Exante Diet – From £24.09
I’ve been harping on for ages about how I want to lose weight but I’ve done nothing about it. I am literally typing this after having a Big Mac Meal from Mc Donalds! Bad Neesha! I really am serious about losing weight but the effort that I feel needs to be put in isn’t something that motivates me. When Exante Diet offered me to trial some of their products I couldn’t wait to try it. I knew this would be the push that I needed to get started. Exante Diet were kind enough to send me a few of their items to sample including snack bars, cool drinks, hot drinks and meal replacements.
I didn’t know much about Exante Diet and thought they would be something similar to Diet Chef who provide you with alternate meals to help you lose weight. When my items arrived from Exante Diet they were all in sachet form. I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about this but I still wanted to try them all out.
Exante Diet have a section on their website where you can find out your BMI and then they advise you on a suitable diet plan for you. I really like that part of the site as it enables you to decide what the best plan for you is and then helps you choose the suitable items to purchase to stick to that plan.
The items that I was sent to trial were:
I didn’t have enough products to solidly stick to a diet plan but I decided to supplement what I would normally eat for an Exante Diet product.
I started the day with the Exante Diet Honeycomb Shake. Really simple to make just add the powder to 200-250ml of cold water and whisk. The Honeycomb Shake was super sweet and something I would class as a ‘treat’ product not a diet product. I was happily impressed with the taste of this one, not what I had expected at all!
I also tried the Exante Diet Peanut Butter Bar. I’m not really a peanut butter person but I wanted to try it anyway. I expected the bar to be quite hard but it’s actually really soft. I think if it wasn’t Peanut Butter flavoured I would have loved it. Next time I would probably go for the Exante Diet Double Chocolate Bar instead.
For tea I had the Exante Diet Blueberry & Raspberry Pancakes. They were actually really easy to make you pour the powder from the sachet into 100ml of water and then whisk. Once whisked together use the mix as if you were making a normal pancake. I was shocked at how nice the pancakes were! I was expecting them to be a bit bland but they were delicious and the flavour was amazing! Highly impressed with this.
Overall I was actually really impressed with the product selection that Exante Diet had to offer. The products were no where near as bland as I had expected them to be, they were all full of flavour and even for a picky eater like me there was something for everyone. For someone who is terrible in the kitchen they didn’t take a lot of effort to make either which was a bonus! Having terrible will power I don’t think it’s something I could personally stick to for a long period of time. If you’ve tried other weight loss programmes and want to try something new then I would recommend Exante Diet if your looking for something reasonably priced and not too hard to stick at.
Anyone else tried any meal replacement diets before? What do you find works for you?
