    Just wondering if the bars affect weight loss, particularly at the start of the diet
    Want to order another bumper pack but not sure wether to get bars or not
    Lost 7lbs with a bar most days so im really happy though :)
    Asking because my Cambridge counsellor always tended to shy away from them for the first few weeks but I find them great when on the go
    Thanks

    No they dont, theyre meant to be taken from day 1 and they only have the same cals as packs. Why would they affect your losses :confused:

    As exante is so very similar to Cambridge I just wondered if they did
    On Cambridge I was told bars had a higher carb content so could potentially throw you out of ketosis
    Great news that they won't as I love the bars x

    Even IF they did knock you out of ketosis it would affect your weight loss :)

    You can lose weight on a VLCD without being in ketosis

    I was told the same thing by my CDC and wasn't allowed bars for the first week, but have had them from day 1 on Exante and been fine so far in terms of losses. The fact that they are nowhere near as nice as the CD ones is another matter!!

    I've had no issues with using the bars.

    i lost 19lbs in the first week and was having one every day.
