Week 17 Day 3 – Huel, Days 2 & 3
As you can tell from yesterday I’m a day behind with my blogging so I thought today I’d consolidate Tuesday and Wednesday.
Only breakfast again, but this time I used a Strawberry flavour boost.
Still a 50g breakfast of around 200 calories. I can’t say I really knew there was a strawberry taste. It was there but didn’t really get overcome the oats taste.
This time I didn’t snack. Was full and satisfied right up too lunch, which for me at work is almost unheard of. Sadly it all went wrong at lunch with a baguette, chocolate and crisps. They dinner turned into a Two for Tuesday dominos pizza – but none of that is the fault of Huel, just me being weak too temptation.
Today’s breakfast, another 50g serving, was topped off with 30g frozen berries. Again this seemed to only add colour, there was no discernible change in flavour! I really need a bigger blender so I can add more fruit!
I also found this morning’s breakfast hard to drink. I just couldn’t stomach the taste of oats anymore, but I finished it off anyway.
Another side effect, after about twenty minutes I developed a splitting headache. Since so many things can cause headaches I’m not willing to blame the Huel, I’ll wait to see if it happens again before I pass judgement.
10:00 – Still splitting headache, but I’ve not drank anything yet so that’s probably not helped.
10:46 – I’m starting to think about food. Maybe it’s the headache or that I’m tired, but either way food is on my mind. Another possibility, worth testing, is the added fruit what’s making me hungry? I know I’m prone to sugar spikes and binge eating. Is fruit too much sugar for me?
11:15 – seems to have past. No more food thoughts. Starting to think this really could be more to do with the sugar rushes
12:23 – can’t decide now if the headaches getting worse or not, but least I’ve stopped thinking about food… wonder what’s for lunch
12:44 – Blowing your nose should leave you little dizzy and disorientated, should it? No really shouldn’t.
12:45 – Wonder when this becomes sharing too much, but its all for science or what ever reason I’m doing this stuff for
13:30 – Sausage roll and bounty for lunch, then a bag of McCoys. I have no will power
