    Well, a very basic rule of thumb is 20 cals per syn although this doesn't count for everything.... certainly not for foodstuff with a free food allowance but it does pretty much work out 20 cals per syn for biscuits, chocolate etc.

    Don't worry about calories though if you are following SW!!!!! There's no need!

    The very simple facts of weight loss are: Consume less than you burn off! That's great but it doesn't take into account what different foods do in our bodies. I think that is only true of empty calories and SW has studied this to make foods free and allow us the simplicity of not counting calories. I love SW!

    Calorie counting and shakes
    If I'm buying a sneaky bag of crisps I will look at calories and fat content etc because it gives an indication of syns and I can't carry my laptop round the supermarket typing in the syn calculator!

    For things like 'junk' food you can easily work out the Syns from the calories: 1 Syn=20 cals
