    Hi everyone

    My hubby is an engineer with a really physical job. Every day I make him a packed lunch normally consisting of 6 slices of bread and fillings along with some fruit. As bread is so high in syn value I am struggling to fill him so I am looking for handy portable and healthy alternatives for him. Have you any favourite packed lunch ideas for a guy working a highly physical job that would fill him up and yet help him lose weight. I understand a man can have up to 15 syns a day is that right? Really appreciate any help you can offer on this. :rolleyes:

    I have to say that the men in my family also have physical jobs and still 6 slices of bread seems excessive for a lunch as none of them have more than 2. But there are lots of lunch ideas on here, there was a thread very recently for lunch box suggestions. I'll go and find the link for you.

    ;)
    Thanks for the links very helpful Ill start digging through those - it may seem a lot but really it covers all his eats over a 12 hour day other than dinner so not so much really for a guy with a really physical job. ;)
