    hi :D
    Just wondeirng, when the syn values say "per average takeaway serving" do they mean the whole container, or do they mean the serving u should dish urself out if ur not greedy arse like me?
    I love a special chop suey, and figure this probably isnt too bad an option, if anyone knows the syn value for the whole container of that i would be grateful...


    ps, i want to eat it allllll

    In the book it states per 360g or whatever the serving size is. I'm hoping for a take away tonight but I don't usually weigh it out.

    Good luck

    You need to be really careful with this. Some people have weighed what comes from takeaway and it can be twice the weight quoted in the book or even more. So that could easily double the syns you think you've had. Definitely weigh it!
