If you compare the nutritional information (from the boxes) from the Weight control to the regular, plain oatmeal (1/4 cup on plan), the Weight control is 160 calories to 75 calories to the plain oatmeal. If you use it, I believe you have to count the Weight control as 2 starches. The alternative would be to use 1/2 of a packet of the Weight control to stay in the calorie range of the regular old oatmeal and to count it as 1 starch. See my other thread entitled - Oatmeal Question
Note: I love the weight control too especially the banana, but it has been sitting in my cabinet because I won't eat it until hopefully I can when I reach maintenance.
