I love cereal. I could easily live off of it for the rest of my life. However, in an attempt to achieve the summer body I’ve always wanted, I’ve abstained from by beloved cereal for the past 3 months. It’s been crazy hard, but I sure as hell am not missing all those carbs that come with it. Yesterday however, in a moment of weakness, I purchased by favorite frosted mini wheat cereal and consumed the entire box in two days. I felt a lot of guilt after this, but I more felt a warm happiness in having my most favorite cereal. This got me wondering, does cereal offer any kind of nutritional benefit, or am I feeling this guilt for no reason?
Today’s infographic compares how much breakfast cereal would equal to the amount of sugar in other snacks. It also gives an overview of what types of cereal contains the most carbs and sugar. The information didn’t make me feel any better about my cereal binge, but hey, it was delicious and I don’t regret it. I’ve come to learn that just like other great things, cereal is good in moderation. Now excuse me while I go and make myself a bowl of cereal. [via]
