    HELP!! lol

    How does it work out if I have SW chips on a red day? Can they be a HEb or are they syns? If they can be eaten as a HEb how many grams can I have?

    Thanks in advance from a newbie & fussy eater :D lol

    They can be a B choice if you keep the skins on and have 227g.

    No HEXB as they are peeled!

    Why not do an Extra Easy day and have them for free?

    Whats an extra easy day? Never heard of it?!?! lol

    So I could have potato wedges with the skins on then? That would be ok. 227g with skins on?

    That's right -
    227g with skins on = B choice on a red day
    227g peeled = 16 syns on a red day (2 syns per 28g).

    Extra Easy is a new plan where you can have free food from both red and green plans - search and you will find several excellent threads explaining it :)

    Just looked in the book, it says chips, homemade without any fat, baked 1 syn per 28g.

    Looked at potatoes on red syn values new potatoes in skins 1 syn per 28g

    old flesh only 1 syn for 28g but if you leave the skin on old potatoes you get 57g for 1 1/2 syns.

    Oops! :sign0007::booboo:

    Princess Sausage is completely correct. (i had never turned over the page for the chips bit)

    I have always used 2 syns/28g, and now realise that this is cooked weight baked potato inc skin.

    I am actually relieved that :

    a. its not as bad as I have always counted and
    b. people don't believe everything they read

    It is alright to use your Heb potato with skin on for wedges but if it's not your Heb you would have to count syns for it.

    If they had the skins on I think you can count them as a healthy b If you dont have a b left you will need to count 8 syns I think, actually perhaps 6 as they are old potatoes skin on and you get 57g for 1 1/2 syns. I have even confused myself and I know this plan backwards!!!!
