    just a quick question i read on the exante leaflet that its recommended to only have 1 bar as its got more fibre in and could have a laxative effect.i was wandering if you did have 2 would it knock you out of ketosis does anyone know or is it just for the reason given as i would have thought if it did knock you out of ketosis then they would have mentioned this. and to be honest i wouldnt mind the laxative effect it might help with the weight loss. lol.

    I'm not sure, but I think they're higher in carbs too, so might possibly put you out of ketosis :\

    Besides the laxative effect it is possible to knock you out of ketosis...if it does you will know soon enough as you will feel very hungry.

    I know eating two CD bars you can get windy cramps in the tummy...not sure about Exante as I never ate two in a day.

    I found this on the Exante website. The bars are slightly higher in calories but considerably higher in carbs compared to the shakes which are around 18g - 19g per serving.

    thanks for that i wont be doing it again anyway i think it was just i was so hungry i thought it better to have another bar than cheat on something else but today the hunger has subsided so hopefully ketosis is round the corner.

    I've been tempted to have another bar myself some nights, but simply because I love them ^.^

    It definitely takes you of ketosis as when I bought my first pack, I called the help line and they mentioned that.

    It doesnt necessarily knock you out of ketosis, but it might. Everyone is different, definitely not worrh having more than one :)
