I’ve been on ‘Mission Beach Body’ for 2 months and it’s going pretty well! I’ve actually lost 1 stone, can you believe it? My main downfall is that I’m a lazy dieter. I like cooking, but don’t want to spend every evening cooking up a healthy meal when I can be doing something else.

Exante Diet are a godsend in this situation. I was lucky enough to be sent a selection of food and snacks from Exante to aid with my weight loss. You could also use their projects as weight-management. Exante Diet offer total meal-replacement plans that fit with your goals. It’s a flexible programme, so you can choose how you want to tackle it and tailor your approach.

I’m in the process of losing weight and kicking my body into shape and it’s going well. Exante’s diet programme has made this so much easier. All meals are healthy and portion-controlled, plus they’re packed with vitamins and minerals. I’m a vegetarian so was delighted when I discovered the large selection of vegetarian options Exante have to offer. Interested in knowing my thoughts? Read on!

Vegetable Curry

I’m starting with this because it was by far my favourite. To be honest, all of the main meals really impressed me. This curry is mild, creamy and full of vegetables and chicken-style soya pieces. It doesn’t come with any rice or heavy carbs so I was expecting to feel hungry after it. Surprisingly, I wasn’t! It hit the spot and kept me ticking over until dinner.


Chocolate Orange Meal Replacement Bar

This chocolate orange bar is defintiely comparable to any other snack bar i’ve tried. The flavours come through nicely and it has a clean taste. It’s crunchy, gooey and filling. I could imagine keeping some of these on my desk at work to grab as a mid-morning snack. I wasn’t too fond of the aftertaste, but that went in a couple of minutes. 


Banana Shake

This was the biggest surprise of the bunch. I was expecting it to taste powdery and weak. Oh, how I was wrong! The banana flavour is subtle, but it definitely reminded me of a banana milkshake. The viscosity was great and the flavour was great. It come together quickly, so I find these work really well as a breakfast replacement. 


Gooey Chocolate Pudding

My inner fat man couldn’t wait to try this. I constantly crave sweet treats when i’m dieting so had high expectations for this. It was ooey and gooey, but I wished the chocolate flavour was richer. Can’t have it all though? It definitely filled a void that chocolate would normally fill, so overall i’m happy.


Thai Green Curry Pot

Once again, massively impressed with this. The curry itself has the right amount of spice and a hint of coconut. As this comes with rice, it feels a lot richer and filling that some of the other meals. I’ll definitely be keeping some of these in my cupboard for those lazy nights when I just want to grab something quick. Winner!


If you’re looking to lose weight or manage it, Exante should definitely be a consideration! You can actually buy all your food in a pack and take the thought out of dieting, how great is that? Prices vary as you can pick your choices or have it come preselected, but they’re all really reasonable. All in all, I’ve been really impressed with Exante, primarily the main meals. I liked all of the ones I tried and would buy them again.

The above is a small selection of what i’ve tried, so if you want to know my thoughts on any of the other products, leave me a comment and i’ll get back to you.
