    How many syns a day do you have on average

    I was told on first week that you can 5-15 syns a day but to just have 10 because that's what most people do. I have been to another meeting today and the consultant said you have 15 syns a day what does everyone else have. Do you think you lose quicker by having the 5 less syns a day ? I don't mind staying at 10 as then days that I do go over a bit or a lot it's not as bad. Just wondered what other people have.

    The SW guidelines are 5-15 syns a day, although the general advice is to aim for around 10 a day.

    I really don't think it makes a big impact on losses - 5 extra syns per day is 100 calories, so 700 over the course of a week, really not going to make much difference at all providing the plans are stuck to.

    The "aim for 10" bit has been mentioned more since Extra Easy was introduced.

    In answer to your question, I am for no more than 10 as a rule but can go up to 15 on a weekend.

    I've been averaging about 8, so if I go over a little bit on a saturday night treat I can forgive myself.

    But to be honest 8 is about enough, by the time I include stuff like a bit of spread on toast, bit of cheese on pasta I feel like I've had plenty of treats in the day lol sometimes if I've only had about 2 syns I will have some choc like a mini milky bar or freddo cos I feel if I'm not having at least 5 I'm cheating myself

    Yea I normally have between 5and 10 a day gonna stick to what I'm doing it's working and at least if I do slip up or really want something extra it's not going to make a big difference on the scales

    I think they say to aim for 10 so that you don't feel deprived only having 5, but your weight loss is protected in case of hidden syns

    So close I can almost taste it.

    I spread mine over the week with more at weekends. It usually leaves me with 8-10 a day from Mon to Wed, with a Thurs am WI. I usually use the full 105 syns a week.

    I have my full 15, hasn't had any effect on my losses. I think its easier for me though as I don't have 'hidden syns' as I'm super limited in what I can eat so there is a rare chance for them to sneak in. I rarely eat out/eat takeaways and I don't eat ready meals etc so I'm in full control of what goes in my mouth. I like having 15 as when in having a slow week I can cut down to 10 for more discipline. Also will have my syns to cut back on when I'm near target or reach a stubborn point
