ITs funny i never hear the mention of cereal with bodybuilding. Sure it has carbs and sugar.....But im on my cutting stage and yes heres what i noticed I stopped all sugar didnt lose weight...Now i eat sugar and lose weight. I guess it depends hwo the body respnds to certain foods. I eat 2 bowls of Special K red Berries Cereal...IT has 25gms of carbs and 10 gms of sugar and im sure i eat double the normal amount spcified per bowl. I get only 4 servings from it when the nutrionational content is for 11 bowls. Yes been eating this for 2 weeks along with regualr food....They are high in calories 2 bowls which would be around 600 cals just from cereal and around 125 gms carbs. This past week i havent trained cuz imt aking some time off...noc ardio or any exercise. Weight seems to dropping rapidly, totally contradicted my low carb diet. I only get carbs from my cereal, takes awhile getting used too cuz its heavy on your stomach but i like milk n stuff so its all good. Just thought i would share my experience. Did i mention i drink a litre of fat free milk a day

You may not be looking in the right places. Sugar cereal (kiddie cerceal) is a common food utilized by dieters for a "refeed". When you diet for extended periods your leptin levels drop. Frequent refeeds (typically high carb/high sugar and low fat) will keep leptin levels high. I assume that is what you are finding happening with you.

I think some cereal like 100% wheat ones are good. Throw a little flax on there. 1% skim milk. Tasty.

Lately I've not been eating any cereals. But when I do, it will be something similar to the above.

I eat Total cereal dry. Good stuff, lots of vitamins too. Could this also be because you might be eating the way another body type should eat? Ectomorph, Endomorph and Mesomorph I think? Do you know which type you are?

im a mesomorph i guess.....cuz in the last six months i was so alzy i ate a Medium pizza everyday i wont even lie, this si true dominoes knew my name. Yet i didnt gain much fat...I was still at the same waist size as 34. Never exercised (Im largely built). I dont have trouble losing weight its been 1 and 1/2 months since i've been cutting.I lost a inch and a half i wear a size 33 now which is still not tight enough i wear em as low rise. So im guessing im doing okay with my progress.
