    Starting advice

    Hello everyone!

    Before you started with your Exante products, did you cut down on calories/carbs for a few days before or did you just start after a "normal" day of eating. My starter pack arrived the other day (yay!) so was going to start today but not sure if I should try to cut down on food before I officially start.

    Thanks!

    I would just start today. I never cut down before I started. Tbh I think the very first time I probably had a final "pig out" the day before starting!

    Good luck and welcome xx

    Focus on the individual steps you need to take to achieve your goals, rather than worrying about the entire journey.

    I just went for it. No prep or anything. Had my final naughty meal night before then straight into 3 packs a day. It may just been you take an extra day to get into ketosis but people differ with that anyways!
    Good luck :-)
    i started at 16st8lbs ( eeeeek!! ) at the beginning of march. I've lost 80lbs so far and i'm on stage 3 1000cal programme hoping to lose another 5lbs and to maintain from there.

    Goal- 10st7

    I weigh in on a wednesday evening at 6.15pm

    Did any of you ladies get any side effects when not cutting down carbs/ sugars before starting?
