I scramble an egg w/some salsa and top it with Monteray Jack cheese!!!! I also eat cherios...i try to stay away from things like cap crunch, etc. But cereal makes me feel heavy  almost lethargic so i dont eat it much!

I had my RNY last July and I remember eating nothing but oatmeal and cream of wheat for a very long time.  After several months I was able to start eating Special K again.  Just stay away from all that sugar cearal.  Good luck.  Tracy

I am ready for cereal yet, but there are some people that do.  I have heard that Kashi High Protein s great and with the milk delivers more than 20gms of protein...

Hi there, Isn't this high in carbs though? I use the special K protein cereal and was looking for something similar for variety, but i'm pretty sure it's alot higher in the carbs area. Do you know for sure?? Any imput would be appreciated. Thanks, Stacie

I eat Special K Protein plus with Skim Milk Plus which is approximately 20 grams of protein.  With a protein serving this high the carbs are worth it - in my opinion.

Hi, I'm a little over 5 months out. I eat cereal everyday. I either have the new special K protein cereal (10 grams protein), with 2% smart milk and 1/2 banana. Or the newest Kashi cereal that has 13 grams of protein per serving. Milk, 1/2 banana. I have been eating that for over a month every morning. On the weekends I make a two egg omelette with cheese. Sometimes some salsa on it. I can't drink regular milk, it's too heavy so is 2 %.  Hope that helped.  Good Luck, Diane
