A past issue of Food Technology discussed food science and nutrition research findings regarding how to reformulate the calorie level and taste of breakfast foods to help dieters feel satisfied on fewer calories.
This may be easier said than done because if the product tastes too good, people will want to eat too much of it but if it doesn't taste good enough, they may not want any of it. Also, one method discussed, pumping cereals with air or water to increase the volume but not the calories, could have negative effects on digestion.

Building a Better Breakfast to Manage Weight
Dr. Diet weighs in:
It seems that food processors are trying to create new breakfast products that will help people lose weight when the truth is we already know ways to lower our calorie intake and increase our feelings of fullness with existing products.
For example, by adding nonfat milk to a high fiber cereal or oatmeal and topping with fruit (and maybe a few nuts), you'll get the benefits of a lower calorie, higher fiber breakfast that will keep you feeling full longer. Or - another good option is low fat yogurt with fruit and nuts and maybe some cottage cheese mixed in.
Impressive results from a Nielsen's National Eating Trends Survey found that women who ate cereal on a regular basis weighed about 9 pounds less than those who ate cereal rarely or not at all. And men who ate breakfast weighed about 6 pounds less than men who didn't eat breakfast.
Eating breakfast every day was also seen as one of the most important predictors of long-term weight maintenance among participants in the National Weight Control Registry.
This may give you more reasons to stop and pause the next time you walk by that cereal aisle in the grocery store.
