I don't know what anyone else does, but if I only eat 1 Aplen Light I just class it as half a healthy extra. I don't go to class, so have not heard about having to syn something if you don't eat enough of it to make a healthy extra. Sorry, that isn't much help at all is it?! :eek:

I can across this sometime ago & asked my C for clarification. The answer is yes if you don't eat all your hex e.g. just one weetabix you will need to syn it.
The problem is some consultants say this and other don't so we are trying to get clarification from SW. I've been a member for 9 years and never heard anyone told this.

Yes that's fine - just because a food is a HE doesn't mean you can't have it at another time and just syn it. When I was losing weight I would frequently use my syns for extra cheese or bread. The alpen lights are 3 syns by the way.

I seem to do this quite often replacing the 2nd Alpen Light for a piece of bread and don't think it's made any difference. Not sure on the official SW viewpoint though.

That's called splitting your HEs and SW say you can do that as long as there is only one food in the HE. So cereal bars can be split but not porridge because the HE is porridge plus a scan bran, and it's difficult to divide in two accurately.
