    2 Laughing Cow Ex Light - 1/2 Healthy A
    Slices of tomato

    Muller Light Yogurt

    Dinner:
    Gammon & Pineapple - Healthy B
    Grilled Mushrooms

    Looks fine but you should try and use more syns

    For your dinner - is the pineapple fresh or tinned as tinned fruit has syns

    If it is fresh and you cook it then you also need to syn it

    But these things aside it looks good!

    Hi Circes

    No, the pineapple is tinned so I will look at the syn value of that, thanks!

    I was a bit concerned that I wasn't using enough syns to be honest so think I need to add more?

    Hey

    Looks great, as circes said you may need more syns!!

    Check what mugshot you are having, as some of them are synned!!

    Maybe allow yourself a little choccy or treat to use some syns!

    I would say use at least 10 per day! Your body needs fat to burn fat ;)

    The bread, assuming wholemeal is 6 syns. Also you need to make sure you have the rest of your hexa otherwise this needs to be syned as well.

    Don't forget to weigh your gammon so you get the correct hexb. Or you may want to see how many syns are in the gammon as there may be less & have this as a syn & the bread as a hexb.

    Ok, I just did a search on here re Extra Easy and I think I understand it. Basically, you can have free food from both green and red days but only 1 healthy Extra a and b? Also you need to have 5-15 syns a day?

    Is that right?? xx

    Ah, I've got it now! Thank you. Right, I think I need to look at my menu plan again and structure it under Extra Easy instead!

    Oooh, am actually quite excited about this now! ha ha ;-) xx
