Wondering if you can help. My new partner is with slimming world but I'm not sure if he kids himself......I've been lucky enough not to have to watch what I eat so it's all new to me but when I see him tucking into a full English (after a night of 3 pints and 4 gin and tonics) followed by a full roast and trifle I find it hard to believe he's still within his quota of 'syns'.......he's just off to the pub now for a couple of pints and I'm biting my tongue....any advise??

I think he's having you on. Men do get a pretty large allocation of syns and a full English is actually not that problematic as long as you cut all fat off bacon, grill it, avoid sausages. Dh has lost three stone since last autumn and he often has a brunch on Saturday with lean bacon, scrambled egg, mushrooms and beans.roast dinner can also be fine as long as you take it easy on the yorkshires, cut fat off meat etc. Cants see how trifle can work at all and you need to count syns in any alcohol so no, I reckon he's well over.

Thank you for the response- no there were sausages and a fried egg, don't think yourshire but def gravy they were all cooked in restaurants.

Would really appreciate any feedback from a person running a Slimming World course 🙏

Is he losing weight? If so then great, if not then he's having you on or just totally ignoring the plan!

Sausages are very high fat. You have to watch gravy too.
