If you are looking to make hot dogs for a cheat meal on the weekend or maybe as a snack, you might be wondering how many syns these sausages have and if they are high in syns?

Can I Eat Hot Dogs On The Slimming World?

Hot dogs have on average around 3 syns for a frankfurter, making them low in syns, however once paired with bread and other toppings, you could be looking at 15 syns and above for a hot dog.

In our syn guide below, we will discuss how many hot dogs you can have on the slimming world, syn values, low syn alternatives and an SW recipe for making your own hot dog at home!

How Many Hot Dogs Can I Eat On Slimming World?

At 3 syns for a hot dog out of the brine, you could have up to 5 hot dogs before using up all of your daily syn allowance for the day, making them a great low syn snack or meal.

You should however consider the bread, sauces and over-add-ins with your hot dog which can add calories to your meal, making a hot dog well over 15 syns. To save syns we would suggest using a wholemeal roll with your hot dog as a healthy extra B and being mindful of the sauces which can add extra syns.

Last Words

Overall, hot dogs alone are quite low in syns, having just 3 syns each, meaning you could have up to 5 hot dogs before using up all your daily syn allowance. You should consider additional syns in a hot dog once paired with bread and sauces since this can take it to above 15 syns.

In order to save syns with a hot dog, we suggest using a wholemeal roll as your healthy extra B and going easy on the sauces which can add a lot of additional syns if you are not careful.
