Measuring your breakfast

often than not, we look at the back of a cereal box and we compare the calorie content of each brand and each flavor to find the “healthiest” cereal.
general rule of thumb is to consume “whole meal cereal with low fat milk” preferably with “high fiber”. guess everyone’s already an expert when it comes to this. what might be lacking if the measurement of a standard “portion”.
a portion of a cereal can be found on the same calories diagram (eg. 30g). so when more than a portion is consumed, it is as good as having an up-sized meal. thus resulting in more calories intake and may not be as healthy as oneed might have anticipated.

so.. now, I am about to teach everyone a simple measuring technique to make sure every breakfast is about 1 serving. :)

grab a regular mug (please.. no big ass mugs allowed) and fill it with the cereal of your choice till 3/4 full. this should be around 33g which results in a standard portion of breakfast. only then will a person be consuming the promised 114kcalories written on the box.

just to take note. 1kcal = 1000 calories
and 1KJ is not the same as 1Kcal. so stick to either kj or kcal. which ever you are more comfortable with. I personally count based on kcal. (more towards Australian standards)

stay strong, stay healthy and..
have your breakfast! this should help everyone in weight management!

especially you ar Cat. eat urban breakkie :)

take care & god speed.
