Hello fellow Exante dieters
My names Will, 26 years old from Northamptonshire. A bit of history on me - I have previously done lighter life and successfully lost 4 stone in just over 2 months, I maintained for 2 years but due to various events in my life, this last 2 years has seen me royally abusing myself in terms of unhealthy food and alcohol! Time went on and I got sick of not fitting into my clothes and I was becoming increasing embarrassed at how big my beer belly was getting.
This leads me on to now! I found exante on Facebook when researching other vlcd as I could not afford to do lighter life and REALLY didn't want to take part in the counselling sessions. I know these diets are difficult but they show fast results and I need fast results as I soon become impatient.
My plan is to lose 5 stone and not put it on again. I plan to do this by introducing exercise and not eating or drinking how i did! The main upside to these diets are that we all lose weight quickly with no exercise (if we choose). I find that this can also be a downside afterwards though as many people go back to old ways and it all goes back on within a year or two.
So I am on day 7 of total solution, I am having a shake in the morning, a bar at lunch and a soup in the evening. I am already struggling with the soups, I find them very grim so will probably resort to 2 shakes a day. Just have to think of a way to get rid of these soups!
I am a daily weigher I'm afraid and so far 6 days done = 8lbs down. I have the dirty ketosis taste in my mouth, I still get occasional pangs of hunger but gulp these away with water. I have the odd can of coke zero as a treat but I mainly stick to water.
