    What "proper" food do you miss? Have you found a SW alternative?

    I miss pizza, normally substitute it for a tortilla wrap one but it's just not the same! It doesn't hold the weight of much!

    The calendar had a recipe for one with a proper base so might give that a shot!

    Can't say I really miss anything as there are always alternatives, but here are a few I have thought about (briefly!) whilst on SW.....

    Big pizzas from the Asda pizza counter - the Smash pizza satisfies that craving though.
    Cheese - not craving it cos have Laughing Cow triangles, but I used to have cheese quite often so do miss it a bit. I know I can have some as HEXA/syns, but once I start I'll probably not stop!
    Stodgy bread - garlic bread, baguettes, paninis, naan bread & Subway (footlongs!)
    Takeaways - Chinese and Indian mostly - nowadays I don't just order whatever, I choose from the menu by what has the lowest syns.

    But I just keep reminding myself that nothing tastes as good as being slim feels! :cool:

    Hmm, this is a tricky one - I don't really deny myself anything and didn't whilst I was losing weight but I have the "naughty" things fewer and further between than I used to.

    For me, it's crisps and dips, cheese and crackers, an indian with ALL the trimmings (naan bread, bhajis, etc) big cheese sandwiches.

    I just find other things now or don't have as much - i'll have 3 crackers and a bit of cheese or make my own dips etc.

    The great things with SW is you can have most things, find alternatives or just have a flexi syn day!!!

    Bombay mix or anything savoury and nutty.

    Everything else I miss I allow myself in small doses and syn it, but I can't have these bad boys in the house because they would drive me mental until I gobbled them ALL up
