I’ve been now on Huel for 2 weeks and thought I drop a note to share my experience.
I went for the unsweetened / unflavoured gluten free version which is great to avoid sucralose and gluten, 2 poisons for the body
First of all the taste. I had to adapt to it for a few days but very surprised by the neutrality and after 2 weeks, instead of becoming fed up with it, I just love it. I make it simple, use water, put 50 g of blueberries (morning shake only), chocolate flavour (bought with Huel), and for the shake which follow my daily gym session, 40 g of Vega Protein berry flavour.
A bit lazy to try other mixes, and since I love the taste I don’t make the effort to change.
2nd thing, the digestion. I must admit that the first week has been very tough. I have to also say that I went straight into it, from day 1 at 4x120g + 1x60g the evening, and a ‘normal’ lunch. This stuff brings chemical warfare to a whole different level! Nauseous gas, stomach pain, some diarrheas…made it very hard to share the same space with anyone else without risking their lives. But then 2nd week has become more manageable. At the end of the week, stomach pain is gone, diarrheas as well, and although I must stay careful not to let anything get out in public, the occasions have decreased a lot. I am not sure it will all go down to 0 because having been on vegan proteins in the past, they tend to be hard to digest.
So all in all, very happy with the product! I took it for short term objective, as I am on a programme to get lean and in shape for a Christmas vacation in the Carribeans. Not sure about long term use, as I have a hard time to imagine it can replace real food. But fo my objectives it works nicely so far, 3 kg lost but more importantly (as I am not after weight loss), 2-3 % fat loss in 2 weeks. And last but not least, no cooking and measuring, which is the pain when on training diet with 4-5 meals a day where one needs to measure carbs-protein-fat intake.
Hope it helps other and happy to discuss more feedback
