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!

I daren't work mine out!!! Would be interesting though.....

All I know is that it works and has done for nearly 2 years! I do often hear "can you really eat ALL THAT on your diet" and I confidently say "YES"!!!!!!!

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!

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