    Cereal, fruit , weetabix etc just doesn't fill me. My normal breakfast is 3 turkey rashers on toast with a slice of low fat cheddar and a scraping of light mayo and relish, It is delicious and all only 5 points. But for a change has anyone got any other tasty ideas? I have eggs the odd morning also.

    Another porrige fan here too. :D

    I am just loving it at the moment especially with some blueberries or seeds in.

    What about smoothies for breakfast ?? have you tried any of those for a change ??

    I can't remember much about WW when I did it (well not the points one anyway), so forgive me if I'm saying something not allowed.

    I usually have porridge in the morning. I keep a box of mixed frozen fruit in the freezer which I use for all sorts of things. Whenever I'm shopping I'll pick up a bag of whatever is going and just add it to my box.

    I use 40g porridge, a handful of frozen berries and 'that much' of milk (sorry :D)

    Quick stir and 2.5 mins in microwave. Truly scrumptious.

    Smoothies get the frozen fruit treatment to. I also add yoghurt to smoothies as it keeps you going longer. (Porridge is low GI, so it does that all by itself.)

    Yep I am a porridge boy as well.

    The Sainsburys Taste The Difference Porridge Oats With Jumbo Flame Raisins is the best I have found and only 99p for a packet.

    Hi Celtic Chick

    I have had fabulous breakfasts every day this week on the Gi Plan. I have been so full that on days were I couldn't get lunch until mid afternoon I was absolutely fine.

    Not sure what the weight watchers points would be on them though. You can see what I have eaten all week in my diary which is in the maintenance diaries section.

    Cereal never used to keep me full up either. So I used to have a small snack mid morning to get me until lunch, and now I hardly ever need a snack anymore. As you lose weight your stomach shrinks anyway (it's what I've heard, I don't know if it's scientific fact) so I think it's just a matter of 'training' your body.

    Breakfasts on my list are:

    2 Weetabix and either 30g of sultanas (3 points) or 100g banana (3.5 points).

    Oat-so-Simple orignal porridge and either 30g sultanas (2.5 points) or 100g banana (3 points) - The Oat so simple packets are only 1.5 points for the original one.

    40g Cornflakes and either 30g sultana (3 points) or 100g banana (3.5 points)

    Boiled egg, 2 slices of WW toast, 2tsp of Diet Flora (3 points)

    Scrambled egg, 100g baked beans, 2 slices of WW toast (3.5 points)

    2 slices of WW toast and 100g of Banana (2.5 points)


    Hope that helps someone.
