Hello again, (:
Well I have now completed a week of Exante, and will be weighing myself tomorrow morning. I still absolutely HATE the products and am SERIOUSLY struggling, I fear however that if I give up, or attempt to transfer onto a different plan, it will not happen at all and I will be right back to square one. I have been on Atkins in the past (and to be honest cannot remember the reason I gave it up) ahaha. I think I am going to have to live on the porridge on Exante (that is if I like it) as I have got to the point where I can no longer hold my nose and down the soups they are THAT horrendous!
Hope you are well also, and good luck on Atkins. x
Day 6 on Exante for me, I have to say so far I loved the veg soup and the Thai Chicken was quite good too, banana shake was quite nice, like the toffee raisin bar but find it very sweet, not overly keen on the choc orange one as again I find it very sweet and a bit of an aftertaste but overall I find it 100 times better than Lipotrim and the products are much more filling and I'm not dreading any of the flavours, so pretty pleased at that.
Feeling good today, Friday is normally spent hungover on the couch after partying on a Thursday night, but so far DH has been up and out for his run and I've tidied the house and ready for going out for a look round the mall. Quite nice to enjoy our day off without the terrible head and feeling rubbish all day.
Have a great day ladies!!

I have already spent money on Exante, and feel obliged to finish the bumper pack. Also I know how I am, if I attempted to move onto another VLCD I would end up taking weeks off in between, and the change over would never happen. Furthermore, as far as I am aware Exante is the cheapest VLCD out there, because I am still in full time education, I do not have the time to get a job so I therefore have no 'steady income' thus my hesitance to waste money.
It is really upsetting me that I cannot stomach the majority of the products. That being said, I am beginning to get used to the bars (even though I still find them powdery). The shakes are growing on me very slightly aswell, however I can very easily mask the taste of them with coffee. It is just the soups really, it seems with each one I try it gets worse. I am scouring the site to try and find ways of downing them as I seriously cannot eat them as a 'soup'.
Apart from my obvious dislike of the products. As we have spoken about recently Starlight, my body is seemingly rejecting the food. Basically I suffer belly ache followed by diarrhea (sorry) however once I have opened my bowels it vanishes. Now, I must say this is not a completely unique feeling, as I have experienced this is the past when my body is reacting badly to a particular food I have eaten (have never quite found out what that food is) hahahaa. Because I have ordered the bumper pack, I am not sure which product is the cause, whether it is indeed all of them. I would like to try the porridge as I absolutely LOVE porridge, and am hoping it is softer on my stomach, however money comes into play again. I hope you can understand the predicament I am in, but I really thank you all for your concern. x
Hello all I'm getting there slowly lol weigh in tomorrow hope to be 11.12
It is tempting it has to be said, but money is a BIG problem for me. Also I just weighed myself and have lost almost 12 pounds in this first week (and I am not exceptionally heavy which is usually the cause of such drastic weight drops).
I will attempt to stick with Exante for this month, and see how I go from there. By the way a MASSIVE well done for your weight loss, that is absolutely incredible. x
I need to say something to you. I say it out of genuine concern, believe me.
Your posts truly scare me. Forgive me, but I had to say that. I see a worrying trend.
Your goal weight is frightening. It will make you significantly underweight. how heavy are you now?
You state that you are in full time education. How old are you?
Does your family know what you are doing?
I think you need to talk to someone about all this - family, friends, your GP.
Forgive me if I have it all completely wrong, but my professional concern is genuine.
Think about what I've said. Take care of yourself.
Please do not worry, there is absolutely no need, I honestly am a very sensible girl. In answer to all your question, and queries;
You are absolutely spot on about my 'goal weight', I just calculated it online and realised that it is just falling in the underweight category, so I will therefore up it to 8 1/2 which sits me nicely in the healthy range. Believe me when I say, I am not in ANY way attempting to look like a stick, but I carry my weight awfully and when in the past I have lost 2 stone it was barely visible. Subsequently I believe I will need to drop a lot of weight in order to see a noticeable difference). I currently weigh just under 13 stone, so as you can see I am on the fine line of obesity hence the NEED to lose weight (leaving aside my appearance). I am 18 years old, but please do not allow that to form an opinion that I am an ignorant, unintelligent 'child', as it cannot be further from the truth. No my parents do not know I am specifically on 'Exante', as they would not believe me if I told them it is nutritionally balanced, and offers me all the vitamins and nutrients I need (this would make them worry, and it is the LAST thing I want to do). Nevertheless my parents are FULLY aware I am on a healthy eating plan (which I am indeed) so they are not being kept in the dark whatsoever. My life at present is far from 'exciting' as I have completely allowed my weight to consume myself and my life. At 18 I should be enjoying life (not necessarily partying and clubbing, as that is not my idea of 'fun'). Let me reiterate that there is absolutely no need to worry, I am following a plan that I am certain offers me everything I require as a woman. However your concern, is humbling and I feel honored that you care enough to worry. Thank you so much. x
Hi buddies I have been out of circulation for a few days. how is everyone doing? I am on day 5 and I am loving it as I am in keto now. All the hunger is gone! I feel sorry that the Packs are not sitting well with you, with me the jazzing the soup with boulilin, chilli and sometimes curry is doing wonders for my taste buds. having the sandy bars with tea and sweetener is also great! Try handing on till your packs finish then you can try calorie counting. For me that is a no go zone as I find it hard to stop eating when the food is nice so VLCD is definitely the only option. Since being on this diet means on other food or expensive drinks I guess I will be saving loads.
Elloooooooo how is everyone?
