Quaker One Minute Oats
I've been using this stuff for the longest time, and never noticed the starch content, is 16g per 1/3 cup a lot? is this normal, I'm currently cutting so if eating these oats are detrimental to getting shredded I'd like to know
Also, how many grams of carbs are in 1/2 a cup, I'm getting mixed numbers from everyone. hehe
From my calculations its 30g's of carbs
And, I eat about 80-200g's of oatmeal a day, depending on what day it is, is it okay to put ground cinnamon on it every time i eat it while cutting?

It's fine. 30g is right. I like to use old fashioned Quaker, and then simply microwave it for 3 minutes, it does the same thing, and I don't feel like I'm eating instant. It doesn't really matter either way. You're good .

I eat oats w/splenda and cinnamon everyday. It's perfectly fine. I've actually read some recent reports that cinnamon may have other health benefits. Here's an excerpt from one article:
"Less than half a teaspoon of cinnamon daily could significantly reduce the risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease in people with type 2 diabetes, suggests a small trial in next month’s Diabetes Care journal.
Researchers from the US Agricultural Research Service and colleagues from research institutes in Peshawar, Pakistan found that just 1g of the spice per day reduced blood glucose levels, as well as triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol in a small group of people with type 2 diabetes."
So eat up! I know a lot of people say you need to eat the slow-cooking oats, but I'm almost positive it makes no difference if it's the 1 min. or 5 min. kind. They both have the same nutritional values, the same ingredients (just oats) and the same amount of fiber.

Here's how 1 minute oats compares to sweet potatoes...
As long as you keep dropping BF than you are OK... if you feel like you have hit a wall... then think about reducing your portion size...
As far Cinnamon goes... believe it or not, there is some researching indicating it will actually help you 'cut up'! I always throw a spoon in with my oatmeal...
"Cinnamon, Anderson said, makes cells much more sensitive to insulin , thus increasing glucose metabolism, a process in which cells convert blood sugar to energy."

Andre, on the bag it says 30g serving (1/3 of a cup) = 20 carbs, 4 protein, 2 fat, that's 114 Calories, so how is 45g's 171??

If 30G's = 114 calories... then you multiply 114 X 1.5 to get the value for 45G's...
114 X 1.5 = 171
Who would have guessed that all that high school math would come in handy one day

I'm not talking about total grams of the serving, but the total grams of carbs per serving.........

Same thing applies...
A 30 gram serving has 20G's of carbs...
And a 45 gram serving has 30G's of carbs...
Multiply the calories or macronutrients of 30G's by 1.5 to figure out the amount for 45G's (1/2 cup)... if you want to figure out a full cup, multiply by 3...
