    Hi! :wavey:

    Hello everyone,
    I'm starting Exante tomorrow - very excited!

    I've been on Slimming World for quite a while getting down from 15st 7lbs to 11st 1lbs. I have however found that I have become bored with the plan and have gained weight - making me now approx 12st 7lbs.
    My target weight is 11st and I'm hoping that a few weeks of Exante will get me there.

    I'm a self confessed binge eater and I'm hoping that by eliminating food for a few weeks, it's help get me out of that cycle.

    I've never tried a VLCD before and am quite nervous about what to expect.
    Hope I can stick with it.

    How has everyone's experiences been of Exante and any tips for a newbie? X

    Hi Wavey.. I've done slimming world before and always gone off track cos I've been tempted by syns etc.. I find Exante easy because it takes all the thinking out of dieting.. I have just restarted Exante and am on day four.. The first 3 to four days are really really hard but after that it's easy.. My target is also 11 stone.. Good luck if you decide to do it!!

    Thank you!
    I've just gotten out my Exante packed for tomorrow. Planning on Vanilla shake at around 12, Toffee Caramel shake at around 4 and the Mushroom Risotto meal around 7.

    Am leaving my purse at home tomorrow so I'm not tempted when I'm out on the road.

    I know what you mean about Slimming World - it's a good plan and will be nice to use when I'm maintaining my weight but you simply don' lose enough weight on it and it does become boring after a while.

    Xx

    That's what I usually do too.. I hold off having my first shake bar or soup for as long as possible, normaly about one. I have my second at about five when I get in from work. This then means I have at least got somthing for my evening. The good thing about eating the last pack as late as possible is you can go to bed early either if it gets hard to resist temptation or before you feel hungry again. You mentioned binge eating. I know how hard that can be. This diet definatly helped me break the cycle of either binge eating or boredom eating because once in Ketosis I had loads of energy.

    I'm hoping it'll do the trick. Binge eating has always been part of my life - I can manage for months but then it takes hold and I will binge solidly for days or even weeks.

    Here's hoping day one will be okay.

    Thanks for the support and tips xx

    Good luck Hun, I lost 2.5 stone in Oct-Dec 2012, went to Greece last summer and lost another 1.5 stone in 6 months but since coming home in November I've put 2 stone on so am back on Exante hoping to lose it before I go away in 6 weeks.

    Once the first week is over and you see the big loss on weigh in its definitely great motivation to keep going. I just have vanilla shakes (with a spoon of coffee) and chocolate mint. I find limiting my choices helps as it totally cuts out having to decide what to have each day and thinking about food, plus, as a self confesses chocoholic, I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything either. On top of my water intake I'm drinking approx 6 cups of green tea a day and I take a mug of peppermint tea to bed with me and it all seems to be working well

    Thanks hun. It's nice to hear from someone else who has switched from Slimming World.

    Am doing okay so far. Sipping water and haven't had the first pack yet. Hope I'll be able to do it xx

    Wow! Amazing loss.
    I too like the fact that the packs take away and decisions. It's easier if you haven't got to think of food.
    Can't wait to weigh next week!

    Good luck x

    I'm okay so far. I've almost drunk a litre. Will have the first pack around half 12, plan to have pack two around 5 and pack 3 around half 7.

    Hope I can do it.
    Was so fired up this morning and now I'm starting to worry about managing without actual food x
