I used to eat the same thing, but now rotate it with cheese, egg and porridge.. I love my porridge but it is essential to keep the stomach guessing so it doesn't survive on the usual and make a plateau.. The stomach like the other muscles is a muscle and it needs to be teased to keep working sharp all the time.. I will also grab things I like less often just to keep my metabolism in high gear. A couple of days eating non regular things shifts my weight back down if it starts creeping up.. The body thinks oh hell this is new, I better get off my hands and process it.. If you keep feeding the stomach the same, oh hum oh hum don't have to work I know that food well..
It's okay to eat the same thing every morning as long as it keeps you full!

I don't think eating cereal everyday is bad at all-especially the kinds you listed. Now if it were sugar-laden cereal with whole instead of 1% or skim milk I'd say you might want to change it up but you're definitely eating the right kind of cereal! I love cereal too-fiber one honey clusters, grape nut flakes and instant packets of maple brown sugar oatmeal are my favorites :)

Do you count oatmeal as cereal? I always have 2 Quaker lower-sugar packs with 1/2 cup blueberries. I don't like milk so I mix Activia Light yogurt with it. I vary the oatmeal and yogurt flavors so I don't get totally tired of it.

thats not a bad thing! i eat cereal every morning too! i love frosted shredded wheat. which has alot of fiber.. just find something that is kind of healthy...not something like coco puffs or reeses puffs lol. those arent really good for you but cheerios are good for you so dont worry
I typically eat cereal each day. I switch though between a Kashi cereal and grape nuts. The only days I'll eat the same cereal in a row is when I've ran out of one and haven't gotten to the store to buy a new box.
I don't think there is anything wrong though with eating the same cereal each day as long as you are mixing up your other meals from day to day. I believe as long as you are making some variations to your meals from day to day overall then you should be fine with your weight loss. I think eating the same thing every day gets your body stagnant to where you can't lose (or something like that - I'm not the pro).
I don't think it's bad to eat cereal daily. I don't eat it simply because it doesn't keep me full for very long and I'm never satisfied just with a serving, but if you're satisfied then I don't see anything wrong with it.
