First proper attempt at dieting, hoping Exante will be manageable

#1
Hi all

I am awaiting my delivery of Exante after ordering yesterday, I think I've got a couple of stone ish to lose, but waiting for DD to finish watching Shrek so that I can weigh myself on the wii.

Very excited that I am going to be able to fit back into my clothes although a little confused about exactly what we're allowed.
I'm looking at doing the one with a small meal a day.

Also need to try and do meals where the kids can eat them too if anyone has any tips!

Good luck with Exante x

When your order arrives, there should be a couple of booklets in one of the boxes, they will give you a lot of information on the diet and what you can and can't have.

If you're looking for recipes, there is a recipe sub-forum here on minimins and also there are some recipes on the Exante website :)

Hi all, thank you for the welcome. I'm doing the Working Solution. Am very confused with what I'm allowed to eat or drink though. So far I have had a shake and a bar. I know I've got a soup left to have and a meal, but not sure how I should do it.
Will have a look for the recipes as I've got some chicken, but need to make it so the rest of the family ccan eat it too.

Yesterday went ok. Had a piece of steak and some ovened Kale with spices for my evening meal. Have got used to coffee with sweetner and a little vanilla powder. Tried green tea and was nearly sick so that's off the menu! Have swimming lessons with my daughter today so that will keep me occupied for a couple of hours. Managing to drink plenty of water which I never expected as I hate the stuff, although I've got up 5 or 6 times the last 2 nights for the loo and slept really badly as I keep dreaming about food. I so hope I go into ketosis tomorrow!

it took me a couple of tries before I liked coffee with sweetener and a bit of vanilla too. Now I just have a splash of milk instead. Can't you have a splash of milk if you're doing WS or are you using that option for something else?

I haven't included milk yet as I've only just worked out that I'm allowed it! So yes, I could do, will probably do so after I've used this vanilla packet up.

How do everyone managed to stomach the soups?

I've been swimming and now got a pounding headace, trying to down plenty of water. Yuck!

Doing okay so far I think. Went to OHs graduation today and nabbed a chicken skewer but it had sauce on it, also had a piece of salmon and cheese but gave the cracker to OH. Oh and had a glass of wine but got some ketostix and it went mid pink comparing it with all the pinks. Not sure if this means I'm in ketosis or not though!
