I don't think I've ever seen the kids so excited to get review products as they were when we received Kellogg's All Bran in three different flavours.
I knew the three boxes weren't going to last long so I weighed out my 5 portions straight away so I could do the challenge before the kids
I'm currently attending Slimming World and as part of that I have to have healthy extras which consist of a daily portion of food containing calcium and a daily portion of food containing fibre.
I usually have wholemeal bread for my fibre portion and cheese for my calcium but I changed to the All Bran and milk while doing the challenge.
I must say I really enjoyed having cereal for a change. I usually have fruit and yogurt for breakfast because it's easy to grab but that doesn't keep me feeling full and by lunchtime I'm ready to eat anything I can find!
My favourite flavour was the red berry crunch although the chocolate wheats were pretty moreish, I have to admit!
I've could have easily eaten a lot more than my 35g healthy extra portion but I had to be good to get my next weight loss award!
Luckily I've never had to deal with being bloated so I can't say whether it helps with that or not but it did help me with my weight loss by keeping me feeling full til lunchtime, which stopped me snacking in between meals then grabbing rubbish at lunch because I was so hungry.
I'm happy to say I did get my 8 and a half stone award the following week and I'm sure making the change from bread to All Bran really helped me get a 5 and a half pound weight loss after struggling the previous weeks :)
|I've discovered the wonder that is fat free yogurt instead of milk with my cereal and I'll never go back to milk and cereal again!|
I think it took about 2 days for the three boxes to be polished off because not only did the kids have them for breakfast, they snacked on them after school and at supper time! They didn't want milk, they just wanted to eat them right out of the box.
I made them get bowls!
