As you’ll know, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, I’ve been dieting since April of this year. I started at 13 stone 3lb and I want to get down to 10 stone – preferably before we visit Florida in April of next year. I’m currently around the 11 stone 9lb mark (weigh in tomorrow!) so I still have quite a way to go. As such, when I was offered some products from Exante Diet, I gratefully accepted.
Exante Diet offers very low calorie meals and meal replacements. There are a huge variety of products and flavours, all at a really reasonable price. Depending on what you hope to achieve, there are a wide range of Diet Plans. These include very low calorie, low calorie, 5:2 and a stabiliser program.
Some of the items I was sent included Shepherd’s Pie, Red Bean Chilli and Pasta Carbonara. There were three snack bars, three soups and three shakes – all in various flavours. When shopping on Exante Diet there are loads of different options for how you can purchase too – a starter pack, a four week or six week pack, boxes of 50 and more. Most prices are around £1.59 per item, but with the various deals, you can definitely get a lower price. Not only that, but the food tastes really good.
The first thing I tried was Pasta Carbonara. It was really quick and easy to make, which is definitely a necessity when dieting as it stops you picking or worse – ordering takeaway through laziness. You basically add hot water, cover in clingfilm and wait 5 minutes. After that you remove the clingfilm and microwave for 2 minutes, before leaving to stand for 1 further minute. The taste was delicious and I actually did find myself full. This makes the idea of dieting a lot better.
Since getting these products, I’ve tried sticking to 3 in a day. To be honest I often skip breakfast so that wasn’t really an issue, then it meant I had one actual meal in a day, one soup or shake, then a bar. It was really easy to stick to only 3, they taste good and I feel full. Come the new year I honestly think I might me making my own purchase of these foods – a little kick to get me to my target by April!
