    Yes I'm afraid they will have a syn value because you are eating oil. I don't know about the capsules but you may be able to work it out from this

    Basic/Non Branded Foods Cod liver oil 1 level tsp

    All oils are the same syn value as far as I know

    As for the soya mince the dried TVP/soya protein is free but the frozen is

    Basic/Non Branded Foods Textured vegetable protein (TVP)/soya protein, frozen 100g raw

    Ho thank you so much for this, my consultant could not answer either of these questions. The soya I bought is dried, flavoured soya mince. It says it defatted on the list of ingredients on the back of the pack, its neals yard bought from holland and barratt if this helps. Is this the reason im not losing any weight due to me taking the cod liver oil and flaxseed oil?

    I shouldn't think so - unless you are chucking them back! I doubt there's even as much as a tsp of oil in each capsule.

    Why not post a food diary in the sub-forum so we can take a look. How long have you been on SW? What was your diet like before? How close to target are you and what's your consultant got to say about it? Sorry for all the questions but it's difficult to give suggestions without knowing what you're eating etc.

    There's nothing in the book, or online about evening primrose/starflower/omega 3 being synned, so maybe SW opinion on them has changed.
