    It works on most things i have tested, so isnt it true that syns are the calories divided by 20?

    ie Chocolate 100cals = 5 syns

    This is how i calculate things when i dont have my book on me, just wanted to check i was definately right and if i am - share the knowledge!! :D

    That's true it doesn't work for any foods that have a free food allowance but you can use it in an emergency for snacks and treats. For instance Mullerlights are 100 calories but they are syn free.

    I have also noticed that 20cals = 1 syn on most things :D If only everything was like this it'd be so easy to work out all syns :)

    Yes, right if the food has no free food allowance. You could be diddling yourself out of syns if you use this rigidly for everything!
