    As long as you weigh out the pasta before you cook it as a Healthy extra b choice then this is fine, you dont have to syn it. xxx

    Its a 1/4 of a normal portion, so its going to fill about 1/4 of your plate if that gives you an idea.

    Can you not swap to an EE day - and syn the extra HEB or HEA you have had? might make you feel less 'cheated' on the plan??

    I find it a paltry amount and try to stay clear of pasta on red days!! It just doesn't cut the mustard for my 'healthy' appetite ;)

    I remember when I used to do WW years ago and I was a student so saved all my points for alcohol...I'd have a two point portion of pasta with lots of zero point veg. They were hard times. It was less than THAT!

    God, I love SW! xx
