I recently joined the forum as it is such an awesome community of Huelers like myself. I decided to make a fairly steep nutritional lifestyle change to not only cut fat but become more healthy all around. I see some of the posts within this forum and I am completely amazed at some of the journeys shared which got me motivated to continue and share mine.
Now for some context, I am a 25 year old male, 6 ft 1’ who used to binge on fast food multiple times a day taking in well over 4,000 calories a day! I know… it was bad. My girlfriend and I decided to both diet together and watch what we eat a little over 2 weeks ago. She is now a hueler but I will get to that later.
I embarked on this journey weighing in at 255lbs striving for my goal weight of 195-200lbs. I decided to hop in head first, dropping all my old eating habits. I decided to shoot for 4 shakes a day with 2 scoops in each coming in at 1,600 calories a day. Day one was super easy besides acquiring the taste, don’t worry if you are on your first week it gets sooo much better! Day two I cut it down to 3 shakes coming in at 1,200 calories because surprisingly I wasn’t hungry at all after day one. I have continued one the 3 shakes a day for the last 14 days, along with a bunch of water!
Here are the results, I am fairly active and enjoy playing softball 5 nights a week usually playing 7-10 games. I went from 255 to 242 week one and then from 242 to 234 week two. I stick to a pretty strict regimen consuming huel at 12pm, 5pm, then at 8/9pm daily. Over 20lbs lost and this only the beginning. I do not plan on consuming any regular food for at least another month due to friend and family events like weddings which will ultimately cause me to eat “normal food”. I found that documenting starting and end weights on the finished huel bag has really kept me dialed in and focused while I continue to just consume Huel. Cravings do come, but not nearly as much as they did in week one.
I am beyond happy with the results so far. My girlfriend has had a really hard time sticking to her conventional diet which is why she decided to hop on to the huel life! I hope she enjoys it as much as I have since she is just starting tomorrow.
Huel has truly changed my life and I look forward to seeing everyones journey on here as well! Before and after pics to come towards the end of the year hopefully near my goal weight!
