1 packet of instant oatmeal has ~100 calories and only 1.6g of fats (0.3g of which is saturated, the rest are healthy).
It has a fair amount of carbohydrates, but that is fuel for your body ;)
This is pretty good stuff :)
no, but it can cause you to hove a lot of gases.

Anything can be fattening if you eat too much of it. Also consider what you are mixing into the oatmeal (like honey, maple & brown sugar, fruit, etc.)
Oatmeal is actually a great breakfast food because it has fiber and takes time to digest, which helps control your hunger longer.

Oatmeal is my saving grace for breakfast.
Quick and filling!
Be careful of what you add in, raisins, sugar, butter will all add far too many calories.
I use the splenda brown sugar in plain oatmeal.
The fiber is good in oatmeal too.
Stick to large flake oatmeal. Avoid instant. As a rule with carbohydrates, the more processed they are, the higher their glycemic index. This means that they are more likely to stimulate insulin which acts to store energy as fat.
I love oatmeal in the morning, large flake, with blueberries and a little Oat Bran Buds.
Oatmeal is actually high in fiber, and when you pair that with a banana and some non-fat milk, it actually keeps you fuller longer, therefore lessening the possibility of eating more than you should (especially for lunch).
Oatmeal is like a weight loss miracle food. Especially if you eat the Steel cut kind—it takes a bit longer to cook (maybe 10 minutes). It’s low in fat and high in fibre. It’s got some protein. It’s good for your blood sugar. It keeps you full all morning. It contains the right kind of carbs. Do it. Eat oatmeal.
Oatmeal is wonderful! That was one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast. You can add fruit to it or just eat it plain…I even added a little bit of sugar to it on occasion. Go for the oatmeal!

Thank god you asked this question.
I’ve been wondering that for ages.
Most of the research I’ve done though (mostly just googling) has said its the least fattening breakfast in comparison with other cereals etc.
But fruit is better when considering fat content, but energy wise, oatmeal is ace. x
