    Talking Exante WILL help me lose 3 stone

    Hi guys

    I'm not new to the forum, but it's been a while... After reaching my weightloss goal 3 years ago, I left the forum, stopped "dieting" and I have slowly crept back up to my heaviest, despite efforts to follow various healthy eating plans. For me I think I need to go hard, or go home... I've decided it's time for something drastic to kick me up the bum.

    TIME FOR EXANTE

    From what I can understand from my personal research in to VLCDs, Ketosis is the main reason for feeling ok/not hungry and getting rid of cravings for real food. So to ease myself in gently to a stage of little hunger, I plan to allow myself some zero carb food for the first few days (basically following the working solution) just to help get me in to ketosis without depriving my body of real food or depriving of too many calories too soon - slowly, slowly does it, with a view that this will help me stay on track long term. This is a complete trial, and I have no idea if it will work but I am basing it on how I know my body reacts to low carbs any my knowledge of ketosis over the years of dieting.

    THURSDAY DAY ONE - 0 Carb, real food diet day
    My packs don't arrive until tomorrow so I've decided to use today to introduce my body to the way of low carbs. I'll be eating eggs and ham for breakfast. Then chicken salads for the remainder of the day. Any snacks will be 0 carb. I will use my knowledge of south beach, atkins etc to guide me. Hopefully this can be the first day of getting my body in to ketosis as I'm desperate to reach a stage where my energy levels are OK and the time that the hunger subsides as soon as possible. I'm not going to count calories, or deprive my body of food when it says it's hungry. 0 carb is the only rule for today.

    FRIDAY DAY TWO - Working solution
    My packs will arrive!! Woo. So I'm going to start the plan off, but also add in one real food meal. I am working in a pub until 2am so I can't just sleep through the headaches and hunger as I'd like to. I'm hoping allowing myself a small amount of real food that will keep my body happy (I hope) but also won't affect me getting in to ketosis... as long as I stay away from the enemy - carbs. So for today - 3 packs and a meal which I will not count calories, only rule - 0 carb.

    SATURDAY DAY THREE - Working solution
    Again, I will be working a long day in a probably packed pub. So I'm going to follow working solution one more day, allowing myself an omelet for breakfast (0 carb) and continuing the rest of the day on the packs. I will be able to go home at 8pm so I can survive in my bed through the hunger. Today I want the food intake to be a lot less than the previous day - weening in the meal replacements slightly more.

    SUNDAY DAY FOUR - Total solution (Finally)
    Finally a full day off, so I hope to stick to the TS 100%. By now i'd like ketosis to be kicking in, but if not, I can just cry the day away in bed alone. JOY!

    MONDAY DAY FIVE - Total solution
    Again, another day off so a full day on TS, drinking tons of water, nursing any headaches and sleeping through any rumble tum times. That's two full days off so no excuses to cheat. I will lock myself away as I can be a complete ***** when I'm starving!!!

    TUESDAY DAY SIX - Total solution
    I'm hoping my now ketosis will be in full swing (surely) and that I won't feel so hungry, or have any cravings. By this point of the week I will be having to do real work, so I need energy levels and concentration to be back to normal! As well as my pub job, I work in and study fashion design meaning that I need to be creative and proactive. This will be a big test for me to see if ketosis can give me the level of energy I need to perform. In the past, I have found after 3 days of 0 carbs, I am not hungry and full of energy. However, the calorie in take has been much higher than 600. It will be interesting to see if ketosis can really keep my feeling energised even with such a large calorie deficit.

    WEDNESDAY DAY SEVEN - Total solution
    And so begins the normality of living life on a VLCD.

    So there we have the plan. I will update daily to let you know how it works for me.

