Tasha has lost 10 stone using the exante 800 plan

When did you start your exante journey?

Tasha started her exante journey on 1st April 2019. After seeing herself in the background of a selfie her son took she decided she needed to take action and set a good example to her son. 

What are your favourite products?

Tasha loves the Strawberry Jam and Yoghurt Crunch Bar and the Lemon Bar when she fancies a sweet treat! When she wants something warm and savoury, Tasha enjoys the Indian Daal Pot Meal. 

What advice would you give to someone interested in the exante diet?

“My advice to anyone that wanted to start exante is go for itI have found exante extremely easy!”

Tasha acknowledged that the first two weeks are the hardest, with hunger and headaches affecting her. She overcame this by drinking plenty of water to keep hydrated, which is essential when using a very low calorie diet.

“Once that is over it will just come naturally. It fits in with my busy lifestyle as it’s grab and go food.”

What are your non scale victories?

For Tasha, it wasn’t just about losing the pounds. Seeing her measurements getting smaller helped keep her motivated and gave her the reassurance that her hard work was paying off.  

“I have always been confident, but I’m even more confident now. I feel fitter and have got more energy.”

What I’m really happy about is that my son can now get his arms around me and gives me the biggest, tightest cuddlesHe says he can get his arms around me now, which is the best feeling ever!

What did it feel like when people noticed you had lost weight?

“People started to notice my weight loss properly when I lost about 4 stone.”

“The biggest surprise was the amount of compliments I get from people now. After posting my before and after pictures in the closed group they were reposted on the exante social media accounts, getting over 2,000 likes!!” 

What does a normal day on the exante 800 plan look like for you?

“In the morning I have a hot honey & lemon with 2 tablespoons of apple vinegar then I have my shake at 1.30PM, usually a Mocha Frappe Shake or Coconut Latte Shake. At about 5PM, I will have a bar and then at about 8.30PM I will have a soup between all that I will be working my 4 jobs and take my son to his sports clubs!”

How did you stay motivated on weeks you didn’t lose? 

Tasha says that its important to always stay motivated, even when your weight remains the same.  

“I’ve stayed the same weight before for three weeks, but the way I see it is you’ve not gained any weight so that’s better than putting 1 pound on.” 

Does you use any phone apps to help stay on track? 

“To track my weight loss I use the FitBit app and also My Weight Tracker”. 

How do you try and increase her water intake? 

“I find it easier to track my water intake by buying 500ml water bottles so I know I have to drink 4 bottles to have 2 litres, and 6 bottles to have 3 litres. Anymore than that is a bonus!
