I’ve been having Huel for breakfast and lunch every day now for the past 4 months (with the exception of 2 weeks over Christmas). I have dinner as normal, and if we’re honest, my dinner habits haven’t changed substantially and as having Huel for breakfast and lunch isn’t filling me up very well, I do think my portion sizes in the evening have increased.
I have been tracking my cholesterol using Thriva, and my first set of results before starting on Huel showed worrying levels of Chloesterol and LDL Cholesterol. Now I don’t claim to know much about this at all… which is why I’m asking you guys for your opinion - but after 4 months of Huel, I did another Thriva test to track any changes, having rid myself of any unhealthy breakfasts or lunches.
The below shows my Cholesterol levels from the test done before Huel, and 4 months on Huel for breakfast & lunch

My main reason for starting on Huel is because I’m such a fussy eater that I don’t like any veg hardly and I know my intake of important nutrients is minimal. I was hoping though that by replacing usually unhealthy breakfasts and lunches with Huel would have a noticeable effect on my Cholesterol, but it doesn’t seem to.
Unless my dinner eating habits have been so significant that it counteracts the changes made for Breakfast and Lunch?
I don’t think I can face going 100% Huel, but I’m now questioning whether I should be continuing with Huel or whether I need another solution to improve my diet.
