Food and exercise: another accountability update

I'll raise my hand right now - this has not been a good week. In fact, it's been such a 'not good week', that I've avoided weighing myself so I don't have to see the harsh reality. The plan has been somewhat abandoned for the last five days or so. Don't worry, I'm not 'get the ...

An accountability update

Since I so publically committed to shedding some of my inappropriately acquired flab, I thought it would be useful to provide a bit of an update. Accountability and all that... Things I'm happy with I'm less fat! In terms of shedding weight, I've gone from 68.8 to 66.6 kilos since I started the year. Not ...

Huel breakfast on the go

Keeping a Huel bar close at hand saves me from a calorific airline breakfast. Three cheers for Huel!

A Huel upgrade

Now that I'm back into a semblance of healthy eating (healthy for me, that is - I'm no saint, nor am I a puritan!) and eating drinking consuming Huel regularly, I decided to expand my Huel repertoire and try new combinations. I've already identified a couple of combinations that I really like: One mixing Huel with ...

Huel keeping hunger at bay

Two days into my reformed ways for 2017 and food is never far from my mind. I'm back using Huel as a meal replacement and valuable source of vitamins and minerals. It makes for a great start to the day and keeps me really, really full. Which in turn makes it super-easy to avoid snacking or ...

A change of gears required…

When I say I 'over-consumed' over the Christmas holidays, it's no exaggeration. I consistently ate whatever was put in front of me. When I wasn't eating, I was waiting on new food being prepared, or taking a short break after finishing my last meal. Or I was asleep.  Breaks between meals were short and sweet, ...

Back in the Huel habit

After weeks of slipping into bad habits (skipping breakfast, sometimes lunch too), I got back into my Huel habit again this morning. Two scoops of Huel, a couple of teaspoons of matcha green tea I brought back from Tokyo, a banana and a good serving (yeah, I'm pretty vague when it comes to measurements) of ...

Perfecting the Huel breakfast smoothie

After a little bit of experimentation, I've arrived at what I think is the ultimate Huel breakfast smoothie. (For the why and what of Huel, check out this earlier post). In a NutriBullet (other blenders are available, obviously) add 200ml of sugar-free almond milk, a handful of ice cubes,  scoop of Huel and two lungo ...

Huel: one week in

I've been trying out a new meal replacements / space-age food / meal in a bag product called Huel ("human fuel", geddit?). It's a little like Soylent, the food replacement powder that was all over the news last year. I'd been very interested to read about it and wondered if I'd ever try it if it ...
