10 ways to upgrade your Huel game

I’ve been using Huel for over 2 years now. If you’re new to Huel, it’s a nutritionally complete meal replacement. I recently wrote about all the reasons you might want to give it a go. Whether your goal is weight loss, training for an event, or just making healthy eating more convenient, there are plenty of reasons to consider Huel. But doesn’t it get boring? Not in my experience. There are lots of different flavours and flavour sachets to keep things interesting.

I want to be more active, but...

One of my first posts on this blog was Why Fitness Matters. It was a bit of a manifesto that talked about how taking responsibility for your physical well-being is one of the most empowering things you can do for yourself. This post moves from WHY to HOW: how to get started, because that’s the toughest part. Fortunately, this is a great time to start. Tomorrow is National Fitness Day! There are events and offers being run up and down the country so check out what’s happening in your area.

A whole lot of reasons to try Huel meal replacement

I first tried Huel about 2 years ago. I’d seen that more and more people were experimenting with meal replacements. The simplicity of an all-in-one shake and the idea of engineering a nutritionally complete food appealed to me. If you want £10 off your first order, keep reading! But most of the initial offerings seemed pretty unhealthy. After some research, I came across the Huel website and was impressed. Short for “human fuel”, the Huel brand looked professional and clean and the core ingredients seemed much more nutritious: oats, pea protein, flaxseed, brown rice protein, coconut oil, and sunflower oil.

How restrictive diets actually work: the 5 principles of weight loss

You found a new diet. It’s the low-x diet. x might be carbs. x might be fats. x might be meat. x might be processed foods. It has a compelling story: x is now known to be the secret underlying cause of our health and obesity crisis. By reducing x, we can lose weight, reverse chronic disease and in 6-8 weeks probably definitely look like Brad Pitt in Fight Club. That fat will literally be dripping off your abs.
