    SW
    Just wanted to say hello, as its my first day of ever doing this diet, Ive tried all different diets over many years, ww, low carb, cambridge, atkins etc.
    Ive never tried SW as it always seemed a little confusing to me, but after speaking to a friend whos been on it for a few months, its a lot clearer to me, so I am going to try EE and see how it goes.
    So far ive had a wholemeal wrap with a couple of quorn sausages with salad and kraft low dressing on. I think that was all free except the wrap, which is a hE,
    Good luck everyone xx

    The thing is with wraps they contain oil, so they have to be synned. I have just checked my bread packets and they don't list oil as an ingredient.

    You can have Asda or Coop pitta bread as a heb as they also contain no oil, however it is only those 2 brands.

    Sorry about that, you got me all excited for a minute as I have wraps in the house :D

    Thanks for letting me know, apparently the asda wraps are 4.5 sins, so now I know!! Mind you, they are pretty huge, so not bad for the sins value.
    Goodluck skittles!

    Just to double check for you
    The asda wraps that are listed for 4.5 syns are 34g so if you had 57g you would need to count more

    Some Pasta n Sauce is free on green if you only make it with water, although you can use milk from you HEB allowance, the Carbonara, Cheese leek and ham, Macaroni, and the Cheese and Broccoli all have a small amount of syns.

    The rice contains syns, but vary from 1 upwards depending on flavour.

    Good luck
