    Hey everyone :)

    I have saved my syns to have a take away tonight with OH.

    Now looking at syn values it says 340g, 360g serving etc. I'm not sure if a serving is the whole of the platic/tray container :confused:

    Random question I know. Does anyone know the answer lol x

    Do you have a scales at home? Weigh it when it turns up to get an accurate estimate.

    Do you have scales? You could weigh it I guess! Failing that I always count one of the plastic trays as a portion, I had Vegetable Chow Mein so I counted it as 7syns for the whole container. Im not sure if thats wrong or right... Next time I might weigh it! x

    Definitely weigh it as servings can vary wildly between restaurants. I've seen them be as much as 700/800g which makes a huge difference to your syns.
