This is going to be one of those long first post’s, but with time my intention is on a weekly/daily basis to update you guys on how it’s going
How did it start?
So a couple weeks back i discovered Huel through Facebook, had actually seen it a couple of times before but this time i actually went on their webpage and instantly thought the whole concept made sense for me.
Long story short, a couple of days later i placed an order of 2 bags (Vanilla & Original Vanilla) plus some flavour packs (chocolate & toffee) and got it 6 days ago (Tuesday 18th December) so this initial post will cover those days and how it has been going!
As alot of other people on this forum, my motivation for using Huel is to try to loose fat since i have been overweight my entire life. Now just to let you know i have already been on a fat loss journey starting back in Oct/Nov 2017 where i managed to go from 100kg to 90kg by New Years Eve 2018 through working out, mealprepping and counting calories. Throughout 2018 i basically maintained the weight of 90kg +/- 2-3 kgs even though my goal was to get even lower.
The goal besides loosing fat is basically to be healthier and be able to buy clothes that fit me without any issues or worries!
My Starting Point
Just to give you an idea of me:
Starting Weight: 89kg
How have the 6 days gone?
Starting Weight: 89.0kg
Todays Weight: 87.3kg (-1.7kg)
Based on the numbers above and how i look in the mirror i would say it has been going really well and the weight of 87.3 is acutally an all-time low for me (at least from what i can remember) yay! I am looking forward to see how it progresses in the next couple of weeks since it could easily have been water weight.
How do i use Huel and do i like drinking it?
Throughout the workweek i use Huel for breakfast (100 grams), eat a regular lunch at work and then have a Huel for dinner (125 grams). During the weekends the intention has been to use Huel for Breakfast and Lunch followed by a dinner out!
The crazy part is that i actually really enjoy drinking Huel, i like the oaty taste and that its not a completely smooth texture. The only thing is that oats have always filled me up super fast, so i can easily use 30-45 minutes drinking a shake of 100-125grams of Huel but it keeps me super full and during this weekend i actually only had one shake and a regular dinner per day.
Bonus info - my workout routine
Just to be transparent in regard to my workouts i usually train 4-5 times a week between Monday-Friday for about 1 hour and rest during the weekends.
- I wake up at 5:20-5:25am, weigh myself after going to the bathroom, then have a little bit of water
- At the gym by 5:50
- Warm-up with cardio for 10-15 minutes (usually 10 min elliptical machine and 5 min stair master)
- Strength Training for around 40-45 minutes (workout split is Chest/Triceps, Back/Biceps and
This means i train fasted and have my Breakfast Huel after getting home from the Gym just before leaving for work in the morning.
I’m excited and looking forward to updating you on my process!
