    Hi everyone, I'm giving SW a go from tomorrow. I'm a previous WW loser (4st) but thought I might try this as my friend is doing it too.

    I'm trying to get my head around the breakfasts, 28g fruit & fibre + 1 oat/scan bran... can I have a nairn's organic oatcake (rough oatmeal) instead? Scan bran looks wholly unappetising.

    Afraid not, you can only have the things that are listed because they are included to make up the fibre content to the required amount. Oat cakes are not a HEB at all and need to be synned. That said you do not have to eat the oat/scan bran if you don't want to.

    I see, thank you.

    I've not tried scan bran, I'll pop down to H&B again tomorrow. I think the oatcakes are 2.5 on ExtraEasy.

    Are oat bran a similar thing? like a rivita?

    You don't have to have the scan bran if you don't want to. Personally cannot stand them so if a hex inckudes them i just don't eat it. 28g of porridge is enough for me without adding the scanbran!

    Thank you, I'll do without. I might give them a go one day.
