    I have never done this before but thinking this might work better. Do i just have 70 for the week and use as many each day as i want till they are gone?

    Hi Gemma,

    According to my consultant, flexible syns is actually what allows you to go out for a big night once in a while and 'blow' your syn allowance, but you have to save up Syns beforehand, or deprive yourself afterwards. It's about trying to set a budget when you go 'off plan' for a short period of time but as soon as you are able to, going back onto Food Optimising as normal.

    You can do what you're suggesting by saving up syns/using them all at once, but it's technically not called Flexible syns (and a bit harder)!

    Good luck - have you got a big night out planned or something?

    Having caught another one of your posts on this Gems, I don't think you want to use flexible syns, instead I think you need your syn allowance to be more flexible lol!! I think you might be best doing the following;

    Calculate a weekly total of between 10 and 15 syns a day (70 - 105 per week) - lets assume you choose to use the full 105.

    Give yourself a saturday 'alowance' that will cover your treat meals out - lets say, 50 syns.

    Get a new weekly total - ie if you started with 105, now it is 105 - 50 = 55

    divide that by the remaining 6 days of the week 55/6= approx 9 syns

    What this means is that Sunday to Friday you could have up to 9 syns per day, giving you an allowance of up to 50 for saturday without blowing your weekly 'budget'

    How does that sound?

    So try it for a week or two - it may well work better for you, I have worked it out again to illustrate your numbers:

    eg: normal daily max of 10 syns = 70 per week
    allowance of 30 for saturday
    leaves 6.5 syns per day sunday to friday

    Sounds v good to me *angie* I often find I don't need that many syns during the week, but like to relax with OH and a glass of vino or 2 at the weekend. So 15 sat, 15 sun and then 6.5 for the remaining days - perfecto! :D
