    Question Looking for Exante Experiences/Opinions??

    Hi all,

    Im currently doing Lipotrim but at the beginning of December I will be coming off as my Pharamacy will no longer be doing it. I am taking December to mid January off as I will be out of the Country but am thinking of starting Exante when I return home.

    So I will wondering if anybody could just give me info about their experiences and/or opinions of Exante. And how the Total Solution works? Am I right in saying it's 3 meal replacements a day and 2-4 litres of water like Lipotrim?? And Im a bit confused about the food week too

    Thanks

    Hey, I changed from lipotrim too.
    Exante tastes much nicer, yep it's just the same 3 packs and water.
    I think the food break is just to cover there bums coz you ain't got anyone watching over you.

    Maybe naughty but I've never had a food break.
    I just restarted on Monday and I've got 4 stone to lose and don't intend to do any food breaks this time either.

    Exante is definitely less boring than LT but I have felt hungry a lot-even after 6 weeks I feel hungry many days a week.

    Their customer service is absolutely dreadful too which really puts me off.

    Also I've not lost anywhere near as fast as I did on LT (even starting from the same weight).
    START AGAIN (again again again) 8th Oct.

    Goals for this time-

    Manage a whole month on VLCD.
    Make it to December!
    Refeed PROPERLY for a week.
    Get a new dress and feel sexy!

    Have a GREAT 40th Birthday even though I'm single again.

    No weight goals this time - my scales are broken

    That's interesting. I thought on all VLCD's you lose close to the same amount and at approx the same rate? Im planning on doing Exante for a month and half maybe two months so I will be close enough to a healthy weight and will lose the rest through healthy eating and exercise. If you dont mind me asking how much have you lost in your 6 weeks?

    i think each person differs to WL
    my friend done it he lost 3st 4lbs first 6 weeks
    but from 2nd week he incorped exercise and more water
    When someone says: "You can't do that!"
    What they really mean is: "I can't do that."

    I didn't weigh myself at the start but I know which trousers I started in

    Same trousers were tighter when I did LT in Jan and 4 weeks later I was wearing the trousers I'm in now... It's taken 6 weeks on exante to drop the same size - I did start a little smaller this time too.

    I got weighed two weeks ago and last Friday (weeks 4 and 6) I lost 2lbs in 2 weeks. I get weighed again this Friday so I'll let you know.

    If it's bad I'm thinking of trying LT for a week to see how that goes.

    Also before I tried a week of exante after 4 weeks of LT as I was really bored. I gained weight that week!
    START AGAIN (again again again) 8th Oct.

    Manage a whole month on VLCD.

    Today is my first day on exante... not felt too hungry either which really surprised me... so far I've had a apple and cinnamon porridge for breakfast (it was lovely) and a chocolate shake for lunch (so yummy!) and I have a shepherds pie for tea but I haven't eaten it yet... I don't think I'm drinking enough water though as I have a headache today :/ if you like I can update you next week to see how it goes (I've never been on a vlcd before so fingers crossed this works!)

    Oh please keep me updated Im finding it really difficult to decide whether I want to do Exante after the holidays or go back to Lipotrim... I think Exante has a slower weightloss rate (I could be wrong??) which is kind of making me gear more towards Lipotrim. But I really dont wont to go back to the same boring flavours ha . Best of luck on your journey snookiepuss!! Have you got a diary? Maybe I could subscribe if you do

    Update - been weighed.

    I've lost 10lbs this month on exante... On LT I never lost less than a stone in a month.

    Exante's customer service is dire - this REALLY puts me off ever doing them again.

    Exante is less boring than LT though and cheaper.
    START AGAIN (again again again) 8th Oct.

    Goals for this time-

    Manage a whole month on VLCD.
    Make it to December!
    Refeed PROPERLY for a week.
    Get a new dress and feel sexy!

    Have a GREAT 40th Birthday even though I'm single again.

    No weight goals this time - my scales are broken

    I've lost slower on Exante because the calories are higher than other VLCD's (CD a shake was about 150, Exante 205). But I much prefer the taste of the Exante ones which is half the battle...with CD I would heave having some of them, it's only a matter of time then when you go back to your old ways if you are drinking something that you hate.
