  1. I believe that avoiding prepared foods would be
    the first step in order to lose weight. They can taste fine, but
    prepared foods contain very little nutritional value, making you try to eat more in order to have enough energy to get through the day.
    If you are constantly eating these foods, switching
    to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will assist you to
    have more power while consuming less. Great blog post.

      • Hey! Sorry for the late reply. I don’t eat too much cereal but I will answer your question with this. When I do eat cereal, I try to keep to the most condense things. That meaning I won’t choose a cereal with a ton of ingrediants and/or one that is loaded with sugar (like many cereals are). Try to stick to cereals that only have a few listed ingredients and stick to whole wheat as there carb source. So examples of this could be Post’s Shredded Wheat Cereal, Any of the Kashi cereals, Raisin Bran.

        The tough part about cereal is sticking to the actual serving size’s. For alot of these cereals, the sugar content will hover around 10 grams which isn’t that bad but that is within a 1 cup serving. Not many people think about measuring cereal while they dumb clusters of it within there bowl. So basically to reiterate my underlying point, choose a cereal with not too many ingredients (the fewer the better), low in sugar, main carb source as whole grain, and watch the serving size. Consider all though facts and you’ll be good to go! Hope this helped! 🙂

      • Yeah? “Nature’s Path” has these wheat flakes I like to mix up with Kashi’s Honey Almond: great crunch. As you chew, the wheat flakes alone, you can feel the breakdown of the food in your mouth. Taking a break from processed food for a while though. I have this idea of using complex carbs as cereal: bulgur, quinoa. Check into my bog for update.
