The All Bran 5 Day Challenge

I have suffered with stomach problems since taking medication that disagreed with me a few years ago. At that time not only was my stomach affected but my mind as well, leading to an episode of psychosis.

I thought I would give the All Bran 5 Day challenge a try to see if it would benefit me as my stomach has a very delicate equilibrium and the slightest change in diet can lead to painful side effects. Could eating All Bran cereal really help me feel better?

I was sent three boxes of cereal in the following flavours for the challenge.


Red Berry Crunch
Clusters of wheat and rice with a mix of dried red berries. These were my favourite, I loved the sweetness of the dried fruit.

Chocolate Wheats
Whole wheat grains shredded and layered with chocolate. Grotbags loves these but I find them too sweet.

Golden Crunch
Clusters of wheat and rice without the berries. I liked these too but cheated a little and added some diced fresh fruit.

I must admit that generally my stomach did feel less bloated after trialling this cereal for 5 days and the cereal does taste good which is a huge benefit for me. I wouldn't say it cured all my problems but I do think it helped. A huge positive for me was Grotbags and I actually found the time to sit and eat breakfast together.
