Idk i can call the titel that and I’m sorry if it’s not okay I do so! Just didn’t know what else to call it… Sorry.
I’m from Danmark, only been on huel for almost a month now and as the title says I have a eating disorder that has affected my relationship with food for my whole life. It’s not a eating disorder my country have much knowledge about or at least my doctor and other professionals aren’t sure what’s going on with me exactly but basically my body rejects food… Almost any food which means I mostly go around with heavy nausea or forced to throw up against my will. Because of this I rarely ate or only ate the few things my body would accept which wasn’t the most healthy of food or must enjoyable to eat or make. Ofc this has lead to me not getting the protein and vitamins I needed for so so many years! It also made my obese (who know not eating could do that to you? Not me!)
My best friend has seen my suffering from this for a long time so he suggested me to try out huel. He himself have used it for years with success for his own goals, so we went through the known ingredients to see if any of them was anything my body had problems with and everything seemed fine. So I went ahead and ordered 2 bags of normal huel, vanilla and chocolate and a salted caramel booster.
I have now been using it for almost a month as mentioned before and other then the chocolate (which was a risk to begin with since I’m kinda allergic to chocolate but hey… I love chocolate, can’t blame me for that xD) and some lite dizziness in the beginning, it has actually worked for me! I only drink 2 shakes a day and I only managed to drink a half shake at the time since I’m actually not use to eat that much a day but it stays down and I have no nausea at all with it! I am trying slowly to increase my intake so I getting exactly what I need but one step at the time! I actually feel better and have more energy which helps me on a daily basis where I’m fighting with ptsd, mixed personality disorder and anxiety which really can take your energy away and mess with your mood. It also taste pretty good according to me.
I don’t say huel is the way for others with eating disorders since everyone is different and you should find out what works best for you! Preferably with professional help to guide you. But for me who has tried everything to befriend food for my whole life, it has open up a way for me to actually be healthy with food and get the vitamins and protein I need without causing me pain or discomfort and for that I’m deeply thankful for.
I have already ordered my second batch of huel. This time I’m having Vanille, salted caramel and berry flavor. Can’t wait for it to get here!
thank you for listening to my story and I hope it’s okay I share it <3
