    I was looking into this a while back but I didn't know anyone who had tried it.

    Thinking of ditching breakie and lunch for this and just have a regular evening meal.

    It's actually not a bad taste, oaty (unsurprisingly)
    You do still crave food but for comforts sake it seems.

    Swapping it for lunch works well for me, no lunch time snacking on crap, exercise was never a problem but my diet didnt help, this definitely helps trim.

    Why? What are you trying to achieve?

    The general thought is that you should stoke up at breakfast have a lighter lunch and little in the evening (clue for break fast is in the name). I think the basis is that you stoke up at the start of the day hen you are going to be more active, and eat lightly in the evening before the inactivity of sleep.

    But Im afraid I don't follow that advice - my main meal is still in the evening!

    Re: Huel - The 'nutritionally complete food' has anyone tried it?

    I tend to agree, skipping lunch will encourage you to overeat at night, which may be part psychological as part of a 'reward', and part physical as you are more hungry. Eating a large meal late can cause an excessive glycaemic load when it is not needed, making it more likely to get stored as fat. It can also lead to reflux and discomfort in the supine position, worsening quality of sleep. Being hungry during the day may also lead to lower mood, concentration and performance.

    Few do or can follow it these days. I think this is referred to as Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper but dont quote me on that.

    I'm rarely hungry before 11am, no matter the size of breakfast I just cant get it down me, I've always skipped it since as long as I can remember. When I previously tried to go down the shake route when I got up I'd feel bloated and ill for hours so I've just decided to listen to my body on this one. 11 is too early for lunch so a healthyish bar at that time would be ideal, I dont have to prepare anything complicated and time consuming like a shake.
    I've found these as a cheaper alternative. http://www.eatstoats.com/our-tasty-products/bars.html

    Those stoats bars arent great for sugar (12g ish) but do work better than a chocolate bar!

    Ttask - how do you manage that? I'm usually constantly hungry, do you gym or anything?

    I eat dinner. That's about it. I don't snack or anything and I no longer smoke.
    I drink a few cups of coffee, maybe that's it?

    I have put on quite a bit of belly in the last year or so, though.
    No gym or anything like that, any more. Used to do a bit once or twice a week.
