    I have been having two Chocolate Wheatabix for breakfast, but I am finding it doesn't fill me up enough so I add a handful of cornflakes to it but still not full up! Maybe I am just being greedy.. :p

    porridge is a lot better for a satisfied full feeling. i got me some chocolate brownie ones at 137 each (most of them are very similar in calories), use half water and half milk and you should be well under 200.

    rice crispies, coco pops and sugar puffs are all good because 30gs of them seem like a lot more compared to other cereals. pretty sure all 3 of them are under 200 cals too xx

    There is no chance of rice crispies etc filling me up without a humongous bowl!

    Oatso simple original porridge sachet made with 160ml semi skimmed milk is 183 calories, i mix about 50 cals of raisens in it too though.

    Very very filling i promise, especiall if you get a good glug of water too :D

    Oat so simple is on offer at Tesco. I know cos I've just been and bought 2 boxes. 2 for £3. There is a new flavour too, honey and almond. Looking forward to trying that in the morning.

    I find that the porridge generaly fills me up pretty well, but if need be I snack on some raisins or a small banana. :)

    Is porridge nice? I've never actually tried it, hated the look of it since I was young!

    I definitely agree with the oatso simple suggestions....fantastic stuff and apart from weetabix with a banana chopped in, it is the only cereal that fills me up and actually satiates me till lunchtime.

    So so quick and easy to prepare and YES they are LOVELY xx

    oats so simple come in that many flavours its hard not to like at least one. I find the plain one a bit boring myself, but a bit o sweetener will liven it up! Apple and blueberry is my ultimate favourite!

    Cal Counting @ 1550cals / day + following Dr Stephen Gullo's theories about knowing your weaknesses
    Just my experience here okay - cereals make me hungrier, in the end I decided to have yoghurt at breakfast and a bowl of cereal at night (to *ahem* keep things regular) - also a toasted croissant with some low-fat cheese worked better for me despite the hype about white bread making you hungry yadda yadda.

    But I wasted ages eating bran flakes (which I love) and feeling starved an hour later, so I'm passing that on fwiw. I feel kind of disgusted with myself for letting the opinions of so-called experts take higher priority than my own common sense and observation, I'm sure cereals work great as a filling breakfast for a lot of people but I'm just not one of 'em. :rolleyes:
