I want to do the Kellogg's Cereal diet. How much should I eat per serving (should I measure it, 1 cup exactly?) How many times a day? And what other food should I eat besides that and what about snacks? I know veggies and stuff but what kind and how much? Are there any protein shakes or drinks I can buy that would be good? What's a good meal plan? (Breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, snack or breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and what should be the snacks and stuff?) I also work 8 hours a day, pushing carts and I don't want to be having to go take breaks to #%@&! or anything like that... but im willing.
I want to do the raisin brand, because that's the kind of cereal I love, is that good? Also what is the price estimate I'm looking at here? I don't want to go broke. Also what kind of milk should I use? Powdered, slim, what? It can't taste disgusting though...
I want a full plan if possible because I want to be fully commited and start losing some weight and then start eating right and healthy.
Also how should I get my vitamins in each day? The required amount of course and would be drinking like a 20 ounce bottle of orange juice each day be good or bad for the diet?
Oh and I'm 19 years old. 220LB (last I checked about a month or so ago) and 6'1 - 6'2.
Your BMI is 28.6 and your unadjusted RMR is 2,075. You have a reasonably active job. You should probably aim to consume 2100-2400 calories per day.
Orange juice is not an effective way of getting your vitamins. Take one multi-vitamin-mineral pill a day as "insurance" and then eat an appropriate and varied amount of solid fruits and vegetables. If you really like orange juice then fit one cup of it per day as a treat.
Skimmed milk has less (bad for you) saturated fat so that should be your choice (soy milk even healthier, in my opinion an acquired taste).
Raisin Bran is a whole grain cold cereal, making it a good choice amongst that group of foods.
Okay, just sayin' in advance that I know this is probably going to come off as being rude and that's totally not my intention but - seriously, that is not a "diet" it's a marketing ploy designed to sell more cereal! You can put the same (or less) time/effort/money into simply calculating the amount of calories/exercise you need to lose weight (which Nir has helpfully done for you in terms of calories) and just buying a variety of food (lean meat, veggies, fruit, whole grains) to meet your caloric needs.
