I know what you're thinking. Another catchy title, as I did in "Drinking juices is NOT good for your health".
Believe me, I could have been even more dramatic in that article. But like there, I have to tell you some truths.
First of all, it's true that many of the breakfast cereals you can find are rich in fibre. And it is also true that many of the breakfast cereals you can find are fortified with vitamins, usually vitamin B complex.
To repeat, many of them. Not all of them and certainly not the majority of them.
Let's move on by looking at one of the popular breakfast cereal products which is touted as healthy and as a slimming tool.
Clearly fewer calories than the 450 breakfast calories in the headline of the article. Let's be more lenient.
Because, although most cereal companies put up some incredible recommended servings (like 29g!) to make the calories look lower, the truth is that people who eat 100g of cereal at breakfast are in the minority.
Suggest something more common, like 40-50g, something normal for the average person. That is 145-180Kcal. Right. While this number sounds much more reasonable, wouldn't it still be preferable, and even healthier, to get these vitamins and edible fibers from fruits and vegetables?
Natural sources of vitamins, minerals and edible fibres that have fewer calories and are more filling.
Always remember: The less processed foods you eat, the better for your health.
Until next time!
