Hi there, nice to meet you all! I’m Szura.
I’m very new to Huel, my first shakes are chilling in the fridge, waiting for tomorrow. I’m creating this thread for accountability and to document my Huel journey. I want to include quick CW for eating disorder before I’ll start.
So in the past I was binging and purging due to body dysmorphia which now is mostly gone, but I still struggle to rebuild a healthy relationship with food (I’m 28 and my problems started when I was 13). I’m 100% purge free (yay!), but I still have mini-binges and tend to restrict myself. I can’t stop subconsciously treating food as punish/reward when my mood is low.
I would like to loose some weight, but in a healthy way, and I just worry that my tendencies will get in the way. I’m also worried that at the moment I’m not getting all nutrients that I need. But my number one goal is to stop binging completely, as I believe it is my main trigger for restricting (and then cycle repeats). And I hope Huel can help me with that!
It’s easy, super fast, nutritious and not stressful or triggering at all, and it can help me manage my calorie intake in a super easy way. And most importantly, it’s vegan as well!
I’ve already lost some weight, from approx 63 kg to 57.5. I don’t have any goal as I also want to gain some muscles at some point. I only know I don’t want to go below 50kg as with my history it may not end up well. I was thinking about 53kg, but all in all it’s just a number! I’ll be measuring myself as well and I’ll check by body fat percentage (I must admit I’m really scared to do it lol).
Sorry for such a long post! Greeting from Poland!
