I just want to outline my anecdotal case where Huel might have played a major role in improving my health.
4 years ago (!) I started having weird heart rhythm problems. It started off with a skipped beat per week, then it progressed into a daily problem, and finally I had days where my heart would just be crazy – like 100 skipped beats and pauses. Alcohol became a NO-NO for me! After drinking my heart would go fully nuts. Even more: my resting heart rate was at 40 bpm while awake!
Of course, I went to quite a few physicians to investigate this. But, my heart was structurally normal and the problems I had were just dismissed as me being nuts. The skipped beats were detected, but they were benign. The heart rate was also not taken serious as I was not falling unconscious. I was like “alright, guess I have to get used to this new heart”.
A year has passed and I researched a lot about the heart (believe me, heart rhythm problems do make one very concerned in life…). I slowly started to grasp how important nutrition is to keep the heart healthy.
Then it hit me!!
I looked back throughout the past 5 years of my life and was shocked of my blindness. My nutrition was disastrous. Sometimes I would eat 2 sandwiches for breakfast, one proper meal for lunch, and cereals for dinner. Nothing else! I am just a type of person that is not really affected by the feeling of hunger.
Me, being a science guy, went on to try to solve this scientifically: let’s find the easiest way to get all you need for your body. That’s when I found Huel – 8 months ago.
1-2 weeks after I started consuming Huel, my heart has stopped having “crazy days”.
3 weeks after: my resting heart rate became 54.
2 months after: alcohol was fine again.
today: heart rate is at 65 and I have almost no heart rhythm problems.
My diet since 8 months ago consists of ~50% Huel and I don’t think I will change it. A big burden in my life is gone and I feel much more alive again.
I know this is just correlation and I can’t prove the causation of this. But I was really in a terrible state 8 months ago and the only thing I changed was my diet.
Thank you for this awesome product!
