    Edited to now ask how often you eat mince (Extra Lean)

    Can it affect your weight loss if you eat it often or is that when its Lean??

    Just wondering if one of those free foods that should be eaten with care is all.

    Thanks!

    Hi All!

    I've fallen for the 3 for £10 meat this week and ended up getting lean mince instead of Extra Lean that I always use.

    Does anyone know how many syns I should be counting? Or point me in the right direction to find it out??

    Many Thanks!!

    Thanks!!

    Its from sainsbury's, just under 12% fat.

    Do you think 3 syns per 100g is sensible for me to say then??

    ohh interesting thread!!
    I've just bought from sainsburys (because I like the 3 for £10 range!) and one of them is Sainsbury's Extra Lean Beef Steak Mince 600g I've always counded this as free but now I'm wondering if it is!? I've tried looking in the syn directory and cant find it. Values (per 100g) are:

    Energy = 123kCals
    Protein = 20.5g
    Carbs 0.0g
    Fat 4.5g

    Pack size = 600g

    You got Extra Lean 3 for £10 :eek:

    Thats amazing, mine doesn't do any extra lean, or if they do its gone when I go!!!! I'd count that as free myself.:rolleyes:

    I order it online as I find it easier to plan the weeks meals that way and I spend less as I dont buy all those 'offers'!! I buy what I need rather than what I see!
    I've been fairly impressed at thier online service - rarely out of anything that I order.

    Hoping the extra lean is free!!!

    Cant see why it wouldn't be, I thought all mince was free ie turkey, pork etc as long as it was extra lean.

    Unfortunately Sainsburys don't deliver to us but I'm doing a tesco shop tomorrow and shall be stocking up hopefully! Just gotta use the last 'Lean' mince in the fridge and Syn it!!!

    bummer sainsburys dont deliver in your area! I wanted to use ASDA, but they dont deliver to me - amazing as there is a massive ASDA less than 2miles from me!!!:sigh:

    Best of luck with your lean mince x

    So, I thought i'd just double check on the Sainsbury's ws and they say they do deliver to me! I've found a £10 off first order but the delivery is £3.50 upwards and thats waiting till tues. If I order more than £100 its free but i'd really have to super plan to justify spending that much!!!

    Weird they say they do deliver to me as I always do my shopping through mysupermarket and they say they don't deliver. I think i'll believe Sainsbury's though!!!

    Yep, that one's Free. :) If it's <5% fat ie less than 5g per 100g its free. But to check I sent it through the calculator:

    Free per package/portion on Extra Easy

    The 3.50 delivery charge is a bit of a bummer - but I find that it actually saves me money ultimately as I dont pick up loads of stuff I don't need. The ordering on-line bit takes a while to get used to, but know I do my shopping in 10mins while I'm watching tv! x
