    hey guys, have my box of new shakes, was just wondering if anyone has ever taken BRAN to help with extra dietry fibre.. I'm not sure what the nutritional values for a table spoon is, hoping someone can help..?

    And while I'm here has anyone tried plain egg Whites blended in your shakes after a trip to the gym or general exercise for help with muscle growth... hoping someone can help..?

    Bran would take you out of ketosis, flax seed is a better option for fibre and if your only using it for regularity then Dulcoese will do the trick as all other nutrients are in your packs

    Why not take Psyllium husk. Its a pure natural fibre, and you an get it in capsules from H&B. You can also add the rough powder your morning vanilla shake, and it makes a kind of porridge (kind of). It wont knock you out of ketosis either :) It gives the bowels something to chew one ;)
