Sami suffers from Type 1 Diabetes and has struggled to lose weight due to her medication and having to monitor her low blood sugar levels in line with her carbohydrate consumption. However, since starting the exante 800 plan she has gone from 14st 4lbs, to 12st 7lbs! At 4ft 11”, this has taken her BMI from obese class 2, to obese class 1. Here she shares how exante has changed her life!
How old were you when you were diagnosed with diabetes?
Sami was first diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 1994 at the age of 8. According to the NHS, unlike Type 2 Diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes is not linked with age or weight (1). Sami admits however that she found it extremely difficult to lose weight with Type 1 Diabetes, until she found exante.
When did you start the exante diet?
In July 2020, Sami decided she wanted to lose weight and needed a simple solution that didn’t’ require much headspace due to her busy daily life. With 3 children, one of whom is severely disabled, Sami wanted a diet plan that was easy to manage. After struggling with other diet plans because of the complicated calorie and carb counting, she turned to exante.
Why does exante work for you?
“I like the exante 800 plan because it’s low carb and I don’t need to do loads of mathematical equations to work out my insulin dosage. My diabetes has never been better controlled”.
Sami has been able to adjust her diabetes medication since starting the exante diet, allowing her to control her condition whilst lowering her BMI.
“Whilst I’m stuck with my diabetes for life, it’s now so much easier to live with.”
