    Hello! Started SW diet about 4 days ago and still getting to grips with what is free and what counts as syns (as not signed up so just guessing at the mo:eek:)

    Red day yesterday. This is what I had (hope I'm on the right track...)

    Brekkie
    2 slices of wholemeal toast, one with scraping of butter and one with scraping of jam (I'm guessing 4 syns??)

    Lunch
    Tuna with salad, drizzle of fat-free dressing
    Apple

    Dinner
    Lamb chops (took off fat) with vegetables (cauliflower, brocolli, green beans and carrots)
    Gravy (3 syns??)

    After dinner
    Picked at selection of cheeses (full fat :cry:) with two crackers (not sure I want to know how many syns!!!)

    Snacks
    Two bags of Fridge Raiders Chicken Bites (I'm hoping these are free on red day as just chicken)

    I know that lamb is prob not the best meat to have on the diet but I am visiting my family and they are doing the cooking (this is also why I am also not counting the copious amount of red wine I drank last night either!! - I know it's about 5 syns a glass usually)

    Can anyone give me some guidance as I know this was possibly a bad food day but my main thought was to avoid the carbs. Thanks guys!:D

    Hello "happysparkle (claire)" and Welcome!

    Having a general quick glance over, just a few things.

    Brekkie - was this 2 slices from a small 400g loaf? If not, these can be up to around 6 syns a slice.

    Lunch - Some FF dressing is free, some not - pop over to syns thread and ask - some kind soul will be able to tell you.

    Dinner - Gravy - ask syns thread. But i know that 1 tsp of Bisto Best Beef granuals are 1 syn and 1 tsb of Bisto Best Chicken granuals are 1/2 syn. - Stock cubes free!

    Lamb is fine and free free free if all fat removed on a red day - enjoy!

    Fridge Raiders Chicken Bites - i dont eat these but dont think they are too bad in syns - check syn thread.

    Nice bunch here, hope i have helped a little - enjoy minimins!

    poached egg
    tablespoon of salad cream (2 syns?)

    Lunch:
    Jacket potato and tin of beans
    some garlic cream cheese (full fat unfortunately)

    Dinner:
    Boiled rice
    stir fry veg and noodles

    snacks:
    1 cracker with blue cheese

    Feel really bloated this morning :(
