Start Your Day With a Smile…Avoid These Foods for Breakfast


2. Kid’s Cereals

With bright colors and a sweet taste, cereals aimed at kids have everything you don’t need and little of what you do need in the morning.

Avoid the sugar and food dye combo and switch to a high-fiber whole-grain cereal or oatmeal instead. Kids cereals can be loosely defined as any cereal with a cartoon character on the box.

That cartoon character is red flag, warning that inside is a nutritional disaster.

Some studies have noted that one serving of most of these cereals has an entire day’s recommended allowance of sugar. And sugar first thing in the morning prepares your body for a blood sugar roller coaster throughout the day.

The reason kid’s cereal is so popular is because it tastes good, and marketers of kid’s cereal know how to make the products popular for kids. Most cereals have a cute mascot, “They’rrrrrrrr GREAT!” and kids identify the mascots with the cereal brands.

Stay away from popular kid’s cereals and again, add protein to your breakfast instead. Your body doesn’t need sugar in the morning for energy, your body needs a combination of healthy carbohydrates, protein and fats in order to feel good.

Fill up with healthy choices that will have a lasting effect throughout the day. Sugar cereals should be eaten sparingly, if at all.

    So self absorbed! America is lost and all of the old guide posts are pitched into the trash! We have an abundance of food because dudes in lab coats concocted this mess we call food so that a huge abundance of it could be manufactured to fill many bellies…at the cost of health and all for huge profits….! We do not eat to survive…we exist to be sold an item then we consume it as we are told to do. We buy it for the sake of spending cash on it. They profit we slowly poison ourselves…but not to worry others will take our place. We exist simply to be sold stuff to. When we no longer can afford to buy the stuff they are selling then we are useless. You watch…as the great middle class exits…they will market increasingly exssensive items to the next level up. Apple is such a good example of this whole worlds existence! A 10K watch???? We are all so sickly and dealing with fat troubles. We are consumed by this 24 7. Folks…non of us wirks the way our parents did on the farms and factories….You fatties know this. You all eat and sit maybe walk a bit on yer jobs…but we do not work as a country the way we did in the past. Now we eat like pigs…but can not figure out why we sick? If you were to excercise like some sort of marine dude or dudess does you turn everything you eat into ash! A little bit comes out of you at the end of the day! Not so now with you all. We eat so much and crap loads! you say? Dat come outta me? Yes cuz so much went in! You right about not eating anything…actually you can eat all you want of zero calorie foods!!!! but you just goin put dat wait on de minute you eat dem high calorie stuffs. dis is da prablem! If you fat stop eating high calorie foods. You have to eat 500 calorie a day and spend 1800 calorie a day to lose yer fat! Dat is how it works….! No short cuts!
