Top Tips for Adding more Variety to Meal Replacements

Top Tips for Adding more Variety to Meal Replacements

Our customers love Exante’s Total Solution plan because they don’t have to count calories or worry about what they put in their mouth. Our Meal Replacement Range provides structure and boundaries, which helps move away from the snacks and takeaway foods that are full of calories.

We know that this can test your determination, but there are ways to get more out of your Exante Meal Replacements with subtle changes that don’t introduce additional calories. Here are our top tips for adding variety to your diet while on a very low-calorie diet.

And Finally…

When you’ve been on Total Solution for over a week, your taste buds really do change and what you may not have liked in the first few days of starting Exante you might like. Here at Exante HQ, we tested this theory on 2 dieters who said they didn’t like the porridge. We asked them to try it again after being on the Total Solution for a number of weeks. We told them it was a different porridge (it wasn’t) and they said it was so much better than the ‘old one’ and they’d happily eat it! Try it for yourself, you may just be surprised!
