Does anybody know a simple equation to work out how many Syns are in foods when you are in a supermarket?

When i did WW i had a link to a calculator to work out the points which was really handy however on SW i'm not aware of anything which can make it difficult when you're in a supermarket and you dont know how many syns something is and I dont really want to have to carry a big chunky directory around with me

If anyone can help it would help to add some spur of the moment food buys when i'm out shopping!

If there is free food in it then No! But if it's for things like sweets, chocolate, snacks etc it's usually 1 Syn per 20 kcal

Unless you have net access on your phone and can do Syn enquiries on the move.

Yeah I do however getting onto the internet and onto the sliming world website when you're in a supermarket can be really slow

Thanks anyway!

Good point! I think SW should do a portable Syn calculator, it would be so much easier
