What do you mix Huel with?

#74

Hi Hunzas.

Thanks so much for the advice. This is very much appeciated. I am having 2 x 3 scoops of Huel per day for breakfast and lunch. I am using 400ml of water to mix.
If I get hungry I am having a banana / apple which takes away any other craving that I may have.
The vice I was having was junk food. At first it was tough, now I am over the worst and on a journey being borderline diabetic. I am determined to do this.

Best regards Tom

I just realised I missed something in my last post. I was meant to attach a link: https://tdeecalculator.net which helps you calculate calories. It is pretty good. My post made less sense without it.

I think what you are doing seems reasonable. Just don’t want to get too hungry as that is a quick way to lose motivation.

Losing weight and improving diet can often take you out of the realms of borderline diabetic. That has got to be a good thing. In fact a good diet can reverse type 2 diabetes. That is can not will. I have been seeing a very good diabetes consultant who speaks highly of diet (I am not diabetic, but have another non-diet/exercise related endocrine issue) in reversing diabetes. He is a key researcher in the roles that exercise and diet can play in the prevention and management of the metabolic syndrome (a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity). A good diet and some moderate exercise can help in all these areas.

You obviously don’t want to become diabetic so good luck with it all.

I’m thinking about buying the raspberry flavdrops with my first order of the Berry Huel. How was it? Recommend it?

If you’re talking about the Raspberry flavdrops from MyProtein, go for the Stevia ones. I don’t like the Sucralose ones myself. Others may disagree.

300ml Alpro Almond milk
2 scoops of original vanilla
1 banana
Blend up the night before, this is my default breakfast shake but I also add in coffee, extra water/almond milk depending on if I want the caffeine hit or not.

Recently discovered coconut flavoured almond milk, game changer! :slightly_smiling_face:

Pre-Huel, I was mixing green smoothies and using quite a bit of time and money to ensure getting the required nutrients. Moving to Huel simplified my daily routine greatly. I add a (real) banana for flavour and consistency, but nothing else. However, after reading an article about vinegar I have started adding a dessertspoon of vinegar into a standard 3 scoop huel + banana!

I wouldn’t describe it as an improvement in taste sensation, but it’s tolerable. Too soon to judge if abdominal fat is reduced, though.

For breakfast, I drink Huel made by: 12oz of milk + 8oz of water + 2 scoops of Huel that was prepped and stored in the fridge overnight. I drink this and then eat a bowl of oatmeal that is 1 serving of old fashioned oats + 1 serving of chia seeds + 1 serving of almond butter + 1 serving of raw & unfiltered honey. Perfect way to start the day.

2 scoops of Original with 300-400mil water + 1 small banana + 1/2 teaspoon of date syrup.
Whizz it smooth with a stick blender.
Leave in fridge overnight. Yum!

Try the above with 200ml semi-skimmed milk, 100-200ml water + a few drops of vanilla. Yum.
It tastes like cake mix - you know, when your Mum has made a cake and you ‘lick the bowl out’ just before it reaches the sink.

Mmmmm…
It’s a bit more-ish.

I’m newer so I haven’t had a chance to explore but my favorite so far is with the chocolate blended with water and a frozen banana, then I mix in a bunch of pomegranate seeds with the juice (I usually eat the whole seed.) It gives it a nice sweet but tart taste that is delicious.
