    A hex b would need to be wholemeal bread only. 60g worth. Two slices of a larger loaf is slightly more.

    If we only have big loaves in the house I'll sometimes use those as long as it's wholemeal :) I just weigh out 60g as my HEx b.

    It's my one cheat. I use waitrose own medium sliced 800g loaf. It's a lot less syns than other 800g loaves and 2 slices works out 66g. I feel like I have a proper sandwich/toast instead of minging nimble. So far I'm losing good amounts. Not recommending anyone else do that tho

    I tend to use HiFi or Alpen Light bars as my HEXB but if it's bread then I use 2 slices from a 400g loaf

    I always use two slices from a 400g loaf. I portion the loaf into two slices and freeze them in freezer bags as no one else eats brown bread in my house.

    My only cheat too, I always cut the crusts off kingsmill wholemeal 800g loaf, 2 slices works out 60g. Pleased to see im not the only one. Thing is everyone is different but it hasnt done me any harm in the 2years, so if it works why not...

    Never regret something that once made u smile

    I sometimes use ordinary slices if that's what we have but my OH eats most of the bread and I normally use something else as my HeB. I don't think you can use 50/50 as a Healthy B though as it doesn't have enough fibre.

    Correct - 50/50 is not on the HEb list.

    if you're cutting off the crusts to make a total weight of 60g then you're not cheating! A HEx is 60g of any WM bread.

    I usually get the 400g of any wholemeal loaf that looks the freshest and will last longest because really only me that uses it but sometimes we get 800g loaf and I dont bother cutting the crusts off or syning the extra bit but thats just me.
