I know breakfast is important, and I have been eating something for breakfast like oatmeal or at the very least a smoothie. I just don't like the feeling that, after only a couple of hours I'm hungry again and need a snack. I know it is doing something, since I'm losing weight but my tummy hates feeling empty and I did better holding off on food before I started eating breakfast on a regular basis.

Does this feeling go away, or is it just going to be a new norm?

    Make sure to get protein of some sort in your breakfast, that always helps to keep me full longer.

    I wish eating smaller meals through out the day worked I work in a resturant with not a lot of time for little snacking. Also making a lot for breakfast at 3:30 in the morning is difficult.

    I agree with the previous posters that breakfast is the most important meal and you should have many small meals rather than 3 large ones. That being said, your breakfast doesn't look there is much protein in it so you're missing what keeps you full for longer! Try having some egg whites as a side to your oatmeal or smoothies. Another option is to put protein powder in either of your breakfast options.

Skipping breakfast just so that you don't get hungry before lunch is not a good idea. The reason that holding off on breakfast reduces hunger is that you have not kick-started your metabolism for the day. Therefore, you're going to burn fewer calories doing your daily routine than if you had breakfast.

    I eat 6 small meals a day - every 3 hours - so I usually stay stable throughout the day.

    I was the same way. I never ate breakfast because then I could not make it to lunch. Now that I have been at it a few months I am usually able to hold off or have a small snack between depending on how early I eat breakfast.

    There is an expression:
"Breakfast Like a King, Lunch Like a Prince, Dinner Like a Pauper".
Although, in the US, we tend to eat our largest meal last, eating a satisfying healthful meal to start your day and not stuffing yourself before bedtime makes a lot more sense. Your "tummy" probably knows this.
