    I'm on day 3 and I have to admit, I've been kinda struggling to use all my Syns (not a huge fan of the name either)

    I genuinely enjoy healthy food so this diet seemed too good to be true, but now I get it.... my first cravings!!!

    I'm on my first green day and I am craving meat!!!

    I've been trying to plan how I use my Syns but I finally see that it's about satisfying the urges without breaking the diet!!!

    Now I have a dilemma!! I've saved today's so I can go out tonight and have 3 G&Ts but would I rather drink water to be able to grill the bacon medallions and nibble on those..... hhhmmmmm:confused:

    ooohh decisions, decisions ! I would go with the alcohol.

    I must admit it took me a few days to get used to it.

    Good Luck

    have you had your healthy extras, on a green day you can count the meat as a healthy extra.

    Not sure if you know this but be careful when ordering your gin a lot of pubs now use 35ml measures so the syns are more :eek: many sw syns are based on 25ml's.

    have a great night

    Thanks guys. I've had my healthy extras for today but now I'm looking back and regreting the Ryvita when I could have had bacon!!!

    Thanks Soccermom, the book uses 35ml servings so I thought it would be better to assume that and come in under on my points...

    maybe do weekly syns - instead of daily syns??

    thats what i tend to do - as i use more syns over the weekend - check out my food diary if you need a better explanation (under the Food Diary section!!) xxx
