As promised, I’ve hit a full 2 months on diet of Huel, and I’ve gotten my lab results back! I’m really happy with the overall results I’ve gotten over the last 2 months, and I plan on continuing with the Huel. Here are my updated labs:

Start -> 2 Months

36 yr old male, 5 ft. 9 in.
BP 127/72, Pulse 51 -> 123/74, Pulse 51
207.2 lb -> 196.2 lb
19% BF -> 13.2% BF
BMR ~2036 kcal -> 2042 kcal
Lean Body Mass 169lb -> 170lb
Total daily energy expenditure 2952 kcal, based on an activity modifier of 1.4
ICW 76.3 -> 78.5
ECW 45.4 -> 46.3
TBW 121.7 -> 124.8
ECW/TBW ratio 0.373 -> 0.371

A/G RATIO 1.6 -> 1.5
ANION GAP 11 -> 15 mmol/L
GLUCOSE 90 -> 84 mg/dL
SODIUM 139 -> 141 mmol/L
POTASSIUM 4.3 -> 4.2 mmol/L
CHLORIDE 103 -> 104 mmol/L
CARBON DIOXIDE 30 -> 26 mmol/L
UREA NITROGEN 20 -> 32 mg/dL
CREATININE 1.2 -> 1.2 mg/dL
TOTAL PROTEIN 7.3 -> 7.3 g/dL
ALBUMIN 4.4 -> 4.4 g/dL
CALCIUM,TOTAL 9.1-> 9.4 mg/dL
BILIRUBIN,TOTAL 0.6 -> 0.7mg/dL
ALKALINE PHOS 64 -> 70 IU/L
AST 42 -> 54 IU/L
ALT 44 -> 59 IU/L
eGFR 69 -> 69
CHOLESTEROL 157 -> 111 mg/dL
HDL CHOLESTEROL 45 -> 39 mg/dL
CHOL/HDL RATIO 3.5 -> 3.2
TSH 2.84 -> 3.28 mIU/L
TRIGLYCERIDE 90 -> 105 mg/dL
LDL (CALCULATED) 94 -> 57 mg/dL
HEMOGLOBIN A1C 5.3 -> 5.2

No abnormalities in any of my basic metabolic panel or electrolytes to report. The biggest changes were in weight, body fat, and cholesterol. I lost 11 pounds of fat over 8 weeks, which is actually a little more aggressive than I had planned on. This amounted to almost 6% decrease in body fat. My total cholesterol decreased by ~30%, and LDL was almost cut in half. I wasn’t expecting such a dramatic change in cholesterol, but I’m really excited with those results. My A1c dropped slightly, but A1c is a 3 month average, so it’s only partially accredited to the last 2 months. My calculated lean body mass actually increased by 1 pound, which was a concern of mine when I started. Overall it’s been a great 2 months for transformation!

This was great. Awesome results! I just wish it was truly just 100% Huel. About 18% of your calories came from other sources. Making it an 82% Huel diet. Perhaps it would have been too difficult for you to get your protein needs by just consuming more Huel.
I just ordered my first 6 bags of Huel. Planning on going 100%. No added protein, supplements or coffee. The protein in Huel is already close to double what I currently consume per 2000 cal.
I’m excited to give this a try. Unfortunately, I won’t have the labs or body mass testing equipment.
Thanks for sharing!

Sounds annoying. All you did was talk about yourself
