I eat weetbix most mornings - two weetbix with 2 teaspoons of wheatgerm and some skinny milk. I eat them pretty quick though as I really dislike soggy weetbix! Sometimes I put a bit of fruit on top as well - a couple of apricots or a banana being my faves. I find this usually keeps me going until lunch (or is it just that I'm too busy at work to think about eating).

I just watched Goof eat 6 weetbix :shock:

Sure, he has a double lesson of PAS (advanced PE) and a double of PE today as well and will burn it all off - but SIX weetbix :shock:

His lunchbox is chockas as well - he will need to eat well today to keep up - luckily this only happens once a fortnight. Oh and he will be a smelly boy by the time he gets home - he is going skating with mates after school :roll:
Every day I am getting thinner and thinner.....

WOW, Lolly! That's huge! It's fantastic that he's so active though!!!

I lurv my Weetbix soggy with boiling water. This morning for brekkie (after my gym class - I had toast before because I can't do aerobics with too much in my tummy!!!) I had 2 Weetbix with a tsp of Bran Plus on top, a tbsp of sultanas and a bit of banana all mashed up together. Oh man it was good :D So filling too! The Bran Plus, sultanas and banana really give it that bit extra to fill you up! 2 Weetbix on their own just wouldn't do it for me!

About a month ago I changed from weetbix to lite-bix (weetbix with no added sugar or salt). With a bit of chopped fruit on top you don't really notice the difference.

I know it's not weet bix but I've been having about a cup of Weeties (has no sugar) with about 1/2 tbsp sultanas to sweeten it and L/F milk and I find this keeps me going until about 11.30 and by then I figure I might as well wait until 12 for lunch.
Keep on smiling,

I will never understand the appeal of weetbix. They taste so...well..boring and unappertizing. I'd rather soak them in milk, let them harden up for a couple of days, carve them into spearheads, tie them to a stick and spear deer with them. Now that's a real breakfast! :lol:
