    A hex b would need to be wholemeal bread only. 60g worth. Two slices of a larger loaf is slightly more.

    If we only have big loaves in the house I'll sometimes use those as long as it's wholemeal I just weigh out 60g as my HEx b.

    So do I unless I've got plenty of Syns in hand to allow for the extra 20g (= 2 Syns)

    It's my one cheat. I use waitrose own medium sliced 800g loaf. It's a lot less syns than other 800g loaves and 2 slices works out 66g. I feel like I have a proper sandwich/toast instead of minging nimble. So far I'm losing good amounts. Not recommending anyone else do that tho

    I tend to use HiFi or Alpen Light bars as my HEXB but if it's bread then I use 2 slices from a 400g loaf

    I always use two slices from a 400g loaf. I portion the loaf into two slices and freeze them in freezer bags as no one else eats brown bread in my house.

    I sometimes use ordinary slices if that's what we have but my OH eats most of the bread and I normally use something else as my HeB. I don't think you can use 50/50 as a Healthy B though as it doesn't have enough fibre.

    Correct - 50/50 is not on the HEb list.

    if you're cutting off the crusts to make a total weight of 60g then you're not cheating! A HEx is 60g of any WM bread.

    I usually get the 400g of any wholemeal loaf that looks the freshest and will last longest because really only me that uses it but sometimes we get 800g loaf and I dont bother cutting the crusts off or syning the extra bit but thats just me.
