Cherrios and diet

I was running late this morning so I had a cup of Cherrio (whole-grain cereal) and a protein shake with 25g (one scoop Whey) and 5 LEW's mixed together. Is this an OK breakfast? And I just had 25g nuts and 1300mg Flaxseed oil for my 1030 meal. Thanks for the input guys

    The cheerios will be full of sugar but you had whey with LEW so good protein mix there. Your 10:30 meal is imcomplete add some protein to it. If its not for everyday then id say no harm done but be on the lookout for hidden sugar in wholegrain foods

    the difference is highly processed sugar. I believe the emphasis is on clean eating and as such sugar coated cereals that have been highly processed are not clean wholesome foods. Ill have toasted oats with honey as my personal preference

    Cheers,

    What sort of difference would be noticed from the two however, apart from the mind-set that one is 'cleaner' then the other? Comparasions of glycaemic and insulin responses?

    dont have any apart from the fact that 95% oats with 5% honey is lower on the GL then 65% whole grain mixed with 35% sugar. If anyone that can provide a better then please post one as i dont have a clue

    the wholegrain ones they have here are coated with loads of sugar and theres only one version so thats what im basing my reply on. I know they have honey nut cheerios etc but from experience the amount of pure honey VS refined sugar in them is very high in refined sugar and usually a touch of honey

    We found a significant reduction in glycaemic and insulin responses when sugar replaced the rapidly digested starch in a processed breakfast cereal

    Again this is based on the cereals being highly processed, unprocessed cereals like Oats, Weetabix, Shredded wheat etc i believe are a different story. Even if GI wasnt an issue surely all that sugar cant be good for you teeth

    Oh yeah those honey nut ones are glazed with sugar.

    What about these?

    Not in the USA right now mate, dont have access to a box, you wanna send some my way along with some froot loops . One thing i know as a american is that the USA is obsessed with "low fat means its good for you" more often than not its full of sugar which is often more detrimental. Cheerios are processed as no wholegrain looks like that naturally, i do however like puffed wheat as its just been cooked and vacuum expanded so not really that highly processed. Or my personal fav or toasted oats, 1 crushed weetabix some honey and a good big tub of fat free natural yogurt, sortve semi granola and really good with some mixed nuts too

    does GI/GL have any 'place' when added to other foods though?

    Its okay as a 1 off but not the thing of a staple, achieve a balance - some nutrition is better than none - Skip Lacour said he would rather miss a workout than a meal - such was the importance of nutrition
    and I am of the same opinion
    Something is better than skipping and Cheerios are better than some other selections in terms of suitability and not as good as others.

    My preference these days is for oats and a apple juice based fruit smoothie to which protein powder can be added as required.

    I thought Cheerios were doughnut seeds anyway
