syns

Hi Helen,
Not all foods have a syn value - you need to use your book a lot in the first few weeks to see what is free and what is not.
Basically though, if it's a treat type food - crisps, sweets, choc, biscuits, booze etc it will have a syn value equivalent to 20cals per syn. These are pretty much empty calories!
All foods like bread/cereal have a syn value if not used as a Healthy Extra.
Some foods have free food allowances in them but also have syn values, like some ready meals.
Use the SW website or buy a food directory for more syn values but do read your book, it will help!

Even if you don't intend to stick with the classes it would pay you to join. That way you get the books and the chat from your consultant, and the benefit of the first meeting.

The 20 calories = 1 syn only works for things that have no free food in them at all - it won't work for something like a vegeburger, ready meal, etc.

You could sign up for the online version of SW if you can't make classes, but remember that they do have arrangements for people on shifts (like me) that can't always make it if you can possibly find 1 hr each week to go to class!

Big food directory which has syns for just about everything in the shops can either be bought by phoning up SW head office or on eBay (but expensive on there!).

Hope that helps.

I understand from another board that it is no longer possible for non-members to buy books over the telephone. Sw are missing out on an opportunity there if you ask me!

I agree there are a lot of people who dont want to attend the meeting but would buy the merchandise. i dont think the people are going to the meetings just to buy stuff, they wouldnt lose people from meetings just get an extra income from everyone else!! xx

Oops! Sorry, didn't realise things had changed!

Do you know anyone who goes to a local class who could buy one on your behalf if you give them the money?
