    Im editing this first post as the thread gets longer, people understandably cant be bothered ploughing through it for the info they want, so all the 'What bar can I have' threads are starting again which kinda defeats the purpose of this sticky

    Bars in place of Exante

    Biggest Loser Bars (All flavours)
    Asda Measure Up Meal Replacement Bars
    Tesco Ultra Slim Meal Replacement Bars

    Be sure and check its the meal replacement ones not the snack ones.

    They are almost identical to Exante, the same rules apply. One per day and they WONT knock you out of Ketosis :)

    Asda had strawberry and yogurt or chocolate and toffee ones £2.48 for THREE!!

    Or BL breakfast bars, mint fudge and choc crisp £1.50 each

    They also have ready made shakes which is good to know. I would never use them as a rule but Ive been caught short at work a few times. Id rather opt for that than have nothing or make a bad choice

    The biggest loser bars are MINGING :yuk:

    That said, we've said time and again that we all have different tastes and you may like them - I hope you do

    Just be carful of the bars as they may not contain all the vitamins etc that are in the exante ones, shame they don't do an offer on the bars, as thinking of coming back to exante but need the bars for work so would have to buy a box plus all the shakes :rolleyes:

    Believe me Asda staff were almost charging me rent the amount of time I was in that aisle lol As I said I checked every single item in all 3 bars and theyre pretty much identical. The Asda ones are part of a meal replacement plan their own TFR diet :)

    Im doing biggest loser and the breakfast bars are really good. The chocolate crisp are good they really fill you up in the morning.

    I have been known to eat the slimfast ones as well only because they have same cals/protein/carbs etc in them only because there werent any BL ones left.

    I don't think your supposed to though because does it not kind of contradict the diet?

    I'm steering clear of bars, personal choice but they're too much like choc bars and I'm trying to lose my taste for stuff like that. I'm a sucker for flapjack though, just got to convince myself they're rubbish xx

    Do you think that I could get away with 2 exante prods and an asda one? Can't get away with having Exante bars around as find them too tempting

    Diet chef is,on the whole,yummy but I need to try to lose 20lbs sharpish then try the scenic route

    Thanks

    I have been using the tesco ultra slim meal replacement bars as well as the exante ones, they are pretty identical nutritional wise and it hasn't seem to effected me.

    Also the ultra slim raspberry meal bars are yummy!

    Really good to know that you could use different bars if you want. So when I come back to exante when I have 2 weeks off. I can just order the shakes and get the bars from asda.

    I've tried the biggest loser mint bar. It was nice to have something to chew but wouldn't describe it as delicious. The asda choc crisp bar is ok as well. Both of these are infinitely better than the atkins bars (choc orange and choc decadence) that I had to attempt to eat today because I'd stupidly forgotten my shakes for a 14 hour day in work. :-( still trying to get the rank, evil taste out of my mouth...

    Oooh, I like the idea of some variety on the diet bars... wondering if I would be too tempted to eat more than one.... but definitely next time I'm in Asda I'll take a look :)
