    I remember seeing a reply to a thread which said you can knock Syns off an item if you use it as a HEX.

    I had a finger rolll today and believe its 6.5 Syns, can I use this as my HexB??

    I think if it was wholemeal then yes you can. If it was white or malted etc then i think you count the full syn value as it wont contain the required daily amount of fibre :)

    I think that's only if a HEXb is included in what you're having. For example if you bought a shop bought sandwich made with wholemaeal bread, you could knock off 6 syns and use bread as |HEXb

    Normally it's reducing the total syns of a product. For example if you bought a chicken salad on a green day and the book/online said 7 you can summise that 6 of the 7 syns are for the chicken (or the first 113g of chicken) so you could say the salad was 1syn and 1 HExB

    You can't just take 6 syns off something and say it's a HEx, otherwise I'd used all four of my HEx's on Ben and Jerry's!!

    I wasnt planning on reducing random Syn values, it was only because it was bread that I wondered. I knew someone had mentioned that you could do it with shop bought sandwiches last week

    Sorry if that sounded patronising, I didn't mean it to! With bread it is 6 syns from wholemeal bread/rolls. Unfortunately white bread doesn't have enough fibre to qualify as a HExB, which in my opinion just sucks.

    heh I don't either, specially since a nice 100ml scoop of that cherry garcia froyo is only 8 syns. MMMMMM 2 syn ice cream, YEEERRS!

    My BF pointed out to me the other day that there was only 600 calories in the whole tub. I had 2 large spoonfuls as a treat cos I hadn't used any syns that day and he was goading me. I was strong though. He scoffed the lot and had a dicky tummy later, serve him right for making yummy you-can't-have-it noises.
