    Last week, my consultant said to us that she had been told by head office that the new rule was that anyone under 11 stone should have a maximum of 10 syns a day, not 15.
    I was slightly shocked by this, and I cannot find anything written about this new rule...

    What do you think? Has anyone else been told about this?

    I don't know what to do :cry:

    Never heard of this, as far as i was aware regardless of weight you could have up to 15 syns

    Well I think if anybody else had been told we would have heard about it on this forum and there hasn't been a peep. If you have been losing weight on 15 syns a day and are happy with your losses then I see no reason to change.

    Maybe just your consultant being a tad overzealous and trying to get people to cut back on their syns

    As far as I know our group has only been told to have 5-15 syns a day, and the C has never assigned differing amounts to differing weights/targets. So far.

    It was mentioned on one or two threads over the last 2 weeks or so but mostly questions/ rumours, no definitive answers contrary to the 15 per day. Tho I wouldn't be surprised if they introduce it tbh!

    Unless you see it printed on official SW documentation or on the website, then I would always take everything you hear with a pinch of salt (even from consultants).

    If SW are changing the rules, they certainly haven't as yet, and I am quite sure if the rules do get changed, the website will be the first place to be updated.

    If i'm not mistaken 5 syns only equates to 100cals per day, or 700 per week. This is hardly anything so I don't really think it would make much difference to your weight loss. It's a bit worrying that a consultant may be giving out advice that others are not, if that is the case.

    Me & my mum were talking about syns earlier and she said that when she did sw years ago the total daily allowance was 10. I haven't heard anything about the rules changing back to that though x

    When I did sw the very first time (around 2005) it was 10.

    I tend to stick to 10 and then the other 5 are my 'safety net' should they be needed.

    The less you have to lose the slower it seems to come off so I try to stay under 10 anyway!

    my C also sayes that men get 15 and women 10 - having said that, the books do not. Sometimes I think the consultants just tell you what worked for them

    I always have 10 or under as my consultant says "you can have 10-15 but try and stay at ten for the best weight loss" - for once I had 16 yest and felt a bit naughty!

    Most of us are advised to have 10 syns a day in our group.

    If Im honest I find it really hard to eat my syns. I normally use them for sauces, but have never been a big chocolate eater etc. I am naughty some weeks and have a few drinks on a Saturday night but its still within my allowance x

    our c says if you try to stick around 10, the other 5 are a safety net for hidden/forgotten syns. but it is 5-15.

    I always aim for 10 a day/70 a week anyway, so doesn't really bother me! That's what my consultant suggested when I joined.
