Why did you decide to start exante?
“I was really suffering with ill health and depression because I was the heaviest I had ever been. I have always been ‘the overweight one’ since I was a kid. I was eating chocolate everyday and the bars got bigger and bigger. I was also working nights so to keep me awake during the night I was drinking 2 litres of Coca Cola a day- sometimes more.”
“I avoided the scales as I weighed myself and I had reached 25 stone. I was so ashamed and my health was not good. I was hospitalised twice and had pain in my knees and hips. I felt sluggish and sleepy all the time.”
“I was walking like I was 80!”
“My brother had started on exante. He was already in shape but carrying a few extra pounds and he managed to lose 3 stone. He said to me to try it, but I was very hesitant even though I knew I could not carry on how I was as there was only one place I was heading.”
How has exante impacted your life?
“I tried exante and thought I would never be able to stick to the diet, but in my first week I lost 9 pounds! That gave me the boost I needed and I have now been doing exante for 17 weeks. I have lost 4 stone and have noticed that my hips feel better. I can actually run a little now, I do a combat class and I’m feeling more alive.”
“I am feeling more alive. I have had my bad weeks and struggled to get back on target but I just remember how I was feeling before and that motivates me.”
What advice do you have for other people considering exante?
“I would advise anyone to give exante a go, by far the best diet I have ever done and I have tried them all! Slimming World, Weight Watchers, Cambridge Diet but exante has managed to change the way I think about food.”
