I eat Corn Bran. I try to eat it only a few days a week, when I am on phase 2. Right now I am doing 1 1/2, the only carbs I added back are fruit and no bread like things.

Corn bran is listed as very high GI in the SBD book. I left it at work but I think the GI was like 101 or something. :yikes:

Well, I'd avoid corn bran but I do eat the cold cereals listed in the second post.

Do you have a fever? I really am disappointed. I would have thought that you thought cereal to be too processed?

Thanks for the ideas. I love Kashi. You can let that stuff set for a half an hour and come back to it and it's still crunchy! Amazing stuff.

poo...... I guess I will have to find another cereal, good thing I don't have a box in the cupboard. :(

Islander, I'm surprised that Kashi Good Friends made the has organic cane juice, if I remember right. :chin:

Cheerios are also allowed, and Special K's Low Carb cereal seems to fit SBD rules as well.

I don't tolerate starches well for breakfast, but DH has cereal each morning.

Actually, RN, cold cereals were marketed as health food, back in the day! Good ole' cornflakes! ;)

Anybody know if Grapenuts might fit?

Well, I must confess that the only cold cereal I eat is GM Fiber One - sometimes with yoghurt and sometimes in a fibre shake. I've tried the others betimes. I really need to keep my fibre grams 20-30 per day and F1 is the way to do it. Lately I've been eating Red River cooked cereal with milk, cinnamon and sometimes apple.

looks like it is going to be cherrios for me. Do the multi grain ones fit in the plan??

guidelines for cereal is 6 or more grams of fiber and 8 or less grams of sugar per serving

I have been eating Special K low carb lifestyle. It has a nice taste and it fills me up for the morning.

I do Shredded Wheat with 1% milk and nuke it for two minutes in the microwave, and add splenda or stevia. Mushy but warm and delicious. I do Weetabix the same way.

I bought some of the carb special K, have not tried it yet, a little scared to start adding the starches back. :(. Although I did have an egg salad on high fiber multi grain bread sunday on at the ski hill but I figured I would burn it off.
