Cereal remains a breakfast favorite for most Americans with approximately 2.7 billion boxes sold each year. Unfortunately, the most popular cereals consumed in the U.S. aren’t Zone favorable as they are high in carbs and low in protein. Breakfast tends to be the one meal we fall short on protein. Dr. Sears recommends individuals consume about 25 grams of protein at each meal to help with blood sugar and hunger control. Here are the top 10 cereals consumed in the U.S. and how much you’d have to eat to reach Dr. Sears’ recommended intake.

As you can see, it takes a lot of cereal to reach Dr. Sears' recommended intake of 25 grams of protein per meal. In addition, higher intake of these popular cereals comes with excess calories and carbohydrates.

Zone Cereal was created to be a satisfying and nutritious breakfast balanced with protein, complex carbs, and essential fats to support healthy blood sugar and appetite suppression. Just 1 cup of Zone Cereal supplies 25 grams of protein and if you like your cereal with milk you only need to eat 3/4 cup  with 4-5 ounces of milk to reach your needs.
