    Sadly SW don't have an eating out guide in the way WW do. There is some limited info in the books and food directory and some places like Pizza Express and Costa are listed in Syns Online. Mostly though you just have to use your judgement and hope for the best!

    It's impossible to give accurate syn values for restaurants because recipes, ingredients, cooking methods and portion sizes vary so much from place to place. If you look in the eating out section you will find general syn values but these can be way out as, for example, a chinese takeaway serving can be as much as three times the weight quoted.

    There is an app on the iTunes store called Fast Food which lists calories and nutrition info for big restaurants like McDonalds. Having said that McDonalds actually have their own app which is good for working out syns.
    As has been said, it varies fro place to place, so use good judgement in this instance :)
