PB2 All Bran Bars

PB2 All Bran Bars


I have had issues with regularity since childhood. My doctor advised I stop taking senna containing products (ie. tea and pills), which I confessed to her I have been taking for years. It turns out senna is indicated for treatment of short-term constipation only. It works by irritating the lining of the bowel, which causes a laxative effect. Long-term use of senna can actually cause the bowels to stop functioning normally and may even cause dependence on laxatives.*

Rather, she told me to include psyllium fibre in my diet. She recommended either All-Bran Cereal or Metamucil. Considering both have calories, I'd rather eat my fibre than drink it, so I opted for All Bran Cereal.

Place in the fridge for a couple of hours to set it. If you are impatient, place it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes. Then cut and serve!

Final Thoughts:

Here is my progress photo, which was taken after I included All Bran into my diet for the week. Clearly everything is ok! Plus I'm more regular and happier! At the end of the day, you have to make dietary choices that work for your body and sanity. It's not a big deal for me to add All Bran Cereal to my diet because I can factor it into my daily macros and calories, thanks to my Fat Loss Fast System.

  1. my story too- right down to the Senna products. Thank you for this recipe- needed it

  2. Hi Sara – Just wanted to thank you again for taking soooo much time to chatters w/me at the Arnold. You are just as beautiful in person but more importantly not just on the outside but on the inside. It is obvious that you do have a heart for fitness and for helping others achieve their goals. I’m checking out your site and trying to absorb all that I can. As I shared w/you I’m 52 and working real hard at changing my body. Already lost a chunk but now am living in a lucy goosey body so I’m hoping to change that with your help. Hey you did say that your mom was able to lose on your program so I’m sure there is hope for me. Just wanted you to know that I do appreciate you!!! BOOM! Mama Hoff
