I've been looking for a good, low GI, low calorie cereal. I thought I had it when I found Multi-Grain Cheerios, but it several souces call it high GI. Is this true?

Kashi Go Lean and Special K are next on my list, but they don't wuite have the flavor of the Os.

What works for you?

Regular cheerios I can pretty much eat as much as I want of. Also very versatile for mixing with different fruits and yogurt. Health wise you should look for a cereal with the highest fiber and lowest sugar. But overall cereal is not the ideal thing to be eating, as it is refined and processed and what not.

Thanks to you both.

I guess the real issue is fining a healthy low calorie, low sugar, low fat, low GI snack that's filling. Multi-grain cheerios violate the GI rule, and Kashi may as well (Most sites say low to mid. Has anyone found this perfect snack?

This is a decent resource: http://www.gilisting.com/low-gi-food-list/...of-cereals.html

How does All Bran, Guardian, Muesli, or Oat Bran even taste?

I'm from Europe so I don't know if you can purchase it in America.

However the brand name is Flahavans Wholegrain rolled oats.

Look it up :)

Glycaemic Index.

It is the chart measuring how fast a certain food raises your blood sugar levels.

For example,

A gi of 0-55 is low (Apple,sweet potato,broccoli)

A gi of 56-70 is medium (couscous,wholemeal bread,banana)

A gi of 71-100 is high (white bread,cornflakes,white rice)
