Would you lose much more if didnt use syns?

Or would that be too risky / Unsustainable !
Also why is it 5 - 15 rather than just “up to 15”?

In my mind the wording is 5-15 because it’s encouraging you to use some, because they’re acknowledging that no ‘goodies’ is unsustainable.

They encourage you to have at least 5 syns. My friend uses hers in cooking.
I need to have at least 10 syns daily to lose. Weeks where I have had very few have resulted in maintains or gains. I have no idea why and it irritates me. So I use them to balance out the plan.

A SW Consultant of mine used to tell us that we should have at least 5 syns a day to boost our metabolism.
Chocolate or whatever goes in and the body thinks " got to work a bit harder now".
But the current plan says something along the lines of not worrying about using your syns if you feel full with free food and healthy extras.

I am trying to clean up my act so don’t want to have sugar (wine/choc) as my syn treats as I am 100% addicted - I just end up craving and obsessing and this is where it all goes wrong. I want to be sugar free for when I am done at target - and learn to “treat” myself with nutritious healthy oils / nuts syns.
That’s the theory anyway.....

I use Syns for things like olive oil avocado extra bread cheese and pine nuts in salads Jack Daniels and wotsits