    Take care everyone, and good luck on your own VLC journeys. xx

    I had last week off work and, like you, decided to do low carb Monday-Thursday while waiting for my packs to arrive to ease myself in. I did well, I was very headachy and grumpy and feeling ready for Exante when my packs arrived on Wednesday afternoon but my best friend was visiting on Thursday so I picked a restaurant where I could get a low carb salad option - all good so far. Then we met up, got chatting, both ordered pizza and then went to a tearoom for lattes and cake.

    I had a shake on Friday followed by a McDonalds and then my fiancť and I ordered Papa Johns on Saturday night. Soooo... successful attempt all round

    Hopefully you do better than me haha! xo

    Hahaha aww bless you, sounds like me the last few weeks. I dunno why I think it'll be different this time but I do. Maybe cause I'm telling more people that this is what I'm doing. Just called my bezzie and suggested organising a spa day next time we meet instead of the usual 3 day booze and food fest most of my friends live far away so when I see them we always end up doing something massive and it always means eating and/or drinking!!! It's so hard to socialise and diet!!! Plus working in a pub, I hate the general public when they're drunk, they drive me to drink xx

    Diary

    DAY ONE - introducing low carb

    So I've done it! Fair enough not a TS day, but day one of the diet is done. Winner!!! I stuck to the low carb 100%, managed to fit in some exercise and actually don't feel too bad at all.

    This is how my day panned out:

    Wake up - after ordering my shakes at midnight last night, I was so excited by the prospect of exante. (Remind me I said that next week) Part of me thought, "why don't I have one last day of glutinous eating as its gonna be a while until I can do that again." But instead, I came on this forum and found all the inspiration I needed to ignore that and make a new plan. It's always one last day isn't it? Well, not today!!! Hello new me.

    Breakfast - I left this really late, not eating until around 3pm.. Part of which because I became addicted researchin exante more and more!!! By 3 I was being a right old witch so I gave in to some food. But a zero carb omelet sorted me out enough and I went and did some errands to take my mind off food. The sun was shining which is always a bonus.

    Lunch - by the time I came home it was 5pm and I was already starving even though I ate like 2 hours before. So I listened to my tum and had a chicken salad. This filled me up completely and I was then able to feel ok enough to do some dressmaking work. I managed to resize and cut out a whole bridesmaids dress. This is a massive achievement, as this kind of creative and detailed work takes a lot of brain power, especially for me... usually I'd just get ratty and give up if I hadn't had any carbs to feed my poor little brain. Half way through I did get a bit hungry so I treated myself to some zero carb "picky bits" That saw me through the rest of the day.

    Work out - by about 11pm I'd finished the dress, but I still felt wide awake... Prob all the caffeine I'd injested to help me through the sewing work. So I decided to go to the gym. I'm lucky enough to have a 24 hour one which is a 30 minute walk from my house. I walked there and back and did 20 mins in the gym burning around 300 calories according MyFitnessPal. I'm hoping I can still do this everyday when I'm fully in to TS as I feel great for it! It also helped take my mind of eating and kept me focused.

    Dinner - so my day all started really late so I didn't bother having dinner, instead, I cleaned my teeth, had a shower and got in to bed. Teeth cleaning is the best turn off for my food relationship

    OH And here I am all tucked up. Achey muscles, empty tummy, but a positive spirit. Excited for my exante pack to arrive tomorrow so I can really start this skinny journey.

    Stats:

    Calories in - 1100
    Exercise burned - 300
    Net - 800 calories

    Total carbs - 24g

    DAY TWO

    Diary

    DAY TWO - Introducing meal replacements

    11am

    The Exante Excitement
    So I woke up really late BUT my packs are here!!! [IMG]file:///C:\Users\Bizzle\AppData\Local\Temp\msohtmlclip1\01 \clip_image001.gif[/IMG] was like a kid at christmas when I saw the parcel waiting for me this morning.

    I ordered the Exante Diet 4 Week Mixed Diet Pack which you can find here- Exante Diet 4 Week Mixed Diet Pack (2015) | exantediet.com

    I will try to update as much as I can to let you know how I find all the packs. For today, I am only having 1 pack and two meals to introduce the diet slowly, and help me along with a few more calories until I hit ketosis.

