If there is a morrisons near you they do eat smart crisps in mutipacks of 6. Onion rings are 1 1/2 syns; Bacon flavour waffles are 2 syns; Salt and Vinegar fries are 2 1/2 syns.

Quorn cocktail sausages are really good too which you can make up syn free dips or use syns on ketchup, mayonnaise.

Right, lets get you packed off with a bag of goodies so that if you need to snack, it is the right sort of thing :) DO make sure you eat, the more good food you eat, the better your weight loss.

How about a selection of grapes/cherries/nectarines
Carrot sticks
Boiled eggs/ham/sliced chicken (depending on your plan)
Ryvita (as HE) if you need something savoury
Plenty of water - often confuse thirst for hunger

Which plan are you following and are you able to actually sit and have something to eat? Sorry not sure what you do so having a proper meal may be difficult.

Let me know and I'll think of some more ideas.

Well done on your amazing loss BTW! 45lbs is brilliant :D

Oooooh! not long till you qualify Hun! Congratulations are in order. Will you be able to get a job? Your weightloss is impressive! There is always a stache of chocolates from grateful patients! So you don't have long to put up with night duty! (that would really tip my world upside down!) Could you pack up a potato salad (if you're on green or EE) or if you do red, take a pack of ham and just snack on that? It would have more food value , fill you up and you wouldn't need to use your syns.

If you can take lots of grazing type food ( not grass lol ! ) try to eat every coupleof hours through your shift if you can. Take loads of free foods, and I would suggest you fill up on the green plan foods like pasta , rice , etc. Drink at least 2 ltrs of fluid through thye shift ( take a bottle)

hope you do well. Shiftwork if not that much of a problem, but you need to be prepared BEFORE the shift. And take loads to eat.
