    Hi all,

    I am hopefully starting Exante Total Solution tomorrow. Was meant to start today but the courier didn't turn up. I only ordered 6 days of supplies so I am hoping that will be enough to get me into ketosis and decide if I want to continue with the diet. It certainly would be cheaper than buying food as I seem to spend too much on that!

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Good luck Bella. Hope you like the packs & join us.

    Hello and welcome! :D

    No doubt the first few days are tough, then it does get easier - honest! :)

    Hi Bella, once you're over the first few days it gets much easier, it can feel bad (for some) until they get into ketosis but it's fine after that - good luck and please keep us posted as to how you're getting on.

    My Exante stuff arrived! I just had a toffee caramel (I think?) shake. I found it a bit bland but I'm eager to try the other flavors. I ordered one of each so I can find out what I like. I'd rate the toffee one 4/10.

    I'm feeling a bit funny in my tummy. I'm not sure I'll be able to drink all of the water today! I've got a 500ml bottle of water here plus a drink of blackcurrant flavoring with water. If I can drink this then I'm nearly halfway there.

    I already messed up!!!

    My calories are still low but my carbs are now not... :( I ate about 200 calories...

    I feel like such an idiot! Oh well, guess I can try again tomorrow... :(

    Try to get back on track today. Do you still have some packs due to eat ?

    I do, one left for today. Thanks for your reply. :)

    I guess it is just a matter of getting back on track, like you said. I guess it will delay ketosis for a bit but at least I'm still on a low calorie intake.

    That's right Bella. If you manage to stick with it today at least the little side track wont continue tomorrow x

    I did 20 mins of circuit training which apparently burnt 155 calories. I won't be doing it on days when I stick to Exante 100% until my body gets used to it (I think Exante recommended this time was 2 weeks). Now I don't feel so guilty about having a shake.

    Tried the chocolate shake and go - I'd give it 6/10. Didn't blend very well and doesn't really taste of chocolate, but then again it's not going to be Nesquick! I'm actually quite enjoying it. :)

    Here's to tomorrow being better than today!

    Keep going and you'll soon be losing and feeling better. If you don't like a shake you can also try it hot, I only ever have them hot.

    Just having a strawberry shake for my lunch. It's really quite nice, I'd rate it 7.5 / 10.

    Had a raisin bar for breakfast. That was okay, 5 / 10.

    So far so good, did a bit of walking. Had some peppermint tea.

    Edit - 2 hours on...

    I'm really struggling. All I can think about is food! I'm having 500 ml of water with 2 tsp of orange flavor to see if that helps. But I suspect all my cravings are emotional and not physical...
