I think what you meant was steel cut oatmeal, right? I'm not 100% sure, but I do know that most steel-cut oatmeal is the "natural" instead of the "instant" variety, and it typically has more fiber in it. Quaker's "Old Fashioned" oats are steel cut, I believe.

And it depends on what you flavor it with if it adds calories. I love adding cinnamon, a splash of vanilla extract, and a packet of Splenda (or a few drops of Stevia) to oatmeal--that doesn't add any calories. For a special treat, I'd add 1/4 cup of pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla and Splenda or Stevia--it adds a few extra calories (but also more fiber!), and it's almost like pumpkin pie.

I haven't done oatmeal in awhile, but those are two of my favorite ways to eat it.
