Is cereal a healthy way to start the day, or is cereal bad for you? That’s what we’re going to talk about today.
The nutrition facts on a cereal box are based on one serving size. The problem is that this serving size is unrealistic. The average serving size is one cup, but as we look at the nutrition facts, we’re going to multiply them by four to get more realistic numbers.
There is a tremendous amount of sugar and carbs in cereal. This is going to spike your blood sugar levels and insulin, which will cause you to be hungry and tired just a couple of hours later.
Consuming large amounts of sugar and carbs can also lead to:
• Insulin resistance
• A loss of concentration, memory, and focus
• A fatty liver
• Developing fat around the organs in the midsection
• High cholesterol
• A higher risk of heart problems
Cereals are not high in fiber like some may claim. Also, even though some cereals contain ”healthy whole grains,” these whole grains aren’t actually healthy because whole grains contain phytic acid, which can make certain nutrients unavailable for your body to use. Refined grains deplete essential nutrients as well.
Cereal is loaded with synthetic vitamins, not natural vitamins, and even these synthetic vitamins become useless when the cereal is processed.
Cereal also contains artificial coloring, flavoring, and other chemicals. Some of these chemicals can affect your endocrine system and are even carcinogens.
A great alternative to cereal for breakfast is having eggs—eggs are fantastic for your health. Bacon, sausage, or avocados are also great choices to have with your eggs for a healthy breakfast.

Skipping Breakfast Hardens Your Arteries?
According to a recent study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, those who skip breakfast are more likely to experience atherosclerosis, aka hardening of the arteries, than those who ate a daily, healthy meal in the morning. 1 The connection, it appears, is that those who are breakfast skippers tend to have more unhealthy diets and lifestyles than those who don’t. They found in the study that overall, those who opt to skip breakfast had poorer diets, were more likely to have high blood pressure or be overweight, and were more likely to smoke or consume alcohol in excess. All of these factors lead to an increased risk for atherosclerosis. Lack of breakfast is not the cause, per se, but an indicator of other health habits.
