    A friend of mine who wants to shift a far old amount of weight before her Christmas get away with the family wanted to join me on my Exante route...GREAT, until she worked out how much it would cost. No way with her recent cut in hours at work can she afford it. :(
    After some rummaging on the internet, she found a website called Slim and Save who do a vlcd much cheaper than it would cost her on Exante. I really want to see her happy and healthy, but I don't know anything about this company or the taste of their shakes. Has anyone any information or recommendations of them??? I don't want her to throw her money away on a bad diet, or worse end up ill! :sigh:
    She wants to start right away and I would really appreachiate any info anyone has, or even better, has anyone tried their shakes/soups??

    Many thanks

    *squeezy hugs for all our efforts* :)

    From what i can see on there website it isnt cheaper at all. For a VLCD option it says it starts at just 25.99 a week. If you buy exante bumper pack it works out at 25 a week xx

    Yeah, your right! But when your penny pinching it can all seem too much cost if you don't look at it the right way! BOGOF deals are the worst. Especially this time of year with easter just round the corner x

    I think you just have to look at it as £25 pw covering all your food and drink, no lunch/pub/snack expenses! I couldn't ever live off £25pw for all my food snacks/drink/booze before this so for me it saves me money :)

    Absolutely...£25 p/w is a bargain! It's the will power that sometimes strays off the lead!

    That one is definitely a lot dearer than Exante. Even buying 12 weeks supply its still dearer, not sure how she thinks its a lot cheaper :confused:

    I bet shes spending more than £25 a week on food at the moment

Well I can call her tonight and explain, I m thinking she read the discounted bits wrong...4 weeks at a time, not if you order 4 weeks in one go maybe?...Thank you everyone for your info, sure she will sort herself out on a plan soon x

    Id also be VERY put off by the fact they also sell slimming pills and acai berry

    Slimming pills along side a VLCD??? How totally irresponsible is that :eek:

    I think the cost of exante is a no brainer, no way can you eat for a week on £25!

    Tell your friend exante

    Ok... got a call, all sorted...she had it confused, she thought that the price was per week less and less, not that you had to buy it in bulk. Showed her all your thoughts and replies (thank you again everyone:eek:) and yes, there is a new Exante to join the club very soon! I will help out here and there with the pennies as and when, and everyone on here is so lovely that she is going to be a hottie in time for the Christmas holiday they have planned! :party0049:
