Oops, it seems my smoothies aren't free, I have to count fruit if it's pureed. Does anyone know why?

Anyway, my smoothie was 6 syns :eek:

They are synned because basically you can eat way more fruit if you puree or juice it (I believe)

Ah right, i thought it must change the composition of the fruit or something. Thing is, I could eat fruit till it comes out of my ears but I can't seem to have as much as a smoothie.

Oh well, I don't think i'm going to count them in future, seems silly when I could quite happily eat the fruit that goes into them 3 times over.

Thanks D_Q.

I'm not 100% sure honey - check with your consultant if you get the chance. I know what you mean about eating masses of fruit - I get through bucket-loads some days!! :p

Having a green day today, going to try mullerlight with cous cous for breakfast, not sure how it will taste but everyone tells me it's lovely. Must make the effort to do at least 10 mins on the airwalker today too.

Everyone at our group go on about how nice muller light is on weetabix. I tried it but didn't like so next time I soaked the weetabix with a little bit of milk then poured the muller over it and it was so much scrummier. I have never had couscous am I missing out on much?:D

The cous cous and muller was a pleasant surprise, It was nice and so much more filling than just the yogurt. I had it with a raspberry and cranberry muller, might try it with toffee next.

Oh I was reading my SW mag before and I was reading the Ask our experts section. One of the questions was:

Q. Why do smoothies and juices count as Syns when fruit and vegetables are free?

A. The less you have to chew a food, the easier it is to over-eat, because you are virtually missing out on one of the first stages of feeling full and satisfied: chewing. Think how long it would take to eat six whole apples, for example. If these apples were juiced they immediately become so much easier to eat, so you could find your self eating lots of extra calories before you feel full.

Hope this sort of answers your question.:D

Yesterday was a green day. I ate so much that I felt bloated all evening. I still don't see how I can eat this much and still lose weight, It just seems to defy all logic :confused:.
