    can anyone give some advice. Will it affect my loss if I don't use all my syns, have only had 20 syns since wednesday (average 4-5 per day), Think I'm frightened to use syns but do eat a lot of free foods

    Id say try and use a few more, the reason I say this is two fold, if you dont use them you are more likely to feel deprived and go totally off the rails and secondly, if you hit a plateau and you need to cut back then your syns are the first thing to go, but if you haven't been having them you can't then cut them out! xxx

    I have read other people advising that you use all your sins to start off with, so that you can drop them if / when weight loss slows down. makes sense to me, although some days I just don't want to eat 15 sins...

    I use mine for sauces. Last night I had a Blue Dragon one with loads of noodles and some chicken and mushrooms. It was lovely! I also spend my syns on mayo and BBQ sauce.
