I received my Huel powder yesterday and today was Day One! I chose Huel because I don’t actually enjoy eating, and I need to lose a lot of weight. I tend to eat junk food for taste only, and don’t get nutritional benefits.
I have both Chocolate and Vanilla; today was Chocolate.
I decided to load the two scoops of powder into the shaker and add the water afterwards. I know that’s not the “recommended” method. It worked fine.
After the initial taste (water+Huel) I’d rate it about a B on the acceptance scale. Wasn’t horrible, wasn’t amazing. The consistency is grainy; you can pick up the taste and the feel of the powder. It’s hard to place the flavor but it came across as earthy. After a couple sips I added a packet of Starbucks VIA coffee. That was good, not a strong coffee flavor though so maybe next time two packets.
I didn’t make it though the whole shaker; not sure if that’s usual or not. I am feeling pretty satisfied/full from the serving. It took me over an hour to completely drink as much as I did, which surprised me. It’s certainly not a “gulp and go” food.
About 45 minutes after starting Huel, I did notice a bit of belly rumblings (not the hunger type) but now, 2 hours later, that’s mostly died down.
