My desire is to basically beat the system of the chronic eater.
I eat when I’m hungry. I eat when I’m bored. I eat when I’m sad….and so on, and so on. Food has always been a great crutch and comfort. When I quit smoking last year, I ate more. When I gave up pretty much all drinking, I ate more. This has compounded the issues from COVID over the last year. My workout routine is poor since they closed the gym on the base where I work. There is no gym close to my house. I have a membership but I spend the better part of an hour just doing back and forth. Blah blah blah.
I’m 6’3” and 278 pounds. I’m big but carry it pretty well. More likely, I hide it well. I really do. The way I walk, carry myself, suck in the gut, etc…but I can’t hide it from myself. Blood pressure up, energy down. Not great signs for a recently retired 30yr military man now over 50. I need a change. I have three bags of Huel and will be going full Huel for a couple of weeks, and maybe keep up one to two meals a day after that for a month. I will add a bit of fruit to each shake. Bananas, strawberries, or blueberries. Maybe some mango. About a half cup total, not much more.
I intend to use my distanced gym three+ days a week. Need at least 30 mins cardio, a machine or three, and my aqua massage chair. Going to track my journey. Wish me luck.
Will stay open to beverages- water, coffee reg then decaf; stevia drink packs; tea…mostly water.
