There aren’t many breakfast cereals on the No Count list, but I am a fan of oats.  It’s so easy to make overnight oats the night before and then pop them in a bag to take to work.  I also enjoy porridge made the traditional way as well as oven-baked porridge.

When I started the No Count plan, one of the things I really wasn’t looking forward to was having skimmed milk.  I’ve tried it so many times over the years and just haven’t liked it.  I began by using unsweetened almond milk before gradually introducing the skimmed milk and much prefer it now.  You can also have Arla ‘best of both’ milk which is fat-free skimmed milk with the taste of semi-skimmed.

Here are a few other ideas for breakfast:

  • Crumpets or toasted Warburton’s medium sliced bread with poached or scrambled eggs / bacon medallions / mushrooms / tomatoes.  A tbsp of Heinz ketchup (50% less sugar) is free on No Count.
  • Pancakes with low fat natural yogurt and fruit (using the No Count Pancake recipe above).
  • Fresh fruit and low fat natural yogurt.
  • Scrambled eggs on toast (with tomatoes and/or mushrooms).
  • Baked beans on toast (with tomatoes / mushrooms / poached egg).
  • WW wrap with bacon medallions, mushrooms and tomatoes.
  • Puffed wheat with skimmed milk or unsweetened almond milk and fresh fruit.
  • Shredded wheat bite-size with skimmed milk or unsweetened almond milk and fresh fruit.

  3. hi hhay50 im trying to subscribe to lovingnocount i enter my email address but no email is coming for me to subscribe

    1. Hi Jane, can you check your junk and spam folders as they sometimes go there. If you’ve tried to subscribe more than once, I might have to get in touch with the tech guys to sort it out. 👍🏻💕 Helen xxxxx

  4. Hi I am thinking of trying no count – can you tell me which crumpets I can have? Also are chopped tomatoes and passata free? Thank you 😀

    1. Hi Sarah, you can have all supermarket own brands of crumpets as well as Warburtons and Kingsmill. Chopped tomatoes and passata are free too 👍🏻💕 Hope you enjoy No Count if you decide to give it a go 💕 Helen xxxxx

  5. Thank you so much for all these helpful tips and words of advice. I have managed to lose 5 stone so far on WW and am not getting on with flex as I am hungry all of the time. For the first time in weeks I feel confident about what I am going to be eating for my first week ever on No Count. Such an inspiring website.

    1. Aww thank you Sarah, that is so kind of you to say. I wish you all the best on your first week of No Count – I hope you enjoy some of the recipes and that they help to keep you feeling fuller for longer. Good Luck! Helen xxxxx

  6. Hi, we’ve just switched to nocount after plateauing with Flex (hubby and I have lost 2.5 and 2 stone respectively so far). I am finding your website and blog so useful as I sit here planning our week’s meals. Just wondering, are other wheat cereals eg weetabix also free on no count?

    1. Hi Carol! Well done to you and hubby – that’s a fantastic weight loss from you both so far! I hope No Count helps to give your weight loss a boost and you enjoy some of the recipes on the site. I’m afraid only plain shredded wheat and shredded wheat bitesize are free as cereals – along with puffed wheat (no added sugar) and oats. I used to have Weetabix nearly every day before No Count but I don’t miss it now. Hopefully, you’ll be able to enjoy other breakfasts instead. Good luck with NC and I’d love to hear how you’re both getting on. Helen xxxxxx

  7. Hi,

    For your blueberry and apple baked oats, could I use cup cake cases?

    Loving your website! Just switching from counting as I’m too hungry all the time. Going to give no count a go. How do you control your portion sizes, and stop yourself overeating?’love your website!

    1. Hi Amanda, yes you could use cupcake cases 👍🏻💕 Glad you like the website! For No Count to work, you do have to control the amount of carbs you eat so I still weigh them all and make sure that some meals are carb-free. If you don’t lose weight on NC, try cutting back on the carbs. Good luck and I hope you have a lovely weekend 💕 Helen xxxxx
