Ok so basically im having a date night tonight with the hubby and we always share a pot of pringles while watching a film. I only have between 0-6 syns a day so if i shared a pot of pringles tonight wwould it really matter? its not like im eating a whole horse....i thought it was still ok to have treats on this diet so what do people think?
Also how many syns do you think a big pot of pringles are?

Dont do it! Go onto youtube and type in 'Pringle on Fire'. Basically, you can get a pringle alight as they have so much fat in them! Imagine how long it will take your body to burn off one of them!

Pringles are evil - you won't be able to stop at 28g - believe me - been there! Why do you only have 0-6syns per day? That's not following the plan!

To be fair if you search on youtube for crisp on fire you see loads of different crisps catching alight so their all as bad as each other. I dont mean to only have 0-6 syns a day i just dont seem to be able to eat more. I did think in the 1st week that syns are only for naughty things so i tried to have as few syns as possible, now i know their essencial i do try to have more but i just dont seem to be able to.

28g of pringles is probably about 7/8 pringles, so still 1 syn a pringle. I would have a packet of walkers french fries, which last longer and are only 4.5 syns for a packet.

You should also be having more than 0-6 syns a day. Especially if you are following extra easy, where the recommended is no less than 10 syns a day. I think they recommend no less than 5 on the original or green plan.

but syned food is allowed food. u have to be careful not to get in the midset of not being allowed higher cal foods- we are all allowed these in moderation hence 5-15 syns a day. if u deprive urself of stuff completely u run the risk of getting fed up and falling off the wagon big style, but also have sensible amounts of these foods helps u to develop understanding of moderation and sensible treats. Be nice to urself- have a treat!

2 glasses of wine and an advent choc takes up my syns!

Other than that it's incidentals when I'm out and I have no choice in things, or I add mini meringues & double cream to my fruit salad dessert to make it feel really good!

I also have scan bran cake which is 1 syn a day every day.

We had a little game at our group a few weeks ago - one tube of Pringles is 40 syns! We discovered very quickly that these should be avoided at all costs - well, for me and the others, we don't think they're worth it!

Dont deprive yourself, this is not a diet remember just healthy eating. A little of what we like really does do us good and stops that feeling of deprivement associated with diets.
Try to incorporate your fav sauces, additional cereals etc and or course choc and crisps. Its helped me to select my fav lower syn value ones and stop at just one rather than the whole lot.
Eat and enjoy

As far as im aware 28g of pringles, all varieties are 8.0 syns on original and green days. Ive just weighed out 28g of pringles and i counted 18 pringles! this works out to 0.44 syns per pringle.. So call it 0.5 syns each.

.. Happy days!

I've just read through the thread and couldn't believe it was 1per crisp so I weighed it out and I got 1/2 syn per crisp. I'd say 10crisps at 5 syns is well worth it.
