    Hi All,

    I'm currently doing WW and trying to lose 4st for my wedding in October but need to lose 6.5st due to health problems (had diabetes when pregnant and have been told to lose weight). I am doing OK with WW having lost 8lbs in 4 weeks but I feel that I'm going to get dispondent and give up. I don't have the willpower! I've read a little about Exante and am seriously thinking about giving it a go and just wondered how all you Exante people are getting on with it??
    Thanks so much xxx

    Exante - Total Solution
    Hi :) I've really enjoyed Exante so far and hopefully till goal. Just simply because you don't feel hungry after 4-5 days when in ketosis, so no need to cheat and you do not have to plan any meals just have a shake or soup or bar. It's the easiest diet I have come across and have done slimming world and weight watchers :) Hope this helps in some way... xx

    Hi there

    The results are fab if you stick to it. VLCDs arent for everyone though and personally I find this a hell of a lot harder than WW ever was but its totally worth it

    If you have a look around the forum youll see some amazing weight losses :)

    Thanks guys :) And do you all think if you were doing weight watchers etc you would have lost the same amount as you have done with Exante?? Half of me is really keen to do it and the other halfis really scared that I won't have the willpower! xx

    I just worry that because it's quite extreme, I will put it all back on. That's the thing that concerns me most.Think I will have a good ole' read up and make a decision and stick to it!!! Thanks very much for all of your advice though xxxxx

    Its like any diet - if you dont change your eating habits once the weight is off then yes the weight WILL pile on but that nothing do with the speed you lose it at :)

    It's not the type of diet that determines if you put weight back on - it's what you put in your mouth once you get to goal. This is hard for the first few days but when you see the results it really spurs you on for the next week and it gets easier as time goes by. xx

    You'll lose a stone a month on Exante probably more the first month so sticking to it you could be at goal in what August? Which gives you time to get used to eating properly again.

    As far as saggy bits go lol. You'll get them on any diet not just a VLCD if you're going to get them but they can be fixed :)

    Because this is by far easier and probably cheaper and you dont get the same kind of losses on Atkins, really the 2 diets arent comparible theyre totally totally different :confused:

    At £25 a week, if you do the bumper pack, this diet is way cheaper than an Atkins diet, involving eating high protein etc. I find the weight loss fantastic, and am really pleased I'm following Exante. With a lot of weight to lose, I found with Exante I could think about setting my goal to lose all the weight I wanted, on WW or something like that it would have taken me years to lose it all, now I'm actually close to getting to overweight and I've been on it 6 months.

    You have to work out what is right for you though.
    Good luck :)

    Yes please feel free to look around, just not at my diary! ;) ....well not at the moment!

    Exante is fab, but harsh, but if you have a firm goal in mind like you have it will get your there :D

    Thanks for your messages guys. I'm really going tothinkaboutit carefully. I understand it's good weight loss but it's just whether I can stick to it :/ andI am SO worried about putting the weight onas quickly as it will come off (I know what I'm like!) Will let you all know how I get on.
    P.S. Well done to you all - you're all doing brilliantly! :D xxx
