Like I use engevita with b12 for free I'm sure I'm supposed too syn it but I don't understand why marmite yeast extract is free in my mind so should the yeast flakes. What do you people do that is maybe not too the rules?

I've heard that some people don't syn avocado, because the health benefits outweigh the syns. If I'm poorly, I don't syn medicines, I just think that's silly

Yes I totally understand That plus being as its full of good fats should keep you fuller for longer too. I love avocado mmmmm. I've tried weight watchers before and they don't point blended or cooked fruit the actual item say apple 🍎 is free no matter how you have it but you have too point non free things. I wish slimming world did the same

I think cooking fruit should be free as long as you don't add sugar. It's still filling and healthy.

I take loads of medication for chronic illness but don't syn them as they're a part of my life that's necessary.
