To Sara: “I’ve heard that eating hi-fiber cereal can help you lose weight. Is that true? If so, what brand do you recommend?”
From Sara: “Eating hi-fiber foods will help you stay satisfied/fuller longer. There are many hi-fiber foods you can eat in addition to certain cereals such as nuts, legumes, and veggies. I do recommend beginning your day with breakfast. Eating breakfast will start your metabolism going so you begin your day feeling more energized. Steel-cut oats (available in Costco for large quantity and lower price) are an excellent choice to start your day. If you prefer crunchy cereal I opt for Kashi Go Lean Crunch. I love Kashi Go Lean Crunch combined with Nutty Nuggets (store brand-like Grape Nuts), and Kashi Autumn Wheat with lowfat vanilla soymilk and lowfat milk all mixed together. Tastes great, full of fiber, nutrients and minerals and keeps me satisfied for several hours.
