Oatmeal is great as a breakfast choice as it’s very filling and makes you not feel hungry for the better part of the morning. Yeah right! Filling my ass! (And you thought the topic meant something else. Boo!).
I have been on this ‘eat oatmeal porridge every morning’ kick for some time now. There must be something wrong with me because the ‘filling’ part of it is missing. Or maybe I need to add a few pieces of toasts, couple slices of bacon, because bacon goes great with everything, and maybe some sausages and an egg or two. Then it would be filling for sure. After my first bowl, I am usually still hungry and the ‘filling’ doesn’t kick it until after the third bowl. In the time it takes to make three bowls, I could have had a real man’s breakfast.
So claim debunked. It’s a myth. Oatmeal is not really filling, unless you are an ant.
