I am 45F and also Training for the London Marathon. Not the real one in London, but the virtual one on October 3rd. I also supplement with light bodyweight training 2x per week.
I have a little weight to lose, just a few kilos, but I won’t worry about that until after the marathon, then I will switch back to weight training and sprints as my main exercise and it will soon come off.
I have been using Huel for a couple of years now and have settled into a bit of a routine. I also do not eat dairy due to intolerance and Huel is great for this.
This is my current routine:
Breakfast - 60g V3 Chocolate with 1 scoop Complete Protein or 90g Black Edition Salted Caramel made with half soya milk and half water. Really the choice comes down to what flavour I fancy.
Lunch - 1 serving Hot and Savoury (1 scoop Tomato and 1 scoop Madras is my favourite)
Dinner - Chicken Salad or Chicken and Rice type main meal.
Post Run - Fruit smoothie with half a banana, 100g frozen fruit, 60g soy yogurt, 1 scoop Complete Protein (Strawberry & Cream) and 300ml water.
Snacks - whatever I fancy if I need to bump up my calories for the day.
I hope this helps but happy to chat more if you like as we are on a similar path at the moment.
When doing lots of cardio (marathon training) carbs are your friend so I’d recommend v3.0 over Black Edition. Huel Complete Protein is great for helping you hit your protein goals with minimal calories so it’s best to look at the rest of your diet and see if you need it.
