    Hi - well done i think your syns are about right, you might be best asking in the syn value thread for definate guides to the booze as im not sure about that ( i only sup vodka so only know syns for that).If you accidently have too many B's your right to just syn them. You might find youve lost weight even without being totally on target with your syns this week, depends how and what you were eating before the diet. You might find it useful to pre plan for the next week what your going to have when, i find that if i dont plan and just try to stick to it i end up over synning or having too many HE's or forgetting what ive had when, its definatly a helping hand for me. Im only into my second week but i have probably been on every diet going lol, and i honestly cant believe that this is a diet, once you get your head round it its super. HTH :D xxx

    Thanks Suse, I try to plan at night for the next day so I can make sure I have everything I need. I agree about the booze, it would be good to know the proper values and whether I need to cut down on it more.

    I am sure though that the diet is 100% healthier than what I was doing before so even if I don't lose I am happy I am a bit healthier:)

    As far as the extra syns go for the b's, I have endeed up going over on 2 days, but got a bit confused and also down to lack of planning but it is a mistake (hopefully) not to be made again!.

    Well done to you btw for not putting on, hope I have done the same at least:fingerscrossed:

    These were the only ones I could find online. I agree that planning will help stop you making mistakes with your HE. Health arguments aside I think you should cut back on your alcohol syns so that you have some for other treats, otherwise you'll eventually get fed up and go off track. Also try to vary your breakfast instead of having the same thing every morning. This also applies to HEs - having a variety will stop you getting bored. :)

    Thanks, fortunately it wasn't special brew only tetley bitter (around 3.4%). Yes as it is my first week I have not cut right down on the booze enough yet really, but will go to one can/aglass of wine only next week to make way for the odd treat. Can't wait to have a jaffa cake or 2!:D. I think I have the b's more or less taped now and will have something else for brekkie tmw, maybe some fruit. Cheers, Suzanne
