    Kellogg Cereal B4 a Ride?

    Does anyone enjoy any Kellogg cereals before/after rides? I remember reading somewhere that Lance used to eat CornFlakes before races, so it got me wondering if its common.

    By the way, I work for Kellogg's here in London Ontario, so that's why I ask.

    I'm sure you can pick the Kellogg's cereals that do not add sugar to the grain flake or whatever. I doubt corn flakes are the best choice. Various shredded wheats and bran flake usually are sold without the sugar, use a banana instead , or raisins.

    Definitely. I love how they try to market Spec K as a "health" food. All it is is Rice Krispies with a bit less sugar.

    A lot of people probably don't know this, but we own the Kashi line as well, they have great stuff. I just ate a bowl of it here at my desk.

    Not really. They are not filling enough, and have too much sugar and not enough fiber and protein. I enjoy oatmeal with flax bread for breakfast.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
    Stay calm and bring a towel.

    I honestly rarely eat the stuff myself. Even with unlimited and free access to it...I wish Kellogg's would buy out Quaker so I could have the same access with their products. Even Vector cereal is a far cry from a healthy breakfast.

    I fracking LOVE cereal.

    The Kashi stuff is really good, and is healthier than most cereals sold at supermarkets. Since Whole Foods is quite far away from where I live (relative to the time I get home), I'm stuck with sugary cereals for now. They haven't affected me yet, but I'm switching to Kashi when I get the chance (hopefully tonight or tomorrow).

    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    If it has what you need, eat it. Eat food, not brands (even if you work for the brand).

    I'm a peanut-butter-and-jam fan myself for mornings when I need an energy boost for breakfast. Next time I'll buy the sugarless peanut butter.
