    Exante now Calorie Counting
    Hey People,

    I have been doing Exante for 2 weeks and after feeling so hungry and bad tempered I have decided to give this a go! I have been doing 6-800 calories on exante drinking just shakes *yawn* so i am going to stick to under 1000 cals week days and at weekends have a nice meal out either on the sat or sun but to stick to 1000 cals on one of the other- so basically one day off a week :) Just been to Tescos and have found some great finds thanks to your ideas and input, it's amazing how many calories are in things you would never of thought!

    So...

    Monday

    B - Was not hungry
    Snack- Low far crisps- 75
    L- Veg Curry and Pitta - 400 cals
    D- Noodles with kurly kale and low fat creme fresh - 400 cals approx
    Snack - Special K Bar- 89 cals

    Lots of water through out the day!

    Total cals :964


    Tuesday

    B- 2 slices nimble bread (no spread but teas spoon of creme fresh) and 2 thin ham slices 125 cals

    L- same as above (125 cals) plus packet of skips 89 cals

    Snack- 1 packet of tescos mini pretzles 93 cals and 4 x mikado sticks 44 cals

    Dinner- Sticky chicken made with diet coke and half uncle bens rice approx 400 cals

    Snack- maybe a mini milk or a carburys low far choc moose - no more than 70 cals

    total: 946 :)

    Just a few things i found at tesco today:

    *Tesco plain whit pittas 125 cals- compared to the brown or healthy ones which are 175 cals!

    *Quorn are now doing a sweet and sour ready meal which is massive and looks lush and 390 cals!

    *dutch crisp bread only 14 cals each! yum yum!

    Morning CC'ers!

    My monday weigh in showed i had only lost 1/2lb doing exante for a week... well today 3 days after doing cc'ing and actually putting food in my gob- 2lbs down!!! amazing! so my official weigh in day is going to be Saturdays this is because i am going to indulge on saturday nights (takeaway, eat out- but have a health option) and then i have a whole week of cc'ing until the next weigh in. I started exante 2 weeks ago at 19.12lbs, i am now 19.2-1/2 so that 10.5lbs lighter if i can get to 19 by the weekend that would be awesome. I am having between 8-1000 cals a day and not feeling hungry- i think the exante thing has made me greatful for any food at all! i want to get to 15 stone by June...do you think this is dooable? I am swimming 1-2 times a week and walking the dogs for an hour 3-4 times a week. Any ideas or similar experiences?

    So today's food-

    B- 2 slices Nimmble with tea spoon cottage cheese and a couple slices of wafer thin ham - 125 cals

    S- Packet of Skips - 89 cals

    L- Quorn sweet and sour ready meal 375

    S- Cadburys moose 69

    D- last nights sticky chicken and rice left over v small and pitta
    300 cals max

    S- Mini Milk 30 cals

    Total 988

    Welcome and good luck :)

    You sound like you are doing really well already - I think your goal is totally doable, just stick at it and work hard.

    You sound like you have found good staple foods for your diet. I have gone slightly off track, but found that as soon as you have those foods that you can always fall back on (mine are ham, Philadelphia cheese and wraps!) then you are getting there.

    Good luck :)

    I see, exante sounds hard!
    Atm I am calorie counting and using a bit of Rosemary conley for inspiration. Today is my first proper day and im starting on 1200 :)
    As long as you are feeling healthy and not hungry then good for you, your doing really well!
    Just remember you will still lose if you eat more and you wont plateau at such a low level of cals that you cant maintain your losses, eating more to start might help but you have to do what you feel is right for you!
    Ive got my fingers crossed for you that you will get to where you want to be! xx

    That's the thing that throws me more than anything else - the fluctuations on the scales. I still do lots of sneaky weigh-ins though ;)

    Hope the dog turns up soon and Mr Tesco has some nice low cal stuff for you.
