    ok so this may be stupid and just me being hopeful.
    but im guessing a healthy extra is around 6 syns worth as an aplen light is 3 syns and u can have two and a hifi is 6 syns and u can only have one.ok so that makes sense.
    but i bought weetabix oaty bars this week as my super market were out of alepn lights.now they are tiny so i thought 2 would be a heathy extra.but no they are 3.5syns per bar so its only 1 for a HE.

    so today i am having a success express day and have had two of these oaty bars for my two healthy extras.do you think however i could have 3 as my two healthy extras as technically thats only 6.5syns which isnt all the fibre i should be having.

    is this just me being hungry and wanting another or do you think this makes sense?

    I would say no to that. Healthy extras are calculated by the amount of fibre/calcium that's in them etc so one weetabix oaty bar at 3.5 syns must have the equivalent amount of fibre to the Hifi bar/2 alpen light bars.

    Yeah babyloo is right. Technically, calorifically you might get away with it, but it hasn't got the right amount of nutrients. Alpen lights have also got probiotic in them as well as a high fibre content - hence why you can have 2. The Oaty Bars, are delcious but not high in fibre :)

    Actually the Oaty bars have more fibre (5.6g) than the Alpen lights (5.3g) per bar. But you can only have one as two would be more than the maximum 6 syns for a HE. Sometimes I will take 2 as a HE and count the extra syn. I think that as long as it's not a regular occurence and doesn't impact on your weight loss then go ahead with what you've suggested.

    I have just checked with my SWC who says if you have more than one, the second must be synned completely. xx
