Definitely don't count that water.

No you would not count that. Cooking water evaporates a portion of the water added to food. Also most foods actually contain water in them. The recommended 8 cups of water is on top of any water consumed through food because it is near impossible to track.

Personally, I never count the water that goes in my oatmeal, because I figure some of it probably evaporates in the heating process, so I don't really know how much water I'm actually getting out of eating the oatmeal. Besides, I figure it's better to drink more water rather than less, so why count the water in food and skip out on an actual glass of water?

Good morning! I had oatmeal made with 1 cup of water this morning. Do I count that in my count for water? TIA!
