Green Days Do you have a full tin of baked beans or 1/2?!

Used to have a full tin but trying to cut down my portion size so am on half now.


rainbows holiday buddy :)
depends how hungry i am and if i'm having other food with them. if i have a cooked breakfast i'll have half a tin, but if it's just beans on toast or on a jacket potato i'll eat the whole tin.

i like cooking them for ages aswell, so the sauce goes really thick and stodgy. taste so much nicer that way.... my beans are banned from microwaves!


Never gets tired of SW!

If it's in a jacket potato I have 1/2 as the jacket is so filling, but if I have them on 2 slices of Nimble I have the full tin otherwise I know I will get hungry again within a couple of hours! This morning I had a full tin with quorn sausages and tomatoes as I felt I needed a big breakfast! I suppose it depends on a few factors such as appetite, how active I've been/am going to be, and what else I'm having them with!x

full tin.. otherwise you have to keep half a tin in the fridge until you need it next....
either that or buy the half tins / snap pots to start with..

as said they are a speed food so I fugure if I have the whole tin then that's a bit faster than half a tin..:)

I nom the whole tin never gained yet in 16 weeks I use WW small wholemeal bread and quark as butter =]
if its free fill yourself up!!
I feel burst worthy after too and find I dont snack or feel hungry till teatime.
If i ave 1/2 I have a pudding i.e chopped fruit carrot sticks.
I cut my evening meal size but not lunch I think breakfast and lunch should fill you right up as you'll be using the most energy throughout the day. Its working for me lol
now enjoy those beans =D eat whatever amount you like xxx

I have half a tin, but put ketchup on top, which apparently is wrong.
wrong in SO many ways, and not just for the syns that the ketchup adds...:jelous:

I do like to add a few splashes of hot sauce or chili sauce to mine on occasion for a bit of bite...
I usually have half a tin on my jackets, and a whole tin on two slices of wholemeal bread. I used to worry that too much of anything despite it being 'healthy' was going to stop my weight loss but a lady at my SW club lived off baked beans on stuff for a whole week and lost 8lbs! :eek:
