    Help - Does Exante work? Gained!!!

    Hello, can anyone help me please?
    I started TFRs nearly 3 weeks ago. The first two I used Lipotrim and lost 18lbs (yeah!!) and i then switched to Exante as it is cheaper and I am fed up with the trek to the pharmacist with my twin babies in tow!
    I am 5 days into Exante and I know I shouldn't have, but i got on the scales this morning and I have GAINED 1lb!!!! How can this happen? I haven't cheated at all - stuck to it 100%! Any ideas folks?
    Starting Lipotrim again!
    Start weight - 13.7

    Keep off the scales til your weekly weigh in. I bet they'll show a loss x

    I have done Juice Fast and water fast in the past. Usually for me a gain would be sorted out with a enema. (they are very recommended in the fasting/detox world)

    This isn't fasting or detox though and it seems a bit if a drastic option at this stage

    I understand that this is a meal replacement program. Drastic is ones perception. Enemas need not to be feared, it just a bag and water.

    I don't fancy the enema route, either, and I have read several medical articles that say they can destroy the flora in the bowel or some such (don't quote me!). Why not a good but safer occasional dose of dulco-lax or some other gentle laxative? Or simply adding fibre to the exante packs by means of psyllium husk (will make shakes and soups thicker, smoother and much more satisfying) or drinking soluble fibre in your water/fluid allowance?

    If the problem is lack of bulk in the bowel - and on VLCDs this is very common - why not add the bulk rather than flush out the poor bowel with water?

    Nature built us so that water etc CANNOT penetrate the bowel in normal circumstances ie when in the bath or swimming pool. Washing it out is surely an unnatural process and any weight lost as a result will absolutely not be subcutaneous body fat!

    Indeed, to each their own. I know many swear by regular enemas but I don't think they are necessary or even all that helpful in weight loss. Please by all means continue to flush out if it suits you!

    Good luck anyway hun and don't fret on such a low daily calorie allowance you are definitely losing fat x

    Sorry I think I should have explained better. I was not suggesting a enema for weight loss, as in a diet aid. More as a aid to help clear back up waste accumulated from your bowels getting accustomed to the new way of eating. They have also been reported to help with the hunger you feel the first couple of days you start a new diet.

    I did not mean to offend anyone and apologise it I did so.

    Ok weigh in day.
    1st week on Exante (3rd on TFR's - week 1&2 Lipotrim) = stayed exactly the same :-(

    I have done LT in the past and lost weight every single week. I don't know why I have not lost anything on Exante
    Feeling a bit fed up
    Has anyone used their customer care ? was thinking of emailing them to see if they had any suggestions.
    Am having 2 shakes and 1 bar, lots of coffee and water - nothing else :-(
    Starting Lipotrim again!
