An Excellent and Healthy Choice for Anyone’s Diet

A quality product from Bio-familia, a Swedish company that developed “Birchermüesli” a product so popular and successful that made the name Muesli famous all over the world.

If you need a high fiber and protein snack option for your diet, this is absolutely a very good product. You can’t go wrong and the best of all: excellent taste and quality, and for a pack of six this comes at a good value. The fact that this cereal is low-fat makes a good product even better if you are trying to lose some weight or wanting to keep in shape.

Sometimes your diet will require you eat frequently and consciously, and in those cases you need to have a snack at hand when you get hungry, in order to keep your metabolism high all day long. In such cases finding a good and balance option could be hard. I love this 6-pack and I always have one at home an another pack at the office. I try to eat five or more times a day, so in my case having a healthy snack at hand wherever I am when I get hungry is a priority.

Since you are checking this product I have to guess that you are probably a person that cares about what you eat, either because you are interested in losing weight, getting in better shape or just be healthier and keep in good shape, so I will share my own experience in the weight loss game and staying in shape game

My own successful personal experience in weight loss is based on strategies to boost metabolism. Don’t stress yourself, eat frequently, eat just what you need each time, and choose wisely what you are going to eat, supplement your diet. Yet simple and it works. I loss more than 200 lbs and shrink my waist (from 44 to 32), and I have been able to keep in good shape since then. Every single aspect of my life has improved since then.

Keep in mind that a good diet is just part of the equation, you also need a plan that helps you keep on track and monitor your condition. Based on my own personal experience I can recommend some tools that you may want to consider, to establish your own strategies for boosting your metabolism, loosing weight, and even more important keeping that weight off. They are:

– “Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss” by Mark Hyman. A practical an realistic plan for weigh loss.

– “The ABS Diet”, which is another very practical, readable, insightful, and inspirational book, that also includes an exercise plan.

– A Body Fat Monitor or Scale. This will help you monitor your progress, to assure that the weight you are loosing is fat (fat lost = increased metabolism) and not muscle, water or bone mass (decreased metabolism).

– A Heart Rate Monitor Wrist Watch. This is an excellent tool that will help you monitor and control your Heart Rate in order to keep yourself in a burning fat state (increased metabolism).

– “Heart Monitor Training for the Complete Idiot”, a primer on the use of Heart Rate Monitors for health improvement or weight control.

If you want to star focusing only on your diet, the first two may be worth considering. If you exercise, or want to start doing it right, the last threee are for you. If you do both, all the recommended options can improve your results.

I am 39 years old, With the help of the tools I just mentioned not only I went fro size 44 to size 32 pants, but also obtained substantial benefits that included weight control, cardiovascular improvements, lowered blood pressure, and improved muscular-skeletal strength and flexibility, but also the myriad of mental and psychological benefits derived from being in the best shape of my life.

Get this 6-pack of Low-fat Muesli to help your 6-pack ABS.

Too Sweet

After reading the positive reviews I decided to try this cereal. I’m not impressed. It’s too sweet with lots of sugar. There are 14g of sugars per 2/3 cup serving. Some ingredients like the dried fruit and oats are hard while others like the cereal flakes are soft and absorb milk. If you let the hard parts soften up with milk the flakes turn into mush.

Familia makes a lot of great cereals and I’m surprised they let this one out the door. They must think Americans are sugar-crazed Coca Cola addicts. I really like the Familia Low-Fat Musli and suggest you buy that instead.

On the plus side this cereal has a lot of dried fruit. It tastes good if you eat it quickly before it gets to soggy.

Tasty Granola

The granola itself is very tasty and I like the idea of lower fat. Only problem is the raisins are way too hard. They don’t add anything to flavor and someone could chip/break a tooth if not careful. Take the raisins out and it would be great.

Good taste but hard bits dangerous to teeth.

I really wish I could say I loved this as it does taste good. the hard fruit bits just make it a danger to your teeth! I should have listened to the earlier review!!!

Best Darn Cereal Ever ………

I bought this on a whim – trying other granola’s that were sweet yet tasty. I like to mix granola with cranberries that are also very sweet. Finally I found a granola that is extremely tasty without the sweetness. Once I acquisition unsweetened cranberries I will create a powerhouse of flavor and enjoyment. Recommended – Hope this helps

Low fat yet, great flavor

I am a mixer at heart. I love my oatmeal every morning
with a hearty measure of Familia granola tossed in.
Very tasty

Lighter than others

This is a light granola but tasts fine. If you’re into the heavy granola’s then this isn’t for you, but if you like a many grain filling ceral, then this is for you.

Delicious

And a great savings when you buy through Amazon. Sells for $6 a box in the stores. Great with yogurt. Lots of tasty, crunchy grains and fruit.

Delicious!

It’s totally suitable for me, full of a lot of flavors, making breakfast better than just milk and one-flavor cereal. And it’s delicious if you eat it like snacks, without milk. Highly recommended!
