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
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.
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
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)
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
