Since im in college and live a pretty hectic life (Full time Job, Ironman training, school, gf, etc..) its hard to find time to get a full meal in or prepare one. Sometimes i just want food NOW and i turn to cereal, usually frosted mini wheats. But i know with this im consuming way to many CHO's for my macros and need to cut back.
What can I do about cereal options that will fix / help my addiction. What kind of cereal should i get (brand / type)? Should i just cut it out of my diet all together?
Thanks for the help or suggestions

Consider cooking pasta, rice, beans, chicken, hard-boiled eggs or whatever in bulk when you have a few hours to spare. It doesn't take long to microwave up a meal that fits your macros if you have a lot of options in your fridge.

You are training for an Ironman and you are worried about your CHO intake? What do your macros look like?
I'm a triathlete and I maintain with about 180g prot, 90g fat, 300+g cho daily. I easily fit cereals into my macros daily. Yesterday included selections like Peanut Butter Crunch and Cookie Crisp :-)

Bro I'm cutting with cereals daily, fit them in your macros. Also, if you are training for Ironman than I would not worry about carbs
Just set a fixed amount you can have each day, and learn some self control!?Iron, sometimes it sets my teeth on edge, other times it helps me control the chaos.
