Does anyone know if the General Mills Fiber One Cereal is legal? It has 0g sugar, and the label said that it was made of whole wheat flour, but I'm still skeptical b/c it isn't that bland, it's actually quite good. If anyone knows, please reply!!

I also would go with the guide. I need to buy a new copy, though, because I still think it's odd that a product with any kind of corn would be "legal."

Ed, corn and corn products are specifically discussed as "unacceptible" in every revision of the Sugar Busters books I have. And if memory serves, corn is on the blacklist in the shopper's guide as well, so if Fiber One is in there, it's likely another of those SB contradictions.

I would personally not eat Fiber One or anything with corn anything in it, as I have had too much success with the basic SB premise of eliminating these things.

Re corn, many eons ago, it WAS a healthy item but it's been hybridized so much that modern varieties are very high glycemic and it's likely (IMO) no accident that populations that eat it as a staple diet have a high rate of diabetes. This actually ISN'T just my opinion, it's a large basis of the Sugar Busters premise.

Hi friend, I know I should follow the 'rules' more often and yet I have found that I love corn very much and I love to eat the Mexican Cornbread meal pancakes which I add more tabasco sauce to them and that's very good although at the same time, I have found out when I eat as much as I want, my blood sugar goes sky high since I add corn to the Mexican Cornmeal since that's even better so I have to have a small portion, I think the word 'moderation' is a dirty word, but I think eating less is a good word and although it's not easy to do at times, I don't think of it as a dirty word. I think that if you insist on eating corn, it's much better to eat the whole corn compared to the cream corn which has more sugar or it sure tastes much more sweet to me so I use the whole corn. I like the Homeny corn although I am sure it will be said that it's bad for diabetics.

As far as Fiber One, or All Bran, I think they are very healthy for diabetics since they help you to have more fiber in your meal plan and I am planning to see which has more fiber and then add this to my Oatmeal when it's through cooking, but I know I will have to pay a lot of money to get this taken care of.

The more fiber I eat, including the beans, the less I want to eat.
Have a blessed day.
In Christ, Vernon
