Thanks for Kinds words
Enlighten - I think it must be to cover themselves. Exante do state that I can't really do anything lower than "working solution" which is 1200 calories a day, but seeing as they physically cannot stop me going lower, I've opted to try the 800 cal option and see how I get on. Ketosis is key for me, if I am in ketosis I'll be fine and can control myself. My CDC was so supportive though and my OH is still on Cambridge (he's lost over 2 stone now!) and he's shrinking in front of me. So proud of him.
I've had the Exante products before and I'll be honest I much prefer Cambridge. I don't mind the Exante stuff and definitely prefer the price tag - but I just find the Cambridge products way nicer. I didn't like half of the Exante products last time around, and too many of them are too close to being "real food" for me. For example - I loved the taste of the pancakes but they are too like real pancakes, and as soon as I started eating them last time, I just wanted bacon and eggs and all the lovely but terrible things that go with pancakes. Like real maple syrup (I've tried the 0 calorie version and it is vile!)
I find the Exante bars too salty and a bit of a weird aftertaste...... I found the soups flavorless and the meals.... I love the Carbonara but the rest....yuk!
So as much as I am looking forward to the weight loss continuing, I am not excited that I can't have my usual Cambridge products. I dunno - maybe I'm a food snob, but the Cambridge ones just taste less artificial and a little better made to me.
But I am looking forward to saving like over £100 quid a month. That I will not deny
I actually also tried one of Superdrugs own brand meal replacement bars yesterday - I didn't have any products with me (I thought I had soup in my drawer at work) so I went into Superdrug, aiming to get one of the lighter life bars they sell. But I seen this Crunchy Caramel Superdrug one that was only £1.25 and my goodness - it was heavenly!
I'm going back today to get a few more. Seriously of all the bars I've ever tried, this was by far the nicest
It was just absolutely delicious! no nasty aftertaste either!
Anyways best get off here and get some work done....
Happy Tuesday all x
