Default Is Balance with Berries cereal okay for Phase 2?

I have been doing SBD for almost 2 weeks now and have lost 7 lbs. I plan on moving to Phase 2 in the next few days and I just ordered the book from buy.com with free shipping so I haven't received it yet.

I went to the grocery store and bought some light yogurt, blueberries and I bought the Balance with Berries cereal. I really like this cereal but now I'm wondering if it's okay to have. It's made by Malt-O-Meal and it's a high fiber cereal with dehydrated strawberries. For 1 cup, it's 110 calories, 5 g fiber but I didn't realize until I got home the package says it's lightly sweetened. It has 10 g sugar per serving. Do you think it's okay to have or not?

If not, I can always return it to the store. Better to have it out of the house than to have the temptation!

It may be too high in carbs and low in Fiber. I think Fiber One which IS OK has 13 grams of fiber per serving. When you say sugar, do you mean carbs? If so it's net carb count is only 5 which seems low for a cereal with berries.
Most of us who started onto Phase 2 found weightloss slowed or stalled as we added too many carbs at once. Eating only one new carb per day seems to be the trick.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
