When Exante Diet first contacted me about testing some of their range a couple of weeks ago, I was slightly sceptical. I’m not really one for diets and wasn’t looking to drop a few pounds in time for the summer. After a further look into the product, I could see that not only can Exante Diet help you lose weight but also help you manage it. With so many fad diets around, it’s easy to become obsessed with your weight, and 9 times out of 10 whatever weight you lose you will gain back twice as fast once you stop.
Whilst I’m not necessarily looking to lose weight, Exante Diet can help manage your ideal weight through it’s range of different plans and selection of nutritionally balanced pre-prepared meals and snacks delivered to your door.
Exante Diet offer a huge range of meal-replacement products including prepared meals, soups, shakes, bars and more. Unlike typical low calorie diets, Exante Diet puts an emphasis on weight control and management offering a wide range of high-protein low-carb options to fit nicely alongside a healthy lifestyle. Having recently introduced a new wholesome range of pancakes, granola, crisps and even a chip shop chicken curry, your everyday favourites have just been given the Exante treatment allowing you to have a little bit of what you fancy without the associated guilt.
With a number of plans to choose from, there’s something for everyone. The Man Plan is designed especially for men or for those with a higher metabolism. The idea itself is really simple; once you have selected the correct plan, you simply login and choose which products you want online and they get delivered to your door.
With every product expertly portioned and packed with over 22 vitamins and minerals, I was eager to give them a try for myself to see if they are actually as good as they sound. So what did I think? :
Exante Diet Mushroom Pasta
Firstly, I love carbs, so anything pasta based is already a win. This microwavable pasta meal is made with wholewheat pasta, button mushrooms and chicken-style pieces for that extra boost of protein. The sauce is creamy and makes for a nice quick meal. Served with a side salad this makes a decent sized evening meal. [4/5]
Exante Diet Protein Porridge
I’m already a huge fan of porridge so I was looking forward to swapping my usual oats for the Protein Porridge from Exante. Unfortunately it didn’t match my expectations. I found it quite watery, where as I prefer it to be more smooth and creamy. Maybe I made it wrong or maybe it’s a bit of trial and error on this one. Either way I added a handful of berries as per the serving suggestion on the back and ate it. [2/5]
Exact Diet Chocolate Orange / Toffee Nut & Raisin Bar
Cereal bars are a great idea for when you don’t have enough time to prepare a meal. The Meal Replacement bars from Exante come in a variety of flavours and are great for when you are on the go. With the right amount of sweetness and soy protein goodness these are just as good (or even better) then many shop bought alternatives. I could definitely see myself keeping a a few in the car with me, especially the Chocolate Orange ones! [5/5]
Exante Diet Protein Chips Salt & Vinegar
A packet of chips/crisps that count as part of your plan? yes you heard right. These protein chips were one of my favourite items I sampled. The size of the bag is over generous and the seasoning is just right. They have a light, crispy texture to them and are perfect for an afternoon snack. [5/5]
Exante Diet Strawberry Jam & Yoghurt Crunch Bar / Double Chocolate Chip Cookie
I was excited to try both of these as they sounded so good. Part of the Deliciously Different range, the Strawberry Jam & Yoghurt Crunch bar is another great alternative to the typical cereal bar. High in protein, fibre and full of vitamins and minerals, the bar has all the goodness you need to get your day off to a good start without all the sugar. [4/5]
These were only a selection of the samples I received. If you want my opinion on any of the other items I was sent, please leave me a comment down below.
