Hi folks. Have any of you had a message from yr sw leader to say that pasta and noodles had been evaluated and sync values changed? Plain pasta and noodles remains free but things like mug shots / packets of pasta not sauce now have syns?
I don't understand how if the recipe is still the same, how they will suddenly start counting towards the daily syns and therefore in theory slow down weight loss, when yesterday they didn't... have they changed the benchmark, or maybe they have their own pasta pot due out which they want to say is better...
My consultant said they had re evaluated how filling they were compared to just normal pasta. Not sure how true that is. But I think if they are encouraging people to do more home cooking, taking some of the processed food off the free list may be a good idea.
There is hardly any processed food on the Free list it's mainly fruit veg meat fish pulses there is some dairy that is processed and some vegetarian products that are. You can choose to add processed foods that have no Syns or low Syns but the basic plan is to eat the bulk of your foods from the Free Food list.
There is a subtle difference between Free Foods (listed in your book) and foods that have no syn value If you focus on the Free Foods in your book it's a healthy eating plan, easy to follow and weight falls off. You can eat foods with no syn value but shouldn't rely on them as syn values can change also they are generally processed food so I am only happy to have them occasionally.
