    If we buy the Tesco 30% less fat does this mean we could have a little more than the healthy extra allowance?

    Ooh didn't know you could get this. Each Hex is equivalent to 6 syns (120 cals) so should be able to have more if its lower fat/ lower cal. Have you tried it, how does it taste?

    i like the 50% less fat tesco grated cheese, it allows me a little bit more cheese with my food without feeling guilty.

    I've always wondered this, I stick to 35g halloumi but I get lighter! I wonder how we find out hmm

    Just looks on syn calculator, 25g liger halloumi is 3.5 syns, so as a HExA is 6 syns we should be allowed 42g :D

    I've been eating the lighter halloumi this week but sticking to 35g. I can't do maths to save my life, so thanks for doing the hard bit lol.

    I've just discovered 30% less fat halloumi and I'm hooked!!! The one I use is 80cals for 30g,so I make it 40 extra cals for another 15g. As hex's seem to be 120 cals,or 6 syns I've been having 45g.

    There are particular low fat cheeses that can't be used as a HEA and feta is one of them unfortunately. You can only have full fat feta as a HEA but the low fat one can be used as a HEB if you are on a green day.

    Halloumi is the same - 35g full fat as a HEA, 45g reduced fat but only as a HEB and only on the green plan

    It's another reason why I love the green plan ;)
