I have been thinking about my response and I think that I can give you a more complete explanation.
Here is the problem with the Go lean instant hot cereal. Fiber One equals 1 starch and has a recommended serving size of 3/4 cup, calories 90. The hot Go lean is almost twice the calories.
So the instant Go lean is the equivalent of almost 2 starches as compared to Fiber One.
Compared to the recommended calories for 1 slice of whole grain bread (40-45calories per slice) it is almost 4 starches.
Bottom line is that this is not going to help you lose weight.
Before I started LAWL I loved to use the instant flavored oatmeals, but they are not on the plan either.
Maybe if you ate one half of the packet, you could call it 1 starch, but with the prep-packaged instant cereals that is hard to do and probably not enough cereal to make it worthwhile.
Additionally, the Go Lean Crunch numbers that you listed above are for 1 cup, but the serving size listed in the new program books is 1/2 cup.
Thinner is better...........
