Have you thought about getting some more protein in your day? Oatmeal is very low, the cottage cheese helps, but having protein with each meal and snack can do fantastic things to eliminate hunger. My current favorite breakfast is to take 2 slices of light wheat bread (45 cals per slice), soak them in 1/2 cup egg beaters mixed with some cinnamon, and cook it as french toast. Delicious and enough protein to keep me really satisfied.

Was the cottage cheese fat free? I've also found that sometimes if I have absolutely no fat in a day (like your menu shown above), I get hungry. Small amounts of healthy fats are good for you, and help to keep you satisfied also.

In winter, a cup of tea sometimes satisfies me also. It is warm and somewhat filling and comforting.
