I cant always see your 2 HEA and HEB's?? On a green you can have 2 of each every day.
It also doesnt look like your taking advantage of all the GREEN free food, and then using quite a lot of syns. I think i'd be hungry on your food.
hi i only have the green food list to hand right now but its veggies and pasta, rice and lentils right? which is mostly what i eat. My Hexa/b are normally nimble and some kind of meat. i don't get hunrgy though. I am working on the syns as i fell off the wagon yesterday.

dont forget potatoes. :) chips and wedges and rosti and crisps ( some debate on there freeness!) mash and jackets.... i eat a lot of tatas in a week.
A lot of Quorn is FREE, maybe to boost the 'meat' content. (eg 85g mince beef isn't that much really)

Think if you were able to fill up on free and satisfying food, the falling off the wagon with the syns may improve.
I plan in a pudding every evening, normally for 3 syns so i know i have something sweet to have after dinner and not massively high in syns.
thanks.. the taters have to be home made don't they.
I forgot so say i also eat every 3/4 hours
