Confession time - little cheats?
I've just restarted SW a week or so ago, but having followed it successfully in the past (I lost nearly three stone on it a few years ago, after my eldest son was born) I've got an idea of what works for me - and I have to confess it includes a couple of 'little cheats'!!
The main one is that I don't syn tinned fruit. I know I should, I know that in the plan they are synned, but I don't do it. I don't eat a lot of fruit generally - loads of veg, but not a lot of fruit - so the odd time that I do have tinned pears or peaches I rinse all the juice that they are tinned with off them and count them as fresh (or as a HEX B if I have one spare). I think of it as an incentive to have the fruit instead of a less healthy snack with the same syn value.
I'm not defending it, and certainly not recommending it - just confessing to it!!
So I was curious to see if anyone else does this, and if other people have 'little cheats' that they use because it makes the plan work better for them?
Don't worry - I won't tell anyone!!
