What about high protein breakfasts. Cereal is not best choice.

I love eating cereal and would hate not being able to eat it everyday if I wanted to. I would usually have at least 2 cups with 10 ozs of 2% milk. My favorite is Raisin Bran, Raisin Bran Crunch or Kellogg's Special K Berry. I do hate that the carbs are high and have been thinking about switching up to more fruit in the morning.

Well, I love Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Is my pick for mixing with healthier versions of cereal. On my box, store brand Cherrios only have 2 grams protein...back to the drawing board.

Not any of my choices but could tolerate and appreciate with some fruit and yogurt and raw honey.
Anyway, I suggest picking what you like in a cereal and add a healthy size portion of "Grape Nuts" which will bring you up to par. "Enjoy your breakfast"!!
Thanks for sharing!!

I like cereal because it is fast and easy but avoid it as much as possible, I ate Cheerios or Oatmeal every morning for years until it started to bother my indigestion. I now start the day with protein.

Just started my diet. My grand daughter has lost 20 pounds. She drinks a smoothie using protein powder, banana, fruit and that is her breakfast. Her lunch I avocado, turkey lettuce, tomato, with one piece of bread oatmeal brown bread and one slice is 100 calories. I started using her diet tips and feel like I have lost but I don't own a scale so I have to judge by how I feel and how my clothes fit. Only been on it for a few weeks.

I do eat Cheerios and Kashi go lean and Shredded wheat, also oatmeal that I cook on the stove. So I am glad that I am doing that. I will start to watch for the list of ingredients as far as 5 fiber at least and less than 5 gr of sugar.
Thanks for the good article. Very helpful.

I'm with you non-cereal, eat proteins people (raisin bran if you have to or plain mini wheats w/ fresh fruit)...I have 4 children 37, can't loose birth weight years later, no time soccer mom. High financial and time stress. New job. etc. I have paid $200-$300 on every MLM shake and pills sceam (3 no named co's) to make $ and loose wt. First 3 wks wkd then wt came back. It's lifestyle, 3hr alarm on my cell ph to eat, bc I forget and the day goes w/o eating. Protein shakes for at least one meal a must. And, wk/out at least 3days/wk or you'll stop all together. Sugar is the enemy of women especially! Our waste and thighs and energy are how we way our worth and make us feel fat ( it determines our clothing size). 5' 3'' makes me short and pounds show. With 4 kids I have to have energy and don't want to be unhealthy-dr visit lifestyle-grandmother someday like my 2 grandmother's who are only in their 60's. SO, reading labels part of the job now. Good snacks are key and good fresh meals. Cucumbers, tomatoes, banana peppers w/ light watering grow like crazy here in NC and FL my home state and black berrys and blueberry's can grow crazy. Just go Lowes n buy them and plant DONE. its' too expensive to buy and chemicals on the dirty dozen. SO save yourself and your kids. HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE and encouraging and realistic.

There is Uncle Sam, a flax cereal sold at most grocers, plain puffed wheat, rice, millet or corn. Don't forget plain shredded wheat bicuits- not the tiny ones with sugar but the big.

I rarely eat cereal, but when I do:


Magic in a box.
