People having stomach issues, that is quite normal when you sharply increase your fibre intake. Same thing happens with bran flakes/Golden Crunch. After a short while your body with adapt to it.

5 is my usual, 6 if I'm extra hungry.

Gotta get a small mountain of sugar in there too. Add milk, mix it all up, strawberry floatin yum.

One day, I know we'll meet again, under the Iron Sky...

2 or 3. Cold milk. No sugar because it makes it pointless having a healthy cereal to then cover it in sugar (as delicious as it is).

That said, I am tempted by Laga's sugar paste weetabix method. :shifty:

Stealth how often do you poop thread. Seriously though, weetabix never had this effect on me. What kinda low fibre diet are some GRcade folk eating? :lol:

I add the absolute bare minimum milk to make it not feel like dry Weetabix. I think this is why my son doesn't like it as I made his the same way and it's probably a bit weird if you haven't made a conscious choice to eat it like that...

I don't eat Weetabix often, but when I do, I usually have 2 (milk, sugar, cold).
I prefer the Chocolate Chip Weetabix Crispy Minis though, to be honest.

Six?! Why don’t you just pour the milk straight into the box of weetabix and guzzle it out of that?

5, max.

I crush them but don’t add sugar. I generally have 4. Could eat six fairly easily.

Up to that point I'd been eating Weetabix since I was wee, and I was also getting fibre through the whole stuffing of my face with Hovis brown bread. So surely my body was used to fibre? My fibre currently comes by way of oats and that poses no issues. Ditto when I have brown bread on office days. (4 slices of thick Hovis.) So yeah, I think that for me there was definitely something within the Weetabix which was affecting me. (That or the splash of whole milk + sugar.)

How do you eat yours? Weetabix in the bowl first, break each one in half, then the splash of milk (splash = enough so that 'bix are partly soaked but next to no milk in bottom of bowl), then the sprinkling of sugar. Then eat one half at a time.

2/3 with milk and a bit of sugar in a bowl, not mashed, because I'm not a child/psychopath

I have 3 or 4.

I tried the Lidl ones and they just weren't the same so have gone back to the originals. I feel like such a corporate whore I might as well start taking tips from KK. :(

2.

With the way Weetabix sucks up milk, I couldn't afford to buy enough milk to cover 6 in one go. :shock:

Just going to say the same thing. Many years ago the advertising was based around "Can you eat 3 Weetabix?" like it was a challenge. Last time I had them they seemed quite tiny.

Yes?

Speaking of products changing...

I had a nibble of the cream cheese TUC biscuits a couple of weeks ago. WTF did they do to them?! There was zero sharpness/tang to the cream cheese. I'm shocked they're still bothering to make them.
