22 Low Syn Foods You’ll Only Know If You’re On The Slimming World Plan

1. Frozen fruit

Random bits of frozen banana stashed in the freezer drawer. That, and failed yogurt-coated berries. Turns out you don’t have time to make your own Slimming World free foods, but berries will do nicely anyway!

2. High Fi bars

You can only buy these from ‘group’ (Healthy Extra B choice). But they’re just so small and delicious that you need to cram a few in while you can.

3. Frylight

If it’s on offer, you’ll buy in bulk! You need this in your Slimming World life for crispy coatings.

4. Quark

Strangely tasteless, but really creamy – the perfect ingredient to stir into… well let’s face it, you’ll give it a whirl in almost anything!

5. Primula light cheese spread tubes

You can half a tube for a Healthy Extra A! It’s kinda wrong, but kinda good in mac’n’cheese… You know what we’re talking about.

6. Diet coke

The holy grail of Syn free drinks – you’ll even be cooking with it, believe us.

7. Bacon medallions

It’s a crime to cut on the tasty fat, so these beauties are Syn free and hassle free. Who else but a Slimming World shopper would choose no fat bacon?!

8. Yogurt, yogurt, yogurt

Meet your new best friend. You never can have enough fat-free yogurt in the fridge thanks to its Slimming World free food status.


The world’s supply of potatoes, pasta and rice just shrunk with the next slimmer joining Slimming World! How can this be called a diet when so many delicious things are on offer? We’ll never look back.

10. Fat free cottage cheese

This beauty will rescue anything from salad, to crudités, to jacket potatoes… one tub is not enough to last a week now you’re on plan.

11. Mug Shot soup packs

They’re 0 Syns, so get them in the trolley! So many varieties, so little time…

12. Hello Curly Wurly

We know it’s not grown up, but seriously, for 6 Syns they really take ages to eat! Long lasting, ‘Synful’ pleasure…

13. Silly small loaves of bread

Normal loaves are for other diet groups – at Slimming World, we love two slices of really mini bread.

You’ll dig out the slow cooker, even in summer, and will wax on to all your friends how ah-mazing it is. It’s changed your life! No, really it has.

16. Eggs

You’ll give an egg a go in most meal scenarios… then talk at group how perhaps the weight loss has suffered because you haven’t been to the loo for days!!!

17. Mushy peas

You never felt the need to put them in your trolley before Slimming World, but now you know they don’t count as a Slimming World syn, you fancy them with most meals, or the ones that you don’t include baked beans in that is…

18. Jelly babies

If you thought sweets were off limits, think again. Jelly babies are one of the best Slimming World secrets you’ll discover.
