1/4 cup dry oatmeal is about 75 calories - so see how many calories of oatmeal you were supposed to eat and adjust accordingly.

I hate getting meal suggestions in cooked weight - it's so hard to know when something is cooked versus just measuring out uncooked!

And I used 1/2 cup dry oatmeal (Quaker Old Fashioned Oats) and that's about 150 calories - so I just add it manually and don't check off the oatmeal box on the tracker.

if you are using the information on the container, it's for precooked/as it is in the box.

the tracker at sp uses all cooked measurements - unless that specific entry states that it uses uncooked. so if your tracker called for 3/4 cup oatmeal it was 3/4 cup cooked.

I use the meal plans provided by SP. This morning breakfast is 3/4c oatmeal cooked. I prepared 3/4c of oatmeal and then added my milk and splenda. My daugter commented that it looked like a lot in the bowl. Is the measurement 3/4c BEFORE its cooked or AFTER?? I like mine thin so I add a little extra milk to it. I want to make sure that I am properly tracking my food.
