How come I get tired soon after eating cereal for breakfast? I'm not eating the sugary types, but the healthy ones, like Kashi or Grape Nuts.

Michael Collins:  First of all, eating breakfast is extremely important if you want to lose fat, maintain muscle (which consequently burns fat), or simply have energy through the rest of the day.

 

A good breakfast will refuel the body with the amino acids (protein) it needs to reverse the muscle wasting that goes on over night. It will also supply you with some healthy fats that will keep you satiate you and provide energy.

Cereal has none of these qualities, therefore eating it for breakfast simply sucks.

Even though you're eating the "healthy" cereals, you're experiencing first- hand the effects. Sleepiness is a common result of eating cereal for breakfast.

Why does this happen?

Well, cereal is refined. Although a lot of cereals claim they are made of wheat and all this other "good stuff", it's irrelevant. They're a starch. They're still broken down to the simple sugars. Simple sugars, as you know raise your insulin sky- high then crash back down to earth, leaving you hungrier and more irritable than before.

Reader Questions

 

I eat three meals a day but I keep hearing about eating more frequently. If I'm trying to lose weight, how will eating smaller meals more frequently benefit me?

 

How long will it take before I starting seeing results?

 

I have a personal trainer I see at least twice a week. What do you recommend I do on the other days I don't see him? Cardio, weights or classes? I don't want to interfere with his program for me and didn't know which would be better, if not a little of all three.
