Default Quick Portion Question

I am beginning the Insanity program soon, and I was reading through the meal plan and for a 400 calorie oatmeal breakfast, it says to have 1 cup of oatmeal. Does this mean I cook one cup of oatmeal and have all of it, or do I cook the oatmeal and measure out one cup? I'm just a little confused.

There is no way that one cup of cooked oatmeal is 400 cals.

It has to be one cup of uncooked oatmeal.

I agree. My old fashioned oats is 150 calories per 1/2 cup uncooked so that would be around 300 for 1 cup uncooked. Unless the Insanity oatmeal breakfast uses milk, sugar, fruits, etc. to bump it up to 400?

Oh yes, it does! It has almond milk, nuts, raspberries and protein powder. I just wanted to make sure that I measured out the oatmeal correctly.
