    Post Cereal twice a day diet?

    Ok, so I want to lose 30lbs (I am 5'2 and I weigh 146lbs)...I just started eating cereal twice a day along with walking 3 miles 3 times a week and doing weight training 3 times a week! Am I out of my mind for eating cereal twice a day or is it ok? I do eat 'healthy' for one meal a day which is mostly dinner.

    Hello, That sounds like the "Special K" diet. I hope you're not using the overly sugared cereal. Are you using skim or reduced fat milk with it, so you get some calcium in there? You could even add fruit to the cereal without doing much damage to your diet. My personal opinion is that it sounds healthier than those commmercial liquid diets. (Slim Fast, Optie Fast...) Good thing you like cereal.

    Hi! Well, let me tell you...I eat 'Honey Bunches of Oats with strawberries' for breakfast and for lunch I have plain 'Cheerios'. I use skim milk for everything! Hehehe yes, I did get the idea from 'Special K'!

    It's good that you're getting your fruits in there, but you really need some vegetables, too. I also think the cereal is too sweetened. The oats are good, but there is so much sugar and honey in that cereal that it should only be eaten occasionally. Try going with more whole foods and less processed foods. Good Luck.

    For good health, whole grain cereals are best. These cereals can be made from whole oats, brown rice, wheat berries, flax seed, millet, and rye etc. Wheat berries are the whole wheat seed.

    I use a Vitamix to grind up my grains. These whole grains are quite nutritious - much more so than processed grains.

    Did you all read about the latest study showing that whole grains can be good for some people with type 2 diabetes? It's something I already knew, but it was nice to read about it again.

    You should try some Kashi GoLEAN. It's made of several whole-grains, and has 10 grams of Fiber and 8 grams of Protein per serving. All with only 1.5g of fat and 180 calories.
