I’ve been in a rut for awhile now, not happy with my weight, it being the highest it’s ever been. I’ve always been active (running/treadmill, walking), but not so much recently. Food has always been my down fall to fitness. One day last weekend my husband came home and said he saw a friend drinking Huel, that he’d lost a load of weight and felt great. Knowing I was struggling with my weight he suggested that perhaps I should try it! So I did some research and ordered 4 bags (vanilla, new vanilla, berry and coffee) using the Refer a Friend discount. Unfortunately there was the week delay, but that gave me time to say farewell to all my bad eating habits and mentally prepare for Huel. I do best on a all or nothing approach and frankly I am getting tired of crappy food (well not too too crappy, but not the best).
This morning I was excited that the DPD guy delivered my Huel at 11:56 (delivery time estimated between 11:54 and 12:54! Excellent service and great communication from Huel!
Here are my stats (using the Salter Body analyser scale) and my plan. (I’m the kind of person that need to be accountable, hence putting it on here for the world to see!)
Body Fat: 47%
Muscle Mass: 27.6%
Body Water: 40.8%
- 100 gm of Huel 3 times a day to equal 1200 calories, more if feeling hungry after extra workout.
- 2 litres of water a day (on top of Huel water)
- use My Fitness Pal to log everything (Fitbit is linked to the account)
- Gym - 3 times a week, treadmill and/or circuit class.
- 10000 steps a day. Recovering from plantar fasciitis so running will be in accordance to pain level.
- Weight myself every morning (I need to be accountable.)
Goal: Get to 70kg by Christmas as have a holiday in the Lakes involving loads of walks with husband and the dogs.
Ultimate goal: Weight 62kg, increased fitness and wear all the clothes that don’t fit me anymore (yeah, a whole new wardrobe!)
Had coffee flavour as my breakfast (at 11:15) and it was nice, it’s now 1pm and I’m actually kind of hungry, so will have some water. I finished it in about 10 min. Maybe a bit more watery because I used only 100gm. I will ease into it over this week over 3-5 days depending on how I feel.
Will update here on Monday mornings after the weigh-in!
Wish me luck kind peoples of Huel.
