I will eat the same amount of cereal as before and most of it doesn't have a whole lot of fiber in it anyway, so it doesn't matter anyway.

I don't believe this and it is because most cereal is full of sugar, not healthy fiber.

And P.S. most (but not all) cereal does not have much fiber and is basically junk food with vitamins thrown in.

It depends on how it is processed. Whole grains (with the bran left on) have a lot of B vitamins and fiber.

I eat cooked oatmeal 2-3 times a week; plus other grains. My intake will probably stay about the same regardless of the study. (Staying the same should have been an option in the poll.)

I eat a protein bar daily for breakfast. It has fiber which helps to slow the absorption of sugar and stabilizes my blood sugar.I don't plan to eat more cereal. Most are empty calories I don't need.

It depends on the brand of protein bar and cereal. In some cases, there isn't much difference. Some protein bars have soy protein isolate (whatever that is) and nuts, some have oats.
RudyCat

There are better sources of fibre without the sugar that that protein bar has.

All cereals aren't bad for you. The point is you need to turn that cereal box around and see the nutrition label. Look for grams of sugar per serving, look for whole grains in the ingredient label, look for grams of fiber per serving. I'm sure you can find several that compare with your protein bar at 1/2 the cost per serving of those spendy breakfast on the go bars. 8 oz of milk has 10 grams of protien and a natural source of calcium which will make it a healthy breakfast.

While I have no dubt eating fiber helps reduce risk of death, though they really need to be more specific as to what it helps and I am willing to bet our taxpayer dollars went to fund this very vague study that told us what we already know which is why people are eating granola bars etc.

I do like cereal and I do believe the study, I'm still not going to eat more cereal because I don't feel like it.

Also, did Harvard really publish a study with results as vague as "reduced risk of death"?

What did you expect them to say. A "reduced risk of death" seems like a valid determination.

I have a diet of whole grains already. I commonly eat oatmeal, and refrain from heavily processed boxed cereals with 5 different types of sugar added. White bread should be banned. I always go for whole wheat. Yes they sell whole wheat french bread, as well as whole wheat tortillas. Also make a whole grain bread using flour from 4 different grains in bread machine, and it makes a great pizza dough as well.

You could very well be right about that. Most of the cereal on the market isn't comprised of whole grain, and tends to be loaded with sugars.... ie cherrios, Frosted flakes (flakes coated in sugar), Frosted mini wheats (mini wheats coated in sugar) etc etc.. Just flip that box to the nutrition panel and look at the grams of sugar per serving. Large cereal companies sure produce a lot of poor choices for breakfast, and their market shares have gone down.

I grew up fixing myself cheerios for breakfast lunch and dinner. I am aware of health benefits eating it, but to this day, that is one brand I will not touch. Others are meh, i still eat it though.

I would have to look into the matter more. I don't really eat cereal and would want to see the fact for myself. Especially with the whole gluten free vs. anti-grains war that goes on with things like the Paleo way of eating for example.

You know the Atkins diet is one of the most unhealthy ones there is right? Especialy for women. There's so many things you are missing out of in your diet if you go on Atkins and you are at risk for a lot of diseases because of it.

He was on to something though. I am paleo and it works great for me. I feel better eating paleo. It is not a low carb diet. You can eat carbs on it. So you get every thing you need. You just leave a few things out, but I do get it is not for every one. All bodies are not the same and plus not many can stay away from most of the foods on do not eat list.

Yes, increased FIBER has many health benefits, and AM or anytime cereal is a good, easy, way to get it, but actually, ANY way that you increase your fiber, not necessarily fiber rich cereal--not just any cereal--is advantageous. I'd have to read the study results myself to see what kind of fiber they are talking about and the recommended grams.
