Question on bagels...

ok.. so i am very tempted in buying these 300 cal bagels and toast them and eat them for on-the-go breakfast. now if i do get these- i would get an Everything wheat bagel... Will that get me going? because i dont want some high gluten **** that will make me feel like im going to go to the bathroom and pass out in the next 2 hours of eating it.. hahaha... yea.

Re: Question on bagels...

Bagels are crap. They shouldn't even be classified as 'food'. A Cliff Bar is better than a bagel.

Re: Question on bagels...

bagels aren't the best choice for breakfast. eat something with protein, such as eggs, because they are better for you, and will keep you staying full longer, thus keeping you from eating more calories throughout the day

Re: Question on bagels...

If you want to talk BAGELS, how about covering half with cream cheese, a slice of sweet onion and a couple ounces of smoked salmon.
Now THAT'S a breakfast!

Re: Question on bagels...

I don't see why not. I was eating brown rice waffles for breakfast for a while, but lately I've been eating spelt toast with a little butter(balance) and organic jelly. Then, I would be hungry about 2 hours later so I'd drink a whey protein shake to get my protein. I just love having some kind of sweet "bread" product with my coffee lol. I do agree that eating protein with it would be better, but eggs are one of the only options for breakfast and I don't want to eat eggs EVERY day becaue of cholesterol. So, if you feel good after eating the bagel, and not sick, and it's whole grain, I don't see a problem with it. Do you feel sick after wheat products? If you don't then I don't think it would be a problem for you to eat it. Although spelt and kamut are better "quality," wheat is still okay if you can tolorate it and you aren't exhibiting any adverse reactions, cause sometimes it could be unknowingly. Just pay attention to how you feel after eating a wheat bagel.

Re: Question on bagels...

Ok, I'm a bagel lover. To me, it's the same as having a kaiser roll. Here's what I found (Keep in mind this is info. for a whole wheat Dunkin' Doughnut, so it varies.) 332 cal., 62 carbs, 7 g. sugar, 4 g. total fat, and 610 g. sodium.

I looked up Cliff Bar on the internet, did the math, and found these calculations for 2 Cliff Bars. 490 cal., (245 cal. per bar) 10 g. total fat, (5 g. total fat per bar) 450 g. sodium, (125 g. sodium per bar) 86 carbs., (43 carbs per bar) and 46 g. sugar. (23 g. sugar per bar)


Personal conclusion: If you're not worried about sodium, I'd choose the bagel over 2 Cliff bars.

Question, not arguement: How can Cliff bars have less carbs and more sugar? I could understand if they said net carbs, but they didn't.

Re: Question on bagels...

lay off the cream cheese or butter and you're good
you can use fat-free cream cheese or jelly instead <3
