If you work out daily you could notice severe improvements in recovery, energy levels, alertness, etc. A healthier person simply performs better, and it's not by a small margin either.

In general, the less processing a food item has endured, the better. Bran flakes are not optimal, that would be fresh fruits, dairy, things like that. But some brands are a somewhat decent source of grains. The milk is fine. Listen if you want bran flakes by all means, if you work out vigorously you can use a bit of carbs. I eat whole multi grain bread myself, I just need the carbs. Bottom line, some cereal products are good and some are shit. If you take them, select one with as much of the original food (grains) in it, and as little factory made additions as possible. Factory made additions could be corn syrup, taste enhancers, etc. You don't want those.
