I gave myself a 2 week trial of Huel that was to end yesterday. But my second order arrived this morning just in time for me to continue without a break, so I guess I can say that I have mainstreamed Huel into my life.
I’m hoping to restrict my intake to 2 x 4 scoop meals made with semiskilled milk per day, with no normal food in my diet at all. On 3 days during my 2 week ‘trial’ period I had 3 meals, but I manage well on 2 most days and have not been hungry.
My reasons for switching to a total Huel diet are to do with chronic illness. It is very convenient, means I no longer eat junk, and ensures I’m getting the best nutrient mix. I’m also hoping that it will assist with weight loss. I am house-bound because of my ill-health, and bed-bound several days a week, so I have almost zero physical activity. So restricting my calorie intake while ensuring I get the correct nutrition has up to now been very difficult.
My early problems with not enjoying Huel are totally turned around. Using the semi-skimmed milk and the flavour systems have made it a very pleasant experience.
I’ll keep you up to speed with how I get on, particularly with respect to weight loss.
