Everyone is different - for some, the carbs in cereal just don't fit into their plan, or may be a trigger food. For some, like me, cereal makes me dump worse than anything else so I avoid it like the plague. If you don't suffer any ill effects and can fit the carbs into your plan, I think a whole grain cereal is fine - especially the ones higher in protein. If your plan says it's ok - seems like you should enjoy!

I have cereal most mornings; however, I use just enough milk to wet it. If you're gulping down leftover milk at the end you're kind of violating the rule against drinking with your meal. Otherwise, a nice whole grain cereal full of protein and fiber can be a great way to start your day.
Only ice cream is worse than cereal for me - makes me soooo ill, even now! I have tried everything from steel cut oats to weetabix to honey nut cheerios and the result is always one (or all) of the following - major dumping/carb coma/diahhrea!
If it works for you, and you are not drowning it in milk, then I'd say go for it as an occasional breakfast.

I put 1/3 cup of dry, high fiber cereal into my Skyr one day a week. I eat oatmeal made with water one day a week as well.

I started eating cereal a couple of months ago with "just enough" milk. I eat Kashi Go Lean Original cereal. It has 13 grams of protein for a cup of cereal. I couldn't eat that much until recently (of course I'm 20 weeks pregnant). I was really craving Lucky Charms so this was a nice substitute lol. I think if it doesn't bother you and you don't go overboard on the milk you'll be okay, but that's just my opinion. I totally can see how it can be a trigger food so use caution.
