I am seeing a lot of people my size flocked to very low calorie diet shakes (VLCD) which provide around 600 calories a day and leave you feeling as miserable as death. Inevitably in my experience i end up cycling between binging and starving. I did lose 5 stone some time back following the Atkins diet, and although i felt good, it didn’t feel right eating nothing but meat, veg and fat for the long term and inevitably the weight came back fast when i stopped.
So, i’m really happy to come across Huel, as it allows me to accurately measure out a reasonable daily calorie intake, it tastes good, and is very filling and satisfying - something hard to come by when you are dieting!
I am trying to eat exclusively Huel but will occasionally eat low calorie meals when out with friends as i don’t want to stop socialising.
My beginning weight is 272lbs (123kg, or 19 stone 6lbs), i’m a female and only 5ft4 tall, so this weight is massively unhealthy for me and the heaviest i’ve ever been.
If there’s anyone else out there who has a lot of weight to lose and is using Huel, it’d be great to hear from you.
