    if we went to normal foods after this.. and added up how much carbs, fat, and protien we were having on exante and ate that exact same amount in normal foods.. would the weight loss be similar?

    in theory yes, but it really is not a lot of food and you would have to be very careful about getting the right nutrients :)

    If you want the food version then you'd need to think about Atkins, which has a similar effect in that it puts your body into ketosis

    Exante + Protein + Weights!
    Calories come from carbs, fat, protein or alcohol. So if you did that, you'd still be on 600 cals and like Hannata says, it's unlikely you get the right vitamins. You could try to use the same percentages.
    If you want to do something like that then weightlossresources.com is amazing. I am planning on using that to maintain my weight for some time. It tells you how many calories you can have to maintain, suggests the recommended carbs, fat, etc.
    I find it easy to maintain on a low GI diet and a lot of people do that.
