View Full Version : Life cereal

GI rating of 66. kinda high, but this food is really the only "craving" I have. My cheat day consists of......LOTS OF LIFE CEREAL, and then my regular diet.

I figure if I replace my boring rolled oats in the morning with life cereal, as well as having life at night, then I would never need a cheat day at all. I dont really believe in cheat days, but when I have them, its just a box of life cereal throughout the day. seriously, I have no other cravings.

My question is would a GI this high for pre workout(including milk) (along with yams and whey) be a bad idea? everything else i eat is below 50 GI except post workout meals.

Oh, LIFE has no trans fatty acids either. only "bad" ingredient is sugar.

if you HAVE to have life cereal, i'd try to stick with having it for a post-workout meal or at breakfast.

grape-nut flakes and Total, IMO, are two of the best tasting, and also two of the most nutritious cereals out there. Get them.
