Exante Diet Products - Review

I was recently asked by Exante to review some of their products. They are a company known for meal replacement diet products to help with weight-loss and maintain it. I am not on a diet and I am not planning to diet but I do like to eat healthy to maintain my weight. When they contacted me they said they wanted to move away from the perception of them just being a diet brand and moving towards the wholesome foods/lifestyle market. Now this is something I am interested in because since losing weight 2 years ago I do my best to maintain my weight by eating healthy and eating in moderation.

The products they sent me were 3 meal replacement shakes which are protein shakes, a Chip Shop Chicken Curry with rice meal, a Cherry and Almond bar and a Chocolate Mint flavour cookie.


I wasn't going to be using these as a part of a diet I was going to be using them over a few weeks to fit in with my busy lifestyle and half marathon training.

The meal replacement protein shakes I used after my runs or work-outs at the gym. The flavours I was sent to try were Honeycomb, Irish Cream and a mystery shake. These were all to be made with 200ml of cold water and were very much like a milk shake without the milk. I have never used shakes like these before but I was pleasantly surprised and they tasted ok. They worked great as an after exercise drink but I don't think if I was using them as a meal replacement they would fill me up. And because of their distinctive taste I would find it hard to stick to having them everyday.



The Chip Shop Chicken Curry I had one night as my tea when my husband was out and it was just me I had to cook for as the boys had already had their tea. It smelt just like a curry and it tasted like one too. I really liked this and you wouldn't have realised it was a diet meal.



I had the Chocolate Mint cookie as a snack one day and it had a very distinctive taste and didn't have the texture of a cookie. It had a really strong after taste of mint and I could still taste it a while after I had eaten it. But as far as a diet snack goes it was ok.



This was also what I did with the Cherry and Almond bar. I put it in my handbag for when I got peckish. It was covered in chocolate and unfortunately I didn't really like it, it had a very heavy consistency and was very hard to eat.




As far as diet products go these were great and I think if I was following the diet plan that I may have enjoyed them a little more.

  2. On a final note, for Type 2 diabetics, since being overweight is a risk factor for developing diabetes and the BIGGEST Loser diet has an excellent track record for assisting people to lose weight it is my recommendation here that dietary standards of the DASH diet be coupled with the exercise regimen of the Biggest loser diet. guarantor
