While many of these cereals have more grams per serving and contain healthier ingredients than Lucky Charms, it still pays to be cautious and check your food labels for sugar content, even in foods that sound healthy. When you are trying to lose weight, those extra grams of sugar in breakfast cereal can really add up.
A much better breakfast choice would be oatmeal with cinnamon, eggs and toast, or an unsweetened cereal such as Cheerios. See 5 Quick and Easy Breakfasts that will Keep You Full all Morning for some more breakfast ideas that will help you on your journey to lose weight.
