If you’re on a Slimming World healthy eating plan, you’ll be used to the terminology and acronyms by now. You may also be aware of some of the differences between Slimming World and Weight Watchers as well as where the two sometimes intersect.
When it comes to food, there are many ingredients and food types that are recommended on both Slimming World and Weight Watchers programmes. When it comes to wraps, can you use Weight Watchers brand wraps even if you’re doing Slimming World?
The answer of course, is yes! Anything you eat can be worked out in terms of syns.
Weight Watchers wraps come in at a neat 6 syns per wrap, which is a slight increase on a couple of years ago when they were just 5.5 syns each.
6 syns for one wrap might seem quite high, especially if your daily syn allowance is 15 (for women) or 25 (for men), neither of which seem like huge numbers. You might think that using 6 syns for one wrap is counterintuitive for your weight loss journey.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that you won’t be eating wraps every day and they are a wonderful, easy, and tasty comfort food that’s easy to prepare when life stresses get in the way!
Wraps can also be great for breakfast time, as a lunch option, or even in dinner recipes.
Wraps are so versatile – they can be filled, rolled, topped, chopped – you name it! Whether you’re looking to curb your food cravings or are planning a cheap and friendly lunch, wraps make a delicious choice.
Some wrap recipe ideas:
If you suffer from food sensitivities, allergies, or intolerances, it’s nice to know that a wrap can still be the perfect choice because there are many different types of wrap on the market!
Whether you go in for the Weight Watchers Plain Flour Wraps or need something a little extra, you’ll surely be able to find the ideal fit for your diet. Some common wrap types include:
As far as Slimming World goes, you will need to double check whatever option you choose to ensure the syn value is still appropriate for your daily intake.
If you decide that you can’t justify using 6 of your daily syns for one wrap, then you’ll be happy to know that Weight Watchers wraps can count towards your daily HEXB (Healthy Extra B) allowance!
This might vary when it comes to other types and brands of wraps, but having the WW ones as a HEXB back-up option is a great strategy.
If you aren’t a fan of bread and cereals, then wraps could be your new favourite choice for Healthy Extra B options.
Even if you’re on a Slimming World plan, you can still eat Weight Watchers wraps and it is possible to make them fit seamlessly into your daily syn allowance.
As with most things related to health and fitness, planning is really important, and that’s really all it takes when it comes to adding wraps to your diet. They may not be the lowest-syn carbs out there, but they’re delicious and versatile so they’re worth sacrificing a few extra syns for.
As mentioned above, it is also possible to use wraps as part of your HEXB allowance so keep that in mind if you’re struggling to add up your daily syns.
