Default Which is better for breakfast

Would a bowl of honey nut cheerios or an english muffin w/tbl spoon of peanut butter be better for me to keep me satisfied in the morning?? Or would 1/2 cup granola w/ 1/2 cup of fat free yogurt??

I personally eat Honey Nut Cheerios with fat free milk most days for breakfast and I've stuck with that becuase that breakfast definitely keeps me satisfied for much longer. Sometimes I'll have a Cinnamon Raisin English Muffin with a banana and I find myself getting hungry MUCH sooner.

I love those english muffins! I have one with a banana almost every morning! I think I might have some with peanut butter tomorrow.

Right now I have reduced fat peter pan - is there a better peanut butter out there? It's 4 points for 2 tbs.

really this depends a lot on each individual. LOL! Most people need the protein with each meal to keep satisified however, some it is what they enjoy that keeps them satisfied.

What keeps me satisified is my Breakfast Smoothie in the summer and cereal and milk in the winter.

Personally, fibre has become my new best friend. Honey nut cheerio's doesn't have enough fibre for me so when I do have it, I need to add some fibre one (cereal by General Mills). Weight watchers have their own line of bagels and english muffins that I would highly reccommend. Bagels are 2pt and the english muffins are 1pt. I often toast the e.muffins and slice tomatoes and add 1 slice of Borden's sharp cheese. This morning, I also added an egg. Yumm yumm....I forget the fibre amount but its about 5 grams and well worth it.
