    Hello , i was just wondering this to myself so i thought i would ask you lovely people for your thoughts hehe

    im not having any syns in the week and im saving them for the weekend, so i have them there just in case as weekends are hard for me, i still plan on sticking to the plan 100% and i may not even use all the syns or not even close, my weigh in is on monday, do you think this will effect my weight loss doing it this way as i dont miss the syns in the week? Thanks x

    When saving Syns it's best to use them as far away from WI as possible but I would say try it and see what happens

    I can't honestly answer as I tend to use mine on a daily basis and not save them all for the weekend

    Sorry !!

    I don't tend to use many syns during the week. I sometimes use some at the weekend, say 20 or 25, for a meal out and drinks, I just don't go mad.

    Having said that, and the reason I said to try it and see, it could be that Tuesday-Friday your weight could drop by a lot and the Syns at the weekend may just bring it up to a sensible loss if that makes sense. I do it the other way around and use all my Syns in the few days after WI then go Syn free for the rest of the week so it acts as a kick start

    I don;t tend to use many syns (if any) during the week but then relax a little over the weekend (wine...!!)

    I find that when I use Syns for alcohol (although I haven't touched any for 4 months!) the gain doesn't seem to show

    When I tried to cut my syns right down....and I mean very low to 5 and under, my weight loss almost stopped. When I spoke to my SW consultant she said that I was trying to hard and that my body was hoarding the fat cos I wasn't eating any. I loosened up and used all my syns and the weight fell off me....go figure :confused: I save my syns the day before if i'm planning something special but other than that I use my syns everyday.

    I was thinking of completely cutting syns out for a week to see if it would help but I don't think it will really after both your expereinces...

    No don't do it! I think Jess has just proved to us that Syns are a must!

    Yes it works, I was floundering for a long while then I got it back on track and use my progressive Syn method and I haven't gained for the last 4 weeks (which is a bit of a record for me of late!). This week, for instance, I had my martial arts gradings and I always gain weight after them so this week I wanted to try damage limitation but that didn't go so well as I had the munchies really bad on Sunday. However, I STS this morning! So yes, it is working well for me!
