Cereals

I am trying to lose weight and want to eat healthy. I like to eat cereal in the morning but would like the opinions of people to know what cereal is a healthy one to eat in the morning. Iam trying to cut out on alot of sugar and stuff and I know cereal is carbs but this is probably the highest carb thing I would eat all day. Iam not doing a no carb diet just trying to watch my intake and make sure I eat healthy. Also any other breaky suggestions would be helpful! Tks

I've been eating Kashi Go Lean Crunch for a long time now. It's a high protein and high fiber cereal. Tast pretty good too. My sis has lost quite a bit of weight eating this cereal and watching the rest of her foods. She does a lot of fresh veges, fruits, and all chicken and fish.

Good luck.

Thumbs up Re: Cereals

I also agree with Kashi. I eat it for breakfast and sometimes dinner. I like the GoLean Crunch, Kashi Good Friends, Medley, etc. They have very high protein and fiber, with little sugar. I also have tried the Atkins Cereal, kinda expensive, but it has alot of protein and fiber in them. I am a big Raisin Bran fan also, alot of fiber, although it has alot of carbs, it keeps me full and energized all day long. Basically look for high fiber cereals, with little sugar (if the sugar count is less than half of what the total carbs are, it's a good choice).

Re: Cereals

Both the above posters are correct! Kashi is definately the way to go! Try to have some protein with your cereal in the morning too so your blood sugar levels won't dip once the carbs wear off. Total is also great as it's fortified with vitamins and stuff, but unfortunately doesn't have as much protein as Kashi.

Oh, and oatmeal is a great, healthy choice too. :-)

Re: Cereals

Basically if the cereal says "Whole Wheat" or "All Bran" on it and has little if any added sugar it is ok. All Bran typically has the lowest glycemic index on it which means it is less likely to turn into sugar when inside your body. Here are some good choices:
Cheerios - General Mills
Chex, Wheat - General Mills
Grape Nuts - Post
Healthy Choice Toasted Brown Sugar Squares - Kelloggs
Just Right with Fruit & Nuts - Kelloggs
Kashi - Kashi Company

Mini-Wheats, Frosted, Bite-Size - Kelloggs
Mini-Wheats, Frosted - Kelloggs

Nutri-Grain, Golden Wheat - Kelloggs
Nutri-Grain, Almond-Raisin - Kelloggs
Oatmeal Crisp, Almond - General Mills
Oatmeal Crisp, Apple Cinnamon - General Mills
Oatmeal Crisp, Raisin - General Mills
Oatmeal Squares - Quaker
Organic Healthy Fiber Multigrain Flakes - Health Valley
Puffed Wheat - Quaker
Shredded Wheat - Post
Shredded Wheat & Bran - Post
Shredded Wheat, Frosted - Post
Shredded Wheat, Spoon Size - Post
Uncle Sam - U.S. Mills
Wheaties, Crispy 'n' Raisins - General Mills
Recommended: All Bran or High Bran Cereals
(no trans fats, little or no added sugars. )
100% Bran - Post
All Bran, bran buds - Kelloggs
All-Bran, extra fiber - Kelloggs
