Are you a cereal lover?
Do you still believe that the best way to start your day is with a bowl of cereal?
I have to tell you that along with toast it is the first thing I tell my clients to change when they start working with me.
Breakfast is your first meal of the day, it sets out the stall for how you are going to eat for the whole day, how balanced your blood sugar levels will be and therefore your mood and energy levels.
Choosing cereal for breakfast is a poor choice nutritionally when compared to other things you can choose and it doesn't fill you up!
The chances are an hour later you will be starving again and tempted to snack!
I promote breakfasts that are rich in protein and good fats, great choices are eggs, avocado, fish, smoothies or if you wish to porridge is far better than sugary cereals.
People often say "I don't have time in the morning"
My answer to that is just a little prep, boiling some eggs takes 5 minutes, preparing a frittata the night before is a great idea and making a smoothie (emphasis on veggies, avocados and a little berries) takes 2 minutes...
If you start your day this way you will not be hungry until lunchtime and have tons of energy with a sharp brain all morning!
Here are a couple of ideas of how much sugar may be in your cereal, these are based on a 30g serving
Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut 11g
Kellogg’s Coco Pops 10.5g
Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut Honey & Nut Clusters (7.8g)
Weetabix Weetos Chocolatey (7.2g)
Alpen Original Muesli (6.9g)
Nestlé Cheerios (6.2g)
Kellogg’s All-Bran Bran Flakes (6g)
Kelloggs Special K (5.1g)
Nestlé Shreddies (4.5g)
Kellogg’s Rice Krispies (3g)
Kellogg’s Cornflakes (2.4g)
I hope you have found that useful
