It’s That Time Again
Here we go again; that time of year where we tell ourselves this time I’ll stick to it. If you don’t know what I’m talking about it’s the dreaded New Year’s resolution diet! We all do it…. we have all been there and yes I’m saying it again too. You will find my exclusive Exante discount code at the bottom of this blog post.
My Reason For This New Year’s Resolution Diet
It’s not really for blood sugar for me but it always helps that but it’s about some other health problems I have which I will be writing about in more detail soon. I’m currently undergoing lots of tests because of Barret’s Oesophagus which is a pre-cancerous condition.
My Reason For Losing Weight
At the moment I have Level D oesophagitis, a hiatus hernia, gastritis and Barret’s Oesophagus and am on high strength PPI’s. Weight loss and diet will help to some degree so to lose some weight at the same time will be great. For this, I am going to be using Exante products again as I trust in them 100% and I know they are great products and they work. I will also be using them for at least 12 weeks so if you want to accompany me on this journey please do.
Because of this, I am getting all my products together so I can start on 1st January with no excuses. This time I have new products to try and also to review for you guys. So let us look at some of Exante’s new products that will be included in my diet.
New Year’s Resolution Diet
From 1st January 2022, my diet will consist of 4 Exante meal replacements a day; broken down as below:
Exante Meal Replacement Bars – These I will be having for breakfast. TIP – What I tend to do is cut them in half and have one half with a cup of black tea for breakfast and the other half mid-morning. My favourites are the lemon yoghurt, strawberry jam, chocolate and orange, and the toffee nut.
Exante Meal Replacement Shakes – These I have at lunchtime/midday. I tend to stick to Cherries and Berries, Almond, or Vanilla. Sometimes I will also have a shake for my evening meal too. TIP – When making the shakes please make sure you use very cold water from the fridge they taste so much better for it. Also, don’t make them up in advance they have to be drunk as soon as you have made them taste the best.
Exante Meal Replacement Meals – This is my hot meal of the day and I tend to go for the spaghetti bolognese pots and the shepherd’s pie, apple crumble. TIP – With the bolognese, I add dried oregano and a splash of tabasco. Add any herbs you like. With the shepherd’s pie, I add a dash of Worcestershire sauce and pepper.
I have talked about the above products already as you know. However, this time I will be adding the following to my diet too.
Exante Burst – This is a fruity and refreshing low-calorie multivitamin energy drink with added collagen, caffeine and green tea extract. Available in three flavours: Strawberry Lime, Tropical and Mixed Berry.
Exante Slender Sip – This is a Cherry drink containing glucomannan which contributes to weight loss. Once consumed, glucomannan aids weight loss by absorbing water and gently expanding in your stomach.
The 7-day pack provides you with 21 sachets, each containing real cherry juice and 1g of glucomannan. Glucomannan is recognised and approved by the EU Commission to contribute to weight loss. It is a water-soluble dietary fibre that expands in your stomach. It is advised to take SlenderSip before a meal on a calorie-restricted diet, 3 times a day.
Exante Juiced -Juiced is a new product for Exante. It comes in a tub that contains 10 servings. It is the worlds first juicy meal replacement shake collection. The flavour I am using is dark cherry which is made with real cherry juices this fruity shake is made with the revolutionary clear whey protein to create the ultimate juicy refresher! Packed with 27 vitamins and minerals. It is perfect for when you are craving that fruity fix. Shake with 500 ml of cold water for the perfect juicy drink at only 202 calories. Juiced also comes in Peach and Mango, Grapefruit, and Apple and Pear.
Exante Snack Shots -These are the perfect low-calorie taste sensation for busy lifestyles! Pick between Sweet Chilli & Honey, Dark Chocolate & Cranberry and Buffalo Chickpea & Pumpkin Mix. Each box is split into 12 individual packets making them the most convenient solution to healthy eating on the go.
I will go through all of the newer Exante products and flavours in the coming weeks; which there are a lot of.
You have 12 days left to get yourself organised. What I will be doing is going through my cupboards and taking out anything I will be tempted by and will give away to family.
Get your measuring tape out and the day before you start take all of your measurements including your weight. This is so important as you have some weeks where you just lose inches and not pounds. It also acts as a pick me up when you feel like giving it all in (which you will) just take a look at how far you have come.
Not only do you need to take measurements you also need to take a photo, from the front, from the side and from the back. I know this is going to be a really hard thing to do but I promise you that you will thank me for it in 12 weeks time. At the end of 12 weeks if you would like to share your before and after photos with me for the blog please do.
Why not buy yourself a really nice large glass to have your shakes from, or your burst etc. Make it a bit more special; it does help. As does having sparkling water in a nice glass with a slice of lemon, spring of mint and ice etc.
Get yourself some things to take up your time at your worst times. For me, it is at night time so I tend to paint, knit something, or draw. I have done embroidery in the past, made bags, used adult colouring books. Find something you will enjoy that will keep your fingers busy. I will have other tips to share with you soon.
Most importantly buy your products as soon as possible because I can guarantee if you leave it another week all the best products will be gone as people will panic buy ready for New Year. I have mine already now. Create a space for you to keep them organised. You can also use my money off code TRACEY35 which will let you have a 35% discount.
I have a lot going on right now and also a lot more to come so will be writing a lot more moving forward. As usual, if you have any questions or if there is something you would like me to write about in the coming months please just message me and I will get back to you. Hopefully, I will be posting Monday’s and Friday’s.
