Question Low carb cereals?

Hiya there group,
I was just wondering if any one could suggest a couple of good low carb cereals..? At first I thought shreded wheat was good but then I saw where it had a GI index of like 50...??! can any one explain that one to me..? All it is is whole wheat...I thought "whole wheat" was good for low carb dieters...? Am I missing something?

Thanks group

Uncle Sam's and Fiber 1 are both low GI. However, if you are on Atkins Induction, neither are acceptable.
I'll try to answer your question about Shredded Wheat if you give me the nutritional content. I never buy it myself! It probably has to do with the relationship between the carbs and the fiber.
I hope this helps a bit.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Bran flakes is what you are looking for, most likely.

There are now low-carb versions of Special K and Total. Both are very good!

Post Carb Well cinnamon flavored cereal is pretty good, also.

I second the Oat Bran cereal with some cream and cinnamon.

I may have to try some of the low carb cereals again, I just couldn't take the "sweetness" in the morning.
