    Hi everybody. I am brand new to slimming world and I have one little question about syns. My group leader said to have between five and fifteen. I just wanted you opinions on which is the best route to take? Ie is it better start off at the max level and gradually take it down in order to avoid plateaus or to stay mid to low level of sins every day?


    thanks for your help!

    Yep start off with 10-15 a day and see how it goes. There is no reason to limit your syns as even 15 syns a day is only 300 calories a day or 2100 a week - so not enough to add even one pound in weight loss.

    I have problems with syns I force myself to have 5 syns each day (made up of hot chocolates ect) I recently decided i wanted to have more syns because it gives me more room to tweak them should my weight loss slow down, the last two days i have made myself have 11 syns

    They are 1 syn per jaffa cake and you get 6 in a pot. So they should be 6 syns (unless you get a pot wth 7 in lol!)

    I've decided to have sugar in my tea instead of Jaffa cakes!! hhehehehe

    Divide the calories by 20 for the syn value.
