A Bagel and Cream Cheese a Day
May 13, 2022 3:45pm CST
Over the last couple of weeks, I seem to have acquired a real liking for bagels and cream cheese for I have had one each day for my breakfast. When you figure that a medium-sized plain bagel has about 275 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of fiber, and 11 grams of protein that isn't too bad. Add to that the cream cheese I slather on each half I come away with about 100 calories, 29.3 grams of fat, 0 fiber, and 2 grams of protein. So, all together I am getting about 13 grams of protein, 1.5 grams of fiber, and all in about 375 calories. Plus I am getting a bit of sodium with these too. I have to go back to the bowl of Spoon-Sized Shredded Wheat I was having. A bowl of these is about 170 calories with 2.5 grams of fat, 13.7 grams of protein, and 6 grams of fiber. That isn't even adding in the milk. Ouch! Yeah, tomorrow it's shredded wheat for me.

Modern-day bagels are nothing like the ones my uncles would bring from some deli in Toronto when I was a kid... they were solid and took some chewing. I just drank a 540 mL/19 fl.oz. can of tomato juice... really hit the spot.

Wow I'm impressed how you know the exact calories and fats that are into them. I just never counted how much goes into my body. I lost 3kg from 56kkg down to 53kg in two weeks. And that's for skipping rice every dinner and just eating salad along with other food. But I eat a lot of food. Especially during lunch time.
