Can’t get enough of cereal? We don’t blame you. It’s a quick| easy| and convenient food that makes breakfast a no-brainer. However| if your favorite variety is loaded up with the wrong ingredients| it’s not supporting your weight-loss goals and healthy resolutions for 2015. Dietitian Julie Upton| MS| RD of Appetite For Health| recommends one and one-half cups of Post Great Grains Protein Blend served with low-fat or nonfat milk and one small banana sliced on top.
If you’re not a fan of that particular cereal| you still have options| but you’ll need to closely read the back of the box. According to Julie| when choosing a cereal| it needs to include eight grams of protein| four grams of fiber| and no more than 10 grams of sugar per serving. It may be rough to give up your favorite sugar-laden cereal| but if you follow Julie’s recommendations| you’ll start seeing results sooner!
