    • Fruity pebbles is my favorite.
      Frosted flakes close second.
      Neither are eaten in the morning, mostly as deserts.

  • Why wouldn't it be? It's a very common breakfast food. Maybe not the healthiest choice according to certain diets, but I think as long as it's in a healthy moderation and isn't a brand that is loaded with sugar (like a lot of the ones marketed towards kids), it shouldn't hurt anything.

    • Hahaha I legitimately thought you were a vampire. Not the retard twilight kind, a real one. Confirmined.

      You only feast at night. You probably suck the grease out of bunnings sausages.

  • This is where I draw the line. I've seen it all. These degenerates think they can actually go as far as eating cereal in the morning now. What's next?

  • I forgot to mention what is likely the most nutritious commercial cereal out there. Cheerios (regular).

    Now perhaps there are some other more modern cereal out there that competes with Cheerios; but, it has to be something that did not exist in the very late 1970's to early 1980s.

    In that time frame Consumers Reports decided to test commercial "no cook" boxed serials for their nutrition value. The test method: Feed rats a diet of only the cereal and water, and watch the results. I note that this experiment would be considered unethical today (as it was cruel to the rats).

    Consumers Reports published the results with a rating of how well the rats did.

    There were 3 distinct groups:

    1) The rats died of malnutrition relatively rapidly: Most of the sugared boxed cereals of the day fell into this group (and almost all of those boxed cereals are still available today).

    2) The rats lived for a while, but clearly lost weight and eventually died with a lifespan of 2-4 times the ones who quickly died from malnutrition in case 1. Corn Flakes, Grape-Nuts, and Shredded Wheat fell into this group.

    3) The rats thrived. Gained weight, very active, fur was shiny, etc... The cereal in this group provided all the needed nutrition for the rats: That was only one cereal in this group: Cheerios

    Consumers reports had to spend about 1/3 of the next issue discussion breakfast nutrition and answering comments criticisms, and questions about their study.

    They had to admit that Breakfast was only part of daily nutrition and that none of the cereals would be harmful if eaten in moderation and a person ate appropriate other food in the day for proper nutrition.

    However, that does not change the fact that Oats are singularly a well balanced food source of carbs, fat, and protein; and neither corn, rice, or wheat is. This study was done before fiber was considered as part of a needed daily item. Oats and Cheerios has adequate fiber.

    Cheerios market share increased by a factor of about 4 (stores literally ran out of it), and other companies started making generic equivalents a few years later.

    In more modern times Consumer Reports talk about the most nutritious tasty cereals (you can find the article on the web), and not only is old fashion regular Cheerios on the list; but they use a picture of a bowl of Cheerios for the article. While that study in the late 1970's or early 1980's is considered flawed and unethical by today's standards.... It does not mean that people who study cereal nutrition are not aware of it... and its very real implications.

    May I suggest eating Cheerios, or a generic equivalent.

  • The question is what kind of cereal and how do you eat it?

    Most processed cereals are not actually healthy for you (even if they taste good).

    Other cereals - like oats can be very healthy depending how they are cooked (boiled whole oats are the healthiest - and take the longest to cook).

    How much sugar (or other sweetener), how much milk (or other liquid), fruit, spices, etc. affect things.

    Plain corn flakes with minimal sugar even with milk is actually a reasonable meal if the quantity is reasonable.

    It is largely fast acting carbohydrates (High glycemic index), and should be combined with some protein and fat to balance it out. I would not recommend it for diabetics (or near diabetics) due to the high glycemic index (the carbs get converted to blood sugar fast). But OK in moderation for normal people.

  • Unfortunately yes. Cereal is bad for us but not our taste buds. Try changing it to like eggs and toast or something. At least once in awhile. I enjoy hardboiled eggs in the morning myself.

    • So what if it's mostly carbs? Humans eat mostly carbohydrates in our staple foods.

      • If you go off the USDA food pyramid it says the majority of our diet should be bread, cereal, and processed foods. But the pyramid is bullshit.

        Those foods are not as nutritious and make you fat. The majority of your diet should be green veggies, meat and fish with some peanuts and stuff like that. Some extra virgin olive oil on veggies. You wanna eat alot of healthy fats but less processed bullshit. Eating cereal is like eating cardboard might as well chew up a sugar cube every morning. Your blood sugar is gonna spike and crash all the time eating that shit and you'll be hungrier more and wanna eat more cause ur blood sugar will be low. High fat foods dont do that.

        I like to eat high in fat low carbs but I dont eat bread so no fried chicken or burgers or anything. Just plain baked chicken and omelets and shit.

            • You mean mono sugar's vs poly sugars? I'm not talking about white bread here I'm talking real bread. Some nice baked rye will beat any mass produced stuff.
