Totally agree with this! I don't feel deprived during the week as I know I can have a bit of a treat at the weekend. If that wasn't an option I don't think I would have stuck to the plan so successfully.I've always used them weekly and it suits me to carry on doing this even if SW no longer recommend it. They don't actually say that you can't do it, just that they don't advise it incase you feel deprived on the days where you have less syns.
I've found that it makes the plan more enjoyable for me to know that I can have more syns at the weekend (not for alcohol by the way).
Funny, my C used to talk about flexisyns all the time but since Xmas shes really started to emphasise that they should only be saved for the weekend on very special occasions.Circes said:Personally I don't do it but if it is the difference between someone staying on plan on going off then I am fine with it. I do think however that you should still have a minimum of 5 syns a day. I suspect SW have changed their tune because people are using all 105 for a binge at the weekend, which is not particularly healthy behaviour.
