I have the standard issue book that you get when you join, and the full directory. I also refer to the online syn directory. I find them all invaluable tools. Like anything, you get the hang of using it, but the principles of SW are really very simple to understand and very soon, it all becomes instinctual. :)

Hi Gem,

Unfortunately takeaways on the SW plan are high in syn values (compared to other diets), but there are recipes on here that you can make that taste just as good and sometimes even better than the takeaway and for a lot less money and very little effort.
I love curry, so regularly make all sorts of different ones, but you can just as easily have a green day and make a stir fry with noddles and you will probably make a lot more of it too!!!
