    Hiya

    Im quite new to this, and am sure someone with more experience will come along soon but personally i find porridge with skimmed milk to be a good one at 3 pts or my fav 1 egg, 3 ww bacon (both fryed using frylight) and a tablespoon of beans, all for 4 points.

    We have the same to lose, so can follow each others progress

    Porridge is always the one I go for if I need to stay full for a long time - gotta love those complex carbohydrates. I really like cornflakes but I think you need something hot and stodgy to stay full in this weather.

    I think Oat So Simple is just 3.5 points.

    I go with the porridge vote every time.

    I make an oatso simple plain sachet up with water and a dash of skimmed milk. Then add splenda, 0% greek yogurt (spoonful to make it really creamy) and a measured out portion of cashew nuts, mixed fruit and sunflower seeds (5g cashews, 5g seeds, 15g mixed fruit). All of that is 3.5pts and its ace.

    I make up little bags of the nuts mix about once a month and just keep them in the cupboard ready to use.

    I did the low gl giet before starting ww and it teaches you all about food which make you feel fuller for longer i.e not giving you a sugar rush and then crash leaving you feeling hungry (cornflakes have a high gl which is why your starving by 10am).
    Breakfast (all low gl) i would have on that would be
    porridge (with cinammon) - 1.5 points
    muesli - 2.5 points
    all bran (not branflakes) 1.5 points
    grapefruit - 1 points for whole
    eggs - 1.5 points
    bacon - 1.5 points
    fruit (not bananas) - varies usually around 0.5 points
    yoghurt - 1.5 or 2.5 points depending if plain or fruit
    wholegrain bread (not wholemeal) 1.5 to 2.5 depending on brand

    Hope that helps. x

    Porridge gets my vote, too. Plain, with fresh fruit, or some dried fruit... it's always a winner. Recently I've also been trying wholegrain toast with peanut butter and a glass of skimmed milk. Seems to work well for me :)
