Thousands of dieters across the country swear by the Slimming World diet.
The flexible plan focuses on Food Optimising, which consists of three steps: free foods, healthy extras and Syns.
To be successful, you should aim to keep your Syns to a minimum. This can prove a bit tricky if you reach for unhealthy snacks on the go.
So which foods can you eat when you’re looking to lose weight?
Here are the top 10 low Syn snacks for Slimming World dieters:
Fat free yoghurt will help you to feel full without all the calories.
These products are packed with probiotics, which regulate the digestive system.

You don’t have to eliminate sweet treats from your diet if you’re following a Slimming World plan.
Many dieters reveal that Jelly Babies are one of their favourite snacks.
At just 1 Syn per sweet, you can eat a few without deviating from your healthy regime.

While icecream tends to be off the cards for dieters, you don’t have to rule out all summer treats.

Cheese isn’t often associated with weight loss, but Babybel natural cheese is probably better for you than you think.
Ranging from 50 to 70 calories, the snack contains six grams of protein and 15% of your calcium needs.
One mini Babybel will cost you 2 Syns.
If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet cravings, jelly is one of your best bets.

You can pop them in a tupperware for lunch or eat them as a part of a healthy breakfast.
