But now bosses at Slimming World have revealed something to make those using the plan shudder.

Some of the most popular ‘free’ foods – which don’t need to be counted as part of the diet – now have to be included in the syns tally.

Under the diet plan, members have been able to freely enjoy a host of pasta and noodle meals and snacks.

And for many Mug Shots and Batchelors Pasta ‘n’ Sauce have been the go-to choice when feeling peckish.

Slimming World fans will now have to count the syns

But now Slimming World experts have said people need to ‘syn’ the meals – along with other similar ones – as the amount of pasta and noodles in them is too low to fill you.

In a post on its website it says: “The team at our Head Office who look after our food databases are always busy making sure that the guidance you get gives you the very best chance of slimming success.

“Knowing how much the pasta and noodle ‘landscape’ has changed over recent years, they’ve taken a closer look at how they evaluate the different types of pasta and noodles in snack pots and sachets.

“These extra checks have highlighted that these products are not as bulky, filling or satisfying as we thought (in fact the amount of pasta and noodles in some of them is really very low).

“And as a result some that were previously Free now have a small Syn value ranging from ½ Syn to 3 Syns.

Mug Shots are one of the favourite snacks that people will now have to count

“Plain dried pasta and noodles are still free.”

Followers of the plan can eat as much as they want of most ‘filling’ foods such as fresh meat, fish, eggs, fruit and vegetables plus dried pasta, rice and noodles, reports Gazette Live .

But they need to count as ‘syns’ sugary and fatty foods as well as those the plan dieticians feel do not do a good job of filling you up.

Members have around 15 syns a day to use on these which include extras like tomato ketchup, mayonnaise and sugar.

Under the new rules the Mug Shots range from one syn to up to 5.5 for the Mug Shots Sensations Mac & Cheese while the Batchelors Pasta ‘n’ Sauce ranges from a half to six for the Tuscan Sausage variety.

One Hartlepool member said on Facebook: “Gutted. My Mug Shots that I like so much aren’t free syns on Slimming World anymore.”

Another added: “I don’t get it. How can a food be syn free then suddenly have a syn value? Surely it would have had an effect on weight loss all along?”
