Hello people,

My breakfast used to consist just of oats and some egg whites. It seemed that the soluble fiber did not work for me and I was constipated for the whole day,(i drink lots of water).

Whenever I broke my diet I ate All bran Cereal (28 grams insoluble fiber) in the morning and 4-5 hours later i was running to the toilet. All bran cereal consists of Wheat bran. ALthough it has 18 grams of sugar per 100 gram , and I am currently cutting. I also believe that i need that sodium in the cereal since my sodium all day is very low and i my water intake is huge.

I went ahead and bought from a friend in grocery original wheat bran (the one they make their breads). Do you have any nutritional information for it?

Can I make an oatmeal/wheat bran cooked with some egg whites? Is the glycemic index ideal and good for cutting? Because I know nothing about wheat bran , i just know i need that insoluble fiber which i cannot take from oat bran /oats. Is it wiser to cook it in such a way instead of eating the cereal? (once again im cutting)

can i also mix 30-40 grams of all bran with pure wheat bran so that I lower the total sugar content? I

I like oats as a hot cereal. I prefer wheat bran mixed with some soya milk.....Therefore i prefer not to mix oats with wheat bran.

Does even the small amount of sugar ...around 10grams -15 grams in the morning can kick you back? I mean....its morning.....dont i need quick energy even if i am cutting?

if it all fits in your daily caloric intake i don't see the problem!

You can get wheat bran just about anywhere. It's overpriced at the grocery store. I get mine for $0.12 per pound, and I get my steel cut oats for $0.50 per pound from a bulk food supplier.
