    Some Really Good Tips on there Starlight. Thank you. I cannot actually get the Tomato and Basil one down at all ! We are all different though just with the same desires and hopes to be slimmer and healthier. Good Luck Ginger from another Yorkshire Lass x

    Hi all, just started this week too and found the veg not so bad. Tried Tomato today with fresh basil (from the tips on here) still not very nice. Was looking forward to liking them as could have a normal (well relatively) sit down for evening meal with my partner. Hey ho...will have to have a re-think....shake in a bowl????? Sad or what!!?? Onwards and upwards though read some of the inspiring weight losses on here and deteremined to give it a go!!

    Hi there - just had my very first tomato and basil - ermm it wasn't out of this world, but a slug of tabasco and a few grinds of black pepper made it ok. If all else fails , I will just tell myself it's anti-fat medicine !
    ; )
    Warmed me up , I'm freeeeezing !

    Hi all. I water down my soups and shakes a lot so they fill me up more. I find they're not so strong in flavour that way. Also, add lots of pepper so they end up like a pepper soup. Hope that helps.

    I think the key is no to compare them with other tastes ....they are "special" !!!! Just take em as part of the exante miracle ... I put chillli flakes and Tabasco in everything ( even in the chocolate shake I put in chilli .., tastes like posh organic stuff) ...

    Hi, what are the soups consistency like because on lighter life we used to turn our soups into tortilla chips by adding a drop of water to turn it into a paste and then spreading onto a microwavable plate and zapping for a couple of mins. The result was a a big biscuit like shape that you could break into crisps.Very yummy aswell x

    Exante soups are what?

    I bet you like Marmite! LoL

    Come on, the soups are so creamy! I've found that adding exactly 280ml of water, makes them with my favourite consistency.

    Your tastes do change as you go on with this; its worth keeping on going for a while. I think the taste is best not compared with food - they are magic fat burning fuel packets, they make you slim. When its done all the tastes you can imagine are out there waiting for you. I still don't do the bars but the soups are just warm liquids that keep me well as I shed pounds. I love Vanilla best.
