April 09, 2019Reviewer: Timothy in Connecticut* The flavor is definitely a step down from Hi-Lo. If you're the kind of person who can't stand bland cereal you will no doubt be frustrated by the change, but I can live with it. It's still got a satisfying crunch to it, and as is the case with most bland, high-fiber cereals, the best way to enjoy it is as a platform for other flavors.
My personal preferred way to eat it is with cold milk or cream, some dried blueberries or freeze dried strawberries, and a spoonful of Stevia (the crystal "table sugar" variety). Adding the fruit and and stevia makes for a very refreshing breakfast with a bit of flavor and texture variety. I always buy the plain version because I like mixing things up with different fruits.
Since Stay Steady is lower in net carbs than Hi-lo, I can at least enjoy the opportunity to add berries for extra flavor without compromising my net carb goals, which is why I give it 4 stars instead of 3. If you just want to eat it plain you will probably be disappointed, but when prepared as I suggested it can be a very satisfying low-carb breakfast option.This review is specific to StaySteady Cereal, Original
1 of 1 people found the following review helpfulMarch 28, 2019Reviewer: A customer in Indiana* I enjoyed the HiLo cereal much better than this replacement- the reason I rated a 4- the Stevia in the cereal is noticeable- (I do not like Stevia). Other than this- Stay Steady has good crunch and flavor- and stays crunching in milk. I will buy againThis review is specific to StaySteady Cereal, Original
December 03, 2018Reviewer: Arthur in Texas* Like several others, I found the new StaySteady cereal not as tasty as the original Hi-Lo version. Not bad, just not as good. The bits of pecan were tasty but overall it just wasn't what I remembered the Hi-Lo as tasting. Would buy again very occasionally, as something different, but not as a regular item. As far as recommending to others, I would go with trying a box first to see if you or anyone in your family likes it.This review is specific to StaySteady Cereal, Maple Pecan

3 of 3 people found the following review helpfulNovember 01, 2018Reviewer: Valerie in Illinois* At first I was upset that Nutritious Living did away with their Hi Lo cereal. I am a carb counting diabetic and that cereal was good for my style of eating. When they came out with the StaySteady cereal I was distressed to read that it had double the carbs but I decided to try it.
What I found on closer examination was that the reason the carb count had doubled was because they had also doubled the serving size. The 60 grams of cereal recommended on the panel is totally ridiculous.
If you are trying this cereal stick with the recommended 30 grams from the old Hi Lo panel and you'll be fine with your blood sugar. The texture and taste are similar enough to the old product.
