    SW
    Hi all
    I've only just started SW this week after reading about it in a magazine here (I'm in TX, USA, but originally from England). I have no other literature other than what I've read on line, and then I found these wonderful forums :). After reading many posts in the overseas section and asking many questions I think I've finally started understanding the whole SW concept. :)

    With that said I'd be grateful if anyone could look at my food diary for today, EE, and help me with syn values.

    Breakfast: coffee w/ 1 tbsp coffee creamer- does anyone know the syn value for this?
    28g Total Bran cereal HExb
    4oz 2% milk, part of HExa
    Banana

    Lunch:
    Large salad w/ 2tbsp ff thousand island dressing (syn value ?)
    Baked potato w/ shrimp. Marinara sauce was made with ff Greek yogurt + ketchup

    Snack: Archers Farm ff yogurt
    Peach

    Dinner: Chicken Chow Mein. Recipe from SW recipe on iPad app.

    Evening treat: WW icecream bar, 120 cals, I'm guessing about 6 syns

    Would appreciate any info/advice. Thanks guys

    Can anyone check my food for yesterday and let me know if I'm doing this right? I'd really appreciate any help. Thanks so much.

    Looks like you are doing well. For things with no free food allowance (snacks type foods, sauces, ice cream, dressings etc) you can use 1 syn for every 20 calories.

    So you can use that for the creamer, dressing, ketchup and ice cream etc
