Just a hello from a new Hueler. I couldn’t see a ‘Say Hello’ category so I guess here is the place?
I’m about 3 to 4 weeks in from my first order arriving. In it for nutrition, convenience, money saving and above all that, weight loss (and lots of it!)
Being from a Food and Drink/Hospitality background going full Huel isn’t really an option for me, So I’ve generally been sticking to Breakfast and Lunch Huel, then a healthy evening meal. Works for me.
So far so good. enjoy the taste, love playing with the recipes, feel healthier/more energy and the weight seems to be going in the right direction (though i’m not monitoring with scales until after Christmas!) I do often feel hungry, but only as much as with any new diet, until the body adapts.
I blend, go 3 scoops, 600ml of water and half a Banana - improves the texture for me greatly - per meal (I generally mix up 2 meals together) then add flavour boosts or various real fruit. Apple and Cinnamon (no Banana) or a handful of frozen berries has been working well outside of the Huel flavours. On that note, I’ve got Caramel and Pineapple/Coconut boosts on the way, as they were winners for me. I have real Cocoa and Coffee at home so don’t feel the boosts are needed for those.
I’ve also ordered the Rhubarb out of curiosity, as that flavour was not in the tester samples.
I drink from Systema 725ml Square bottles, wide mouth, perfect size for 2x in a small cool bag with an ice block, keeping it chilled all morning. (Though i’ve recently found out they don’t quite fit in my car cup holder…so may need to adapt!)
Now that i’ve subscribed to deliveries my plans are to consider Tupperware storage rather than just in the bags, and look for a scoop equivalent of 3x the supplied, or weigh for more exact measures.
I’ll also be keeping a closer eye on calorie intake and weight loss, see how far I can make this work for me! (Along with a renewed gym membership that is!)
I look forward to using these forums for hints and tips!
