November 2018 Slimming World Updates

Following recent updates to the Slimming World plan, including the news that slimmers now need to syn their flavoured yoghurts and instant mash, we all thought that the mass panic and hysteria may be over for a little but, that's not the case.

Slimming World November 2018 Syn changes and updates.

These changes may not cause as much outcry as our beloved Muller Lights no longer being syn free, but they are also pretty big. I've included some of the main changes below. The most exciting prospect for me is being able to eat more cheese in a day! That's right, the idea of  2 HEA in a day has been added, to ensure that we're getting enough calcium!

Slimming World Syn Updates November 2018

You can now enjoy an additional Healthy Extra ‘a’ choice every Extra Easy day – for even more calcium and even more choice!

A handful of Free Foods have lost their P symbols including: 

baked beans
broad beans
mung beans
all varieties of peas (except split peas)

A few Healthy Extra ‘a’ choices have changed

Healthy Extras

You can now have 2  Healthy Extra A choices and one Healthy Extra B choice!!

A Healthy Extra portion of whole cow’s milk has increased to 200ml

The Healthy Extra portions of rice and almond milk have both decreased to 400ml

40g Paneer cheese is now a Healthy Extra ‘a’ choice!

Some products are no longer Healthy Extras:

Kelloggs Special K Milk Chocolate Delight Bar

Sweetened dairy-free milk

Reduce fat/light soft cheese (including Philadelphia Light)
Soft goat’s cheese

And on an Extra Easy SP day, enjoy at least half a plate of Speed food, and the rest Protein-rich food as usual

SP Syns

You can now have a maximum of 10 Syns on an Easy Extra SP day. 

What Slimming World have to say about the new syn updates:

'Our Nutrition team here at Slimming World regularly review the latest scientific and nutrition research, food trends and product information to make sure our generous Food Optimising stays bang up-to-date and in line with current guidance so that you can achieve the very best weight loss results in the very healthiest way.

To help you achieve your dream in 2019, you’ll receive a special limited edition New Member Pack for free when you go along to group during Christmas week or New Year week. And, in it, you might spot a few changes to Food Optimising.

This is in addition to the changes we let you know about earlier in the year, that fat-free flavoured yogurts canned pasta in tomato sauce and instant mashed potato now have a small Syn value, and that some vegan-friendly products including canned jackfruit and plain/smoked seitan are now Free Food. If you’ve spotted that one of your favourites is no longer a Healthy Extra, you’ll get plenty of ideas in group for Free Food and Healthy Extra alternatives. And if you’d love to adopt some of those changes from today – feel free!'
