    Hi ladies... Ok so I joined slimming world last week after putting it off for what seemed like forever (reason being I thought I was the only person who wouldn't be a skinny minny - silly I know) but I was put at ease both by my leader and the group. Had a great week so far and really enjoying the plan, nothing like any diets I've tried before... Basically can eat the majority of the same food but cooked differently... Love it :)

    Anyway, was out for a family meal tonight and struggled a bit with the menu so I need a bit of help with syn values. I had penne pasta with chicken+prawn which I pressume is all free but it was served in a garlic cream sauce along with 1 slice of garlic bread... So ladies any ideas?

    Thanks in advance :) xxx

    Hi and congratulations on starting SW - it really is a great plan

    Not really sure about Syn values but looking in my book, the nearest is possibly tagliatelle carbonara which is 15 on red or 12.5 on green
    garlic bread, average slice 4.5 syns.

    It is usually better to go for tomato based sauces as these work out a lot lower on syns.
    the pasta, chicken and prawns woulde be free but you would need to also have 1/3 plate of superfree for this to count as EE

    I find it really difficult when going out for a meal and tend to just eat what I like and then draw a line under it and get straight back on plan the next day. As long as this doesn't happen every day then just think of it as 1 meal out of 21 (in a week) and it shouldn't affect weight loss

    good luck

    Great help, thanks so much :)

    Have been doing great sticking to my plan using mainly about 6 syns a day so excluding today I hope to have done enough to give me a loss :)

    Thanks again xx

    Ah thank you, just browsing through the links+some really helpful tips on here, love it :)

    Advice on 2 more syn values please anyone... Green tea with a hint of cranberry (I'm thinking it's maybe free but just would like to double check)... And a Cadbury Light Mousse. I did mail the same thing in the syn value link but in case it takes a while for replies+seeing as I'm typing here anyway. Thanks xx

    I think it will be free, have put it into the online syn calender on SW site and it just comes up with herbal and fruit teas which are free.
