    who cares if it is? you arent eating it for the protein..........you're probably eating it because it isnt processed and has a bunch of soluble fiber and omega 3s, and tastes amazing.
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    If you noticed, "just an FYI" towards the end of my sentence. No need to be a wise ass. The reason I brought it up in the first place is because of others posting about its protein content. Hence "just an FYI".

    Thank you.

    great. i noticed that the first and second time you mentioned the soy protein for 'informational purposes'. in both cases it was irrelevant. there is no harm in eating small amounts of soy protein.


    just fyi.

    How much Soy do you need to eat before it screws up your testosterone? I'm assuming (and hoping) more than 1 or 2 bowls a day of cereal.

    Ok, glad to see you were paying attention.

    Never did I say there was harm in eating soy protein and no, it was not irrelevant. It completely pertained to the subject matter.

    Who are you to say what is and isnt relevant?

    I'm not looking for a pissing contest here, just don't come into a thread disrespecting someone that you may disagree with.

    I use to use soy all the time when I had problems digesting dairy products. It never hindered my gains or anything; then I switched to muscle milk since it is lactose free.

    As for favorite cereal, I think tomorrow when its my carb refeed, I'm going to try about 5 different kinds of cereal. My cafeteria here has like 10 different flavors. Last week I had about 5 bowls of honeycomb, 2 captain crunch, 1 fruit loops.

    This week: rice krispies, count chocola, fruity pebbles, captain crunch, and I have to dig into some honeycomb, too. Refeeds are all I have to look forward to all week, so I think everything I'm going to eat through, thoroughly.

    Reeses's Puffs, Frosted Mini Wheat (the strawberry ones too), Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Squares (the wal-mart kind haha!), hell, whatever I get the craving for when I'm on the cereal aisle really. Used to eat it more often, but now it's usually just a treat or for before bed when dinner didn't fill me up.

    umm i usually have regular corn flakes, instead of milk i just make a light vanilla protein shake and mix it with the cereal, it tastes great. I also happen to be very fond of frosted flakes and fruity pebbles lol

    the issue with dry boxed extruded cereals like cheerios is the extrusion process. The process in which the cereal is formed/shaped. You know those nice little "O's" , "squares" whatever.. This process utilizes high heat and high pressure - damages the proteins and fatty acids. Dry boxed cereals are like margarine and trans fats; highly processed with adverse metabolic effects. Fresh eggs are a better breakfast - complete protein, and packed with nutrition.

    another bit I read on "TN"...

    "Most Breakfast Cereals — To us, cold breakfast cereals, even many of the brands touted as "healthy," are pure physique killers. Cereal is breakfast candy, nothing more, nothing less. In fact, corn flakes have a GI rating even worse than white bread! And how about these cereals that give you "energy", like Grape Nuts? Yep, at 47 carbs per teeny tiny serving (and what bodybuilder would eat one serving anyway?), most people would be in an insulin-induced coma by lunch.

    Here’s a piece of trivia for you. John Harvey Kellogg, the founder of Kellogg’s cereal, invented Corn Flakes to reduce sexual desire and curb the "epidemic" of masturbation. Besides "castrating" people with ****ty, high-carb breakfast foods, Kellogg also recommended that small boys (not infants) be circumcised without anesthetic so they would forever associate the penis with pain. He also thought that women should have their clitorises treated with carbolic acid to prevent what he called "abnormal excitement." As a side note, Sylvester Graham invented the Graham Cracker believing it would also diminish male sexual desire.

    Now tell me, do you really want to eat a food designed to make you a Testosterone-free eunuch?

    All that said, there are a couple of good cereals out there, but not many. All Bran and Fiber One make decent oatmeal replacements, just eat some protein with them. All Bran Extra Fiber only has 50 calories a serving and 13 grams of fiber, almost four times as much as oatmeal!"

    ^^^I'd be careful with the old fibre, whilst it's great for digestive health, there is some evidence to show that it can negatively affect testosterone levels especially if not enough total and saturated fat is consumed in the diet.

    Moderate fibre intake (~40g NSP/day) is more than enough.

    I have to agree though on your point regarding poor breakfast cereals. I prefer making my own 'cold' cereals (ie. muesli) but I find them to be very unsatisfying in terms of hunger control, a bowl of hot porridge seems to sit in my stomach like a brick and keep my hunger at bay.

    Porridge + whey forever! The breakfast of kings
