    Chocolate and Crisps have been my biggest downfall, how do you get around them?

    I'm just starting to try slimming world to lose weight, my problem has always been crisps and chocolate, I'm a bit of a nibbler rather than a big meal person, I just wondered what are the things I could have that would satisfy that craving that are low syn, cos its worse around that time of the month....

    You can have chocs and crisps just incorporate them into your syns. You'll have to make changes like go for lower syned stuff.

    You could keep keep a syn box with low syn treats in just for you

    Crisps are a big thing for me too. Now I stick to Aldi cheese curls, which are 3 syns a bag.

    I buy Aldi versions of Quavers and French Fries. Cheaper and lower in syns. The Cheese Curls are 3 syns and the French Fries 3.5.

    I also buy their version of little aero bars - "mini bubbles". They are 4 syns each and I nibble them slowly.

    Freddo frog chocolates are 5 syns each. If you like white chocolate, I discovered the other day that milky bars are only 3.5 syns (it's the small bar, you get about 5 in a pack - 12g I think).
