One of the biggest changes we made when we changed the way we ate as a family was to cut out cereal. I mourned that day because I love me some cereal. But it is jut filled with all sorts of stuff on our do not eat list. Well I grew very tired of eggs and oatmeal for breakfast so we have let a few cereals back into the rotation. But I am pretty selective in what got let back in. Anything Kashi (cause we love us some Kashi) and Fiber One.
Fiber One is so great in the morning because it is so filling. I like to throw a few frozen blueberries (organic frozen fresh this summer – yummo) to add a touch of sweetness and get a serving of fruits in my day. In my humble opinion it needs a little kick of sweetness and I discovered the reason why. It has zero grams of sugar. Zero. But it has 14 grams of fiber. Hence the filling part. According to the little percentages on box (which I am not sure mean a thing), that is 57% of our daily fiber recommendation. All I know is a lot of times I eat breakfast and am super hungry and snacky about mid morning. The combo of blueberries and Fiber One leaves me feeling nice and full.
Adding fiber to your diet can help you lose weight because you feel more full and are less inclined to eat. Not making cookies and eating spoonfuls of dough and “testing” handfuls of cookies before you give them to friends can also help you lose weight, but that is neither here nor there. I am always looking for ways to easily up my fiber and this one seems like a no brainer.
Do you want to try it yourself? Click on the coupon link below and you will either get a coupon for $1.10 off a box of cereal or possibly a coupon for a free box.
Want another chance at free stuff? I have a Fiber One “Help Take the Hunger out of Dieting” prize pack up for grabs that included Fiber One Original cereal, a cereal-on-the-go container, food scale, water bottle and notepad for tracking what you eat. I have really found keeping track of what I eat helps me lose weight. In fact it is the only thing that helps me lose weight. And I really want to start using a food scale to, but haven’t done so yet.
