Phelps chooses Frosted Flakes – under fire from nutrition experts

So, Olympic medal winning machine Michael Phelps will be peddling Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes, NOT Wheaties as has been tradition.

Frosted Flakes has three times the amount of sugar as Wheaties and 1/3rd the fiber.

There is heat now coming at Phelps – faster than that breast stroking Milorad Cavic – from health experts who are worried about the message he’ll be sending to the fat little children of America.

Nutritionist Rebecca Solomon of New York’s Mount Sinai Medical Center says, “I would not consider Frosted Flakes the food of an Olympian. I would rather see him promoting Fiber One. I would rather see him promoting oatmeal. I would even rather see him promoting Cheerios.” Apparently this little chippy wants Phelps to endorse something that tastes nasty, but Michael Phelps keeps it real. Frosted Flakes are delicious.Plus I’m sure the check he got for hocking Frosted Flakes is fatter than the fattest kid in your kid’s class.

Now I realize childhood obesity is a serious issue. Sincerely. But can you really expect a guy who eats this for breakfast:
three fried egg sandwiches, with cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, fried onions and mayonnaise, followed by three chocolate-chip pancakes; a five-egg omelette; three chinese female gymnasts, three sugar-coated slices of French toast and a bowl of grits a maize-based porridge, washed down with two cups of coffee.
to be worried about a little extra sugar in the cereal he endorses?
