    This is something im struggling with too, im not eating enough and struggling to use my syns....altho today i had a large cookie from asda (its been a bad day lol) which was 11 syns

    ive been trying little things to bulk them out, like adding butter and cheese to my mash

    I've already learnt a lot on here in a short time- one of the main things is "Use your sins!" You'll end up loosing less weight if you don't... :)

    Definitely use all of your syns.

    I use mine on chocolate, cakes, scotch pancakes, yogurts (I don't like Muller Lights), Mince Pies, Cheese, more bread and anything else I fancy.

    Sometimes I have to sit there and think what I can eat just to use them all!!!

    I use them on a mixture of treats like salted nuts or choc, extra cereal bars, also very occasional ready meal if I'm in a hurry, extra cheese or bread

    I make sure to use them as much as possible to make my meals better like having gravy or bread sauce etc. i don't like to use them all on choc or sweets.

    What about scan bran? I know it's not the most delectable of treats but last week our consultant challenged us all to eat a pack of scan bran each then this week we had all lost so much weight we thought the scales had gone wrong (I still think the scales were wrong) so this week I bought 2 packs and am going to try and eat at least one scan bran a day.

    I was having trouble using all my syns too, so started adding them to my meals. I found I was so full after tea I didn't want anything else. So now I add some cream to pasta sauces, or red/white wine for cooking, sugar for sweet treats or flour for thickening sauces.

    This is something I'm really struggling with as well. I just can't seem to get 15 down me in one day! I don't like using them on chocolate/crap either

    I have a toffee cornetto (tesco own) pretty much every day for 8.5 syns. Some days that's all my syns. Other than that it's things like english mustard, salad cream, hot chocolate, ginger biscuits

    My C mentioned something about being able to make nice things with Scan Bran which I very much doubt! She said she made something similar to a Forero Roche before!! Anyone tried this??
