    Inspire me please.

    I'm fed up of having a cheese pita, or veg and cheese omlette and then trying to fit the HEX B in somewhere throughout the day.

    Why not have an extra portion of cheese? Hifi bar with a cuppa, ryvita minis as a snack etc.

    I'm doing EE, and I thought you had to have one HEX a, and one HEX b? I'm a cheese fiend, so the cheese is not usually a problem fitting in, but the HEX b, I struggle with a bit more. Could I really swap it for another HEX a?

    I either have my hexa&b for either breakfast or supper.

    I have either, cereal, bread, ryvita's or cereal bar. There are so many cereals to chose from I never get board & I usually add fruit to the cereal.

    I always have cheese for hexa as I don't really like milk.

    Have you thought of searching the threads for what people have for breakfast/lunch/dinner for ideas?

    if you're struggling to use your HEB - how about cooked, dried or tinned fruit, or ready made soup - it doesn't have to be bread

    And in answer to your other question, no sorry, you can't swap a 'B' choice for an 'A' choice... sorry

    Have another look at the HEB list - there is so much to choose from there really is not excuse not to have it. Make a concious effort to choose your HEb over free food. What do you have for breakfast? That's when most people would use it eg for cereal or porridge. Or Just use a tbsp of extra virgin olive oil when cooking and you are sorted.

    I usually end up synning more HEBs lol. Chocolate weetabix is my fave! Poached egg on toast. Often I have one of my Bs for breakfast, then have bread to dip in soup at lunch. Or I have a toastie for lunch. Or cereal bar as snack/pudding. The chocolate ones feel like your having a chocolate bar! Other thing is, olive oil one tbsp is a B choice, so you could use that instead of fry light for a meal to add nutrients/taste. I sometimes use tbsp olive oil for a stirfry for a HEB as I find it cooks a stir fry better and tastes better. Or you could make home made pesto for a salad/pasta etc, and use a tbsp olive oil per portion for that, since the best pesto has olive oil

    I tend to use my B's on Alpen light bars so I get a sweet treat during the day.

    A's can be trickier if I'm not having a meal that lends itself to cheese, as I don't have milk in my tea.

    Today, for a snack, I have slices of ham spread with Philly light and rolled up - it's delish!

    I tend to use my HEBs for breakfast and cereal bars - I often have either toast or cereal (weetabix crunchy bran, usually) for breakfast, and then a cereal bar later in the day :)

    I always have my hexs for breakfast. So it's usually 250ml milk either drunk with 2 alpen lights or with 2 weetabix. Or I will have 71g philly light, which i can use throughout the day, so some on 2 slices nimble (my hex b those days) with marmite, then I can use whats left on a jacket spud, in place of butter in mash or anyhow I like really!

    You could use your HexB choice for soup maybe now that the colder weather is coming? There are a lot of choices in your book, it doesn't just need to be bread or cereal! Maybe you could post a rough food diary and we can have a look and see how you could fit something in :) xx

    Wow, if I had more HEXs I could easily use them up! I do green days and you get 2 hexas and 2 hexbs. I always use all 4 but could use even more. Love milk and cheese so that's hexas sorted, have porridge for breakfast and end up synning some of it as I have 40g, 28g just ain't enough!

    ive got the opposite problem. Im finding it hard to have the A choice because i dont really eat cheese or eat cereal for breakfast to have the milk. I dont drink tea or coffee either to put milk in

    I eat yoghurts so im getting some dairy in.

    I love the alpen light chocolate fudge bars. Satisfies my sweet craving. Saves you using syns too
