One of the most common questions we get asked is ‘can I exercise while on an Exante Diet Plan?’ – we have created this blog to answer this question for you!
The short answer is ‘it depends’ – there are four Exante diet plans, and each of these allow for different levels of exercise. Below, we will look at the level of exercise that we recommend for each plan and give you some suggestions on ways to work-out!
Total Meal Replacement Plans
Total Solution & the 800 Calorie Diet Plan
Our Total Solution (600 Calorie Diet Plan) and 800 Calorie Diet Plans involve significantly reducing your calorie intake by replacing your meals with our nutritionally complete meal replacement products.
Due to the calorie-restrictive nature of these total meal replacement diet plans, we do not advise that you undertake strenuous exercise while on an Exante Total Solution or the 800 Calorie Diet Plan. We also suggest that, if you do undertake heavy exercise at any time on these plans, you consume the calories back that you have burnt off.
However – the good news is that you can do up to 20 minutes of light exercise a day while on both of these total meal replacement plans! Including some light walking into your day – such as walking to work instead of driving – is great for both your heart and your mind!
Our Flexi Plan is a more flexible, calorie-restricted diet plan in which you consume 1200 calories a day from two Exante meal replacement products, a low-carb meal and a healthy snack!
As this plan is less restrictive on calorie intake, you can undertake exercise while on an Exante Flexi plan! However, as your caloric intake is still significantly reduced, remember that over-exercising could be harmful for your body.

5:2 Diet Plan
Our 5:2 Diet Plan is an intermittent fasting plan, which usually involves two non-consecutive days of ‘fasting’ (in which you consume 3 Exante meal replacement products) and five days of ‘normal’ healthy eating a week. Click here to find out more about this diet plan.
During ‘normal’ healthy eating days on this diet, you can undertake exercise as usual! On fasted days, the restricted exercise advice given for our total meal replacement plans apply. This plan is great for those that enjoy exercising and want to continue to include regular physical activity into their diet plan.
