    Hello.

    I am afraid smoked Mackerel is not a HEX on any of the plans.

    BUT on a "green" day you can have 57g of fresh mackerel (presume not smoked).

    I ate smoked mackerel recently and it has a whopping 23% fat! thats why I think. I think the smoking process must affect it, so fresh mackerel is better x

    If Slimming World rates all foods on calorie density its why the smoked stuff is synned.

    Smoking foods removes the moisture, thus making it more calorie dense per 100g say. Like raisins, you dont have to syn the grape but you do the raisin.

    Thanks Hathor and Lexie I guess that makes sense I just knew when I was eating it that it tasted heavy in fat .... its great how I can tell that now with SW .... before I would never have noticed. Tasting that made me think about how much of it I should eat and stop eating .. I guess the process is working lol !!!!! Thanks again.
