Some of you maybe know me from the forum, and I wanted to share my experience with Huel as part of the ambassador project.
I always have been interested on the tech world, considering myself a geek. It was with the launch of Soylent on 2014 when my head clicked and I clearly thought it was going to be the future. So I started to look for alternatives and I tried Jimmy Joy, Jake, Queal and some more, choosing Jimmy Joy from 2014 to 2017. As I was still living with my parents I had those meals from time to time.
It was on the 2017 when I started working while finishing my studies that I wanted to set up some day routine and food efficiency was important to me.
I changed to Huel because I found that the macros and the ingredients where the best option for me after researching again.
For me Huel is a game-changer. I am lucky to always have had a great diet and food culture at my home, but Huel hits all the important spots of what nutrition should be. I am currently having Huel as my main meal everyday during the week and in some breakfasts or lunch making it aprox the 50% of my diet, but it fluctuates.
As a matter of curiosity, sometimes I have to eat normal food and not have any Huel in 3-4 days and my body needs a Huel because I dont feel “optimised”. Those days I feel a little heavier, specially after meals, I think its because of the less water intake and fibre. Removing Huel from my life would definitely make it worse.
I love great food, cooking on weekends, enjoy restaurants and eat with friends but Huel is something that will always be at my pantry for convenience and nutrition.
Also thank you to the Huel team for all the nutrition information I have learnt during the period on the forum and to make it one of my small hobbies.
