as many as you want, but why would you want to do that?
use some splenda or try some sugar free syrups to spice it up
Cinnamon / Cocoa Powder go real well

A little bit won't kill you. Just look at the nutrition label and figure out what you can fit in your daily intake.

I have a wicked sweet tooth as well. All I can say is try some artificially sweetened stuff first and if that doesn't work get some high quality sugar and use it in moderation. Anything in moderation will be fine for you, even processed sugar, just don't over do it.

Make it with milk, and mash up a very ripe banana, then mix it in. Bananas do a great job of sweetening hot cereals.

That sounds really nasty IMO. I'd rather put in raisins, berries, bananas, etc, something REAL.

Try to wean yourself off of it even if you have to use the artificial stuff for a bit. I cant eat sugary desserts it would be the death of me and I can live with out it.
Try reading... The sugar addicts total recovery program. that started my re-thinking about eating sugar and how addictive it is.
Use unsweetened peanutbutter in your oatmeal its really good melts right in NOT the skippy stuff (read the label it has icing sugar in it!)

I've tried just about every berry imaginable lol. Blueberries + vanilla whey is good, and raspberries go good with chocolate.

Try oatmeal with milk, it makes it 1000% better.

some poeple on this thread shouldnt put up too revealing of pics o.0, but sugar spikes ur insulan bud, i try to stay away from it as much as possible, oatmeal is good for you because its filled with good carbs mix to much bad carbs into it and then theirs no point of eating the oatmeal in the first place

You need to add peanut butter + chocolate whey/cocoa powder to that list. That is a Reese's in a bowl my friend!

I still hold that a little sugar is fine, you could also use honey, a natural sugar. When I eat oats with my PWO, it's always honey with a little vanilla whey.
