    I follow EE on Slimming World, this is my first week and I'm just scared to have syns, I want to lose as much as possible (obviously) but have been told I should have some have syns.

    The only syns I've really been having is like 1 tiny aero chocolate bubble thing (theres like 200 in the packet haha) and stir fry sauce.

    I'm worried if in week 2 i start having syns everyday I'll experience a weight gain, but now understand I need to have syns to stop me giving up. But I'm wondering if eating syns will help the weight loss physically aswell as physcologically?

    Does anyone know if say a "healthy sin" is worse than a "non healthy sin" (crisps/chocolate etc.?) if the same syn count is consumed?

    Sorry if these are all newbie stupid, questions! Waiting for your reply :) x

    Have your syns! Even if you had the full 15 every day it only adds up to 300 calories a day or 2100 over the week, so not even enough for one pound in weight.

    And a syn is a syn irrespective of what you use it for. Yes some foods may be more nutritionally sound than others but the purpose of syns is to make sure you do not feel deprived so use them for whatever you need to

    Dont be scared to use your syns to have treats. I've been doing SW for 7 weeks and used the full 15 every day. I've lost every week totalling 1 stone 3 pounds!! I have choc and cheese every day!! Yum!!'

    Hi! Answered your questions in purple!

    The long and short of it is- don't be afraid to have your syns. Have them and enjoy them, they are part of what makes the plan work! :)

    Good luck! :D

    Hi kettlechip

    I agree completely with what everyone else has said. Have your syns and enjoy them!! I spend all my syns on chocolate every day and I've lost each week so far.

    It really does work. Good luck x

    Eat your syns, your metabolism needs x amount of calories to work at its best, also if you drop too low in your calories you will STORE fat

    on a week i ate little i gained 2lb on a week i ate loads always about 10 syns absolutly ate loads of free food i lost 4 1/2!
