The Nasty Truth about Cereals and Weight Gain

The majority of American households in the US start their day with a bowl of cereal.

It is almost an American tradition that has caught on all over the world.

There are many people who believe that “healthy cereals” are a good way to start the day. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The cereal companies have the masses believing that cereals are healthy and nutritious. This is excellent marketing and brings in millions of dollars to these companies at the expense of the people’s health.

The hard truth is that cereals are probably one of the worst foods you could eat.

Firstly, cereals consist of a very high level of GMOs.

What are GMOs you ask?

They stand for genetically modified organisms. Wikipedia states that GMOs are genetically modified foods (or GM foods) are foods produced from organisms that have had specific changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering.


These techniques have allowed for the introduction of new crop traits as well as a far greater control over a food's genetic structure than previously afforded by methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding.

Basically, to summarize, cereals contain genetically modified corn, canola, soy and traces of pesticides.

The cereal companies do their best to market cornflakes as a “natural” product. The only reason they do that is because there is barely anything natural about cereals.

The GMOs in the cereals create a myriad of health problems such as liver and digestive problems, allergies, fertility problems, obesity and other health issues.

If you’re planning on losing weight or just being healthy, you will avoid cereals at all costsincluding the “healthy ones”.

Flooding your body with toxic food will create inflammation in your body.

Yes, cereals are toxic because they are produced through an extrusion process. The extrusion process is a complicated one where the grains are altered and the proteins end up denatured.

Synthetic vitamins, an oil coating and sugar are added to keep the cereals crispy, tasty and give the impression that they are healthy. In reality, the synthetic vitamins are useless.


Your body needs real vitamins from real wholesome foods. Not synthetic stuff that just pollutes your body.

Your body is a temple. Not a woodshed. Treat it with care, dump the cereals and do not allow children to eat this toxic food.

If you’re planning on losing weight, cereals will definitely hinder your progress because they are almost totally composed of refined carbohydrates. These will cause insulin spikes and result in fat storage.

When your goal is losing weight, you really need to keep your insulin levels stable.

So what should you eat?

Here are 3 healthy breakfast recipes you SHOULD eat (plus the 3 WORST “healthy” breakfasts you must avoid).
