Emilie's Starting Xante Diet Diary
Hi everyone. Today I bought my first months supply of Xante from their website. I am very excited to get started with this diet. My friends have been doing it and they have had good results so i thought i would give it a go. I have bought the caramel coffee and orange juice powder as well.
I am currently at 14st 12lbs at 5ft 6in. This is the heaviest I have been since meeting my partner :-( I hate feeling like this all the time but i can't seem to stop eating from stress and tiredness, food is my coping mechanism, as I have my own business and a 4yr old boy, 2yr old girl and a collie puppy. I am hoping that an all in approach will work for me better.
I have 4 stone to lose so I am doing the full solution diet.
If anyone has any tips for me feel free to share. I am hoping you guys can help me keep on track :-)
Nice to meet you all!
Things to remember:
*Take it one day at a time, do not think about how long i am going for*
*Food will not make me feel better, I would rather lose weight*
*Do not let myself think about food, dont even consider cheating*

If you stick with the diet then you can expect some very good results!
Wish you the best of luck.
thanks so much for the advice :-) I hope to be around quite a lot. Sticking to it is always my problem, but not this time!
The most important thing with this diet is if you do have a blip; don't feel that it means your diet is ruined - it's better to acknowledge it and get straight back to diet 100% next day rather than think it's time to give up.
A lot of people find planning in advance time off can help them cope with social outings that involve food. So don't feel that you have to cancel everything because of being on a diet.
The important thing is you keep trying and if you can get to your first weigh in, seeing that loss will help motivate you to keep going :-)
Well today was my day 1 on exante. I had porridge for breakfast, shake for lunch and carbonara for tea.
I did struggle in the afternoon as I was so hungry and needed the energy to look after the kids so I had 2 cream crackers and 2 rich tea biscuits, but that should only be 150 calories and I have walked the dog twice today so I think have burnt that off.
I have only drunk 1 litre of water plus tea and coffee today so I need to drink more in the morning.
I can tell I won't be able to wait a whole week to jump on the scales, it keeps me on track to weigh every few days and see that it is going in the right direction.
I have gone to bed early to stop me from snacking. I am really pleased I made it through day one, roll on when it gets easier!
Hi Emilie with a vlcd it's not so much the added calories that are the issue but that added carbs can stop you getting into/knock you out of ketosis - it's the being in ketosis that makes the diet bearable as it makes you feel better and makes it so you don't feel hungry.
If you do feel like you have to have a little bit extra then have a bit of protein instead, it'll make all the difference - good luck for day 2
thanks katie, I didnt realise it was the carbs i needed to avoid specifically. i am hoping to go without snacks now as the first day is always the hardest. fingers crossed for day 2.

When I am struggling with it and need some extra calories I sometimes have a bit of cheese or meat, or even an extra pack. Because sometimes, especially at first or on restart weeks you just need a few extra calories. Good luck though hope today is going well!
Hope day two is going well for you
Today i have had apple and cinnamon porridge for breakfast, strawberry shake for lunch and chilli for tea. i had a few pinches of cheese this afternoon as that is when i struggle most. I have probably not drunk enough water today either, i need to get better at that. very pleased i have made it through day 2 :-)
Well done on getting to the end of day 2 Emilie. You will find that drinking fluids will help you stay on track & also help reduce any headache you may get while going into ketosis.
I often have flavoured beanie coffee or coke zero for a change & some people use the vanilla shake as whitener in their tea/coffee.
Hope tomorrow goes just as well for you xx
Well done that's a good day 2 - hope tomorrow is a good day for you, hopefully you'll be in ketosis tomorrow or the next day and you'll feel so much better then x
I weighed myself this morning and i am 14st 9lbs, so i have lost 3.5lbs since friday, but most of it in the last 2 days! I am very happy this morning now, it feels worth it now. I am starting to feel a bit better and not struggle quite so much but yes hoping it gets easier in the next day or 2. will check in later with how i have done today. going to keep busy and start packing boxes as we are moving house in 2 weeks.
Well done on your start I'm on day 3 and just doing one day at a time
thanks, how are you finding it Lilly?
