I eat a couple of the cereals listed, the Multi-Grain Cheerios and the Crunchy Corn Bran. I eat the Cheerios with a banana and 1% milk before cycling because its light enough on my stomach before exercise and a good balance of carbs and protein with low fat. I buy the Crunchy Corn Bran a few times a year just to mix up the other cereals, mainly for dh.

2-3 times a week I eat a high fiber cereal that doesn't make the cut per that article because the 1 cup serving has too many calories and carbs, at 210 calories and 40g carb (and 9 g protein). It has 9g fiber and 7g sugars. If the serving size was reduced to 3/4 cup it might qualify. Its not sweet so I add some banana, its so dense that I feel full for hours which is good...sometimes I get hungry soon after the Cheerios. Its called Optimum Slim cereal by Nature's Path. Its available at some grocery stores, and some health food store type of places.

I'll have to check out the Trader Joe's multi-grain O's and the ones with berries.

I love the multigrain cheerios, and often eat Fiber One Cereal.
