    Syns for men?

    Myself and wife went to class on 1st week (then continued online)
    I was told that I could have up to 25 syns a day & wife 15.
    Is this right it does seem a lot. Some days I am glad of it but mostly I don't go over 15. I have lost a stone and a few pounds in 4 weeks. This week I stayed same but didn't do anything different. Is it worth me try to stick to 15 syns max?

    When me and my OH joined he was told he could have 20 syns and me 15. He doesn't often go to the full 20 and when he does his losses slow down. I think it has something to do with your start weight as well.
    If you don't feel like using 25 don't, but it like you said it could come in handy on certain days. I don't think your STS is due to that, we all have a gain or STS at some point, it just could be your body slowing down a stone in 4 weeks is really good, well done
    If I was you I'd stick to what you're doing if you start gaining then speak to your consultant and discuss the amount of syns you have. You'll probably have a great loss this week, good luck x

    25 is the correct amount.. Since I started I tend to use about 15 a day but I do like a drink at the weekends so technically save the rest! It hasn't hurt me so far.. I've lost every week.

    You just have to find what works best for you, remember men are allowed more because we need more calories than women. Have the syns, they are more likely to help you rather than hinder you!

    Thanks folks. I will keep going as I have stuck to this longer than any other diet. I used to use my fitness pal but always ended up re-jigging my weekly goal to allow for more calories .
    I do tend to eat large amounts of the free foods though... Lots of pasta & rice & meat etc.

    if anything I am eating a lot healthier than I used to as I was always getting drive thru and takeaway, now I just have fakeaway.

    That's good that you fill up on free food, it's better than feeling hungry and eating junk, as long as you're eating your 1/3 of superfree it doesn't matter if they're big portions. My OH is a big eater and he's lost 4.5 stone and he's stuck to it for over a year which he has never done with anything else before.
    Have you got the fakeaway book? It's really good I cook something out of it about 3 times a week when he wants something naughty instead of him having the real thing.
    Soon you'll start to feel healthier as well

    That could be what it is, not enough fruit and veg. If you're not a big fan of veg hide it in sauces, you can grate carrots and other veg, put them in a chilli for example and by the time it's cooked you wouldn't notice it's there.

    Good idea...

    i don't have a consultant though as I am only following it online. I thought for the money I was paying that there would be access to an official forum, couldn't find one so that's why I am here.
    i am going to get the fakeaway book though.

    No there's no official forum, what I would suggest is you make a diary on here and you'll soon get any support you need and you can pick people brains if you get stuck

    Ok I got the fakeaway book.

    the pizzas say 4 servings , 7.5 syns . So does that mean it's 7.5 syns for a quarter of one pizza (looks tiny)

    I know it doesnt seem like alot of pizza but with sw chips and big salad, it will be really good. Maybe invite friends around to try it out. For extre bits try some of the free crispy chicken. ;-)

    It is, but I would do slimming world chips and lots of salad to go with it.

    May I recommend the spiced chicken and the chicken nuggets? They're both delicious and feel really naught for just 1.5 syns
