    I also tend to use my syns in the same way to make my meals more interesting. I do though have a hot chocolate in the evening which helps with any sweet cravings I have. I know there not the real thing but they are only 2 syns and sometimes I add low fat sqirty cream. It helps me anyway.:)

    I have a bit of everything with mine - sauce, extra cheese, salted nuts, extra bread, biscuits, chocolate (although it's not my downfall so I can usually have a bit without going mad)

    I eat very little chocolate these days, as I prefer to use my syns for a glass of wine plus little things, like a tsp of low fat spread on crispbread, a couple of walnuts on top of my salad or olive oil in salad dressing.

    I use mine for gravy, mayo, crisps and chocolate Hun and I still loose weight.
    As long as you are in the syn range, you will still loose weight.

    Yes - there's no need to worry. 6 syns is 6 syns whether it's 6 syns spent on butter or 6 syns spent on chocolate. And if you're craving it then it's better to use some of your allowance to have it on a regular basis rather than going completely off the wagon because you feel completely deprived.
