Cereal is the most convenient breakfast food, but those poor chaps on the Atkins diet are eating eggs and sausages most breakfasts, with very few cereal like breakfast items available. There are some with low net carbs, but certainly nothing like this for the phase in period. Who wouldn't like a nice bowl of "Meaties" which would be meat based flakes or chunks. Just add water, it makes its own gravy.

       [don] I can see where you're coming from, honestly I can. Trouble is, this just sounds revolting.

       Mad Cow Flakes! Now with more tongue!!

       dried cat food?   

       k, don't look at me when you say that!

       So I’m on a diet that allows me to eat as much bacon and eggs as I want, and I’m having cereal for breakfast? That doesn’t make any sense.
AO, Jan 23 2004
  

       Yes, but you are now bored of eggs and bacon. You want meat cereal drowned in meat milk.
k_sra, Jan 23 2004
  

       People Laughed at Dr Kellog. why stop at cereal why not meat flour! then we could have meat bread, meat cakes and even meat donuts. MMMM meaty

       dbsousa's link got me thinking. I was originally thinking just meat flavored, red meat and pork mixture. But that's a great idea! Like how kid cereal that tastes mostly like sugar can be chocolate or fruity. Flavors could be bacon, ham, sausage, or steak and eggs. Or, if you're a little less traditional with your breakfast, pot roast, turkey, beef jerky, or even chili!

       Aw, shoot, sorry, this croissant has tons of carbs in it!

       As a gimmick it should be called mheaties

       mmmmm.... fish flakes

       But surely the whole point of the Atkin's diet (and any other diet) is to make you eat a bizarre and unpalatable combination of food and in doing so, make you eat less?
Therefore anything which makes the arbitrarily-contrived combination of food more like the food you're not allowed to eat will make you eat more.
hippo, Jan 24 2004
  

       Mmmm.... Meat milk. I love to eat meat. I'd just like the opposite of what [Don] suggested. Fruity cereals and normal looking milk made out of fresh meat.

       Nice link, [dbsousa]. My favorite is sausage pebbles.
k_sra, Jan 24 2004
  

       my mom was on a low carb diet once and just ate bits of fresh fruit in milk like cereal. She thought that was good. But I just have to fishbone a meat cereal idea.....yuck.

       Now that's advancement of the "human condition".....

       It seems everyone is trying to get in on the Atkins "gravy train" these days. (groan)

       // my mom was on a low carb diet once and just ate bits of fresh fruit in milk like cereal. //   

       That's odd, considering neither milk nor fresh fruit are particularly low-carb.

       //drowned in meat milk//   

       <giggles like a teenager>

       As if this thread didn't gross me out enough to begin with...

       *wipes tear* made me laugh all over again.
k_sra, Aug 02 2007
  

       I noticed [nick_n_uit]'s anno is the same as one of the products in the XKCD drawing (linked). Great minds...
