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.

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

Default Ruth???????????

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.

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

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!

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.

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