Matthew’s Lockdown Weight Loss Transformation

Starting Weight: 21st 13lbs

Current Weight: 15st

29-year-old Matthew started the exante 800 diet during lockdown. He’s now lost an incredible 6 stone 7 pounds in just 4 months. After needing emergency back surgery due to his weight gain, he decided to take action and has transformed his body and his life with exante. Keep reading to find out his top tips, favourite products and how he stayed motivated to achieve his amazing results!

Why did you start the exante diet?

“For years I was having problems with my lower back causing grief and pain, and eventually my weight started to raise concern for me. I slipped a disc in my back resulting in sciatica down my legs. I was put on medication to treat and numb the pain but it was just getting worse. After having surgery to treat the issue, I decided I needed to do something. I hit my lowest point with my mental health and sought help with other methods of therapy alongside the medication.

At the beginning of 2020 my Fiancée and I booked a wedding date and venue. I used this opportunity to start working on my weight, but then COVID-19 hit and I found another reason not to start.

I decided to commit to the exante 800 plan and started my journey on the 1st May, whilst furloughed. I used the time to work on myself, thinking of people’s reactions when I returned to work. Here I am in September, completely off all medication in a new body. I have never felt better, all thanks to exante”.

What support did you have during your journey?

“Joining and reading the exante Official Group on Facebook was inspiring and motivating as a first-time starter, plenty of information was always readily available. It’s nice having many different opinions from people on different stages of their journey. My friends and family were also a great support with kind compliments and motivation to keep on plan!”

What are your go-to products?

“My favourite products are the Cinnamon Porridge Pots, which I couldn’t wait for every morning. Some of my other top picks include the Lemon Cheesecake Smoothie, Banoffee Pie Shake and Peanut Butter Bar!

What advice do you have for someone considering exante?

“My biggest piece of advice for someone starting their journey is to not be too harsh on themselves. Life is very challenging at times and some may fall off plan, but as long as you continue the hard work, you will see results”.
