    I don't want to get in to a which diet is better debate, just a couple of simple question for anyone that has moved from Exante to Cambridge.

    Was there any difference in weekly losses?

    What are your thoughts on the differences between variety of products and the actual taste of the products?

    Which one would you choose if they were the same price?

    No debate - neither is better than the other for what they do, weight loss wise

    Exante - soups /shakes taste better
    CD - bars taste better plus there is porridge (SP?)
    But this is personal opinion

    Exante cheaper when buying monthly multi pack but more expensive if you pick and choose

    CD - lets you choose what you want and has extras such as water flavouring and mix-a-mousse

    Good and bad in both - personal choice I guess

    If price was the same would choose Exante - for ease as it's delivered

    Hiya,

    I asked this question couple of weeks ago on the exante forum as seriously considering it as half the price of cambridge diet for me...and have noticed the losses seem better and they have few more calories aday..still not decided yet :rolleyes: but the shakes are meant to taste better and the bars are personal choice, some love them some hate them:eek:

    I love the exante bars too but prefer CD bars as they're a bit chewier / chocolatey and the exante ones seem to start of cravings for me;)

    I am condsidering it because of the price as well. Probably for 2 months, then return to Cambridge.

    I do like the sound of the toffee, nut and raisen bars.

    Only because of being in a bit of a tight financial spot at the moment. Saving £110 over 2 months is quite tempting.

    Go for it, I say. It really is a much of muchness loss-wise and if you need to tighten the financial belt it makes perfect sense

    Good luck

    It is a big saving, I worked out with the bumper pack of shakes I save £80 a month, my cdc gives me no support so kinda a no brainer for me to change :p just wanna know that i'll like the shakes so gonna order 1 of each flavour and try em before my cd runs out:)

    Comparing the price of shakes on CD to Exante, it's saving £55 per month for me. Exante bars are more than CD bars, but I could probably get by on just shakes anyway.

    I think my mind is made up to be honest. Even if I don't like Exante shakes as much as CD shakes, it's only for a few months, so it'll be no biggy.

    28 Soups
    28 Shakes
    28 Bars

    Good luck - you'll do great

    Thanks. I think I'll go with the shake pack to be honest, as I'm not really a soup person.
