    I am going out for tea this afternoon. It's just not going to be possible to work out the syns. I know I'll be over 15. I want to have a flexi syn day but I have no idea how to work it all out!

    Any hints/tips please?

    Flexi syn days are where you pick a number of syns you will go up to, eg 60, and stop eating syns once you have reached this number. You then go back to eating normally the next day, without putting your body under the strain of starvation. Some people mistake flexi syns for when you have more of your weekly allowance one day, and then cut back the rest of the week. If it isn't possible to work out the syns of your meal, it will be hard to flexi-syn.

    Hope this helps

    You need to take a look at the menu and guesstimate the syn values for whatever you plan to eat/drink.

    If you have a look in your book-it gives a rough guide on some common types of places to eat. Try and think of ways to cut the syns down-eg Chicken ceaser salad-ask for everything on the side and say no to crutons. That way you are in control of dressing and cheese.

    I rarely go out to eat without having looked at the menu beforehand, just so I have some sort of idea.

    Do you know where you're going out to eat...if so, google the menu and put the link on here and we can help you choose :)

    I'm just going to my grandma's house for her birthday. I know there'll be mini bagels and cupcakes, probably some biscuits too. I'm having something to eat before I go and I'll try to be sensible. :)
