You know how powerful it is when things work together and the result is greater than the sum of their parts? That’s synergy! Free Food, Healthy Extras and Syns work together to create Food Optimising - the most generous, most effective eating plan ever. Then we strengthen your chance of success even further by adding a touch of Body Magic – and to reflect this incredibly powerful synergy, those little bits on the side that make slimming so much easier are named Syns!
Syns are Slimming World's effective alternative to calorie or fat counting, designed to make sure you can enjoy your favourite treats every day, from chocolate and cake to ice cream and alcohol. If a food isn't Free or a Healthy Extra, then it will have a Syn value.
Group members can find a comprehensive list of average, everyday Syns in their Food Optimising books.
Online members can download a PDF document dedicated to Syns here.
