No, rice chex are not primal. And yes, it looks like another sugar war. All the usual suspects have arrived.
To the OP: Rice Chex are not primal. Please go read the books, or at least read the information on this site, to find out what's primal. If you need something "quick" for breakfast, you'll have to make it the night before. My breakfast is a smoothie with berries and whey powder and two hard-boiled eggs. Both are transportable. But you're 16, you better be eating huge lunches and dinners with lots of high-quality meat, a little bit of butter, and a few veggies for variety and antioxidants.
5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

Fat is stored with 97.5% efficiency. If you want to get fat, eat lots of refined fats like butter and oil, and highly fattening foods like nuts, chocolate, cream and cheese.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
While the latter part of that is fact... that does not automatically make the former fact.
If you can't see that you have made the very same mistake in your assertions on fat then you really are lost.
Both those proclamations sound good if you know "just a little" biochem/physiology, but neither pan out in human trials. Now that is a fact.
And to wrap it up...efficiency is a good thing. Preservation of resources, metabolic and otherwise is good. It also tend to reduce oxidative stress.
