    Hi Everyone.

    I am in a nosey mood today so thought that I would ask everyone what they spend their syns on. I spend mine on sauces like Blue Dragon. I also use them on butter for jacket spuds, Bowyers sausages, mayo, bbq sauce.

    But.....I never spend them on things like chocolate or crisps. I would feel like I was cheating (I know that I wouldnt be) but I just can't get my head around it, if that makes sense?

    I would love to hear your favorite "syn spends"!

    Pretty much the same as you - sauces and if make a curry at home maybe a naan bread, prawn crackers if making chinese etc etc.

    I do use sumtimes on choc and biccies, even crisps but not often really... I feel well naughty if have biccies (just had 2 custard creams) ooooooops!

    meringue nest every night in my fruit salad (3 syns) and usually chocolate of some sort - at the moment I'm addicted to M&Ms so I buy a big bag and then weigh out my nightly portion depending on how many syns I've got and munch on them whilst watching telly. I suck on them and they last ages. Or I sometimes have some microwave popcorn.

    I use mine on sauces, wine, low syn snacks like Snack a Jacks jumbo caramel. Havent yet used it on chocolate but might if I fancy it. That would prob be a 2 finger kitkat or something. Never use it on crisps, for me thats a waste of syns.

    I tend to struggle to eat my Syns, think I'm scared to use them. Then again, if go out on a weekend the it all goes on alcohol, its just gotta be done lol. Plus on weigh in day I tend to eat what I want so I suppose it mght balance itself out that way

    I mostly eat the things I still consider to be normal - crisps, chocolate etc but I make sure that I count the syn values coz I get so cross with myself if I unintentionally go over my allowance. One thing I have found though is that since I have been food optimising I notice the additives in crisps etc, I notice my cravings coming on - from sweet to savoury then back to sweet... that is the main drawback to eating sweets and crisps etc.
