    I'm really struggling to give up my fresh orange juice - friends are telling me different syn values for 300ml of fresh orange juice from concentrate - brand is princes.
    Hope someone can help as I can't get in contact with my consultant till Monday
    Thanks x

    There won't be a free food allowance, so you can use the 20 calories = 1 syn rule. :)

    Basically as a (very) general rule if there is no free food allowance in whatever it is divide the number of calories by 20 and that's how many syns it is.

    It's only a very rough guide but handy if you don't have access to syns/calculator.

    Not a (very) general rule - it's exactly the way the snackulator works on the slimming world website :)

    It's a tool on the member's section of the SW website for working out syns on foods that don't have a free food allowance - but as it works using 1 syn for every 20 calories you might as well just do that
