Bloated: Raisin bran will definitely draw extra fluid into your bowel and stimulate a bowel movement. Maybe try a smaller amount or alter the timing of your cereal. You can also try fruit instead . All the best. ...Read more

No problem: Raisin Bran in high in fiber and makes your stool softer than it would otherwise be. The only problem might be if you get board with it, in which case you could substitute any number of high fiber cereals.
