    Syn allowance based on weight?

    Forgive me if i have posted this in the wrong part of the forum, as it's not about syn values as such. I only go to my SW group to get weighed every few weeks now and therefore am not in the loop as much as I could be. I overheard the Consultant giving the new members talk while I was in the queue to be weighed and he said that he would tell each new member what their personal syn allowance would be once they had been weighed. Is this a new thing? I just assumed that the 5 - 15 syns per day rule hadn't changed and wasn't aware that members were given a specific syn allowance according to how much they weigh. Can anyone shed any light on it? Just curious.

    My friends mum was told 10 a day but I go to a different group and she never told me what to have, the books still say 5-15 so I'm going with that. Usually closer to 15...

    As much as i love the SW plan, I find that there is a real lack of consistency in what information is given out at different groups!

    My consultant always says 5-15, but recommends newbies to start at the top end so they've got somewhere to go if losses start to slow down. I've never heard of a "personal syn allowance" (though I think men get more?)

    Consultant are able to give people with a lot to lose more syns and always have been. But i agree there is no consistency at all which makes it confusing when people move groups or chat online

    I joined almost 2 weeks ago and was given 10 syns per day!!

    I don't know if there is any reason for this but I only list 1lb on my first week so maybe it was best I didn't have 15 lol

    My friend who goes to group told me this today too, she was told she shouldn't really be having any more than 10 a day. So confusing as she is the same weight as me and I was told to have my full 15 I'm sticking to 15 as it's working well for me, just wish they'd be more consistent.

    I'm on my 2nd go on SW. The first time I did it I was told between 5 and 15 syns. This time (different consultant) I was told that as a man I could have up to 25 syns a day, and the amount of weight I had to lose also gave me an extra 5, making a total of 30 syns per day! I've no idea what to believe!

    Men get an extra 5-10 syns on top of the 5-15, if you have more than 16 stone to lose you will get more, this goes up in increments. The extra for weight is kept private, so you may not all be aware, it won't be discussed in group unless the member wishes to divulge.

    10 per day is recommended if you have less than a stone to lose.

    Whilst it is 5-15 syns, 10 is the guide and you will see this in the magazine too.

    However, as an ex consultant, believe me when I say there is a lot to get in to the new member talk and I did sometimes forget the extras, as it was the exception rather than the rule, plus with the privacy I forgot by the time I weighed new members in!!!! (Members did always get a follow up text!)

    Jaylou would you be able to clarify a little on the syn allowance I would be allowed hun. 27 year old female, 6ft 2, start weight of 31stone 5lb looking to lose 17st 5lb.

    Obviously I know I should ask my consultant but I get the feeling I'm the largest person she's had. I'm not saying if I was allowed 20 or even 25 a day I would use them but it would be interesting to know if I could have that amount whether it would take away some of the guilt I feel for using syns.

    I was told in one SW group I went to that I could have 20 syns a day, but my current consultant said that 5-15 should apply for everyone. To be honest, I'm happy with 15 syns a day, and the flexible syn system is a nice buffer if I go out for a meal, etc.

    I've always been told 5-15 and have never been given any hint as to having any extra.

    Years ago I did have a friend who kept telling me I should only use 10 syns or less, as that's all she used, but she only needed to get about a stone off and I had about 10st to lose! Everyone seems to have their own interpretation of the plan don't they.
    Started WW- Jul '13 @24st 1lb- BMI-52 and 56.5lb lost in total so far.
