    I've been on exante now for just under two weeks. The first 10 days seemed easy but now it's half term week and all I can think about is food!!

    I lasted 10 days on TS, and then got ill with a cold. I am back on plan now, but I'm adding in a chicken salad every night - I'm finding that a lot easier.

    Thing is, there is cheating and adding food (AAM), the later is not cheating and should be done before you get to the stage of cheating ;)

    Absolutely - I don't feel like I'm cheating by having a salad every night - it's just making it a lot easier to stick to for me.

    I will be cheating on Saturday though - my dad is coming down from Cumbria and taking all the family out to dinner - I'm going to go out and enjoy myself, as I know I can get back on plan easily enough!

    I cheat and buy the salad bowls from M&S - it has lettuce, cucumber, spring onion, radish and tomatoes with a chive dressing. I take the tomatoes out though.

    I then have some sliced chicken or ham with it.

    Well I looked at the list on here and went by that. I know onions are a bit higher in carbs, but there's only a tiny amount in this salad.

    I have been having M&S sliced Mexican chicken which is delicious, and low in carbs aswell. Some of the other marinated ones they do are quite high - I presume that they contain a lot of sugar.

    I just had my first cheat. A leafy salad with mushrooms, radishes and chicken with some basil and pesto dressing. I think I did way too much exercise yesterday and had been feeling light headed and starving, even though I was in ketosis. I really enjoyed it but do you think it will have taken me out of ketosis? And should I finish my soup and shake which I still haven't had today? I feel like I've let myself down but my other half says a cheat would have been eating a mcdonalds or something!

    You can add a low carb high protein meal and still be in ketosis. Piece of chicken and some green veg? Tuna and cottage cheese. There is a list at the top as a sticky of foods. 3 packs and a 400 cal high protein meal. It's on the exante site as well. Weight loss will be slower on it, but ok if you only do it once in a while.

    Indeed, my 3.5 months was including AAM's, as I don't consider them cheating, they are just a different way of following the plan. Unfortunately the last few weeks AAM extended into things that were way off plan! And now struggling to get back on it... but did a whole day yesterday... and now time to do another one today :)
