    Ok so I decided to investigate scan bran. I bought enough for 8 days at holland and Barrett (everything buy one get one half price at the mo so that's a bonus)

    I have decided to use it as my HEXB for a week and another few miniminites have agreed to join in starting either today or Friday where we will then post results and see if the minimum of 2lbs a week loss rumour is true.

    Plus I thought it would be nice to share usage so I don't get stuck having it with philly light and ham EVERY day ;-)

    feel free to join us! Going from today or tomorrow post either your start weight and then loss or just loss at the end of next week

    I'll start.

    todays weight 15st 7lbs

    I thought I'd join you over here from the other thread. Weigh in is tonight so I'll update with my starting weight later. In the meantime I best get thinking of ways to make cardboard taste nice ;-)

    Me too! After having scan bran for breakfast and lunch yesterday I weighed 1lb less this morning. Coincidence or not I'm not sure but I'm going to thank the scan bran for it lol.

    That looks nice. Did you just top it straight or did you crush it an make the base? I've seen a pizza base on the scan bran recipe thread....yummy!!

    i have to admit I've just had laughing cow!

    I just put the toppings on. I mixed some tomato purée,garlic, chilli and oregano together spread onto the scan bran and topped with chopped mushrooms and 1/2 hea of reduced fat mozzarella baked until the cheese had melted. It was tasty and sooooo filling i haven't been hungry or snacked all afternoon, leaving me with 15 syns to have tonight :)

    image.jpg Scan bran pizza!! I was inspired and went one step further for lunch. I am soooo full and the tomatoes make the scan bran much softer. I used both HEXs on this baby but NO syns!!

    That looks tasty. I've had mine crushed up in left over curry. I'm so full I'm hoping it will stop me from reaching towards the 4 boxes of m&s cake bites a patient has kindly given us.

    One of my fave brekkies is baked beans, onion and peppers on toast. So today I swapped the toast for scan bran 'buttered' with Philly light. The bean juice soaked in to soften the scan bran and it was actually quite yummy and very filling!

    Sounds like a yummy breakfast. Day 3 is done. I've just eaten a raspberry and chocolate scan bran cake with fresh raspberries on the side. I might struggle tomorrow as we're out for lunch and cake for my birthday. I'm hoping ill still see a result on Thursday. I'm already feeling less bloated.

    I have to admit I enjoyed the pizza so much I did it again but this time I used an egg to bind the base. Much much better and allowed me to use a little more stock to soften the scan bran. I am so full right now!!!

    I didn't manage any scan bran yesterday and unlikely to today - in boring meetings at my work's head office! I did resist the buffet yesterday and just had a wholemeal roll with marmite and grated cheese for my hexa and b and a handful of strawberries they provided. I don't know where I found the willpower from but I managed to resist chicken nuggets, mini pizzas, apple pies, cherry bakewells etc and felt very good for doing it. So only 4 days of the scan bran challenge but I'm hoping it will have helped me still. I'm looking forward to seeing how you all get on this week!

    I fell back on "with laughing cow" at work yesterday.

    Today at I bought some Splenda so I'm going to try a cake recipe. I'm interested to see how palatable they can be!! Ill post a pic x

    Ok I won't post a pic because it looked like a flat lump. Not very cakey. Tasted ok though

    I had the opposite problem, looked lovely and inviting and tasted horrendously awful. At least yours tasted ok!
