I was wondering how much weight u fellow vlcd people have lost in the space of 10 weeks. I am planning to attend a friends wedding in 10 weeks and am attempting to loose weight. I am abit 5 stone overweight so i am desperate to loose some weight using exante till the wedding.
Looking forward to hearing your success stories.

I’ve lost 2st in 10 weeks doing the Cambridge plan (800 calories per day).

Wow! I could have written this today! Been googling vlcd with time scale of 10 weeks due to an event.
I'm looking at exante too.
I'm hoping there will be some more responses in due course to give an idea as to what is feasible.

NoCanoe Tue 10-Apr-18 21:47:52

Feasible in terms of weight loss expectations, I meant.

I’m starting slim and save today. Have nearly 5 stone to lose. They normally say you lose a stone a month but I think if you’re bigger you’d probably lose more.

Looks like a Friday start for me!

Ha!! Was just reviewing my start date! Mine's tomorrow now too as unexpected meal tonight.
To be fair, I'd not told DH my intentions so he wasn't to know.
I suppose I really should tell him....just wanted to avoid his eye rolling.

minimalist99 Fri 13-Apr-18 15:13:56

Hahahhaa i keep telling my DH I am going to start and end up miserably failing but I am adamant on actually starting this time as I am feeling really insecure about myself and I am hoping I will be able to feel a little bit better just by loosing weight and then adopting a healthier lifestyle.

@Minimalist - that's how I feel too. I've kept putting it off - despite expanding as if I was being fed miracle-gro! hmm

But I will start tomorrow and I'd better declare my plan. I've never been so fat in my life and it's been a bit of a shock to suddenly realise how much has crept on. Invasion of the fat cells!

@KateGrey, how you doing?

NoCanoe Sat 14-Apr-18 14:05:11

@JulieCloud, any tips from your own experience?

minimalist99 Sat 14-Apr-18 14:44:58

I've got 2 stone to lose so I'm going to do exante for 2/3 months and then go on a healthy eating plan - just want to get it done. Quite enjoying the shakes/meals so far, seems too easy!

NoCanoe Sat 14-Apr-18 18:20:03

Im trying to start today! But I've met opposition from DH who doesnt want to eat alone.

We still in disagreement about it so I've ended up with nothing all day just to ensure I have calories spare for dinner tonight!

Hes suggesting I start Monday so we both have 5 days to get used to it before next weekend.

I should have told him sooner......blush

NoCanoe Sat 14-Apr-18 18:21:55

@cardoon - how many calories are you having per day?

cardoon Sat 14-Apr-18 18:27:48

600/800 - some days 600 seems enough, if not I have 800 and don't beat myself up!

minimalist99 Sun 15-Apr-18 11:07:11

Cardoon u sound like u are doing well!!!

No canoe i have decided to start tomorrow too. I want to loose at least 2 stone before my birthday in august

I did New You and lost 3.5 stone in 12 weeks with most of that in the first 8-9 weeks. Even better I kept most of it off within half a stone give or take for years.

cardoon Sun 15-Apr-18 12:37:20

It's a bit of a revelation for me this type of diet - no decisions about how much to eat grin
Just had apple and cinnamon porridge, quite nice and comforting

minimalist99 Sun 15-Apr-18 19:32:38

Cardoon when did u start???

I started exante yesterday, couldn’t manage 3 x shakes, I had 2 and then made a 250 calorie dinner which is what I’m going to stick to, I’m also allowing 50 calories 100ml milk in my tea so 700 cals per day.
I am hungry but coping ok.

cardoon Sun 15-Apr-18 21:10:39

2 weeks ago - have lost 7lbs, 5 first week 2 second

I think that sounds like a fine plan EC22, I tend to use the savoury options of exante as 2 of my meals and also have a little milk in tea and coffee

minimalist99 Sun 15-Apr-18 23:43:41

Argh I am going to start tomorrow i have 5 stones to loose to get to pre pregnancy weight hoping the first 3 stones come off relatively easily.
