    Yes I started SW this morning, I bought all the lastest books off Ebay.....so I can do the diet at home, I did a Green Day today and so far so good, I am trying a red day tomorrow as I am having Turkey rashers and eggs for breakfast, so that should be a Free meal on red..

    I could'nt afford to go to classes either, plus I live in a small village on the East coast and the nearest class was is 10 miles away, so its a DIY SW at home for me.

    Oh and welcome! How rude of me! I'm doing SW for the 5th time except this time I'm trying to go it alone! Everyone I've met here is absolutely lovely, all an inspiration and very positive - stick with us!

    Hello, you can buy scan bran in Holland and Barret and lots of other health food shops, I think Waitrose sell it too if you have one near you.
    There are recipes for scan bran cakes in the recipe section and you can eat them as crispbread. I have a piece of scan bran cake most days - keeps me from the biscuits.
    They're a bit strange when you first try them but I really like them now.

    Welcome to SW and mims!

    Personally, I think scanbran is the devils food! They taste like cardboard and are exactly the kind of food that gives dieting a bad name!
    I would much rather get extra fibre through fresh veg and fruit.

    The beauty of SW is all the lovely varied free foods you can eat in abundance- I don't see the point in eating unpleasant things!

    I know some people like them though, so it is personal choice

    I have only recently discovered Scan Bran. I've never tried eating it as it comes, but I've made it into carrot cake and chocolate cake. Not quite like the real thing, but good for a sweet tooth like mine!

    I wouldn't bother, unless you like eating loft insulation :p they are expensive and taste disgusting! The only place I've seen them is Waitrose (apart from class) Eating should be a pleasure! I stick to ryvita, much cheaper and palatable!

    I'm another one that likes scan bran!
    Yes they have a bad reputation and I know most people pull a funny face when you mention them but its just a matter of taste!!
    Being high in fibre, they really do 'the trick' if you know what I mean and people seem to have very good losses at class when they have included them in their diets.
    I'd say even if you aren't that fond on scan bran, its worth a teeny bit of suffering for a great loss!!! lol ;)

    Scan Bran is definitely an acquired taste. Great for the recipes, like cakes and ferrero rocher, but on it's own it is a bit like eating squares of dry turf. Saying that, I have now grown to quite enjoy them as a snack - I have two (that's really all you can eat in one sitting!) with my HexA of cheddar cheese. It's really good for keeping everything "moving along nicely" if you know what I mean... :eek:
