    I have got into the habit of treating myself to a chinese at the weekends and always have the same thing.

    Spring roll (online says 7 syns for a 60g so I'll double it as I'm unsure how much they weigh) 14 syns
    prawn toast x 6 - 21 syns
    chow mein - (online says 7 for 380g so again i'll double it and weigh it sat) 14 syns
    1 pot sweet and sour (1 syn per tbsp - it's a foam cup so estimate 15) 15 syns

    all this adds up to 64 syns. If I take my weekly syns and take this figure off and divide it by 6. I'm left with about 8 syns a day.

    Am I allowed to do this - if so would u recommend it?

    Yes you can use your syns this way. I always have the majority of my syns on a saturday night, last Saturday I had 53.5 syns :eek:

    I use my syns weekly, rather than daily so some days I'll have 30 and others only 5. I always have a curry in the week, though I have started to have boiled rice with it rather than pilau so that I am better prepared for 'good habits' when I have lost the weight - an to be honest, I haven't missed it!

    Yea as the others have said is fine to use them like that. But dont think your left with 8 a day??
    15 x 7 = 105 weekly syns
    - 64 for chinese
    =41 remaining
    41/6 =6.8 a day left

    I know its only a little different, but all those extra 1.2 syns are gonna add up.

    They say between 5-15 a day, so you could have between 35 and 105 which is a huge difference.

    Ive got a big bar of chocolate here, that is my WI treat night and i cant even eat it cos its making me feel sicky! Cos ive not eaten it all week! *laughs* So i think im not gonna eat anymore - and thats where my syns normally are x
