Hi all, just got my package today so I felt I should introduce myself. I’m Shane, 45 and like many people, feel the need to improve my diet and be healthier. A colleague introduced Huel to me - he started taking it just over a week ago - and after looking at the product and reading lots of posts on this forum I decided to give it a shot!
Before I go on, I want to say how great this forum is. After placing my order yesterday afternoon, I spent about 3 hours last night reading tons of posts on here. This place is so supportive! It’s so nice to see a community where everyone is nice to each other - we need more of this on the Internet!
As for me, I’m reasonably active. I’m a fan of P90X3 and have done a few rounds of it. I’ve just started a new round, so this is a great time to supplement my diet with Huel.I’m not under any false impression here; I’m aware it’s not a weight loss drink. Having said that, I’m impressed by the number of people on here who have lost weight progressively over time, and I’m excited to see what Huel can do for me!
I purchased two bags of the berry flavour. I figured I could replace either lunch or dinner (dinner 6 days a week; lunch on Sundays as I only get 30 minutes for lunch at work). I had my first drink this evening. I’ve had protein drinks before so I’m used to the powdery/chalk-like consistency of some of them. I mixed 3 scoops with 400ml water and added a banana, then after blending I added a further 170ml water, as per the instructions. It tasted pretty good! Not too sweet, not overpowering. A little chalk-like but certainly nothing to make me gag or feel unpleasant. It’s early days, but I don’t think I’ll have any issue with the taste and/or consistency. Oh, I’ve also ordered some Flavdrops, so we’ll see if they help when they arrive.
Anyway, I’ve rambled enough already. For those who persisted, thanks for reading! It’ll be nice to make some friends in this community and share stories with others!
