I much prefer to track my syns weekly, 70 per week, as I find it makes the plan more liveable and it doesn't make me feel deprived at all to only have a couple through the week so I can have a bottle of wine or a big bar of choc on a Friday night. However, I went to my first meeting last night and my consultant said this wasn't recommended (even though she admitted she does the same!). She said when I get close to target I may notice it affecting my weight loss. Not sure how close to target, as I only have 24lbs to lose anyway. Has anyone else found this affects weight loss?
