Back On It
Today is Exante Total Solution Diet Day One woo hoo! Now I will explain why: As a lot of you already know I’m in the process of becoming a weight loss coach. This year I will be taking on 5 clients which will be completely free for them. This is to give me experience but also to trial everything that I have learnt so I can fine tune it and iron out any wrinkles so to speak and get the paperwork together.
I already have two people signed up so there are three spaces left. You don’t have to live local because coaching can be done via email, skype etc. I also do Reiki so can do that as a distance healing session or 1-1 for people who are local which will also be included in the coaching if wished. If people just want Reiki I can just do that too.
Exante Total Solution Diet Day One
I still have a few pounds to lose myself before officially starting my new career. Because of this and because for some people I will be recommending the Exante Total Solution diet I am going to do it myself for a while. I have done it before for a few days but not properly. It is only right that I do it properly so that I can recommend it to people. Integrity is extremely important to me and I want people to know what to expect and how it will possibly make them feel.
Shakes It Is
Now I ate my last Exante meal replacement bar yesterday and I am not going to buy any more for a few weeks because I want to concentrate on the shakes just like we did while in The Fast Fix Clinic. I absolutely adored the pink shakes and have a box full of Cherries and Berries and Cherry Bakewell Frappe which are my favourites. Although the new limited edition sweet shop shakes are gorgeous too.
Savoury Exante Diet Meal Replacements
I’m not so keen on these although I do like the shepherd’s pie and spaghetti bolognese. I just like to add things to them like fresh or dried herbs, salt and pepper, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce etc. I really do like the lemon pancakes too which I cook in a waffle maker and then drizzle with MyProtein sugar-free butterscotch sauce which is delicious. The shepherd’s pie is a bit like flavoured instant potato yes I know that sounds gross but when you have been on shakes for a few weeks it is actually quite nice.
Exante offers one of the largest selections of high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet meal replacement shakes, bars, soups, desserts and complete meals, as well as a range of seasonal meal replacement products.

How Does The Low-Calorie Week Work?
During Low-Calorie Week, you can continue to consume 3 x 200 calorie Exante meal replacements per day, alongside at least 200+ kcal of conventional food per day. This could be a healthy low-carb meal from Exante recipes section or a snack from their Food Week List.
Alternatively, if you wish to abstain from conventional food for longer, then a milk allowance of 201 kcal is also suitable.
At the end of the week, either return to the Total Solution for further weight loss or, if you would like to maintain your weight, try one of Exante’s other diet plans or foods from their Balance Range.
Will It Derail My Diet?
The low-calorie week is specifically designed to support a healthy metabolism and your weight loss goals.
Consuming 800 calories per day will ensure you are still in a calorie deficit and allows you a break from a VLCD in a structured way, so you can stay on track.
Who Should Follow The Low-Calorie Week?
For those following Exante’s Total Solution Plan, I recommend you follow the Low-Calorie Week after 21 days of starting.
If you are following Exante’s Total Solution Plan, you should follow each of the 7 days of the Low-Calorie Week and then return to Total Solution if you wish to continue losing weight effectively with Exante.
If you are following their Flexi Solution, you can simply continue following the plan until you reach your goal.
Can I Skip The Low-Calorie Week?
Exante advises their customers to follow Low-Calorie Week if following their Total Solution diet plan.
In line with NICE guidelines, it is expected that when following the Total Solution Plan you take this week as an opportunity to reincorporate everyday healthy home-cooked meals into their diets.
Total Dietary Replacement plans should not be followed continuously for extended periods without medical advice.
Drink Enough Water
As you will have read making sure you drink enough water is crucial. I’m talking approximately 2.5 – 3 litres. You may find it easier to set your alarm to go off at intervals throughout the day to drink 500ml. This is what I do and it does help.
So for anyone who is starting today good luck, stay focused and you may find writing everything down a good way to help with this. I have produced a food diary with charts for all of your measurements etc. You can find this on Amazon along with my book It’s Not Rocket Science which was written after my time in the ITV documentary The Fast Fix Diabetes.
One More Important Thing
Before I disappear I just want to say it is really important that you take a before photo. I know you won’t enjoy doing it but you will be so glad you did take it I promise. When you get to goal you will love showing it people believe me. It also shows you accurately what you have achieved. I don’t know what it is with mirrors but they lie or the ones I look in do. The before photograph was taken on day 1 of The Fast Fix and when I saw it I was mortified because that wasn’t the person I saw in the mirror. In the mirror, I thought I was half that size. I seriously thought it had been photoshopped it looked like I had just eaten the sofa – I could have been the sofa!
Also, take your measurements on day one and then once a week every week after that; not only to compare to when you reach goal but you will have some weeks where you may not lose any weight, but you might lose inches this is what happened to me.
