So i have been using Huel for two weeks now and i have been feeling much better.
I am not tracking weight loss as i am Hueling for a better health/nutrition, but people have begun commenting at work that i look different, so great on that front as well.
Right now, i have settled for:
Breakfast: Coffee Flavored Huel (with a bit of cocoa powder for a flavor boost)
Lunch : Salad (Plain Lettuce, 3 cherry Tomatoes) + 1 “grilled” (Halogen Oven, no Oil) chicken piece.
Snack::1 Banana or 1 Apple
Dinner: Chocolate Flavored Huel
I am also drinking only and exclusively water.
Just to make a comparison, this is what i used to eat (aprox) for the last few years:
*Obviously the food would change daily, but it was of the same types.
Breakfast: Two bowls of chocolatey cereal with Milk or some industrial bakery goods in big amounts.
Snack: Chocolate or some other candy, probably with a soda
Lunch: McDonalds Large Meal (At work lunchbreaks)
Snack: Some more chocolate with more soda
Dinner: Either Fish&Chips/Fried Chicken&Chips or Pizza/Delivery food.
Snack: Either more ceral or whatever i could find
I used to be extremely hungry and always in need to eat more, probably because i had a very big nutritional deficit and my body was trying to compensate, and i was often sick and feeling weak and sleepy during my extremely heavy nightshifts.
In just two weeks, i have recovered my sleep pattern, i feel more agile and almost never too tired or without energy, i am almost never hungry between meals, and even when i am a tiny apple or a banana are enough to make me feel satisfied until the next meal/Huel.
I wanted to go “full time Huel” but i was missing chewing and “eating” too much after a few days, so i switched to my current “Menu” which solves this issue, but maybe i will in the future.
My tummy has also behaved and i luckily did not have any of the upset stomach issues others had.
Was probably happy to receive real food for once, hah!
