I’m looking to use Huel to help with some weight loss, but also to replace meals. Currently I don’t eat breakfast at all, bad I know and for lunch it will normally be a brown bread sandwich, perhaps a sausage roll too. I’m not really a snacker but I do work behind a desk all day and rarely have I been exercising until recently.
I was wondering what the opinion is on having the Granola for breakfast and then the Powder as much lunch replacement, then having a healthy meal on the evening which would likely be salad and some form of meat? I don’t think I could stomach the Powder in a morning and then again at lunch initially, i’m not saying that having two shakes a day wouldn’t be something to work up to later though.
Would you feel that taking this approach I should seen some weight loss but also at the same-time be getting enough foodd replacement in the day compared to what I was having before?
Yeah, that would work for sure…but obviously bear in mind you will only lose weight if you expend more calories than you consume; judging by your plan I should assume the calories would be less than 2500 per day
I plan on consuming around 1500-2000 calories a day, as will depend on what my evening meal will be. Potentially I will stick to the granola and powder combo, but I do have a feeling I may end up on two powders a day, either still having the granola or by replacing it.
Also have started to cycle for around 30 minutes to an hour a day, its not much but its a lot more than I have done in years, as I said stuck behind a desk for far to long - its time to get things sorted and get back to being healthy.
Thanks for the advice on the de-motivation, I have heard that water can really help with that and it seems like your’re saying the same thing. I do have a 700-750ml water bottle thing kicking about somewhere, probably best I dig that out then and keep with me at work.
So the granola, better than I expected. Not exactly the same consistency of granola I’m used to but not too different either.
First couple of mouthfuls I wasn’t sure on both the taste and the texture, but after a couple more I was enjoying it. Couldn’t taste the berry as much as I wanted but perhaps there wasn’t much in the serving I had.
All in all, yeah I liked it and definitely something I could eat daily for breakfast for sure. Well except my bacon and eggs on a Sunday morning of course… (Jokes)
Thanks for the tip on the peanut butter… I’ve decided to take the plunge and order these from Amazon. I will let you know how they are, went for the bigger size, but to only the small extra cost as if I like them it will be money well spent.
I’m planning to do the same too! Granola for breakfast, powder for lunch or dinner and maybe some bars as occasional snacks in days I need it. I too prefere the option of having something crunchy to eat after waking up.
I’ll definitely get some Granola in the next order, as soon as my tummy is on the Huel ship with me!
I like it, and might try the PB2 with chocolate next time. I don’t use it that often, purely because I’ve got a selection of things I add to change the flavour and I’m not having Huel everyday at the mo.
