    The calculator should be used as a last resort as it's not always 100% accurate. How old is your directory? Syns online is the most updated version but there is always room for error. When in doubt err on the side of caution so I'd go for the 5 Syns

    Thank you. Its mental how the directories are so different, but only 1 year apart. I would have gone by that if i hadn't been on here.

    Not sure if I was too late, but at least you know the SW website was right!!

    It is mad that there are so many differences but I suppose we should be grateful they are continually updating and making the diet better each year hey!

    It is important to have the up to date literature or to check on the site as a lot can change from one year to the next. Ingredients/recipes can be changed and research can also cause them to alter the Syn values

    Isn't it great how on the ball sw are with updating things. Lol a woman in my work is using a book from the ninties, and a book called in the can from a time when the mac cheese was free. I told her that it has all changed now and that they are no longer free, however her reply was that it worked then so it will work now:eek::eek::eek:

    I can understand why people say that but the fact is, manufacturers change the products so those products technically no longer exist

    However Banana's, peas and sweetcorn were Syns,a lot has changed over the years!
