    Hi everyone

    Starting Exante next Monday, have my pack waiting. I was on Cambridge before and lost over a stone in a month, but think Exante is better tasting and cheaper. One thing I am going to miss is my morning porridge so today after reading Daily Mail about Dukan, made and tried the oat bran porridge. Delicious - 2 tbsp. oat bran, mixed with skimmed milk, microwave for 2 mins, add a tsp sweetner - job done. Will this throw me out of ketosis, once I am in it.
    Thanks for your advice. Am willing to make it with all water, if need be

    powder sweetner has carbs in it, and ordinary porridge is between 15 and 20, so very likely. Dukan is a different diet to exante so you can't really throw parts together and expect them to work :p

    Im afraid Exante isnt really a mix and match diet. YOu will get used to going without your porrige, sadly I miss a lot of foods too. But you know its only short term and thats what meal replacement is all about.

    good luck whatever you decide to do about the porrige.

    I agree with Bobbi you can't add things like this. You'll probably end up out of ketosis. You shouldn't be having ANY of those ingredients. No oats, no milk and no powdered sweetener.
