I have a back log of Aldi's Spice Infusion Cous Cous that I'd like to incorporate into my SW meals if possible, but I'm very confused about how to calculate the syns. It's 189 calories for 1/2 pack made up, which should equate to 9.5 syns (using the divide by 20 method).
What's confusing me is...
cold anyone help me with this. I've not been on SW for some time now and I wondered if I could use this as my hex B and if so how many grams please?
I like to have this with some natural yogurt each day and would like to know if I am having way too much.

I have been following SW down to a T the last week, and haven't lost. Been having 3 meals a day, hardly no snacking and exercising. Even been introduced to new foods I wouldn't have normally tried so glad about that!
Granted I could have upped my exercise as I am normally quite active, but...
Even in 2012 I still wasn't happy with my weight, and right now I'd give anything to be back there. I was a size 12 at the time and still wanted to be a size 8 like all the other girls in my class.

I think we have all been here, 'starting again', 'getting back on plan' or however you say that you are ready to commit to a new plan. Because that's just it, you need to be ready to commit. I have successfully lost 5 stone previously on a rival weight loss programme but it took me 3...

Anyone know the syn value of Quaker Oats Porridge To Go, the oat one and the strawberry, raspberry & cranberry one? Struggle to figure out the hex b in this. And if it IS part hex b, how many syns it would be if I used it ON TOP of my hex b?
