First day of Huel, and I have to say I am very impressed. The taste is actually really nice (like a vanilla tasting porridge!) and its kept me full all day! Just want to give a bit of feedback for first time users:
I wanted to do a 2/3 huel diet (1 evening meal with my girlfriend), so I decided on 1200 calories. I really think a calculator allowing you to put in a calorie amount to get out how many grams of Duel would be very helpful for people just starting out.
Either use a blender or fill and shake incrementally until you get a consistency you like - don’t just dump all the Huel in the shaker and add water!
Finally, if you take your shaker or bottle out and about like I did when I was out walking, be prepared for random people’s questions
Still doing the 2/3’rds thing and loving the freedom of not having to worry and breakfast and lunch. Feeling really full, and only eating smaller meals at night - so thats helped. I did the 3 peaks challenge on Friday/Saturday as resorted to actual meals just as I didn’t want to be out of fuel for the mountains.
But I am back on Huel this week, and still loving it. Will be re-ordering at the end of the week - this time a month’s supply!
The three peaks were absolutely amazing - very very hard however. Weather was not on our side (thunder and lightning on a 5am walk across Scafell Pike), but we managed to complete the challenge with a few minutes to spare. Its definitely something people who like a real challenge need to do!
Hi Julian, Yes, the Three Peaks actually requires significantly less fitness than the Welsh 3000’s and many of those that complete the Three Peaks then go onto the 3000’s as a logical step…which definitely requires specific training over similar terrain to complete. Many of the routes are considered to be grade 1 scrambles…not for inexperienced walkers.
I’m 50 yo, in good health, and I want take 2 meals a day.
I’ m trying also another brand of food, to make a comparison.
I bought two weeks meals. I’ thinking of leave other brand because Huel formula is vegan, balanced 30:30:40, with no soia and maltodextrin.
The other brand’s ingredients are from controlled ecologic agriculture.
Is it the same for Huel ingredients?
About Huel taste, I appreciate it, maybe It is a little too sweet for me, but it is ok.
About Huel packaging, I have problem about size of bags, and because they don’t close well.
In my opinion It would be better bags size for 2000 kalories a day , with a better way to close.
Hi Julian. I am interested in the huel on for 1 year for £35,000. I am 28 and go gym for 1 hour every day. Am able
To keep to a strick diet have taken many protein shakes nice and horrible and kept at it till the end.
