    When it comes to choosing bread or cheese, it's hard to find the right choice that is low in calories and yet filling.

    I would love to know what kind of bread,besides weight watchers breads because I think the weight watchers breads are quite ridiculous to be honest, you guys choose.

    What cheese do you choose too?

    More food choices would be great to know too.

    I guess so, I was just wondering if there are any lite/light or low fat versions to try.

    Oh and I don't have balsamic vinegar but my dad bought Light Balsamic dressing, which is thicker. Is this ok?

    if you go on the ww forum they seem to have laughing cow light cheese triangles a lot, i think they are less ww points than ww own brand. I would make a cauliflower cheese with them, one portion of cauli and 2 cheese triangles mashed up with a potato masher - but i ama weirdo :)

    low fat cottage cheese is about as good as it gets though i think.

    Hi Yas!

    Just to say I'm not planning on having any cheese whilst on my 2 week refeed. There's no mention of it on the refeed sheet (unless I've missed that too!!) There is a line that says "any of the skimmed milk products" but I'm b******d if I know what that means - apart from skimmed milk of course - so I'll do without - at least for the 2 weeks.

    As for bread - I'm having warburtons small wholemeal. WW bread is a bit like cotton wool to me, Healthy Inside bread is good but I haven't been able to get it lately. When I'm maintaining I'll be having Burgens Soya & Linseed which is one of the lowest GL breads you can get other than rye (which I don't like). The only down side of that is they only make large loaves which means i'll only have one slice and there's something far more psychologicaly satisfying about having a whole round of sandwiches on small bread than 1 large slice folded in half!

    When I am eating cheese again I'll probably get the laughing cow lights - you can get extra lights but I never used to like them as much. And probably something like Cathedral City light for hard cheese. xx

    I didn't have cheese until week 2 of refeed last time. If we're allowed diary products, I'm sure is too.

    But yeah, just to be on the safe side, best to stick to the letter.

    summergurl..all the supermarkets sell that bread..we eat it all the time..its quite expensive at £1 odd a loaf but it does last a long time and i think, far better than white rubbish :)

    look for a browny coloured plastic packet..they also do it with cranberries i think but never tried it

    just try tescos or something they stock it in dorset/somerset and were not that far away from you lol

    or you could even just give your local one a ring or something and ask them, simple as that!
