The Importance Of Cereal

This reason this post is so late is because lately I've been going to bed later than usual and, thus, waking up later than usual. I went to bed at about six AM and woke up a few times before finally staying up at about half one in the afternoon. Which means I missed my mail; which sucks because I'm expecting several packages at this point. I'll have to go pick them up tomorrow.

That's not what I'm here for though. Today I'm here with something related to my diet thing. I'm not exactly on a diet, I'm just eating better. Seriously, that's all it is. It's also super ridiculously easy. I've also had a breakthrough. Cereal is stupidly awesome when it comes to your day.

Because I've not woken up early in quite a long time I've also not had cereal in quite a long time. I (usually) wake up at around ten or eleven in the morning. I go to bed pretty late so it all evens out. I tend to just wait until lunch time to get something out and have a decent meal. Yesterday I decided to have some cereal and it was about 130 calories. In one meal. Before I started cutting back I was eating maybe about 800+ calories a meal and three of those will do terrible things to your stomach. It's the main reason I wasn't losing weight. Well, pretty much the only reason. Once I started cutting down I eat on average 500-600 calories a meal which is about 1500-1800 a day. That's enough for a steady weight loss. It is, as I also said, EASY. Substitute one of those meals for something that's only 130 calories and I either allow myself more calories later on, or just less overall.

Well I've just bored the lot of you so I'll leave it at that. Enjoy your breakfast folks. It's worth it. I'll have more news as for as being published goes when I have it. I sent the guy an email a few days ago asking me when he plans to publish and haven't had a response yet. It sucks.

  1. What I don't understand is how come when I take in more calories I don't gain weight? If my body is burning up those extra calories like that, then what was I running off of before I started taking in extra calories. I am sure there is a scientific explanation for this, but I don't know what.

  4. I find it really difficult to count calories.
    Home-cooked food is great to eat but not when you're trying to watch your weight.
    But your idea makes sense.
    What happens to 'breakfast is the most important meal of the day' then??!
    ;)
