    Morning All!

    I've been making porridge (oats and water) with a 1/2 cup measure believing it to be 30 grams and therefore 1.5 points. I'm now completely confused and hope I've not grossly underestimated!! Can anyone help? Started WW last Tuesday evening...
    Thanks:confused:

    Sorry, I don't know the answer to this but I have found using "Oat So Simple" or another pre-packed porridge helps because you know what your getting. Also, Weetabix are 1pt per large one, you can microwave them and mix them in with milk.

    you might need to invest in some scales but half a cup for 30g sounds about right to me

    Hi,

    I bought a digital scales in Tesco (great investment btw) and to my horror discovered the cup of oatmeal weighed in at 45 g!!

    At least it was oatmeal and not butter...
