    How many syns a day would you use on treats like biscuits, chocolate, crisps, alcohol etc? And how many syns do you use in a day?

    I try to use 8-12. If i go right up to 15 then so be it, i'm not going to beat myself with a big stick for it :whoopass:

    I'll normally have a bit of chocolate a day. If I haven't used any syns by tea time I'll have something relatively high in syns like a creme egg (8.5syns). If I've used some syns on mayo, coleslaw, toast, cheese etc then I'll have either a curly wurly (6) or a kit kat (5.5) ... something a bit lower.

    Other things I syn are;

    Sauces
    crisps
    ryvita minis
    laughing cow triangles
    Choc weetabix
    Options hot choc

    I'm not very adventurous!:eek:

    I use between 10-12 syns everyday. I use all of them on "Junk", I don't need Mayo or extra cheese and I refuse to use syns in my meals... so I use all of them on treats- mostly chcoolate or cake or extra cereal bars/biscuity things.... :)

    I'm like Shrimpy. I use 10-15 per day (mostly closer to 15 than 10) and almost all on chocolate, crisps or cereal bars.

    I use around 10 per day, I tend to use them on treats, especially puddings. But dont mind a bag of velvet crunch or a hot chocolate before bed!

    I aim for 10 a day (70 a week).

    What I spend them on depends on my mood. When I am being angelic they go on:

    Brazil nuts
    Walnuts
    Olive oil
    Red Wine
    70%+ dark organic chocolate

    More normally on:

    mini milks
    rivitas
    crisps
    salad cream/tom sauce/brown sauce
    small chocolate bars
    white wine

    Thanks for the replies, yesterday I used mine on a small bag of walkers and a 2 finger kit kat and was feeling very bad about it. I generally use 12-15 per day and my weight loss is slow so I was wondering was this why was I using too many syns on chocolate!!

    I don't think your weight loss is slow. WIth the exception of 1 week you have lost every week, averaging out over the 7 weeks at 1.5lb a week. That is healthy and sustainable weight loss :) Don't be too hard on yourself and enjoy your treats!!

    I use mine on Velvet Crunch crisps (4 syns), something chocolate-y - freddo / curly wurly etc and if I have a HEA a hot chocolate before bed :) also for sauces / gravy as I can't stand dry food!! xx

    Mostly chocolate and booze! I do use them for meals occasionally for things like honey, tomato puree, wine, pesto, stir fry sauce etc. I try not to go above 70 syns a week but that's because I'm getting closer to goal now and it's harder to loose weight!

    I normally use aroubd 6 on savory things like pesto, mayo, sausages, bread etc then 4 or 5 on sweet things like a mini icre cream (aldi do lovely mini solero type things and i think theyre 3.5ish) or chocolate, best of both worlds!

    I agree with one of the previous posters. Your weight loss hasn't been slow at all. In fact, I think your weight loss has been great. It's coming off at a really good rate. You should be very proud.
