Hey guys I'm starting exante today, i need to lose 5 stone (First large target).
Would love to hear any success stories, hints and tips to maximise my time doing it. Sick of being a large version of myself but often find it hard to stay motivated 😏
Hope to hear from you 😘

Ok so I did two shakes and a low carb meal today, I'm going to try and stick to three shakes tomorrow...I prepared the pasta carbonara but it smelt awful so had to bin it, so far I only like the mint chocolate shake which maybe an issue πŸ€” (this thread may just end up being my personal ramblings πŸ˜‚)

So day two and I have had 3 shakes ( go me) BUT i have had a little bit of cheese, ham and cucumber...I can't seem to get past the "I need to physically eat something" stage πŸ€” I'm hoping tomorrow I can stop that. I'm keeping my water intake up too but I'm not sure if I'm subconsciously doing it because I'm going out and starting running (never ran in my life but feel like I want to do it) and I consuming extra calories for that. Either way weigh day will tell me.

Hey there! I would go ts personally but if you struggle you can go to man plan which consists of 4 exante meals a day or 3 meals and one 200ckal low carb meal. Generally men loose better then women so you maybe ok on the man plan. Both will keep you in ketosis I believe and I think you will be fine with swimming. I go running and just add a small bit of protein in to compensate for the extra calories I burn.
I'm on day 5 and have hit a wall where I just want to eat, I'm hoping to keep pushing through and it will turn around in the next few days!

Sorry to hijack your post but Spurnal has posted this question in at least 6 different threads so far that I have seen-the exact same question each time...Perhaps you could post your own thread instead instead of asking the same question over and over and over?

Just hang in there and it WILL get easier...For me day 4 was always the hardest(I'm a restarter) but after that it was mostly smooth sailing.

Sounds like you're doing great!
If having a low carb snack gets you through the first week then so be it!
Hope you're still doing good x

Thanks! I felt really week today and had a low carb dinner and pudding (sugar free jelly and cream) I know I shouldn't of and I'm scared I've messed it up now but I will have to deal with the consequences 😫 xx

Honestly I didn't start feeling or seeing a difference until I'd lost over 4 stone, although other people started noticing before then. And then I noticed the most random things-like my thighs not touching the sides of the bath anymore. That was awesome!LOL. I look in the mirror and still can't really see a change, but my clothes are smaller so there must be one.

Seriously are you going to ask the same question all over the forums like you did yesterday? You asked in my diary thread and now here too....

Put it behind you! It was only half a doughnut. Could have been much worse. Drink lots of water to flush the carbs out. I don't test for ketosis every morning. And I have discovered that if I weigh myself when I wake up I weigh more than if I wait 30 mins and then weigh. Lord knows why but it helps keep me motivated. Next time you want to eat post here first. Delay the food by doing something else. Paint your nails etc. You'll find the urge passes. You can do it!!
