From Heavy Weight to FeatherWeight!
I figured it was now time after a week and a half of being on Exante to start a diary! The diary is firstly to keep me accountable, and secondly because I want jabber about the diet, but really don't want to bore people who have never heard of Exante :)
My experience so far has been mixed. I have been 100% so far, and haven't been overly tempted to eat real food which I am really happy about - it seems like everyone is eating my favourte things at the minute. I lost 10lbs first week which was great, and felt pretty great. Also I love the vanilla, chocolate mint, and Toffee caramel shakes :D. I love to read about you all, your great progress and I can only hope to do as well.
According to Ketone Sticks haven't got very far into Ketosis. I previously did Slim and Save and went to the high end of Ketosis easily - maybe it is because there is more carbs in Exante? My main worry is - because I am naughty and weigh frequently - is I have barely moved this week (as in it is the 6th day of week two and I have lost 2lbs :sigh:). I am going to make a conscious effort to increase my water (I have been having 3 liters or more a day) as maybe I need a bit extra? Also incase of water retention issues I have started my green tea tablets again.
I would love to know much water everyone else feels is optimum for this diet! Also is there any specific combination of the packs (eg porridge and shakes etc) which you feel increases your losses?
Also exercise, I have being doing some long walks with my OH, and I am going to do Kettlebells. Has anyone found something that they love?
I love this forum and the advice and inspiration you can find :)
Sorry for the essay of a first post. I will try and update frequently - although not post as much as this!
