    Hi, it doesn't look like you've had your healthy extras today.. and you should have between 5-15 syns per day and it looks like you haven't had any there either. You will loose better, and be able to maintain it longer if you have your healthy extras and your syns :)

    It's quite common when people first start that they think if they skip the healthy extras and syns they'll do better but, honestly, you'll do better with them. You need you healthy extras as they make sure you have enough calcium in your diet (those are your healthy extra A choices) and enough fibre and some times good fats (heathy extra B choices) Your syns equate to approximately 300 kcal of food over the day. By missing them out you won't even loose a lb a week.. but having them will make the plan easier to stick to long term.. it's no fun going with out chocolate altogether! :) Good luck for today :D

    Hi there, I just wanted to say hi :)

    I only started last week (am doing Extra Easy) but wanted to let you know that I am having the same problem as you! I have been using my healthy options but struggling to use the syns up. :confused:

    It feels wrong to just eat something 'bad' because you need to esp. if you aren't hungry or craving it. Until today I wasn't hungry at all as was filling up on veg mainly! So I've had a bad day but I have still managed the day just using 1.5 syns so far but I think I am going to have something later as feeling very peckish!

    I guess it'll just take us a while to get our head around it all and that eating lots of the right things isn't bad.

    Good luck with it all x

    I think most of the pasta n sauces are free. However, having them for your main meals you will miss out on HEX and superfree food which some will help speed your weight loss up.

    Try putting them on a plate and having salad with it or pour them over a jacket potato on a green day. Fills you up better and potato is free on a green day.

    Put some mixed veg with it.

    Hi Vixta

    See your getting into the swing of things :D

    I hate being the voice of doom but:

    Nimble is 2 slices for HEB (it used to be three) so if you were counting that 3 slices as your 2 HEBs for the day then you missed out on a slice!

    Options hot choc is 2 syns per sachet (unless it is the cracking hazelnut flavour then for some reason it is 1.5 syns. I get those if at all possible but they're hard to find sometimes :p)

    Don't forget you can have more syns and still loose weight. If you are too strict with yourself you may find it hard to keep up to. if you're struggling to fit them in with everything you are eating then aim for 5 per day. Looks like you've only had 3 today! :)

    Usually when I have the pasta and sauces I nuke one of those bags of steam veg (I usually get the ones with carrot, broccoli and sweetcorn in) while it's cooking then stir that in just before serving. I also crumble in 3 x babybel light (HEA) which goes really gooey and stringy and is lovely. I usually get the chicken and mushroom flavour. :)

    I'd be hungry if I ate what you do - so don't worry about eating too much!

    'B' choices on green days also include fish and meat (unless you are a total veggie, in which case I apologise!), nuts, cheese, as well as bread & cereals!!

    As for syns, they're not just there for 'bad' stuff - you can use them for gravy, sauces on pasta, tomato ketchup with your SW chips later! Or you can 'treat' yourself on chocolate or crisps - it'll keep you on track!!! It says in the book to have between 5 and 15 syns a day - it doesn't say between 0 and 15 syns a day!!!

    Good luck :)

    im not a veggie dont worry, with me i cant take it or leave it tbh it dont bother me lol
    im tryin to get more syns in its just i dont feel i need them so much since i started this diet, i think its cos iv been on such drastic diets in the past my body must be savoring all the food im actually gettin now with my free foods lol
    i will be usin them on gravy like u said tho :) i had a sunday dinner with which consisted of just veg and its wasnt the greatest but i was scared to use the sins lol but now after what everyones said about needing them i will defoo be usin some syns up!
    im really enjoyin this diet, which is a first for me. defo goin to stick this out in my mission to be thin by summer! :) xx
