Default L A Weight loss and Corn Flakes!?

Hello Everyone:

I have been on LAWL for a month now and managed to loss 9 pounds so far slow but good start, anyway my question was why do they list corn flakes as a carb craver when it only has 2 grams of suger per serving. i usually would like to start my day with cereal and i really hate what they have listed as allowed cereals does anyoone know?!!! your feedback is appreaciated .

In order to have a cereal and it count as a starch on the program - my understanding is that it can't have sugar or salt in the first five ingredients listed....Their are only a few like that for example - All Bran, puffed wheat, puffed rice, puffed corn and a few kashi cereals.

I bet Corn flakes is CC because of the carb content - very little fiber- the added sugar and the processing......

I know this doesnt sound great but fiber 1 is on their list and its good IMO. I had it for the 1st time on LAWL & thought i would hate it. at 1st it wasnt great but i love it now and you get all that extra fiber. I actually crave fiber 1 now. Give them a try, you might like it.

Just a little side note, i'm not sure how it will work with you but if i have cereal every day my weight loss slows down because its a heavier starch.

Yeah-some of the new cereals took some getting used to-but i really like them now-the kashi cereals-the one that kind of like cheerios is good. Also the GO Lean ones. Very good with a banana or berries.

I'm a fake egg/lf cheese/mini bagel sandwich kinda breakfast girl though. Breakfast is one of my biggest meals.

Have any of you tried the Nature's Path Flax Plus cereal? That's what I've been eating everyday (well, 5 out of 7 days) since I started this program in May. These with 8th continent light vanilla soy milk, yummy!

I'm with you Heather, I always want to try the chocolate 8th continent soy milk but I'm afraid I'll hate it. I don't even know if chocolate is considered to be on plan, but I'm curious on the taste.

You know-a box of soymilk is pretty cheap. Pretty much worth it if you really end up loving it.

As for choc milk-I hear it's pretty good, but last nite I used the sf ff choc syrup in skim milk. Yum! that's the way to use that syrup. Cuz otherwise-it's pretty weird tasting!

Silk soymilk makes single-serving containers - 8.25 oz, sold in packs of 3 or in some places, individually. I know they do this with the shelf-stable products (these are basically ultra-sterilized so that you can store them in a pantry, not in the fridge), but may have individual servings in the refrigerated varieties as well. If you wanted to give it a try you could see if you could find a single serve container.

My local Starbucks has the single-serve ones available - you might not be able to get the light vanilla, but at least you can spend a dollar or two and see if you like the soy flavor, then buy the lighter version (sweetened with splenda) in a bigger container if you like it.
