Hi, I’m thinking of trying out Huel for a couple of months to help manage my weight while recovering from an injury. I’m thinking of using it to replace breakfast and lunch each day and having a meal each night once home from work.
Any advice on flavours etc, I normally use chocolate whey protein when I can change but due to an injury I have limited what I can do for exercise. Most days is walking to and from the train station on crutches.
Also how good is Huel at making you feel full as that’s one thing I’m suffering with party due to boredom at work.
Thanks for the advice ill keep that in mind ordered the Vanilla and Chocolate flavours to try out. I have read that Vanilla can be a bit to sweet little worried about that thinking maybe i should have got two bags of chocolate.
On the question about feeling full, I would confirm this is the case - in my experience at least. The Huel recipe emphasises protein for this reason, with well above the recommended daily amount…whereas other ingredients more or less match the recommendations.
In my case, I eat between 12 noon an 8pm, and my break-fast (at noon) is always Huel. It keeps me going until 6pm or so when I usually have solid food and only occasionally more Huel. I’ve had this eating pattern for a couple of years now and I find it effective to keep weight variations at a reasonable level.
