Honey Nut Cereal: Protein in a Crunchy Package
Cereal may have been the go-to snack or breakfast for you in the past, but it can quickly become an obstacle to weight loss. If you are avoiding cereal but still miss those familiar flavors and the irresistible crunch, we have the answer for you. BariatricPal Honey Nut Protein Cereal can hit the spot while keeping you on your diet.
The Nutritional Stats That Work for You
Take a look at regular cereal, and you will see a few problems. First, they are almost pure carbs – a single ounce of honey nut cereal can have over 20 grams of carbs. Combine that with the fact that it has very little protein, and you are asking for a calorie and blood sugar disaster. BariatricPal Honey Nut Protein Cereal has the taste you love, with stats you can live with. Each serving has only 3 grams of net carbs while giving you 15 grams of high-quality protein from soy.
Portion Controlled for Safer Eating
Most of us have been there, done that, when it comes to opening a box of cereal. You take a handful, and another, and another. There is an excellent chance that you’ll eat way more than a single serving. BariatricPal Protein Cereal is designed for you: each packet contains a single serving, so you can enjoy the entire thing and stop when you’re finished.
An Instant Simple Snack or Breakfast
Stash a box at work or grab a packet on your way out the door, and you can have a slightly sweet, crunchy snack or breakfast for a smooth 100 calories. Those 15 grams of protein can satisfy hunger to get you through the next few hours.
Make It a Complete Breakfast
Another option? Add a few foods to make it a complete meal. Stir your protein honey nut cereal in ½ cup skim milk and add ½ cup sliced banana for a breakfast under 200-calories. Or, you could make yourself a parfait with light yogurt, berries, and a few crushed pecans.
Losing weight successfully can require a balancing act between resisting cravings and satisfying them to prevent overeating later. BariatricPal Protein Cereals can help you juggle your diet as you get your crunch, flavor, and protein, without going overboard on carbs and serving sizes. Enjoy!
