    Hi
    I am just enquiring about the healthy extras why is it that you are only allowed 28g of cereal as this does not seem much at all especially when you start work early .
    Also why cant you have any other cereals apart from whats on the healthy extra list i like cornflakes frosties

    Because they're lower in fibre and higher in sugar. You can still have them but you have to count it as syns. If you buy puffed wheat (with no sugar) 28g is a huuuuge bowlful. 28g isn't a lot, but it's easy to eat a lot of calories with cereals, that's why its limited. Try adding fruit to bulk it out.

    You could combine 2 HEX Bs and have 56g?
    Or as dehli says- add free food, so have 28g cereal and a boiled egg or some fruit.

    Because the HEX's are around 100 cals each and that's how many cals are in 28g's.

    I have a Mullerlight yogurt with my cereal instead of milk - larger portion of food in the morning and it saves my HExA for later!

    I have my 28g of cereal (not much is it!!) and have it with chopped banana and free yoghurt instead of milk, so it ends up being quite filling in the end.

    It's definitely worth investigating non-cereal options which are generally much more filling. Cornflakes and frosties are dreadful, if you're at all sensitive to sugar they give you a massive crash an hour or so after eating, leading to being ravenous.

    Weetabix is quite good as far as cereal goes, you can have (I think) 2 weetabix for 1 HEB, chop up a banana and add milk, lovely! And ridiculously filling. I (who can easily eat two great big bowls of crunchy nut chocolate clusters in quick succession) can never even finish it...

    A nice poached egg, some lean bacon and a couple of slices from a 400g loaf (1HEB) plus a yoghurt and/or a piece of fruit is another nice big breakfast, or if you can't face cooking how about a more "continental" style cold meat and cheese (a couple of very thin slices of something nice like Emmenthal weighed as an HEA) platter thingy?

    I'm eating 28gr of oatmeal microwaved with a 200gr 0.1% yogurt and topped with strawberries or raspberries and half a banana (or a whole one if I still can!). It's quite filling and keeps me for a good 4 hours at least. Then I just wait another hour and have lunch!
