We all need a pick me up now and then and energy drinks can help, but since these drinks are flavoured with sugars and additives they do have syns which need to be tracked on the slimming world plan.
Lucozade original has 6.5 syns in for the bottle making it pretty high in syns if you have two bottles it could cost you 13 syns which is nearly the whole of your daily syn allowance.
Below we've made a small guide which will go over how many syns all the range of Lucozade have plus a few low syn alternative energy drinks to have on the plan.
Having Lucozade original now and then on the slimming world is fine as long as you save enough syns for the drink, at 6.5 syns a bottle they would end up consuming around half of your daily syn allowance.
We would suggest only having energy drinks in moderation on the SW plan as they tend to be very high in sugar and calories, it might be best to opt for an energising snack such as nuts instead of a coffee.
There is a huge range of Lucozade energy drinks on the market to choose from with different syn values, we've listed them below to help keep you on track.
If you find Lucozade to be too high in syns there are plenty of other low syn energy drinks you could try having too, we've listed a few below to check out.
Overall, at 6.5 syns for the bottle, Lucozade original is pretty high in syns, so we would recommend drinking them in moderation only when you have room in your syn allowance, energy drinks, in general, are not very low in syns so it's important to be aware of the sugars and flavourings inside of them.
