Some of them don't look too bad really. If a person eats 3 of them at the normal mealtimes (whatever that is) and then 2 more as a snack somewhere during the day, the total day's calories would be 1,500 or above. And, my guess is that they probably wouldn't be hungry.

a huge problem is ignorance...there are too many people i run into that think it's best to eat three meals a day. they look at those meals and think "That's only 900 calories a day!" "That would NEVER FILL ME UP!"

Try eating 5 or 6 of them...

There are people who, when dieting, think it's is optimum to eat ONE meal a day...seriously, children should be taught in school now that it's best to eat like 5-6 small meals a day...

And please don't give me that "i'm too busy" nonsense...

We have to reverse this trend of bad eating, especially in united states...

No-one has commented on the claim, if I remember rightly, that the average American eats 3,800 calories a day. Is that really the case? Or is it gross exaggeration?

No idea about the claim, but they all look good to be. A banana is often too filling as a breakfast for me, so taking the banana from theceral breakfast and having it as a midmoring snack would make me happy. Its actually a brilliant reference, and a resurring guide, I'm glad you posted it Deadly Sushi.

Thanks Deadly Sushi
I'm with most that says those meals would actual fill me up. I think I'll give these a shot and see if I can lose any weight.

I can't say if it is factual, but a trip to a mall makes the claim seem plausible!
