About a year ago I was trying to save money so decided to stop buying lunch near work and instead take my own in. However I quickly discovered that doing packed lunch cheaply often meant sandwiches and crisps rather than the salads or sushi I’d previously bought at great expense. So I had a choice of saving money or eating healthily. Or so I thought - then I discovered Huel.
Buying lunch used to cost about £6 per meal. Taking in lunch used to cost between £1-3 per meal but was often unhealthy and didn’t fill me up. But Huel costs less than £2 per meal and it fills me up until the evening - which I was surprised about. So it did well on the saving money front, but what about health/weight?
Another reason I started Huel was to try to lose weight for my wedding. I’ve been using it for nearly a year and lost 5-6kg (before I then also increased exercise), and it’s been a sustained loss by maintaining Huel as my lunch most weekdays.
