Over the past year I’ve put on a over a stone and weighing in at 16st 12lb. Being 6’ 5" mean I carry it fairly well but according to my BMI idea weight need to be 15st 2lb. Working harder than I’ve done through lockdown has also left me with lack of motivation and loss of mojo! I think it stops here!!!
Most Januarys I get back into the swing of things as get out on my bike and get near to the 16st stone mark, however although relatively fit, carrying the kilos and going cycling with mates means I always struggle disproportionately on the hills.
In the past 10 weeks I’ve been laid up with a bad back for 4 weeks and more recently broke my toe meaning I’ve been unable to do the exercise to get anywhere near bike fit.
As such, I’ve decided to kick start by losing weight and significantly cut my calorie intake to 1200 per day (for starters) and go with Huel 3 times a day. After going with it twice a day a couple of years ago, I must say now it is much easier with the Hot and Savoury range. I’m aiming to shed a stone in 2-3 weeks - probably not text book but given max guideance is usually cut 1000 cal a day to lose 2lb of fat a week. I’m also going to keep an eye on muscle mass to ensure I dont start wasting muscle.
2 days in an already lost 4lb, 2lb each day on accurate scales - again, I know you shouldnt weigh yourself every day.
Any thought, advice, support welcome - I’ll keep you posted. Biggest hurdle will be swerving the weekend beers, however given lockdown, there has never been a better time to do it!
