    Well,

    Today was day one of my Exante TS diet.

    Breakfast - : Apple & Cinnamon Porridge, made up with only 150ml of water. I tried it as it was and it was ok, more apple than cinnamon so I added a small amount of ground cinnamon and it was much nicer.

    Lunch - : Toffee Caramel Shake, split into 3 to make coffee through out the day. Made the 1st coffee with 17g of shake powder and 70ml of Nesspresso Blue Lungo over ice. Nice but will make the next one with a stronger coffee as I struggled to taste the coffee over the shake.

    2nd coffee made with 1/3 shake powder and a stronger coffee, still OK but I am struggling with an after taste from the shake.

    Evening Meal - : Pasta carbonara, made as directed. Tried it and wasn't to impressed so added an extra 150ml of water and 1 tsp of curry powder. It made a nice soup with the pasta providing a nice bite.

    Drinks : - I hade 1 250ml glass of Blackcurrent water. It was OK nice as a change from plain water.
    1.5 lt of plain water.

    Well here goes one of the big tests, cooking proper food for the kids. My wife is also on Exante TS so its only the 2 children who need real food. Off to cook some mince up, Spaghetti Bolognese today and possible Chilli tommorow. I just know I will want to pick as I cook.

    Well, managed to cook for the kids. It was hard not to eat/taste as I went but got there in the end.

    Must stay strong, it's only day one!

    Great start to the day Chris. Love how you give the shakes a cocktail feel to them when you describe their preparation. Have a good day

    Well, start of day 3.

    I had a shocking night sleep. Legs are aching after my run yesterday and I have a headache to boot.

    Guess I best get out of bed and have 1/2 a vanilla shake with coffee to start the day.

    Well breakfast done, vanilla shake with coffee is nicer that toffee, but not as nice as chocolate.

    4km on the treadmill. 1.5% incline 23.34 mins.
