    Exante Total Solution: What I have learnt so far?
    • This diet works, it’s not a fad, it’s not dangerous and it’s the only diet I know where you are not hungry
    • Bad breath fades by week 3 – keep on drinking water
    • It would be worth me taking three days leave at the beginning – the start is tough
    • Drinking water solves most problems and helps almost every difficulty
    • I feel really well doing this, skin better, energy better, psyche better
    • Headache – only twice, no real problem
    • Ketostix are unhelpful and inaccurate and off putting
    • Weighing once a month is right for me
    • Bars – take or leave them, least favourite soup Mushroom, least favourite shake – strawberry – but its only fuel not a gourmet meal to be savoured. Serves its purpose, keeps me well.
    • Sight and smell of food can be distracting and challenging – not to be confused with hunger, just the appetite responding, doing what it’s meant to, stimulate eating!
    • Cooking requires tasting – how do you check for seasoning?
    • At 4 or 5 pm I am not sure if I am hungry or tired – my response has been food but now green tea helps. I have learnt tired = hungry - but it’s not true.
    • Some new abbreviations: LOL, POAS,LMAO,TOTM, OH, DD, DS, STS, AAM for starters
    • I can survive quite well without alcohol
    • The Minimins forum is great, inspirational and supportive
    • I can do Tickers and update it!
    • An extra jumper and socks are needed in the evenings , I get cold when I am tired
    • Exercise helps, just a bit 20 minutes per day is fine
    • Most of this in your head – when you know what you want and go for it – it makes you happy. It’s not three packets a day for life, just for now.
    • Soup in a flask for lunch works fine – shakes lose flavour and taste if stored
    • A splash of milk in morning tea is fine
    • Green tea is fine but do not stray from a loo!
    • It takes about two weeks to actually feel as if you are losing weight and anybody notices
    • It’s worth re looking at the FAQ page on the Exante site


    I hope this helps someone.

    GSQ - this is an excellent post. i've been struggling with just a little weight - compared to some! - for over a year. I just can't seem to get motivated. Your post IS motivating. I'm going to keep it and re-read it. Wine is my downfall, one glass and I'll eat anything. I know the problem and yet... One other difficulty is meeting friends and going out. I seem to have no willpower. But, your post is a help. Thankyou.

    An excellent recap for us all........ the bit I really took a while to get my head round was the '3 packs a day is not for life'..... it's only for a few weeks and looked at in the context of how long we've been overweight is really insignificant.

    And, I'm so glad the 'dog breath' doesn't last long!! :)
