It all depends on the sachet I guess, but you really won't need them if you follow the plan...you'll lose a nice steady amount of weight and not have to rely on powders to get you there
    Thanks love, i may just ignore them then. They seem to consist of citrus and apple pectins, sorbitol, guar gum, cider vinegar, pineapple extract, green coffee, cherry stem, guarana, orange peel, grape marc ( no idea what that is!), meadowsweet, green tea, papaya, sacharin and various vitamins and preservatives. I'm guessing with that sort of complex mix it would be impossible to look up. Per sachet it's 7 calories, 0.02g protein, 0.68g carbs and 0g fat. Think i'll be best sticking to good old SW, just that having found them i wondered if they'd provide a boost. Thanks for looking then up love, don't worry if you can't find anything about them :-)

    Sorry to be a pain I just want to clarify on the whole free foods thing - on EE. Free foods are any fruit and veg fresh or frozen, lean meat and all fish even oily ones and including seafood? Any kind of pasta and rice - and these you can eat as much as you like (within reason)?

    Lostfan - dried pasta and rice!! fresh stuff is high in syns. can't answer on meat/fish as i don't eat it or pay attention when people talk about it, but seems like an awful lot of it is free, ONLY IF ITS LEAN and you trim fat off backon etc. 99% of fruit and veg are free, some aren't - mainly stuff tinned in brine/syrup etc so worth checking but i haven't come across a raw veg or fruit that aint free food yet

    This is essentially correct, the actual list includes, but not limited to:


    • Lean meat & poultry
    • Fish & seafood
    • Potatoes, pulses and starchy veg
    • Rice, pasta & grains - dried;
      • fresh pasta (the stuff in the chiller cabinet) has syns:
        • filled pasta 5 syns for 100g uncooked
        • unfilled 2.5 syns for 100g uncooked

      • microwave packet stuff, like dolmio:
        • flavoured - 4.0 syns per pack
        • plain - 2.0 syns per pack

      • rice like microwavable uncle ben's:
        • plain - 1.5 syns per pouch
        • flavoured - 3.0 syns per pouch
        • savoury rice - 1.5 syns per pack


    • Eggs
    • Fat free dairy products - natural yoghurt, cottage cheese, quark and whatnot
    • Vegetable proteins, eg Quorn and tofu
    • Herbs, spices and stock
    • Tea, coffee and diet drinks
    • Fresh/frozen fruit - canned fruit in both juice and syrup has syns;
      • vaires wildly, but approx 2.5 syns per 100g in juice and 4.0 syns per 100g in syrup

    • Most vegetables - check your book

    My only advice for someone who is starting this is read your book like its the bible, no one will ever know everything about it and everyone whose on it can give different advice. I have learnt so much from listening to other peoples stories and how they do things that hopefully it will help me in my journey
