    Hi I'm new went to first class on Wed eve - are leader said only men get 15 syns and women should only use between 5 and 10 syns a day. Mainly focusing on not using more than 7 a day!

    Is this what most of us are doing?

    That's so not true!! You can have up to 15 a day and they are there to use. There is no difference for men or women. Syns are part of the plan and are so we don't feel deprived. I don't think I could manage on 7.

    SW advise not to go below 5 and most stick to 5 to 10. Personally, I have 15 most days and it's never done me any harm.

    If you have too few, you have nothing to cut down on as you near your target or if you struggle for a bit.

    Have what you need, up to and including 15 a day. Oh, and enjoy them! :)

    I very rarely get to 5, but you can have between 10 and 15 for the plan to work effectively.
    I just dont want the syns and dont feel deprived.

    Mine has always said between 10 and 15 a day and I usually use most of them. I am however experimenting this week and only going to use up to 10 a day to see if it does make a difference with weight loss.

    I've always been told 15 a day too. I try to stick at about 10 so i can have extra treat at weekend if I want one. I dont think i'd cope at 7 either!!

    I start the week with 105 (15 x 7) and count down, that way if I go over one day (yorkshire puddings and gravy are a must sometimes!!) then I don't feel like I've ruined a whole week.

    For example, Monday night I had 48! and for the rest of this week I've had about 5 per day! Not sure the flexi syns thing is for everyone, but it seems to be ok for me.

    I think it all depends on your weight and what stage you are at. Some people with loads to lose have been told to have as many as 25!!

    If you nearer the end you might only be able to have 5.....I think its what works best for you. If you can eat 15 and still lose then what the hell!!
