I followed a moderately low-carb plan (not ultra-low, like some people do), so I didn't eat Cereal at all during the weight loss phase. I do now that I'm in maintenance, but not a bowl of it. I'll put 2-4 T of Kashi granola or some kind of high Fiber cereal on my yogurt to give it some crunch.

p.s. if you are carb sensitive (and I am NOT - but lots of people are), I would stay away from cereal. At least while you're in the weight loss phase.

at one month out, you should be focusing on Protein and maybe some cooked vegetables

I was allowed to eat cereal as early as my soft phase, but I've never been interested in doing so. Maybe if you found a legitimately healthy cereal high in fiber and super low in sugar then added Protein Powder to the milk it might be relatively decent.

But odds are any healthy cereal is going to be absolutely disgusting as it won't have any sugar in it (and you probably won't want to add anything sweet like fruit because they're already high in carbs)

The healthiest cereals I can think of is the Ezekiel Sprouted grain stuff which has 0 sugar and a decent amount of fiber and Protein, but it's still relatively high in carbs (and probably taste terrible with no sugar)

At my close to 10th month I haven’t had cereal.. but I guess you can after 2nd month you can eat anything you want in portions.. I would suggest high Protein cereal.. and of course low in sugar

I eat cereal about once a week. I will either eat some sort of grain based cereals or homemade cream of wheat. I don't eat super low carb.

My favorite cereal is the Kashi whole wheat biscuits. They have a lot of fiber and Protein - they are lightly sweetened so keep that in mind. (My favorite flavors are the cinnamon harvest and the autumn wheat.) I'm pre-op so I'm not sure when I'll be able to eat them after surgery, but the wheat soaks up a lot of the milk and they get quite soft and mushy so I am thinking I might be able to swing them in the soft food phase.

Whole wheat has protein, plus you can sprinkle in some ground flaxseed for more. Add your milk and depending on serving size you could get 12-20 grams of protein in a bowl.

I wouldn’t eat actual cereal. Commercial cereals have nothing good in them that are worth the sugar or empty carbs. If you decide never to eat typical grain foods like breads and rice and stuff, you might, like me, want to eat some form of “homemade granola” to get in some of the nutrients and resistant starches we need. I make a “granola” with oats and three kinds of seeds. (Allergic to nuts). I eat it every day, 2 Oz of it. I am not sure I could stay regular without it! No sugar, a drop of honey, some sea salt.

Depends on the type of cereal you are purchasing. Check the food label.

(old school instructions) I was not allowed bread rice, potato Pasta or processed foods in weight loss mode. Carbs came from veggies.

I have a yogurt and top it with granola in the morning. Ridiculous I make my own granola too. lol oats, nuts, seeds, blackstrap molasses.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
