Is it just me or does anyone else struggle with 50g of oats for breakfast?

I'm having chia seed pudding tomorrow and will try oats again Wednesday. I've felt so full and uncomfortable all day :(

Jenny I have cut mine down as I struggle to eat in the mornings full stop.

Quinoa I would do quarter a mug rather than the half which is 50g of porridge oats that's measurements from my dietician

Sounds strange to have both. I would swap with quinoa if u want porridge with quinoa. But the portion size is right for carb according to my dietician with a large glass of milk

Sounds interesting. Could I just replace the oats? X

You can also add quinoa to your porridge for some protein Jenny xx

Try reducing the amount of Oats and adding something like Almond butter and honey to keep you full. I have 27g with Almond butter, honey and half a banana and it keeps me full for hours :)

I do, but because I am quite active I eat it after exercise them late morning, I agree it is quite heavy. Do what is right for your body 😄

We are all different... I wouldn't force it if you are full. I have a very hearty appetite and am enjoying the decent portion size.
