    Hi all,

    I was getting a bit bored of the same hexb all the time lol and my consultant said she once had different ones and lost good amounts of weight.

    I am trying to just swap the b choices this week. Tried bread one day, then porridge, then muesli, tomorrow albran etc etc. Has anyone else had success swapping their choices and getting good losses?

    I have and I find it boosts by a lb or 2 if I am lucky, but I find I need to have my bready HE's at the beginning of the week as that stays in my system longer.

    Yeah I am the same, convenience foods for me mainly, I am terrible for that.

    My main breakfasts if not mullerlights and fruit, tend to be Weetabix, puffed wheat or porridge oats. So thats my HEA-B there.

    But if I have just fruit and yog for brekkie, I tend to have either a packet of ryvita mini's with cottage cheese and chopped up ham after a free soup.

    Or a sandwich but trying to cut this bit out :)

    Have you tried magic porridge? It's a new one on me but trying to cut out wheat and I find I actually look forward to breakfast now rather than forcing myself to eat it!

    i love bread so much so the small slices really dont make up for it for me so i tend to stay away from it alltogether otherwise that would make me feel deprived!!
    i just love the alpen light bars though they feel like a real treat to me!!

    This may sound a bit thick but is magic porridge any different from regular porridge?

    Yes hun. It's 28grams oats mixed with muller light yoghurt. You mix the oats with the yoghurt in a tuperware bix and leave to stand in fridge overnight. Some people chop fresh.fruit into it in the mornings.

    I thought this sounded awful but gave it a try out of intrigue and,I love it! In fact I'm disappointed in mornings,if i've forgotten to make it up. Breakfast has become fun again.

    Give it a try! :)

    I mix up my HExBs a lot, and find that the weeks I do it more, I have better losses.

    Some of my favourites are:
    *Wholemeal roll
    *All bran
    *Weetabix or Chocolate Weetabix (not forgetting to add the 2 syns for the choccie ones!)
    * Porridge Oats
    *Scan/oat bran
    *Dark Rye Ryvitas
    *Ryvita minis
    *Stilton (on a Green Day!)
    *Alpen Light bars
    *Kelloggs Fibre Plus bars
    *Hifi bars

    I gained 1/2lb after my healthy extra challenge, but its time of the month so that may be the real reason for the gain!

    I'm having another shot at it this week :)
