    Doing SW in Australia as a Vegan

    Hi there
    I have done slimming world in the UK years ago when I was vegetarian and tried it here for a while with little success as it was hard to find syn values.

    I have been vegan nearly a year now and am looking to loose a couple if stone before November and wondered how easy it would be to incorporate a vegan diet with slimming world.

    Any ideas would be welcome!
    Thanks
    ☺️

    I think it would be possible. Follow green days. Drink soya as your healthy extra. What do you eat on a daily basis now?

    Sorry never followed a vegan diet before xxx

    Have replied to your post on my diary but it's so easy - my healthy extras I use Oatly/Alpro/supermarket own-brand milks, I mainly use my B choice for bread/rolls/cereal but sometimes use it on dairy-free cheese (35g/40g is one B choice allowance). Of course all your beans and pulses etc are free as is dried soya mince and chunks but some frozen mince is free too (unsure what you can get where you are). Some brands of yogurts etc aren't too high in syns (most Alpro ones are 2 syns a pot) for example.

    I posted this thread last year which was helpful to me with SW-friendly ideas etc:

    I suspect the best option would be to join online then you have access to the syn calculator and work out the syn values on products you have available there. But yes the green plan would be the most appropriate - pasta, rice, noodles, lentils, pulses, grain, fruit and veg all free

    Joining online isn't an option it's really expensive here and I am on a tight budget. I use lots of things like chia seeds, LSA, sesame seeds, nuts, sunflower/pumpkin seeds etc with salads and in veggies so wondered how heavy in syns they are.

    Nuts and seeds are all pretty high in syns but you can use certain ones as healthy extra B option. Otherwise it would be 1 syn per 20 calories on seeds

    Yeah, unfortunately these things arent easily incorporated into the plan, you can have some nuts and seeds as healthy extras but tiny amounts.

    This info should help:

    Healthy Extra B:

    20 Almonds shelled and whole
    2 level dessert spoons flaked almonds
    6 brazil nuts
    12 cashew nuts
    3 or 7 chestnuts, I don't understand that, maybe 3 is for a faster loss?
    35 g fresh coconut
    20 hazelnuts
    35g plain houmous
    55g plain reduced fat houmous
    1 level tablespoon chopped mixed nuts
    15 peanuts
    12 half pecan nuts
    1 level tablespoon pinenuts
    28 pistachios
    2 level dessertspoons sunflower or pumpkin seeds or tahini or linseed or sesame seeds
    30g of tiger nuts
    6 walnut halves
    20g milled flaxseeds with probiotic and vit D

    So on green days you can have 2 of the above for healthy extras but the chia seeds will have to be sinned until SW discover how healthy they are and add them to the plan.

    Do you used tofu much? I find that very useful, scrambled with no fat using vegan worcester sauce, tumeric and bouillon powder, a bit of nutritional yeast if I want to have the sysn.

    What brands of non dairy milk do you get in Australia?
    Mini Summer Target: To get to at least 15.7 by the 24th of September. This is 14lbs to go, at least 2lbs a week. WI dates: 12.08: 1lb lost 19.08(binge) 26.08 (still bingeing a bit) 02.09 recovery 09.09 2lbs off 16.09 23.09

    My ultimate goal is to have a healthy relationship with food and to be strong and slender for the rest of my life, through compassionate eating and being in tune with my needs.

    Sorry it took so long to reply, I couldn't get on here!

    Anyway I use Pure Harvest Organic soy and oat milk. Thanks for the info re nuts etc. I am going to go right back to basics and cut it all out in regards to nuts seeds etc and try get the weight Lisa happening first!

    So if I do green days we get 2 a and 2 b choices is that right? And how many syns for nooch?
