New here, and (full disclosure) the first bags of Huel haven’t even arrived yet. But I’m excited.
It’s taken me a long time to face up to it, but I’m fairly convinced that a routinized and fairly unconscious relationship to consuming sweets is wreaking havoc on my body. Not in obvious ways (blood sugar within normal limits, not diabetic or pre-diabetic, not overweight but gaining a bit lately as my metabolism slows). I’m hoping Huel and increased exercise will be steps in the right direction. I’m starting with replacing one meal daily (probably breakfast for practical reasons) until my first supply of Huel is gone, and re-evaluating whether to replace additional meals with it. I’m not scared of the taste, as other health mixes (whey protein powders for example) don’t bother me.
Looking forward to the experience and will try to document it here. As for desired results, I’m hoping for (a) reduced sugar cravings in the first month and (b) mild to moderate weight loss in the first 2-3 months, accompanied with better/more natural and more consistent energy levels.
Thanks to all on the forum for providing this outlet.
