The Smart Swaps To Keep Your Nutrition On Track

If you think you’d feel healthier and more confident by losing a few pounds, exante is the health brand that can help you through the process, especially with the festive season round the corner. Exante's range of healthy meals and snacks have been formulated by nutritionists and could give you a helping hand when it comes to dealing with festive overindulgence and keeping your nutrition on track. Here’s what you need to know about exante and the smart swaps to make...



It’s Approved By GPs & Dieticians

Offering shakes, snacks and meals, exante is the name to know when it comes to low-calorie swaps. Unlike so many alternatives, all exante meals are high in fibre and protein, and contain 27 vitamins and minerals per serving, meaning there’s no need to worry about falling short on your health goals when cutting back on calories. Since launching in 2010, exante has been helping people around the world reach their goals. With the latest research showing 64% of the UK population is overweight – with around 24% of us classified as obese – there’s no time like the present to take control of your health. Plus, with the festive season around the corner, cutting back on calories in certain areas will mean you can still indulge in the treats you want without throwing your nutrition off plan. 

The Hard Work's Done For You

When it comes to weight loss, many of us struggle to know where to start, but exante streamlines the process. Its impressive range of shakes, snacks and meals has something for everyone, and at around 200 calories per serving, you can make savvy swaps and develop habits that are sustainable for the long-term rather than just depriving yourself. Plus, simple swaps have a multiplier effect. Swap one or two meals a day for exante's products and you'll be cutting calories without realising, making room for other treats and losing pounds in the process. If you're looking to commit, its best-selling four-week diet box is a good place to start. You can even set this up as a subscription, meaning your meals will be sent straight to your doorstep every month, with no need to reorder. Here are some of the exante swaps we rate...

The Method Is Backed By Science

The secret behind any successful weight loss plan is a calorie deficit, and that’s exactly what exante promises – on one of its plans, you’ll consume fewer calories than you burn. Plus, exante allows you to be flexible with your day. Have one of its meals for breakfast and lunch, for example, then enjoy a healthy meal with your family in the evening. 

There’s Something For Everyone

Whether you’re looking to substitute one, two or three meals per day, the exante range has something for every moment of the day. Start your morning with a one-pot cinnamon porridge or maple syrup pancakes, then reach for soups and pot meals for lunch. Chocolate, strawberry and vanilla shakes can fill hunger gaps, as can meal replacement bars. Exante also recently launched Juiced, a world-first juice meal replacement made with clear whey protein and real fruit juices. Every exante product – whether a porridge bowl or smoothie – contains 200-250 calories as well as impressive amounts of vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Vegans Are Covered, Too

Exante has plenty of plant-based options, including vegan and gluten-free meal replacement shakes. Each shake in the vegan range contains 21g of plant-based protein with fewer than 220 calories per serving as well as real ingredients such as coffee powder, cocoa powder and real fruit extracts.
