You should use at least 5 of your syns a day, depending on what else you are eating you will not consume enough calories otherwise, and you will not be following the deit 100%.

Also when you get closer to target and may have trouble shifting the last few lbs one of the things advised is to lower your syns - if you dont use any then you cant do it that.

Obviously it would be silly to force yourself or eat things you dont want but things like 1tblspn of oil when cooking, flour to thicken gravy and extra cheese are all things that can be used without having to scoff a chocolate bar (unless this is what you fancy)

Hope i've helped :) good luck

Hi and welcome to the forum Jess and to Slimming World.
I'm a restarter and doing EE and I love it.
I use almost all of my Syns each day. I don't know how you manage without them. I have to use them for gravy, salad cream... and my chocolate lol.
If you write you food diary in the food diary section perhaps someone will be able to say if you're doing ok.

Good luck!!

During the day mine usaully go on sauces like light mayo, sweet chilli sauce, tomato because I hate plain things!
Maybe just have a pack of snack a jacks 5.5 syns I think they are each day.
