Bought my first lot of Vanilla GF Huel 3 days ago and I’m loving it so far. My usual diet is WFPB and GF, and I also FODMAP for good measure (I’m a pain in restaurants!). I have IBS and an occasional grumbling gallbladder due to a large stone. I am trying Huel as I think it may be gentle on my gut and also a few people on forums claim that a liquid diet can help with gallbladder flare ups.
I am usually quite a functional eater, I eat healthily on the whole but thought I’d give this a shot as it takes the fuss out of meal planning. I originally decided to do 2 meals of Huel (breakfast and lunch) and have one regular meal. However, what seems to have happened is that I am having 2 x 2 scoops (breakfast and lunch) and then a 3 scoop later, this is around 1050 cals and between I am having some fruit and raw veg. I am also flavouring my huel with a small handful of frozen berries or mango and it works a treat! (I use a blender).
I am not feeling hungry (fab), I am not getting my usual bloating (super fab) and so far I am not hankering for other food.
I am hoping to slowly lose some weight (I’ve been on the cal.net calculator and according to this I should lose 1ib a week.
Looking forward to sharing experiences and getting some top tips. xx
