For some reason, no matter what cereal I’m in the mood for, Fruit Loops with marshmallows or Special K almond. No matter if I eat with milk or mostly dry as snack, I feel like I just keeping eating without getting full. And no it doesn’t really happen with any other food. It’s not filling, though of course it is garbage and full of sugar, at least the good ones. But it’s like I could keep going. Ever get that way?

Re: Why does it seem like you can have at least 2-3+ bowls of cereal?

I love cereal and eat a lot of it. I don't like drinking the remaining milk, so I always keep adding cereal in order to finish the milk and usually end up eating the equivalent of 1.5 to 2 bowls every time. I'm not really into the all-sugar cereals though. I like a crunchy combo of Crispix, Chex, and Bran Flakes. I'm also a big fan of this stuff:


It's super crunchy, has a flavor profile similar to Lucky Charms, and has plenty of whole grains and fiber.

It's sugar loaded carbs. It doesn't fill the gut unless you drink the milk and thats questionable, your body knows it burns off quickly and it has what plants crave.

I buy high fiber cereal or granola. Those junk cereals like Apple Jacks or Captain Crunch are just sugar pasted on top of fluff, so no wonder you can eat three or four bowls at one sitting. Mind you, I am a big fat slob but it's not from cereal.

Try to eat 2-3 bowls of Grape Nuts, without sugar. I find that half a cup to one cup is plenty.


Froot Loops is 44% sugar by weight. It's basically cotton candy with a little corn starch to hold it together.

I donít eat cereal often but occasionally Iíll have a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats. I donít recall ever eating more that one bowl.

Now, if you were to stick a box of Fruity Pebbles in front of me o could probably eat At least half the box in one sitting. I guess luckily I havenít eaten those in at least 20 years.

If you put froot loops under a hydraulic press, you would wind up with a thin sheet of nothing much.

Re: Why does it seem like you can have at least 2-3+ bowls of cereal?

Thereís just something satisfying about a bowl of cereal. I like a bunch of different kinds too. The sugary ones are great, but I also like the more simple ones like Crispix, Chex, the various Bunches of Oats flavors, and more. Itís an easy quick snack. Generally I stick to one bowl, but on occasion Iíll down two.

If you put a potato,or gummi bears, or a bowling ball, or a laptop under a hydraulic press, you would wind up with a thin sheet, too.

That's kinda the point of a hydraulic press.

I love that channel. Also, their other channel, Beyond the Press, where they do stupid things like replacing a car's wheels with sawblades and driving it on ice.

That's the kind I usually eat too, usually one bowl, no milk (I've never liked milk in cereal, I think it's disgusting ). I haven't eaten any of the real sugary crap in decades, they taste way too sickly sweet (and horribly fake) to me now.

If I want a bowl of cereal it's usually Raisin Bran Crunch or Captain Crunch. Once in awhile I'll grab some Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I load them up with milk and drink it all. I don't recall ever needing two bowls.

I will pack a small container of dry cereal to take to work which is usually Honey Nut Cheerios with an occasional box of Fruit Loops or grab some of the kids Reece's Puffs which are great dry.

Only cereal I can eat now. I usually have a serving size (sometimes a little extra) and for lunch only

I only eat Total cereal (or the store-brand enriched whole-grain equivalent) with unsweetened vanilla almondmilk. Since it tastes pretty much like wet cardboard, after one bowl I've had enough, though I do tend to make myself eat 2-3 bowls a day.

Fruit loops with marshmallows? What kind of vile sorcery is that?

I like cereal, but only ever have it as a snack in between dinner and bedtime. Probably not the best time to be scarfing down sugary carbs.

Anymore I usually get Raisin Bran, All Bran, or the probiotic granola at Costco. I put it in a bowl, pour in some almond milk, and some peaches and juice.

One bowl always fills me up.

So yeah, it's the choice of cereal and how it's prepared.
