I’m a regular Huel user on and off. But, since I started a new job about a month ago I’ve been eating Huel for breakfast and lunch. Starting this weekend, I’m going to attempt a Huel only diet for at least a month. Wish me luck!
About me: I’m 39, 6’1" ish and I’m up to 330lbs. This is the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life. I’m ready for a dramatic change. I’m hoping to break my food addiction and drop 100lbs within a year.
Ambitious, but certainly possible. To go from 330 to 230 in a year is certainly doable in a year. That’s a 2 lb per week loss, on average. Although it will likely be real fast for the first half and then slow way down.
I went from 277lbs to 190 lbs in about 2 years. The first 50 pounds came off real fast. After the first month of exercise, I got in more shape and was able to exercise longer. Then I was dropping about 3 pounds a week for almost 2 and a half months. Then I went through an 8 week plateau (which really pissed me off). And then the weight loss resumed at a much slower pace. The closer I got to my goal weight, the slower it went.
In essence, the more insulin resistant you are, the faster you will lose fat from exercise and a low GI diet.
