You mentioned earlier about your increased fitness, being active 3 times a week. Muscle mass burns significantly more calories that fat mass (although I have just spent 30 mins trying to find a ref. for this and failed, so lets take this with a pinch of salt for now).
Anyway, if my theory (I’m certain it isn’t a theory but can’t back it up) is correct you are losing fat and therefore losing weight but also exercising, so you are probably also gaining muscle mass. Thereby increasing your body’s need for calories -> increased hunger and chomping down more Huel.
My gut feeling is this is a great thing and the product of hard work and dedication. Keep it up!
I’m 12 days into this little experiment. I was hoping to go 100%, however I found I was craving real food, nothing special, just real food. So I’ve starting having a lunch or dinner now. The amount of Huel I have per day really fluctuates, and I should probably get into a routine, at least I’ll be able to monitor it better.
I started off at 119kg, and I’m now down to 115.4. So I’m fairly happy with that 3.6km loss. I also feel great, and it doesn’t feel like I’m starving myself. I’m feeling fitter and healthier already.
I’m really excited to see what happens over a longer period of time. What I love most is that so far I’ve not had to force myself, and drinking Huel really gets me thinking about whats good/bad for me, as I wasn’t before despite wanting to diet for a long time.
Keep up the updates guys, It’s really inspiring and motivating to hear about your successes!!
Hello. So glad to have found huel. I’m 38 F and 5ft7. I was 12st4. I started huel 4weeks ago. I work Fri, Sat and Sunday nights and used to graze continuously bouncing from sugar high to sugar high to keep myself awake. I eat about 1300 -1500 cals per day with family Mon-Thurs and 100% huel on weekends. Makes work so much easier. Today I weighed 11st3. So chuffed. Want to get to about 10st4 so half way there.
Hi, I’m 48, 5’5" and I would just love to get down to 10st. The last time I was the slim was 15 years ago. I think 10st 7 would not be too low depending on your gender - might be a bit low for a man but for a woman it would be great.
