    For me it varies sometimes just a couple, other days its more.

    Im not keen on WW bread. Its great for using as bread but if you like toast... its awful... doesnt toast well at all

    I use 1 point a day on bread on a regular day, sometimes 2 but my bread is 0.5 per slice, its not the WW bread thought its the kingsmill crustless 50/50 as it tastes like proper bread, the WW one was too cardboardy for my liking when toasted

    12 slices a day sounds quite a lot. Even allowing for it to be WW stuff.

    The most I probably have is 6, occasionally 8 but thats the exception rather than the rule

    Why not have 2 slices of bread for brekfast ( maybe try the crustless one its much more satisfying than the WW stuff ) and have and poached or scrambled egg on it, or a tin of WW beans for 2 points, or even garlic muchrooms. They are a few of the different things i have on mine in the mornings when i have time, either that ir its marmite lol. :D

    I just posted on your thread with some examples of what I have had for breakfast and lunch. Some of them still include bread but it might help you cut down a wee bit. Good luck.

    Bread is my downfall (and cheese!), can't have either in the house (except for the WW bread, as that's technically cardboard) ;)

    I usually try not to have more than 4 or 5 slices of WW bread toasted per day. The WW Malted Danish seems to be slightly better than the WW White, and they do a thicker cut brown loaf now aswell I think, but possibly 1pt per slice as opposed to the normal 0.5. An old but good trick I find is to just cut it into smaller slices and put them in a pile, so it looks like I'm eating a lot more than I am.

    Id definitely recommend the Kingsmill crustless. Im like you Rosemary I love cheese. Its not great but Tescos HL cheese toasts not too badly, I have that quite often, just to get my cheese fix :)

    I used to eat a lot of bread, but when I'm on ww I don't eat so much because it seems like a waste of points once I've added the butter etc.

    I used to eat toast for breakfast, but now I have a bowl of cereal instead. I alternate between Tesco's version of coco-pops and Tesco boulders - 50g of cereal with 1/4 pint of milk comes to 3.5 or 3 points, and that's for a good sized bowl (not the recommended mice sized portion on the box, lol).
