Either: If you eat too much of it, and it's filled with sugar, cinnamon and raisins, it will make you fat. If you eat a reasonable portion size without a lot of sugar, then it's filling, high in fiber, and can be part of a healthy weight loss plan.

Both: It depends on the whole diet. The fiber in oatmeal is filling, and can be part of a diet to help you feel full. If however, you eat more calories than you need- you will gain weight even if you eat oatmeal
