    Hi all!

    I have been doing the Slimming World diet for 3 weeks now. I have so far managed to lose 10lb.
    And just by eating the meals I make my hubby has lost 6lb too!

    He hasn't been following the plan properly, but this week he wants to try counting syns, healthy extras, etc. He's wondering if he can have extra healthy extras or syns as he's a man and generally men are allowed to consume more calories. Does anybody know the answer to this?

    To the best of my knowledge, no. It's expected that he'd eat a higher volume of free and superfree foods instead :)

    Ah yes but SW doesn't count calories.

    Besides, I wasn't allowed any and I take it seriously. So tell him "no";)

    Nope - us men are just the same - 5-15syns and HE's according to which plan you're following.

    bulk it out with the fruit and veg - and he won't notice the difference - except on the scales. :)

    (i have heard it said before that some consultants have given men or those with more to loose a few extra syns or another HeB - but as a rule - this isn't typical and very much down to consultants discretion)
