    I was just wondering who is doing TS and who is adding food? Has anyone tried both and which have you found better? So far I have just had packs, but 4 a day due to lots of exercise, I just don't think I could manage with food as wll as I would want more than is allowable!

    Hi,
    I'm on TS trying to stick to 3 packs but having an extra half in the eve if I really need to.
    As you say I would find it so much harder having an actual meal everyday. The risk of overdoing it for me would be huge. Having said that I have had a day or two when I have had guest round and have had to eat but have managed to keep it low carb and relatively small and keep in ketosis. But I'm not sure I could do it everyday.

    Just a quick point, about the excercise, on some other threads people have mentioned that it may not be a good idea to do too much in the way of vigourous excercise when doing a vlcd and that it is better to stick to gentle and resistance work or pilates.

    Neway all the best

    I'm doing TS, WS would be similar to Slim Fast and I always eat too much when I'm doing that so I'm sure I'd be the same using Exante =)

    You shouldnt be doing lots of exercise on this kind of diet.... Exante say only 20 mins a day. Youre not consuming enough calories to deal with a lot.

    If you can manage TS stick with it, the results are great :)

    The exercise for me is non-negotiable. Its my life and soon to be my career so if it comes to one or the other then the diet will have to go, but so far I am feeling good, energy levels are high, my timings etc aren't suffering, etc etc.

    I want to do this diet once, and get my usual body back asap!! So fingers crossed I manage TS...

    As the exercise is a deal breaker I would say LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. Not at the mo (so busy with job) but I normally have a heavy-ish gym routine (7-9 classes pw) and still did BP/BC/Spinning. If I was feeling a bit :jelous: I'd take it down a notch - not jump around as much / peddle a little slower on the sprints etc.

    Like I've said before I completed my OCR ETM Lvl 2 whilst on SS whilst working full time so course was once a week on a saturday - 5 straight hours of exercise :eek:. BUT I LISTENED TO MY BODY

    If the exercise is non negotiable and if you do so much, maybe TS isnt the best idea for you. If anything youd probably be better emailing Exante and asking their advise which plan you should follow. Id definitely say TS maybe not a good idea....
