    Hiya!

    I've just switched to SW after losing 84lbs (net) on Atkins but then sticking for ages. I have a load of low-carb products which I'd like to continue using occasionally and which I could guesstimate the syns in but I'd like an "official" count, so if someone could whack them through the syns calculator for me I'd be eternally grateful :D

    They are:

    Atkins Bake Mix (per 100g)
    Protein 43.8g
    Carbs 14.3g
    Fat 2.7g
    Calories 286


    Keto Low-Carb Pasta (per 100g dry weight)
    Protein 64.9g
    Carbs 18.9g
    Fat 2.7
    Calories 351


    I've got a feeling the pasta won't come out as significantly different to nornal pasta (I've only used it once so far on an EE day and counted it as free but I'm sure I will be doing a lot of Red days so an accurate count would be nice). I'm hoping the bake mix will be a lot lower than flour as it works really well :sigh:

    Thanks in advance :)

    PS 8 lbs lost in 4 weeks on SW - happy days! :D

    the bake mix can be worked out using 1 syn for every 20 calories, as it will have no free food allowance.

    the pasta if it is just dried pasta, I would imagine is free.
