As most of you know I live in Canada. We can't get some of the free foods here, like pasta n sauces, and the savoury rices etc. So I was interested in what the nutrional information was to see if I can find substitues for them. Anyway found the nutrional information online and out of interest entered it into the syns calculator and guess what, it is telling me that it has syns. When on their syns guide it says they are free (and yes I am selecting free foods, and so on) So out of more interest I decided to enter the nutrional information for a plain old chicken thigh, no skin with bone removed and guess what. Yep is telling me that has syns too. When we all know it is a free food. So now of course I am doubting everything I am eating and highly frustrated, as how the heck do I find substitutes for some things, if their syns calculator is inconsistant. Their formula or whatever it is they use clearly doesnt work. I thought if I could find some substitutes for some things it would be really handy, but of course I now just feel annoyed lol. I have emailed slimming world, so I hope they have an answer for me. Has anyone else come across this with the syns calculator. I just feel right now that the calculator is pretty pointless if it doesnt work correctly. Sorry for the rant.
