Looking to start Huel this month, however not sure about my first purchase.
Two bags every four weeks claims to be 28 means, but if on low cal diet (ideally a 500cal deficit) could I split this and double the number of meals? Would this be enough?
A meal is counted as 500 kcal. So if you were to eat 250 kcal, it’s twice as many
2 scoops is roughly 300 and a bit calories
So if you had 2 scoops instead of 3 … lower calories and lasts a bit longer
My two bags lasted three weeks. Three scoops with 500ml water, one medium banana, one tsp of peanut butter and ice whizzed in a blender. Two a day at around 600 calories each. I can have 1725 calories per day according to the counter link on the main Huel site. I work in a doctors surgery and there is a plentiful supply of crisps and biscuits freely available. So I can eat them counting as I go (I just note the calories in my daily diary).
It works for me. It does not feel like a diet, I can eat mostly what I like and I am losing weight. 5 Weeks in and my clothes are definitely looser. My pull-up trousers nearly fell off last week! I am choosing not to use scales to track the loss. They scream diet.
I find Huel very filling especially the breakfast one. Sometimes I take it to work and sip throughout the morning. That way I can pass on the crisps and biscuits! I tend to pass on an evening meal. I just count in some fruit. I feel full on Huel.
Thats great thankyou very much!
