Why did you start exante?
“In February 2017, my husband left me out of the blue after 12 years of marriage. A year later, my mum died. I began eating my feelings away and got bigger and bigger. The weight started impacting on my health- my back and knees were in constant pain and I had developed chronic heartburn.”
“I also saw a picture of myself after meeting up with some old friends and I was shocked at my size! An exante ad kept popping up on my Instagram feed so I looked into it. I researched it for about 2 weeks and on the 29 July 2019, I started the 5:2 plan and haven’t looked back!”

What changes have you noticed since starting exante?
“I’ve noticed that my eating habits have changed a lot. I’ve realised that as you get older your body doesn’t need as many calories as you think for energy. I also notice that I can listen to my body better now and I know when I’m full instead of eating to excess.”
