    I was going to email my consultant but i feel i sound bonkers emailing this so ill ask on here...

    I eat on average 5-7 syns a day, I read that people actually do better on 10+ syns and i would like to get to that im doing pretty darn well but, if i hit a wall i would like to be able to cut down syns to try and boost iykwim

    my 5-7 syns are usually, things ive added on just to give me some syns, a hi-fi bar and hot choc usually

    i dont use butter I use quark for butter and pretty much everything lol

    I am doing a mix of EE and green/original

    i have some dietry problems, I cant eat red meat other then small amount of mince (sets off IBS) and I can not have dairy other then 1 portion of cheese/yougurt a day no other kinds of dairy because the lactose is too high i get really quite poorly (so no chocolate lol)

    (For Hex A i always have 250ml rice milk)

    I could easily live off 0 syns i think all my meals are pretty much syn free

    i really struggle with what else i can add to boost it, obviously i dont want to end up over eating to do it

    What about some boiled or fruity sweets? Fruit pastilles and the like?

    I always added crisps or had another small meal of something like tinned ravioli to get me over 8 syns a day :)

    ooo i like pink wafers going to add them to the shopping now lol

    I dont really drink, i have 3 kids under 5 so is hard to hit the alca-ma-hole and i dont like non diet fizzy drinks lol or i would chuck in a glass of fizzy lol

    Im doing EE now to try and see if i will use more as ive less Hex but i never really used all my Hex anyway lol

    I never thought i would be worried about not having enough treats haha but after i lived dairy,soy,egg free for 3 months i got used to the no treats lol

    Why don't you cook with olive oil occassionally instead of frylight? 1 tablespoon is 6 syns. Or bertolli do a spray with is 1 syn for 4 sprays. Maybe add gravy to meals, or have the occasional glass if wine?

    I don't know if this will help but I used to know a vegan.... so no dairy etc..... but she could eat Fry Chocolate Creams bars. No animal involved. Might help if you have a bit of a sweet tooth.

    Just a thought....

    goes back to hiding

    In this case I would add in some treats that are good for you:

    A glass of red wine; nuts; flaxseed in your porridge/on your fruit etc; a dash of olive oil on your salads.
