    I hate this - which is worse? Not eating the Oatbran at all, or eating it with oat germ, which is about 10% fat...

    I really don't know at this stage -

    Has any thing been said on the official chats?

    Very annoying indeed. I'd not eat oatgerm in attack, that's for sure.
    When I started the diet, using the original French book in 2007, the galette is mentioned on page 200 odd and so no I didn't use the oatbran! Only when someone told me on an online forum did I start.

    So I'd go for none, rather than oatgerm - at least in attack.
    If using it in Cruise, as it's carby, perhaps avoid carby iffy yoghurts...

    I just French googled the question and everyone is saying "no germ"!

    What do you think Atropos?

    I'm thinking "no" to oatgerm - this is, in principal, a low carb, low fat diet, and eating oatgerm is basically the opposite of that!

    In an emergancy, if I do run out of oatbran I'll follow the advice for coeliacs. I'll miss the galette/muffins/bread - but at least I know that it's a temporary blip and they'll be back.

    I am more concerned about newcomers to the diet, who may have to go through several weeks without access to oatbran and the lovely things you can eat with it, and may never incorporate into their diets at all.

    It's going to be tough for them.
