    I gave just started exante, have dabled in vlcds before I got preggars with my second and did well, now im back on it. Started tues after bank hols.

    First 2 days I did only shakes, today 2 shakes and a turkey dinner.. hmmm not sure, didn't like it much, bit salty. Why do they all taste the same! or at least have that weird background taste.

    So my baby is 8 weeks old and I have a 3year old too.

    It can be a bit of a pain going through packs finding what works for you and what doesn't. But hopefully you'll find something good.

    I like the normal porridge but sometimes it can be a bit sickly.

    Well done! Looks like you are doing very well :)
  11. How did you prepare your Porridge? I had my first one on Monday morning (Day 1 of Exante), which I made as recommended on the packet. It was awful; really lumpy and powdery. Did you mix the powder/water with a blender? I think I may try this; I was at work so just did it with a spoon in the bowl. The problem is, I found the texture so awful that it's kinda put me off.

    The fact that you both say it's good gives me some encouragement to try it again.

    I'm trying the get used to the bars - I find the chocolate orange one really salty. Does anyone else? They're also really dry and make me want to drink a nice cup of milky tea :(

    The shakes aren't too bad, but i may have a look for some interesting ideas to make them more varied. I got the multi-pack with strawberry, vanilla, mint choc, toffee and banana - any ideas for variations?

    I just followed the instructions. I did find the time to micro it was ott, so have to keep stopping and starting the micro to stop it boiling over but stirred it everytime I had to stop the micro :)
