Hello! I’ve decided I’m going to experiment with a huel diet to help aid weight loss.
I currently weigh 16 stone (224 lbs), and I’m hoping to get back down to 160 lbs, though the more immediate goal is to be under 200lbs by autumn. I have already had some successful weight loss from exercise alone - I’m down from 244lbs since October, but I’m really struggling to stay disciplined with food and hoping the simplicity of huel will turn things around. Plus I tend to find it leaves me feeling a lot fuller than a salad!
I’m reasonably active. I work a desk job, but walk to and from work (just over 1 mile each way), I usually walk around 4-5 miles per day, and exercise 3-4 times a week (currently running 3 x week (#couchto5k) and swimming 1 x week).
I’m planning on subbing in 2 meals a day with huel and then eating 1 normal-ish meal.
This thread is basically just here to keep me accountable, but I’d be keen to hear other people’s experiences too!
Weight: 224 lbs
Breakfast: 2 scoops huel
Lunch: 3 Scoops huel
Dinner: Under 600 calorie meal
On the basis of my exercise levels to maintain my weight I’d need to consume around 2682 kcal per day, which means I could stand to loose 1 lb per week by cutting to 2100 kcal, but I’m going to attempt to keep my intake undr 1600 kcal and see how it goes!
