Huel and daily meal plan

I just ordered my first Huel. The coffee flavour, hoping to fix my nutrition as well as to get an extra boost from caffeine during the day.

Alongside using Huel, I am also planning to create a basic daily meal plan for myself.
So far it’s very all over the place. There isn’t a specific amount of meals that I have during a day and there isn’t a specific time I have those meals at either. A lot of the food I eat is junk food.

Im looking to cut out all junk food from fast food restaurants however I’m not looking to cook very often, maybe once every week at most. I am looking to replace the fast food burgers with sandwiches with tomatoes/cucumber. And add a little bit of l veg and fruit to my day. Anything else I should look into to start eating healthier?

Is Huel a good replacement for breakfast, or any other meals for that matter? Or should it be just taken alongside normal meals? Whats the recommended plan for lazy newcomers? How many meals a day should I be having and when should I eat them?

Thanks in advance,

It is to replace as many meals a day or whenever as you need, and is designed to provide a complete meal. So technically you can use it to replace breakfast one day, lunch another and both another. Use when convenient. It doesn’t replace a single meal or single time of day.

For a newbie, bear with it…you may not like it much first time you try it, some love it, others abandon it after one attempt. To me the coffee flavour is a little understated not overpowering.

Don’t rush in and replace all your meals, maybe just one a day if needed for a week or so, ten two if required. Most people don’t replace all their meal, some do.

Refrigerating Huel overnight makes it better for most people.

Welcome to the forum, Matt! Great to have you on the team. @hunzas has offered some (rare) great advice. It sounds like Huel is ideal for you to cut out the junk food.

Hi Matt. I’m a newbie too. Hope you enjoy Huel. This is Day 17 for me and I’m loving it! :grinning:
I replace breakfast and lunch with Huel (Granola for breakfast and Huel shake for lunch) and have a ‘normal’ meal for dinner. I use myfitnesspal to keep track of my daily calories as I want to lose a bit of weight. I work on a daily 500cal deficit which is losing me in the region of 1lb per week. Huel makes it very easy to count calories plus I really enjoy it. So far so good!
I replaced one meal the first day (lunch) and then jumped straight in and replaced breakfast and lunch the next. Everyone is different though. See how it goes :grin:
