    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???

    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

    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 :-)
