Oatmeal question

  • hi everyone! i am day 4 right now and i do have a little question about oatmeal.

    when the book says 1 cup of oatmeal, does that mean prepared or dry? i didn't know, so i have been making my breakfast with 1 cup water and 1/2 cup dry oatmeal. when i make it, it seems like more than 1/2 cup prepared, so i think i am eating too much.

    what do you think?
  • I think it means 1 cup prepared. So, you would use 1/2 cup dry. I will do some research and get back to you. I eat 1/2 cup dry. Because it doubles when you add liquid to it. Or so it seems.

  • From what I can tell by reading posts from different groups... it is 1 cup of cooked oatmeal.

    Anyone else know for sure??

  • I'd also agree it's 1 cup of cooked oatmeal.
