    Were you eating quite healthily before?? It may be you were following quite a healthy diet before so it might take a bit longer to kick in for you

    You should be having more syns than just 5 a day I think. That's only 35 a week.

    Where are the vegetables?!! Your body needs a wide range of different vitamins and minerals which fruit alone can't provide.

    Also, keeping your syns low can slow your losses, up it to 10 or 15 and see what happens.

    Cutting your syns down won't speed up your losses, and many people on here have found it slows your losses down.

    Just up your superfree and super speed foods to give things a boost

    I found that low syn weeks didn't help my losses. It's important to eat what you're allowed to (that way you have something to cut out later if you're struggling when you're close to target). I have at least 10 per day but aim to have my full 15.

    Also are you drinking enough? You should be drinking at least 2 litres a day.