    1pm

    The Exercise:

    I went to the gym early in the day, before eating anything. My main reason for going was to get an accurate weight reading from the posh scales at the gym. They also give you a BMI reading as well so I'm hoping it will give me a better understanding of how much fat I'm losing week to week. Whilst in the gym I found a lot of interesting posts on the forum regarding exercising on a VLCD and that it's suggested resitance training could be the more beneficial one. This was great news to me as I hate cardio. So I want to do more research in to this and develop a plan that will hopefully tone me up and retain the muscle that I have already. I'm not very muscley, but I am a lot stronger than my skinny female friends.

    The Workout:
    Walk to gym - 25 mins
    Leg Press - 3 x 10 reps (85lbs-115lbs increasing)
    Hip abductors (in) - 3 x 10 reps (70lbs)
    Hip abductors (out) - 3 x 10 reps (85lbs)
    Cross trainer - slow pace, 15 minutes (level 14)
    Walk home - 25 mins

    3pm

    The Breakfast:

    - Lemon And Raspberry Shake
    Out of all the packs, I thought I'd like this flavour the least so I decided to have it first to get it out of the way. It actually wasn't that bad. Quite sharp, but creamy and filling. I made as directed with 200mls of water and some ice. I had half a shake (over about 30 mins, with sips of water in between to make it last longer) and popped the rest in the fridge for later.

    I left this as late as possible as I'm going to be on my feet until 2am.

    Exante WILL help me lose 3 stone-img_5978.jpg

    I put my shake in a little sundae glass with a straw. I hope to always make my meal replacements look appetising to keep me interested, dunno what to do for the rest of the meals yet.

    5pm

    The Mood Swing
    By now I'm feeling like an absolute witch. I tried working in the studio but my flatmates even just breathing was irritating me. Major sign that I'm hungry!!! I feel well in myself, now headaches or anything, but I can tell I'm HANGRY as they call it. I planned to have a 0carb omelette but my housemate had mates over, and I couldn't face making conversation with people I didn't know in this foul mood. So I lock myself in my room for about an hour, researching the diet and somehow get through it. I decide to have a shower and stop being such a baby.

    7pm

    The Treats
    Once I stopped being such a child, I decided I needed to treat myself but didn't wanna opt for a food treat as usual. Instead, I went to pound land and bount myself some new bits for the diet. I got glass sundae dishes, a "posh" glass coffee cup, some cute little dessert bowls for the soups and stuff, and a new measuring jug. As I live in a shared house, there's hardly ever any nice clean crockery to use, so I decided that getting my own little set would make my exante times stress free and a little more luxurious. Poun shop and luxurious don't ofetn go hand in hand but I got quite a nice set for a fiver so I'm cuffed

    The Lunch

    - Chicken, salami, cheese string, scotch egg

    So lunch, if you can call it that when it's so late! Was basically just a load of low carb "picky bits" as I call them. Adding everything to fitnesspal to ensure I stayed well below 50g of carbs for ketosis. I didnt feel full up after that, but I decided to ignore my tummy and realise this is going to be half the battle.

    8pm

    The Pub
    The start of my 7 hour shift at the pub. JOY. Being on low carb, little calories, irritable, miserable and having to deal with a load of drunk people all night. Oh how I love my life The soda water on tap was my saving grace. After a few glasses my hunger went and I realised I was probably just a bit thirsty (even after 2 litres of water earlier in the day)

    10pm

    The Fluffy Brain
    I got a bit of a headache, started to flag a little, feeling tired and unable to concentrate on stuff. I felt like I was walking around in a daze and kept getting peoples orders wrong or forgetting what I was doing. I remedied the head with tablets and more water, that soon shifted. I usually get through the night on redbull, but as thatís a no go, I had an energy tablets to see me through. After the hydration and medication I felt much better and was actually in a good mood most of the night, able to work efficiently and just having a good laugh with my work mates and even the annoying customers!

