    Managed to shift 3.1lbs of unwanted material this week dispite everything! So happy bunny today. I thought steroids were supposed to hinder weight loss, but this week has been my best for ages. Maybe I should have another course lol.

    Can somebody tell me if you cook with wine/spirits and you burn the alcohol off, are the syns still the same as if you were drinking it straight or are they lower?

    And, last of all, what chocolate do you think is the best value for syns, not necessarily what your favorite is if you know what I mean, basically, what do you get the most of lol.

    Well done sweetie!! Woohoooooooo! xxx

    P.S Not sure about the alcohol...I'd personally be tempted to not count them myself and I am strict on myself BUT that's just me. And I love flakes...4syns worth. Yum!

    Fantastic, mate. Well done!

    I have always wondered about the alcohol question too! Guess it depends on how strict you are (I don't syn it but class this as being naughty)

    Mars Ice cream bars are 7 syns (the ones from a multipack)- a syn bargain for me as they feel soooooooo wrong

    well done! i would count full syns I would always rather over estimate than count less than the item should be.

    I love the nestle choc orange matchmakers only 1 syn each so I normally have 4 and this satisfies my choc cravings!!

    Well done!!
    I too have wondered about cooking with alcohol. Before I started SW I used to add a bit of wine etc to lots of things but have stopped as was worried about using extra syns. It makes sense that as the alcohol cooks out the syns would lower but by how much I don't know. Be good if someone could find out!!!
