    My consultant reckons that if you are out and about and very stuck, you could look at calories and count 1 syn for every 20 cals. Obviously this is inaccurate (as it doesn't count free food or fibre etc etc), but it can sure put you off stuff if you are about to reach for something you shouldn't!

    Kim,how did you get on? did you eat it?
    I really enjoy the mince and onion quorn pudding but have not had one since starting coz I know I can only really have half of it @10syns so waiting for someone to come for tea so they share it with me. MMmmmm with mash and carrots and greens with gravy.

    I haven't seen the pies you are talking about, but it does seem a lot for a quorn product - Is it big enough to have half and count as 10 or do you have someone else you can feed it to?

    Yeah, you can check syns online but you'd need the weekly password, which you get from group.
    I think I saw a thread with passwords in though...?
