    Cereal, especially whole grain or any NOT coated in sugar is a wonderful thing to eat when watching your weight.

    Depends on whether you are eating bran flakes or eating Sugar Smacks. And any cereal with nuts (like granola) are going to be high in fat. It also depends on if you are eating the recommended serving or the whole box. Be reasonable and eating cereal is a perfectly healthy way to get fiber and vitamins in your diet.

    ANYthing can make you fat if it has calories.

    This would depend on if you're eating it with milk, and what kind of milk. How much sugar is in your cereal? Do you add sugar?

    If you stick with low fat or non fat milk and eat a cereal with no or very little sugar added, you shouldn't worry about it too much unless you're eating bowls and bowls of it every day.

    If you eat healthy cereal, like Shredded Wheat, it shouldn't make you fat. But if you eat unhealthy, sugar-coated cereal, or other unhealthy stuff then you will get fat.

    I recently went vegan, lost 38 pounds since March, and feel very healthy. Just eat healthy. Period.

    All depends....some cereal is very high in sugar and therefore high in fat. If you eat something like a lot of Total compared to a lot of Fruit Loops it wouldn't....unless you ate like 2 boxes a day

    Depends on what you mean by "cereal". If you mean something stuffed with sugar, then it isn't good for you, no! But even then, as long as it wasn't eaten all day and every day, it wouldn't do you that much harm. Try a healthier cereal such as muesli or Bran Flakes (or even just one that has reduced sugar).

    If you eat a small bowl for breakfast, it should be fine.... but most cereal is loaded with sugar and carbs; and don't really add anything in the way of nutrition. A bowl of Cheerios or shredded wheat would be the best choice.......

    You sort of left a blank question there - Do you mean eating in moderation - once in the morning, or do you mean sitting down and eating a whole box at a time? Could you be more specific?
