    No. Your body needs a variety of proteins and vitamins to stay alive. Not to mention all the sugars in cereal will be stored as fat if not used.

    I would not say good for you or bad for you mostly depending on the kind of cereal you are eating.

    I mix Fiber One (has lots of fiber and no real sugar) and Special K (has 25% protein) with skim milk (no fat) and add flavored whey protein (to increase the protein percentage of the meal) of course I only eat this before or after a workout.

    Try this or something similar look for high fiber, high protein, and low or no sugar, use skim or 1% milk, and because cereal, even with the milk, is not enough protein I would get some whey or soy protein to add to or drink on the side. Possibly add a little bananna or other fruit. but don't eat this all day, you need balance in your diet.

    Im not sure about EVERY meal everyday..but I do know there's like a Total or Special K diet you can do. I think you're supposed to replace 2 meals a day with a bowl of their cereal and you'll lose weight. I just forget which brand it is. But no, It's not bad for you...as long as the cereal is healthy and not loaded with sugar. :)

    Of course not. A person would not be getting the balanced meals necessary to obtain good health. Besides, many cereals are high in sugar, very bad for you and some are empty calories. Good cereals are based on Oats, Barley, etc.

    The body needs a balance of nutrients. It is not good for all your body systems to only eat one food as there is no one food to supply all needed proteins, fats, carbos, and vitamins/minerals. Imbalances eventually cause heart papitations, more extensive heart damage, kidneys don't function properly, food doesn't digest well because the intestines are overloaded with too much fiber on a cereal only diet, the brain needs a lot of things to keep us thinking well and making good decisions, our senses are affected when we only eat one food, imbalances in our electrolytes occur causing dizziness, fainting, etc Plus usually one gets tired of eating one food for the rest of his/her life. It's just not feasible to eat cereal every day and have a social life, so it would even interfere with social relationships. Obsessive compulsive behavior, which usually a person who only eats one food is exhibiting plus he/she will have other OCD patterns, is symptomatic of deeper seated problems and the person needs to seek psychiatric help. Everything in our lives demands balance of everything if we are going to live into old age and be healthy and happy.

    well you are supposed to have all of the food groups in your daily diet...chances are if you are only eating cereal that you are only getting starches sugars and wheats and grains. You need to incorporate protiens!

    only if its special K, bran, or muesli. but hopefully your eating other food groups as well as the cereal. you can also add berries like raspberries or blueberries to your cereal to get your fruit servings in.

    no its not good one meal for breakfast is good but your body needs other nutrition to have energy to run perfectly and you need fruit meant in protein's and other things not just cereal
