    Newbie here! I've got the food optimising plan book (and I'm not online), I was wondering if there was a method of working out how many syns in something if it is not in the book. I used to do weight watchers and they had a calculator - anything like that? Or any tips on how to know!

    Unfortunately they don't have a calculator like weight watchers but there is one on the sw page, if you're a member of a group you get access to this. You can work out the syns of some things (or foods without free foods in them) by this :
    1syn = 20 calories

    For example: a pack of multipack quavers is 88 calories: 4.5 syns
    However some things you can't work out like this because they have a free food allowance so this rule only really helps on crisps snacks etc but hope it helps a bit x
