After two weeks of exclusive Huel I decided to have two days off over the weekend to eat yummy food with friends.
I can only conclude it’s a bit like having annual leave and going on holiday. The build up was so exciting, the break was amazing…however the return to Huel almost made we wish i had not taken the break. It took a lot of will power.
The improvement in complexion, energy levels, sleep, concentration had been marked on exclusive Huel and changed even in the short break. I also forgot how hungry I got with my normal diet (could and should be much healthier but I’m being honest). But, my goodness, I miss those Christmas market treats and chewing!
I wanted a strong start to achieve some weight loss and then I hope to be able to achieve a happier balance. I am pretty results driven and find the exclusive Huel approach sets a healthy living mindset (so I go to the gym and walk more etc etc.)
I do the weekend break too although not completely - usually go for a good (healthy) breakfast at my favourite cafe and the rest of the meals either have Huel’s or sensible light meals before getting back on it. I don’t find it hard switching anymore and think it benefits my experience because of exercising self restraint - to a degree
I would echo Christina’s thoughts, I’ve never thought of Huel as this all or nothing product. It’s about convenience - I have Huel for breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday, cook dinners during the week and on the weekend will have ad-hoc Huel when I need some convenience.
