut oatmeal. It's good with homemade applesauce on it. (I cook a whole batch of apples in the crock pot, mash them up and then refrigerate it). The applesauce makes a delicious topping to my daily oatmeal along with some chopped almonds. Yum.

If I eat breakfast I find myself hungrier through the day than if I don't have breakfast even when I am drinking enough water. I think I need to just retrain my body how to eat, what to eat and when to eat it.

Oatmeal is so good for you and delicious but it doesn't keep me full either. It takes fiber to keep me feeling full in the mornings and a serving of oatmeal only has 4 grams. I eat a serving of Fiber One in the mornings with fruit and yogurt. The cereal alone has 14 grams of fiber and only 60 calories, quite a difference than the oatmeal. Try switching to a high fiber cereal and see if that helps with the morning hunger pains.

Two words: Oat bran! Oat bran takes less time to make in the microwave, and is far superior nutritionally! More protein, more fiber, but similar calorie/fat content.

I eat oat bran every morning with PB (for a bit more fat/protein) and love it!

Following up on Bobbolink's comment - regular instant store brand oats is 4 grams fiber. But "Bob's Red Mill" is 5. That may be why I sensed it is heartier.

I think if your hungry, you should eat.

I eat every 2-3 hours all day It's not how often you eat that counts...it's the amount of calories you consume in a day that counts. Find low calorie filling snacks coupled with high protein snacks to hold you over until the next meal. That's frankly what I suggest. Happy eating!!!
