Did you know that men get more syns?

The standard advice given to all new Slimming World members is that, on top of your free and speed foods, you get 5-15 syns a day to use on whatever you want.

It’s right there on page 3 of the book:

5-15 syns a day

But did you know that men are allowed more syns? It’s not in the book, but it was something told to me by my consultant. And if you’re a heavy bloke like me, you get even more syns!

Weigh up to 16 stones5-20 Syns a day
Weigh between 16 and 20 stones5-25 Syns a day
Weigh over 20 stones5-30 Syns a day

At the moment I’m in the “over 20 stones” category and the extra 15 Syns a day is enough to indulge in a couple of cans of beer or even a full-sized Dairy Milk McFlurry!

Of course, there’s nothing to say that guys have to use all those extra syns. I’m allowed 30 a day, but I prefer to stick to around 20 Syns a day. However it’s nice to know there’s a bit of wiggle room available.

Sorry ladies!

    Yeah! Great innit 🙂 Amstel beer is very low in syns so cramming a few of those in as we speak!

      Is that the Amstel Light Pale Ale? I see that has 95 calories per bottle, or 5 syns. I’ve been drinking Coors Light which is 100 calories per bottle, but it’s a little tasteless. Maybe I should try the Amstel instead!
