Hey! So I have been considering meal replacements on and off for years but have never taken the leap. I’m morbidly obese at around 25 stone which I reached gradually over the years due to a combination of a lack of exercise, poor mental health, bad nutritional behaviour and other health issues. It’s easy to tell me to eat healthy and move my ass but I really hate exercise (especially due to pain, sweating and self consciousness) and my mental health took a dive this year. However my weight and my mental health are a vicious cycle that I need to break as they just feed into each other and I cannot take it anymore. I am in a slightly better mentally, so I want to try and make a start on my weight.
I struggle with food in terms of eating properly and healthily because I often have issues with energy levels so I simply can’t be bothered to cook, or even eat. This usually results in me either not eating or eating junk - either random food or takeaway. I am vegetarian and lactose intolerant. I have low vitamin D and B12. I also think I might be intolerant to gluten. I’m trying to work out what Huel powder would be better for me. Gluten-Free v3.0 or Black Edition. My understanding is that the Black Edition has no oats due to having less carbs and has more protein, and Gluten-Free v3.0 has oats, but are gluten free ones.
My current idea is to have one Huel drink, one Huel Hot & Savoury meal and one normal meal a day. I might not do this every day, maybe every 2 or 3 days, depends on how I feel. For me, just having Huel available would be so that I can make a meal drink that contains the things my body needs when I’m having an off day and don’t feel like eating. It’s a bonus if it helps with my weight loss journey.
What advice do people have?
