You can feel fuller for longer periods of time

Oatmeal is full of fiber, which is a great way to fight back urges to overeat. The body cannot digest fiber, so it slows down digestion. This helps you to feel less hungry for a longer period of time. It can also help to regulate blood sugar. “Having oats for breakfast or incorporated into different foods as meals and snacks is a great way to give the meal more staying power and help you feel fuller for longer,” according to Maggie Michalczyk, RDN. Cooking up a hearty bowl of oats every morning is one way to increase your oat intake, and keep your cravings for unhealthy foods in check for the rest of the day. Add in some honey and fruit to satisfy any cravings for sweet foods and treats.
