    Hi

    I remember a long time ago, men and under 16 yr olds could have more syns than us ladies!!

    Is this still the case?

    What do they suggest for a man?

    thanks

    There's a man on this board, sorry can't remember name who has more than 15 syns. His C told him to, perhaps he'll be along to the thread in case I got that wrong!

    As far as I'm aware children don't have more syns but they do have more HE's.

    I've heard this advice before - but personally stuck with the 5-15 (and when i started typically maxing at 15 a day every day).

    I can understand where the advice comes from - but much preferred being on a level playing field as everyone else - no jealousies about having extra syns.

    These days - i struggle to have 15syns anyhow.

    The official answer (which I think is a little unhelpful!)

    Q: How many Syns can I have each day?

    A:
    For steady weight loss most people enjoy around 5 to 15 Syns a day, though this varies with height, weight and lifestyle. Members with more than 1 or 2 stones to lose, more physically active members and men tend to lose weight safely and well on more than 10 Syns as a basic daily allowance.

    When I first joined Slimming World about 15 years ago, the guideline was 10 sins for women and 15 sins for men (they weren't called 'syns' back then :D).

    Looks like it's still roughly the same, with a bit of wiggle room and consultant discretion built in to tailor the plan as neatly as possible to every individual member.
