Exante Diet ~ New Products | Lifestyle

I've reviewed a couple of very low calorie diets (VLCD) on the blog before, but never Exante. I did try this for myself last year and, as very similar to the others, I lost quite a bit of weight over the weeks I trialled the products. Unfortunately due to health reasons and medication, I've ended up putting that back on. Although with the products I received I did manage to loose another 6lbs in a week with the plan alone, exercise is proving tricky with my health situation at the moment.

This time around, Exante have a whole new range of products that I was asked to try. When you sign up to a VLCD plan normally you only have 3 'meals' per day, and normally including a couple of options such as snack bars and shakes. Exante have upped the ante (see what I did there?!) by allowing you to follow a VLCD plan and having 4 'meals' per day to keep your hunger at bay. Not only can you choose from bars and shakes, but now they have the option to include hot meals, scones, pancakes, gooey puddings, and pizza mix amongst plenty of other mouthwatering options!

I was kindly sent a few products to try from Exante, including the normal shakes, soups and meals; but my favourite products had to be the scones, pancakes, and gooey chocolate pudding. Unfortunately I left the pudding in a little too long and it was more a cake consistency, still delicious may I add, although it might be worth testing as you go along. My favourite shake flavour is definitely the honeycomb, although coconut is a high second place! The pancakes were really simple to make, and the maple syrup made them just as tasty as the real thing.

I really like the idea of being able to have 3 or 4 'meals' on the diet, especially now they have so many more interesting food types to offer. Before a VLCD could leave you feeling down and incredibly hungry, whereas the new Exante products have left me feeling full and curbed my hunger a lot more.

If you're interested in having a look at the diet plans they offer, you can do so here. They offer helpful advice as to the plan you may wish to follow and what would be best for you. They always have wonderful offers on so it's worth checking out if you want to bulk buy any of the products. You can pick up a variety pack for two weeks currently being sold from £60. This is a bargain price of £30 per week which normally shopping on it's own would come to more.