    2am

    The End (Nearly)
    Finally, the pub is closed. Iíd made it. I hadnít even had dinner yet. And didnít feel hungry. OH MY GAWD. Felling pretty smug at this point that day 2 is over. THEN, as usual, comes the time for staff drinks. Now I had planned to have nothing at all, but as Iíd had such a successful day Ė what harm can one zero carb drink do. So I made myself a double-double (the repeated word is on purpose) ... a double-double JD and coke zero. Probably not my best decision. But when you work for such little money and only get one drink a shift Ė you make it a good one.

    3am

    The Booze

    So that would have been OK. Iíve read a lot about the controversial dangers of low carb / ketosis and alcohol and the messages are very varied. However, from my years of dieting Ė I know what my body can and canít handle. For me, as long as I stick to a zero carb drink, I donít usually suffer in weightloss, just suffer the next day with an almighty hangover from the sever dehydration. But, Like I was saying Ė That WOULD have been ok. If I hadn;ít decided to then go and buy a bottle of Jim Beam from the shop and drink another 3-4 glasses at home with my boyfrienmd and house mates. I put it all in to fitness pal Ė and thatís about another 600 calories added on to my day. Thatís the entire daily calories allowance on the Total Solution. GAHHHHHH. There is nothing I can do now, there is no way of telling as yet if this has affected my weightloss, or my abilty to get in to ketosis. At least I didnít turn to food after drinking like I usually would.

    The Positives
    - DAY TWO LOW CARB DONE. I managed to complete the whole of day two and stayed under the 50g carb allowance I had allowed myself
    - DRINKING HABITS CHANGING. I always drink on a Friday after work, so swapping my hefty pints, wines and ciders for a zero carb option was a step in the right direction
    - MEAL REAPLACEMENT INTRODUCTION. I added my first replacement meal as planned and didnít eat more than I had planned to. In fact, I ended up only having one shake and one meal.

    All in all, itís going to take a long time to get to where I want to be. Which is a healthy weight, happy with the way I look and making better choices for what I put in my body for the rest of my life. I had a hic up on day two, but Iíve still progressed.

    To anyone reading - Sorry that was so long

    Hello I must say your diary is a great read while I'm sat in the garden, you sound so focused its fab. I weigh the same weight as you. And I'm counting the days for when I reach the 12's I have Exante products the shakes are nice with a spoon of coffee.

    Good luck x

    Aww thank you honey-j There'll be much more of this - I find rambling helps me through it, haha It's the end of day 3 and still feeling focussed. It's great to chat to people that are a similar weight. Makes it more real that others are here doing the same as you. I see from your stats you've already lost a stone which is amazing!! How long did that take you? Are you doing TS or WS? Excited to try the shakes with coffee, do you have them hot or cold? When I was on SW I'd always make a a coffee with an options packet and stick in the fridge over night for iced coffee in the morn, think I'll have to try with the shakes xx

    Yes, i agree. You need to be honest & realistic with yourself and not set yourself up for a fall. If you do fall, you need to compare to your previous bad habits to show yourself you are improving. I'm not gonna be a size 8, salad eating, gym nut over night - but I'll get there How's your day been? xx

    Hey Biz yes I'm a stone down but I am the worst yo-yo dieter even though I promised myself I wouldn't do that this year. I started off on the Cambridge weight plan - then stoppe and bought loads of Exante shakes. I still have 2 stones to lose by 18 weeks for my girls holiday in Mexico. I'm wasting time by stopping diets every week lol but I can't afford Cambridge anymore so I'm reconsidering starting Exante or slim & save. My willpower is poor but now with summer approaching I need to give it a good go again........ Yes I have my shakes with coffee cold with ice its lush.

    I will ill pop by and catch up with your daily updates yiu never know you might bring me the boost and kick up the bum I actually need. Xx
