    Hey folks, I joined slimming world a week past monday, and although sticking to the diet and doing really well(i thought) I put on 1/2 a pount :cry:... I don't understand, has this happened to anyone else?

    I'm also still struggling with syn values. i log my diary online and chose foods from the drop down menu but I don't know what syn to count it as on EE because they are either in green or red! for instance I used a pasta sauce and when i looked it up it said syn value 6 but in green writing so does that mean its a syn value in 6 on EE too!?

    Hi Hayley - don't get downhearted after your first week - sometimes people take a while to get going and if you've been struggling with syns, that might explain it!

    On EE, as I understand it, you count the lower syn value of the red or green. So, if you look something up and it says 3 syns in green, or 6 syns in red, you would count 3 syns. Hope that helps and good luck on your journey! x
