    hello could anyone help me ... i have just gone back to slimming world ... have all my old books but cant at the moment afford to go to meetings... so my lovley SW i phone app that was great for working out syns is now not working as i dont have membership.
    I have seen a chart online on someones blog about the 20 cal 1 syn rule ??? breaking down calorie brackets to syn values .. ie 5 cal to 14 cal =1/2 syn ... 25 cal - 34 cal = 1+1/2 syns .... does this work out ?
    I know it becomes complicated if the product contains a free food... but i want to be able to work out crisps, salad dressings, treats etc so i just need help with that really
    thank you
