I was reading an article from yahoo today and found that The Food Channel recently conducted a survey that found that two-thirds of us eat breakfast at home, which means that the choices we make at the supermarket today will determine how we start tomorrow.  We’ve already crunched the numbers. All you need to do is crunch the delicious food!

DID YOU KNOW? You don’t need to make big changes to your diet to lose 10, 20, or even 30 pounds. Change how you look and feel—fast and forever—with the 25 Best Nutrition Secrets Ever!

#7: WORST HOT CEREAL
Nature’s Path Organic Instant Hot Oatmeal, Apple Cinnamon (1 packet)
210 calories
2.5 g fat (0 g saturated)
14 g sugar

Nature’s Path attributes its sweetness to “organic evaporated cane juice.” Translation: sugar. Each packet in the box contains as much sugar as a scoop of Edy’s Espresso Chip ice cream.

Eat This Instead!
Kashi GoLean Instant Hot Cereal, Truly Vanilla (1 packet)
150 calories
2 g fat
6 g sugar

DID YOU KNOW? Sleepy women eat an extra 328 calories per day, according a new study from the New York Obesity Research Center.
#6 Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Maple Sausage Links (3 links)
210 calories
19 g fat (6 g saturated)
520 mg sodium

This truly is the weakest link. Three measly logs of sausage aren’t are going to do much for your appetite, but they are going to stuff your belly with 19 grams of animal fat.

Eat This Instead!
Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Turkey Sausage Links (3 links)
110 calories
7 g fat (2 g saturated)
390 mg sodium

#5: WORST CEREAL
General Mills Oatmeal Crisp Hearty Raisin (1 cup)
240 calories
2.5 g fat (0.5 saturated)
20 g sugar

Oatmeal Crisp . . . it certainly sounds healthy, right? But upon closer inspection, this may actually be the most deceptive item on this entire list. It offers no frosting or marshmallows, yet it still manages to pack in more sugar than either Lucky Charms or Frosted Flakes.

Eat This Instead!
Kashi GoLean (1 cup)
140 calories
1 g fat (0 g saturated)
6 g sugar

Bonus Tip: You stay full longer when you swap out sugar for fiber, and we’ll show you how to do it with ease right here: The 24 Best and Worst Cereals in America.

#4: WORST WAFFLE
Nature’s Path Homestyle Frozen Waffles (2 waffles)
270 calories
10 g fat (1.5 g saturated)
5 g sugar
2 g fiber

When it comes to frozen waffles, it’s what you serve on top and on the side that typically makes it a healthy breakfast.

Eat This Instead!
Van’s Natural Foods Lite Waffles (2 waffles)
140 calories
2 g fat
4 g sugar
