All-Bran 5 Day Challenge & competition

Saturday, 16 August 2014

Start feeling All-Bran new in just 5 Days! I'm going to be taking part in the All-Bran Challenge which aims to prove that
it's easy to set tummy niggles aside and increase your fibre intake.

Why do we need to eat more fibre?  

Many people suffer from symptoms of digestive discomfort such as bloating and feelings of sluggishness from time to time. In fact, research estimates around 40% of the population suffer from bloating regularly.

Symptoms can often becomes worse when we are irregular and have a slow digestive transit time, which is where eating enough fibre, especially wheat bran fibre may help.

Kellogg Report, 2010, Taylor Nelson & Sofres (TNS) Research International; London; UK, 2010.

You can increase the amount of fibre in your diet by making some simple changes:
  • Start your day with a cereal high in natural wheat bran fibre, such as Kellogg's All-Bran.
  • Go for brown rice or whole wheat pasta instead of the white varieties – or try a 50:50 mix.
  • Opt for a handful of nuts or fruit instead of crisps, snack bars or biscuits.
  • Switch from white bread to wholemeal, seeded or another high-fibre variety.
  • Make sure you’re eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables every day.
  • Add peas, beans or lentils to stews and casseroles.
  • Add extra vegetables when making meat sauce for lasagne, curries, chilli etc., or why not go veggie and make a meat free version for a change?
  • Choose wholemeal, oat or rye crackers instead of your usual variety.
The Kellogg's All-Bran range provides between 2.7g and 10.8g fibre per serving, which is up to 43% of your recommended fibre intake (the Guideline Daily Amount of fibre is 25g per day). In addition to the benefits of natural wheat bran fibre, Kellogg's All-Bran cereals provide an important source of folic acid, 5 B-vitamins and iron.

  4. I think I probably do get enough fibre, as I eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables. But making sure I eat more raw or lightly cooked veg would help.

  5. I think I probably do get enough fibre actually! Might be one of the few things I do manage to do!!

  6. I don't think I do! So this challenge would be excellent for me! x

  7. I don't think I am this would be great x
