All-Bran recently got together with Britmums and set bloggers the task of taking part in their #RealMumsAllBran 5 day challenge.
Eat a bowl of All-Bran cereal for 5 consecutive days and see if you notice a difference in your general digestive well-being.
Eassentially the idea behind it is to give our tummies a good feeling, not that horrible bloated niggling that many of us, including myelf get.
To get me started, I received three boxes of their cereal : Golden Crunch, Red Berry and Chocolate Wheats.
I recently reviewed All-Bran's new Chocolate Wheats but I had never tasted their other cereals before.
To keep it fair, I didn't change anything else to do with my diet or my exercise routine.
I started my challenge on a Monday, I think changes to your diet are always best done on a Monday, don't you?
I alternated which flavour cereal I had each day.
I liked all of them, no soggy cereal, lovely flavours and very filling.
Overall my favourite was the Golden Crunch.
I would say I started to notice a difference to both the way I was feeling and my appearance on day three.
I certainly felt less sluggish and my trousers although not looser as such, felt more comfortable to wear.
I tried to take before and after pictures, it was hard to get the same angles and lighting but I could definitely see a difference between Monday and Friday.
Ok nothing major but in 5 days I would say I'm impressed.
I didn't have the awful tummy cramps that I'm normally left with and I wasn't left looking like I was 6 months pregnant at the end of each day.
My tummy was certainly feeling the love!!
I have carried on eating the All-Bran cereals since I completed the challenge and the digestive complaints I've had have been kept at bay.
Seems to be true that eating a good amount of fibre every day is a great remedy for keeping our tummies smiling.
