What are Slimming World Syns? How Many Can I Have?
So basically Slimming World have the three plans below and depending on which plan you follow you will have a list of SYN FREE foods to choose from but there are also foods which are not SYN FREE (basically these are foods which are not part of choices allowed on the 3 basic plans)
- Extra Easy
- Original (RED)
So Slimming World call these types of food & drink “Syns” – you can have them but they are limited – how are they calculated? – well those are the secrets were not allowed to know and they are none of our beeswax either
You can have 5-15 Syns a day (take advice from your consultant on how many you should have per day this is just for informational purposes)
Slimming World have a massive database where they have cataloged and of course update when appropriate a Syn value for nearly every piece of food/drink and fast food meal you can think of – this is why Lifeline online and the mobile apps are so important to have access to, in my first week I must have logged on at least 20-30 times
If you can’t find a Syn value for food or drink don’t make it up or just have it anyway, just ask your consultant, there is also the Food Directory which you can buy through your group which is a big thick book of foods/drinks and their Syn values according to the plan you are following so there is a lot of help with this plan, plus supermarkets have a lot of their own brands of food and drink nowadays and yup you can find those Syn values too.
What do you use your Syns for??
