hey guys, in confused:confused:

my leader at my group said all ainleys hariets couscous is free, so ive been eating a lot and i love it, but i cant find it my book or on here, does anyone know if its true?

also when i did this diet years ago, all batchalors, rice and pasta n sauces were free too, i know some are and some not, can you list her which are free please

and is supernoddles free too, as i its says in book on green day is, couscous, noodles, pasta and rice are free, but does this just mean the plain ones


so are
ainsleys cousous;s free?
batchelors, rice, pasta n noodles, which are free?

i love these foods and it doesnt tell you in the book which onnes are:mad:

i do find these new books have a lot less info on stuff in them, my old red and green book was a lot more helpful, thank god for this site:p

Also... only the "Low Fat Super Noodles" are free, the rest have syns. They dont have many syns in the full fat ones (about 5 i think) but your better off with the syn-free low fat supernoodles.

Any noodles/rice that are plain and dried are free. So say for example you buy some dried plain packet noodles - they are free - but if you buy some 'wet' noodles from the chilled section then they have syns in them as they have oils in them to keep them moist.

This list might be of help to you too. Its a list of the syn values for a WHOLE packet of pasta in sauce (excluding milk and butter): http://www.minimins.com/syn-values/151267-frequently-asked-syn-values-pasta-n-sauce-find-here.html

Do you have access to the Lifeline Online? If so, you can access the syn values to most supermarket foods on there :)

Hope that helps.

hi love, i said i have no credit hun:)

but i did email her got the password, joined up and its brill, im overwhelmed by all those recipes lol, how will i get through them all:p

and one thing id like to ask if ive been filliing in my food diary on the paper in our packs, but would much rather just do it online, its neater and easier, or do you still have to hand those in on wiegh day, as i use to have to?

Do the online diary, it's so much easier and you can print it out if you need to take a copy to hand in. The syns online is really helpful too.
yea its amazingly easy, no more sitting for half hour looking in my book and giving in coz i cant find things, i just go on here type it in and there it is, i love this:D

It gets a bit addictive. I couldn't cope with the paper diary at all and I found the SW book really confusing at the start. Once I found the online stuff it all began to make sense.
