    Unfortunately puréed or cooked fruits need to be synned. Its one of the idiosyncrasies of slimming world but allegedly is because it would be too easy to overeat in that form and fruit has a lot of natural sugars. Plus eating the whole fruit is more filling.

    But once you chew it won't it be puréed anyway?

    Research has shown that the process of chewing releases "feel fuller" chemicals in the body. If you bypass that you overeat and/or don't feel as full so you eat again sooner

    You could easily eat a mango and a couple of apples and a handful of berries in thirty seconds by drinking a smoothie. It would take much longer to sit and chop and eat that lot and you'd feel a lot fuller after.

    ALSO, science has shown that juices in particular can be quite bad for destabilising your blood sugar. Because fructose is a powerful sugar, it causes peaks in blood sugar when you don't have the fruit fibres with it at the same time to slow down digestion. It can also be bad for your liver if it all hits the liver at once. I think having smoothies (with all the fibre included) does help with preventing this, but perhaps this is part of SW's thinking...

    I don't understand the whole thought behind this at all and find it quite ridiculous! I can easily make a smoothie using flavoured water, fruit and syn free yoghurt and apparently this then equates into syns. It makes absolutely zero sense and given that these things are quite thick (There are smoothies, not juices) and therefore filling I really don't understand, nor will ever count, any supposed syns that appear in these things.

    Science says otherwise. You might think they are filling but the smoothie is gone in seconds and really wouldn't fill you up for as long as it would if eating the fruit in its raw state.

    I do understand the friut thing as in a smoothie you would eat a lot more of it than you would if eaten in its raw form. However, I don't understand how fat free fruit yogurt is free, but if you have a fat free natural / greek yogurt with a friut layer then it's syned. Surley it just a friut yogurt not mised up!?!

    I also don't understand why it doesn't apply to veg, so you can have a potato in its full form as a jacket but you can also have it as mash. Does that mean you could have veg smoothies?

    I think veg smoothies would be ok yes. I think it's because overall fruit does have a lot more calories than veg so it is more 'dangerous' to weight loss to consume a lot quickly. Also it has a lot more sugar so having too much too fast can cause spikes in blood sugar, which veg won't.

    Veg doesn't have as much natural sugar. So yes, you could make a veg smoothie. Something the crazy kids today are calling.....erm....Soup?

    But if you juice a vegetable then it dies have a syn value as the pulp is removed.

    There are not many rules to SW but those which are there are there for a reason. If you really want a smoothie, syn it.

    The fruit later has sugar etc in. It's like jam!
    Like I said, best not to question it :-)
