My Two Weeks On Nupo

I've been a very bold girl over the last few months and putting losing the last 1.5 stone off for ages. I really have no excuse other than life with work involved is hectic and the long days mean I come home starving and stuff myself with bad things. And admittedly I had put on a few pounds.
I knew I needed to do something but it wasn't until an email from Nupo arrived in my inbox, that I decided to revisit my weight loss journey so I could finally get down to my pre baby weight.


What Is Nupo? 
Nupo were kind enough to send me a two week supply of shakes, soups and bars to try their very low calorie diet. Very low calorie in that all you use is their products and take in 750 calories. I really didn't know how I was going to manage with this so I decided to start over two weeks where I had a decent amount of time of work. I choose to do it this way so I only had a few full work days, the rest I was either off or in a half day.

As with any diet, you need to be drinking 2-3 litres of fluids a day. Not really a problem for me as I constantly have a bottle of water glued to me, but I was happy to see on Nupo, sugar free fruit juice, tea and coffee counted towards the intake. On the VLCD, you take six portions of Nupo a day and although the shakes were lovely, I preferred the chocolate bars. (Typical chocolate lover) 

How I got on...
The shakes and bars were incredibly tasty and didn't have me feeling hungry. I won't lie to you, the first few days were extremely tough. Although I wasn't hungry, I missed my food especially all the naughty things like crisps and chocolate. That just shows how bad I had become. Hubby wasn't exactly helping in the beginning, eating pretty much everything I loved but he soon stopped.

I was also sent the Spicy Thai Chicken soup to try, while it was nice, I think the shakes and bars are more for me.

I did have a couple of slip ups, mostly the days I was working 10 hours in work and then at a couple of blogger events. On my first week, I did very little exercise apart from walking to and from the Dart Stations but in my second week I broke out the cross trainer and did 30 mins before going to bed each night.  Two days in and I had lost 5lbs and I am two weeks in and I have lost 10lbs .I am delighted with this weight loss and it had definitely encouraged me to restart my weightloss journey

*I wouldn't recommend staying on the VLCD for more than two weeks, it's just a great kickstart to weightloss and you do get a good portion of your vitamins and mineral but long term healthy eating and exercise are the way to go*
