My Top 10 Healthy Cereals

A lot of diets try to steer you clear of them and most of the time for good reason. But not ALL cereals are bad.
If you''re anything like me, you love a good cereal.
Here is a list of the top 10 cereals that don’t damage your dieting efforts. Hope this little list makes your mornings a little more enjoyable!
While this great cereal really can lower your cholesterol, it can also benefit your diet. While the serving size is only 1 cup, I find cheerios rather filling and really dont need much more than the serving size. Per serving, Cheerios has 110 calories, 2g of fat and 22g of carbohydrates.
This classic cereal has been around so long its practically ancient. While the serving size is only 2 biscuits, they ARE HUGE! So while there are 155 calories, 1g of fat, and 36g of carbs (6g from fiber, which doesn’t really count since it passes through the body), I dare you to try to eat more than 2 or 3 biscuits.
Of all the cereals on this list, the common person would probably believe that GoLean Crunch is one of the healthiest, if not the healthiest. With 200 calories, 3g of fat and 36g of carbs (8g from fiber), this cereal is a fairly good option. But with its serving size of only 1 cup, it cannot place any higher, even though 1 cup of this is really a full bowl. *As an extra note, this product contains soy, which has been shown to decrease testosterone levels
With this kids cereal, we start getting to the heavy hitters (aka the cereals with a serving size of 1.25 cups). While you will need the full serving size and maybe a bit more to have a reasonable bowl of cereal, Kix’s 110 calories, 1g of fat and 25g of carbs are all very respectable. Plus it tastes great!
Let me start out by saying that while this cereal is very healthy, it doesn’t really taste that good… But anyways, it is very healthy, with 120 calories, 0g of fat, and 26g of carbs per serving, which is 1.25 cups. As an added bonus, you tend to eat less of foods that don’t taste good, so it might be a good thing for your diet!
Coming in fifth in the countdown is another kids cereal, Rice Krispies. I like Rice Krispies because you get tons of stuff packed into its 1.25 cup serving size. Per serving, it has 128 calories, 0g of fat and 28g of carbohydrates.
Unlike the other top contenders, this healthy cereal has a very small serving size. But while the serving size of Grape Nuts is only 1/2 a cup, it is EXTREMELY dense, making 1/2 a cup seem like a feast.While Grape Nuts have very few ingredients, which is a definite plus, their slightly unimpressive nutritional info keeps them from ranking any higher. Per serving, it has 208 calories, 1g of fat and 46g of carbohydrates (5g from fiber).
Unlike many of the other cereals on this list, Total Corn Flakes is jam-packed with vitamins and minerals.In addition, it only has 112 calories, 0g of fat and 26g of carbs. And that’s with a massive serving size of 1.33 cups! If you are looking for a great cereal and happen to like the taste of corn flakes, this isn’t a bad choice at all.
For anyone on a low carb diet, this cereal is a fantastic choice. While its serving size is only 1 cup, it only has 70 calories, 0.5g of fat and 15g of carbs per serving! And since this cereal is made by Kashi, you can trust that it is made of quality ingredients. But there is one more cereal left in this countdown that is even healthier than Kashi Puffs!
So here you have it, the best of the best, the cream of the crop, numero uno, Quaker Puffed Wheat. While this cereal is extremely similar to Kashi Puffs, it edges them out with a serving size of 1.25 cups. In that large serving, there are only 50 calories, 0g of fat and 11g of carbs. WOW! As far as your diet goes, this cereal is absolutely amazing and almost dietarily insignificant (but not quite). Unfortunately, like all good things, Quaker Puffed Wheat is extremely hard to find
