    Hello

    Ive been reading throug some posts and food diarys and...

    **i hardly ever eat all my syns**

    will this have a impact on my weight loss? - should i try and eat them or just stick to the couple im having (maybe 3) per day?

    thanks!!

    A straight answer to the 'will it effect my weight loss' is, in my opinion, no it won't.

    However the syns are there to be used to make your diet more varied and to give you something to cut down on when you get nearer target or if your weight loss gets stuck. Also they teach you how to handle what are considered treat foods. If this is a change of lifestyle then you aren't going to go forever without chocolate or crisps or sauces etc, so you might as well learn to handle them in moderation.

    Hey eternity thanks for the swift reply!

    maybe i will just carry on as i am and use them if i want them.

    also what are your views on saving up syns and using them for a night out for example?

    thank you!! :D

    I always use my syns weekly and use them as I want them. I use most at the weekend.
    Slimming World say it's fine to save syns if you want to as long as you don't feel deprived during the days that you have less syns.

    I'm only 4 weeks in but deliberately chose SW so I could syn more on a weekend! :p I really don't bother during the week but weekends invariably include alcohol so it suits me fine! ;)

    thanks for the advise :eek:
