    All-bran is great!
    It's got an awesome crunchy texture, goes well with flavoured yoghurt & some milk, and damn high in fibre and nutrients.
    I'm on a cut, and I have it everyday for breakfast without question.
    Much more filling than the same amount of oats I feel.

    HOW TO PICK A BREAKFAST CEREAL

    Diana Mirkin


    The healthiest breakfast is whole grain cereal. If you're trying to lose weight, control cholesterol or diabetes, or just need a lot of energy, your best bet is a hot cooked cereal of whole grains, such as oatmeal; or barley, brown rice or wheat berries cooked and served like oatmeal - perhaps with cinnamon or raisins.

    If you prefer cold cereal, you need to check the list of ingredients carefully. The FIRST ingredient should be a whole grain. Then scan through the entire list and if you see the words "partially hydrogenated," put the box back on the shelf. You should avoid foods with partially hydrogenated oils (or "trans fats"), and they show up in an alarming number of cereal brands (see the list below.)

    Once you've eliminated all the brands made with refined grains or partially hydrogenated oils, check for added sugars (you want little or none) and fiber (you want a lot.)

    The fiber content listed on the nutrition label can be confusing because it's based on serving size, and very light cereals (such as puffed wheat) show little fiber per serving, but an acceptable amount when you adjust for weight. Cereals made from bran (the outer covering removed from whole grains) will have higher fiber content than cereals made from whole grains (which have the germ and starchy parts of the grains as well as the fiber), but they can be hard to digest.

    Recommended: Cereals made from Whole Grains
    (no trans fats, little or no added sugars when I checked them; but check the labels -- ingredients can change. )

    There .. alrightish. I mean if your just trying to lose a few extra pounds / put a few pounds on then there fine - don't worry about it.
    But if your looking to get lean I wouldn't be using this stuff , and like the article Mino Lee posted your much better off having some barley / oats / brown rice etc.

    I hear that! All my favourites are on the not recommended list. What's wrong with Spcial K though? (other than the fact that it has no taste)

    It depends on your activity level. I can get ripped up on Frosted Flakes, but I cycle 45-60 minutes a day and do treadmill and elliptical work for a hour and fifteen minutes 3 or 4 times a week. Bottom line, if you're active and create a caloric deficit you're going to get lean. If you're looking to compete, and have to be better then someone else looking for every edge then worry about it. If having some cereal with a little sugar is the worst thing you're doing then you're going to be fine.

    If you are going to use All Bran, I wouldn't suggest the flakes, they are too processed. Instead get the one that looks like twigs. Not as tasty but healthier because it's less processed. Fiber One is another good choice.

    Most flake type cereal is too processed.

    Good cereals are:
    Fiber One
    All Bran
    All Bran w/ Extra Fiber
    Uncle Sam Cereal
    Kashi Go Lean Crunch

    I have tried Fiber One, All Bran w/ Extra Fiber, and Kashi Go Lean (non-crunch version), and I have to say, Kashi's Go Lean is my favorite by far, but the Fiber One and All Bran goes great with oatmeal.
