Been reading all of these amazing posts all day and it has inspired me to try Huel, but I really need a little bit of help understanding portion sizes and routines.
A little about me first… I am an Associate Ambulance Practitioner who works 12 hour day/night shifts. I am 5ft 7 and weigh approx 157 pounds. I am hoping to lose a little bit of weight, increase my energy levels and to stop my naughty habit of snacking on sweets and crisps. The reason I am trying to lose a LITTLE weight is that we are trying for a baby (unsuccessful so far ) and my fertility doctor suggested to lose a little weight to lower my BMI to 19-23.
I have purchased the starter set with 2x Vanilla powders and have calculated my TDEE score, which suggest that to maintain I require 2,010 calories per day or 1,510 per day to lose weight.
To me 1,510 sounds quite low and I am worried about burning out and becoming tired, especially while on shift where it can be next to impossible to find food.
Also how would you split that throughout the day? I am planning on using Huel for breakfast and lunch as these are the meals I am generally worst at as I am working and I also will still need to cook dinner for the husband anyway. Do you have the same amount for breakfast and lunch? And how many calories do you leave over for dinner?
Apologies for all the questions and I hope that it all made sense! Thanks for looking.
