Chris here, started this week with Huel so still in my first days.
Not the most healthy guy, convenience and lazy-foods before else.
Like many people, I’ve been thinking of changing/improving my health multiple times.
NOW ! It is time to DO IT !!
My goals are to quit smoking, less drinking and improve my diet.
In a short time from now, I want to start cycling again aswell, so extra motivation.
Even though I want to quit smoking, as it is not the only (drastic) change, I will smoke
less first and do it all step by step. Even though I intended so, I basically quit already and
don’t drink during weekdays anymore either. On top of all this ‘rushing into it’, my diet is
almost completely Huel Powder now already (3 x 4,5 scp spread through the day).
So far, I actually don’t feel any side effects (even despite the rushing) other than being a
littly gassy and thus having to be careful around my colleagues.
First 2 days, I experienced a reflux more often and slightly more intense than I already did
in my former diet. I found that for me, this is solved by drinking my coffee not as strong as
I’ve always done (so normal coffee now). Aside from that, drinking a beer close before or
after my Huel meals doesn’t do well for the same reason.
Even though my first week hasn’t completed yet, the plus sides are :
- Almost no cravings (which was a 24/8 presence, no typo);
- Not feeling tired through the day (I sleep less but rest a lot better now);
- More energetic yet a less ‘chaotic’ mind (likely due to better rest and well balanced diet).
By now, I think I’ll keep going as it hasn’t really been a problem to me at all thus far. Right
the only Huel I have is the powder, but for my next order I will also include the Huel Bars to
change the few ‘snack moments’ aswell and see how it goes.
Any thoughts, advice or idea’s (either Huel or general health related) are rather welcome.
This is my cough short cough story to kick off with, sorry for taking your time.
Thanks for reading and any response.
