    Hi all,

    I read on another thread that Exante is one of the least expensive VLCDs. I'm currently doing the cambridge diet and have 4 packs a day (as i'm over 5'7). I don't really like any of the soups and just have the shakes, bars and tetras (ready made cartons). This costs me £52 a week. A friend recently tried Exante but said that he didn't like the taste of the packs and preferred the packs from when he did Cambridge. I'm just wondering if there is a real difference in taste or if it's more of a mind set. I know that Cambridge costs less than Lighterlife but if I could find something which is better value whilst i'm in 'the zone' I might be better off financially. But I don't want to mess things up either...be good to hear from others who have been in the same predicament.

    Having done cd many times and now exante I must say I prefer the taste of exante but you don't get tetras like you do with cd. If you can do it without tetras come over to the darkside lol x

    YES they taste good, and you do get used to them. I see them as fuel rather than meals. Some are better than others and the bars dont do it for me but other think they are great.

    The shakes have a better consistency on Exante and the chocolate and vanilla are yummy. The bars are bigger. Haven't tried the soups yet as didn't like them on Cambridge so am a bit tentative about those. However I would say there is not a huge difference between them. I do miss the idea of a weigh-in with counsellor on Exante though so you have to be better disciplined...

    Hi. I've just started on Exante, having used CD previously. Like you the financial saving swayed me (that and the fact I don't have a car now, so can't get to a counsellor).

    I was a bit hesitant because I liked pretty much all of the CD products, particularly the tetras (frozen) and the porridge - neither of which are available on Exante. I didn't like the CD soups though, so I wasn't sure which bumper pack to go for.

    Anyway, I decided to take the risk and try the multi one and I'm glad I did. I've tried one of everything now and I actually like them all. As others have already said the sweet ones are less sweet than CD, but I personally prefer that. The soups are fine and I find they mix up better than the CD ones. I can mix a soup with a whisk, without any lumps (makes it easier to take a soup to work without having to premix).

    Being able to buy a VLCD product online is great and the deliveries are quick, its just then a matter of willpower, with having no counsellor weekly weigh-in to help keep you on track.

    So, I'd say go for it and good luck :)

    I prefer the Exante shakes, they are very creamy and not too sweet. I am not a great fan of soups anyway, but they are also quite creamy although the vegetable stays with me for a long while!

    The bars are fine. They are big and they can be taken out for a meal on the go without melting. They are also don't taste of chocolate which is a big plus if you are a chocoholic and they can be divided up into pieces and eaten during the day rather than a whole bar at a time.
