Slimming World Healthy Extra B List 2024 – UNOFFICIAL

So you have finally taken the plunge and joined Slimming World! It will probably be one of the best decisions you have ever made. But the first group session can be very daunting… You are hearing all sorts of new terminology and everyone else in the group seems to “get it”. Never fear… you will soon get the hang of it.

One of the first things you will hear about is your Healthy Extra B Portion.. on this page you will find my unofficial opinion, list and information about Hex-B.

Why Does Slimming World Include a Healthy Extra B Option in Their Plan?

Healthy B foods provide you with the necessary fibre you need to succeed on the plan.
I am regularly contacted by followers asking the same question.. “do I really have to eat Healthy Extra B?” I agree it can be difficult.. especially if you are fan of cereal or bread. But it is a necessary part of a healthy diet and I would highly recommend squeezing it in.

Many of us associate fibre with digestive health and bowel function. But eating foods high in fibre can do so much more than keep you regular. It can lower your risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, improve the health of your skin, and help you lose weight. It may even help prevent colon cancer.

When Should I Eat My Healthy Extra B?

This is a question I am asked regularly. In all honesty there is no answer to this. It is completely up to you! As long as you stick to the required portion per day you can devour at any time.

Top tips for enjoying your Healthy Extra B

  • Enjoy a portion of cereal for breakfast
  • 2 Slices of toast for breakfast
  • Save the bread and use it for a sandwich at lunchtime
  • Whizz up breadcrumbs to add to a recipe in your evening meal
  • Enjoy some nuts as an evening snack
  • Smother cracker breads with cottage cheese for a cheeky snack
  • Have a tasty cereal bar with a cup of tea in front of the TV

Can I mix and match my Healthy Extra B?

Yes you can, for example Slimming World recommend
1 Weetabix and 1 Hifi bar. So have a Weetabix topped with a whole banana sliced in the morning.. and enjoy a Hifi bar in the evening with a cup of tea.

How many Healthy Extra B should I be eating?

On the Slimming World website they state you may enjoy ONE Healthy Extra B portions per day.

So for example if you enjoy 2 weetabix for breakfast, any other fibre products such as bread, cereal, nuts etc. must be included in your Syn allowance. So if you know you cannot go without your sandwich at lunch time, use the bread as a healthy extra B allowance and have something like yoghurt and fruit or eggs for breakfast leaving that portion of healthy extra B free for later in the day.
