Cereal contains a lot of carbohydrates, as does any product made from wheat, oats, or any other grain. Sugary cereals usually don't contain much fiber and will undoubtedly cause a spike in blood sugar levels followed by a crash. They also do not keep the body full for very long. For example, regular corn flakes contain 24.3 grams of carbohydrates per cup, and 1.8 of those grams are sugars. Frosted flakes, on the other hand, contains 35.4 grams of carbohydrates per cup, 15 of which are sugars. Choose whole-grain cereals that contain fiber and the least amount of sugar.
