    How many syns do you use a day / week

    Just trying to get a feeling of how many you all use? Some people always use 15 per day or 105 a week, others I know feel safer at 5-10 average per day. So???

    I don't tend to use very many, when I start an actual meal plan, I might work them into meals a bit better?? x

    The correct way is to use between 5 and 15 a day. Some people find that counting down works for them. If you use the search, this has been asked several times recently, so the answers there may help you
    22lbs down, 13lbs to go to first goal

    I think there was a post like this last week, have a look as there may be some useful info there.

    I was always encouraged to use mine daily. I try to use at least 10 but I won't use them if I'm not hungry (which usually is not the case!). I like to have a Fibre Plus bar everyday which is 6 already.

    I tend to graze during the day, I always choose superfree but if I'm really peckish or fancying it I'll use syns, so I prefer to eat my syns as snacks, rather than use them in a meal. Everyone's different. Find what works for you & how you like to use them.

    I try and stick to my 5-15 per day, but as I count mine from Mon-sun on a Friday after work I add up what I've used so far, and see what's left from 105 (15 x 7) then I can go over by having a couple of drinks or a takeaway without feeling guilty this doesn't work for evetyone though, its all about trial and error I think x

    I try to have less than 8 a day- just from habit really. 5-8 is usually my average amount.

    I don't save them, I used to a bit, but now I don't really need to. What I *do* do though, is if I have my treat for getting into the next stone bracket (like pizza or something) I stick to the minimum syns for the rest of the week- but I don't really count my treat- since its not that often

    I tend to mostly have syn free days during the week. If I do have syns it tends to be within a meal, mostly quorn things. Then I work out what's left, take away 10 for my chicken jalfrezi and boiled rice on Saturdays and then go to the pub.

    With my weigh in day being Monday, I have to stick within my syns when I go out on a Friday. And I never have any treats on my weigh day. Friday nights are for that

    My consultant says that syns are a vital part of the plan and weeks I have cut back I definitely haven't lost as much.
    I have ( at least ) 15 syns a day. x

    I'm really struggling to have syns this week! The most I've had is 1/2 syn which was chewing gum. I'm just not hungry after free food and feel if I have syns it means forcing them in me so I don't. I'm not craving for them either. Hope it dsnt effect my weight loss (

    I'm quite changeable. Sometimes I use my full allocation, sometimes I'll have 5. It depends on how my cravings are doing. Most of the itme it's nearer 15 though!

    Maybe you could have a take away or something nice on the weekend if you fancy it :-)
