    Hi,
    I fell off the SW wagon awhile ago but now i'm back on :D

    I've been using my syns for snacks.
    I tend to have a packet of quavers for lunch (5 1/2 syns)
    and I have a kit kat in the evening (5 1/2 syns)
    This only totals 11 syns so I'm within my limit.
    Everything else I eat is either free or one of my HEX.

    Should I be using my syns in this way?
    Will eating choc & crisps affect my weight loss?

    at this moment i am sucking on a curly wurly (5 syns) kept in the fridge so it lasts longer. if i want a packet of crisps i get quavers.
    I dont tend to use syns for 'normal' food, as these are for treats, anchor spread, extra light mayo, choccie etc.
    If i didnt i would just cheat and i find its the best way for me.
    last time i did slimming world i did it this way and lost 2 stone in just over 3 months, but then we had a house fire were we lost everything so i come off it as i couldnt face it.
    I will be doing the same this time, it all depends on the person, but your within your syns, and thats what there there for

    Thanks for that.
    I also had a hot choc worth 2 syns tonight.

    With other diets I've done i've always fallen off the wagon cos i couldn't have any chocolate. so just by having a kit kat or penguin bar really helps me.

    Yeah I use syns for chocolate quite often. I am the same, it's the one food I can't go without so I have to allow myself to. If not chocolate I sometimes have butter, mayonnaise, little cakes such as Mr Kipling lemon slices and chocolate mousses. Most of the time I would prefer to pay the syns required for the full fat, full sugar versions than scrimp on the syns for the lower fat, lower sugar versions as I believe in a little of what you really want.
