    Hi,
    Well, I'm only just into my 4th week, but as I kept on hearing Scanbran mentioned at my group, I decided to buy some...
    Aside from the challenges of actually eating it .... sorry, I really don't like cake anyway :D, I just wanted to know if it does actually boost weight loss??

    I'd be really interested in your opinions :D.

    Thanks!!!!

    Our consultant made a yummy lemon cake with it, I couldnt actually eat one - way too dry, but as ingredients for nice cakey things they seem to work really well :)

    (sorry I have no idea if they help with loss though!)

    I like scan bran and scan bran cake, I don't think it helps with weight loss in my case, but I had a Consultant years ago who said that if you eat 1 packet of scan bran per week, you're guaranteed a 2lb weight loss, so maybe it works that way for some people.
    Try it and see.
