I’ve taken the first step and started using Huel for my breakfast and lunch from today. I decided to try Huel to ensure I was getting a balanced diet around work, to try and stop snacking and generally be healthier as I was often eating junk food or quick and convenient foods. I am also looking to lose some weight that has been put on over lockdown! I am really excited to make this a part of my lifestyle and be healthier in many ways.
Today is the first day… Due to a sedentary desk job I have worked out my TDEE as around 1850 calories although may be slightly more due to walking the dog, so I aiming to consume 1500-1600 calories a day. My plan is to have Huel for breakfast and lunch, each at 400Kcal, leaving around 700-800Kcal for dinner and snacks. The problem is… it is only the first day, just after lunch, and I’m still starving!!
My question is, will my body just get used to this? Or is there any way to make it more filling without adding too many calories? What have people found works?
