It suddenly occurred to me to wonder, however, how much 30g of cornflakes actually is, so I weighed it one morning - and it's about a third of the amount I'd normally been eating!
Small bowls might help. I added up my breakfast a little while ago - a slice of bread and butter and a glass of orange juice - 200 calories.
The tricky bit for me is not snacking during the day.
