How long can you expect to feel full?

Is there a way to feel full for a longer period of time?

Right now I have for breakfast:
250ml milk
100ml water
2 scoops berry Huel

This leaves me full for 3 hours. I’ve read some other posts in which people are saying they’re full for about 5 hours.

So how can I stretch this? Do I need to add more scoops, drink more slowly or make the shake thicker?

I think this is something that really varies from person to person. To start with, my first Huel filled me up for a whole day, but alas that didn’t continue! You probably need to experimentand find what works for you. Off the top of my head I seem to remember other users

•Use 3 scoops of Huel. 2 scoops isn’t an awful lot.
•Have breakfast a bit later to get you through to lunch.
•Add in a banana
•Add in ice
•Drink it slowly
• Drink it quickly.


My morning huel smoothie keeps me full for longer than my normal breakfast of müesli with milk. i used to eat lunch 4 hours after my breakfast now its more like 5-6 hour after my breakfast.
I have around 1.5 scoop huel
150 - 200 g of frozen spinach (I think this what keeps me full)
1 chunk of ginger root (maybe 25 g)
150-200 g skyr (if you dont know what that is its an Icelandic dairy product, like youghurt)
topped up with Water (i dont know how much, i just fill up my blender cup
Blended for a few seconds - approx 350-400 calories

I tried it with 2 scoops of huel but it kept me full too long

Just add bacon and eggs, and that will do the trick…if a programme I saw last night is to be believed. Fried egg best. And if you eat oats, don’t eat milled ones as whole oats help too.

I find the Huel kind of fullness being different from the fullness I get when eating solid food. It’s more like a feeling of ”un-hungriness” that slowly fades during a period of about four hours and leaves room for a feeling of being emptied out. It’s more subtle than the binary states of hunger/fullness I get from ”traditional” foods. I’m just starting to get used to it.


Yeah I agree. It’s a different feeling.

Just made a big batch with spinach for tomorrow like @Penthesilea suggested. Let’s see if that makes a different.

Also going to try to sip it during the day.

With Huel I feel also different full than with other foods…I have for breakfast 2 scoops of Huel with 400 ml water. Have it at around 8 am. At around 12 I get a short but strong hunger feeling, that keeps for around 10 minutes (it is really weird, feels like having the munchies LOL)…but after that 10 minutes I am good again until my lunch break at 2 pm…with my lunch (3,5 scoops of Huel) it is similiar…get a terrible hunger feeling after around 4 hours which stays for a few minutes…fades after 10 minutes and dont have food until around 8 pm for dinner…in the beginning it was hard to not stuff my face when getting the craving…until I knew it is all good after a few minutes…just have to hang in there during the “hunger period” LOL


Try following your Huel with a hot drink. I pour in my tea / coffee to the shaker. Give it a good swill round then drink straight off. Bonus of getting all of the Huel!

Means you have warmer stomach contents -according to James this delays stomach emptying.

That’s a really good tip! I’ll try it.

The spinach one is not for me hahaha. I made it with UU and I guess I have too much of a sweet tooth to enjoy it.

Oh thats too bad, did you use vanilla Huel?
Ive tried adding berries, it does make it sweeter (I dont need it to be real sweet) but i disliked the color. Blueberry and spinach make a brown substance that dosent look like it should be eaten (in my opinion it tasted ok, but apparently I do eat with my eyes, I dont eat brown apples nor avocados either)

I made it with Unflavoured Huel and together with spinach and avocado it tasted like… well nothing really…

I use the vanilla (or coffee) for my Morning spinach huel, maybe that could make a difference - maybe try a single scoop test :grimacing:

For breakfast I had two levelled off scoops of Huel, half a banana and half an avocado whizzed with water. Kept me full for 4-5 nhours. Lunch was same again minus the banana. Again, full for hours with no snacking. Of course I have had to factor in the calories in the extras but this the only I can avoid snacking and not get too hungry
