South Beach actually requires more fiber and less sugar per half cup serving of cereal. Cold: choose ones with 6g or more fiber and 8g or less sugar, for instance. I think they often require even less sugar than that. Uncle Sam's, Cheerios, Kashi Go-Lean (not Crunch!), Ezekiel, Nature's Path. Unfortunately, many of these are not particularly tasty, but I find I do better if I mix in a spoonful of jam (sugar free if possible) and put it in yogurt, adding in vanilla and/or cinnamon. FWIW!

There’s so much to remember when opting for healthier choices. It could be so easy to fall back into bad habits if not for excellent articles like this one. Still, this is a lot of information to take in.

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.
