40 inch waist to a 34 inch waist: Meet Josh

 Meet Josh from Clowne who decided to lose weight during lockdown, and he did! His waist measurements went from 40 inches to 34 inches and he took control of his health. 

Start weight: 17 stone 10lbs 

Current weight: 13 stone 9lbs 

Losing over 4 stone is an incredible achievement and he achieved this with the help of the exante diet plans which encourage following a very low-calorie diet in order to lose weight. 

Josh lost over 4 stone

What diet plan were you following?

I had 3 meal replacement products a day and then a 200-400 calorie meal at night.” 

How did you find losing weight over lockdown?

I’ve tried exante a few times in the past but life usually gets in the way, meals out with family etc. sI saw the lock down as an opportunity to stick to the diet and lose some weight. 

What are your favourite products?

“I love the salted caramel bars and the porridge pots.” 

What advice would you give to others considering starting the exante diet?

“If you have a cheat meal, only have 1 cheat meal, don’t let it turn into a cheat day or week. Also try and get your partner to do the diet with you, this really helped me!” 

How much weight did your partner lose?

“Lucy lost just under 3 stone. We helped keep each other on track and exercised together. We usually had a wrap and chicken salad. Sometimes we will have a steak or a cooked breakfast. Depending on how hungry we are.”

What is your most memorable non-scale victory?

“Not being able to fit in any of my clothes was a real bonus. When we started seeing people again after lockdown people couldn’t believe how much weight we had lost!”
