I’ve been lurking and reading since I ordered, but decided not to post until I received and tried my Huel. It arrived a few days ago, and today is day three using it.
To start off, I actually like the flavor of the vanilla. My biggest fear was that I would hate it, because I have tried so many “shakes” (protein, diet, meal shakes) that range from gross to vile. I was very pleasantly surprised that Huel vanilla tastes just like it was described: light oaty flavor with vanilla and a bit of sweetness. I enjoy drinking it. I also got some U/U, but I’ve only used the vanilla so far.
My goal when starting Huel was to lose weight and save money by breaking some really bad habits I’ve picked up. I chronically skip breakfast, I always order lunch at work, it’s alway a huge lunch, it costs a fortune, and then I eat a huge dinner on top of it all. It’s like I took every cardinal sin of nutrition and budget and told them, “hold my beer.”
Since the Huel came in, I am having three shakes (2 scoops each) at work and eating dinner. Dinner is still less than healthy, but by having a shake earlier in the day, I have more energy, by breaking breakfast and lunch into three shakes, I am not hungry, and I get more water. And I am less hungry at dinner, so even that will be easier to make healthier (portion wise) as time goes on.
I am very excited about my great start and am looking forward to tweaking my process and reaching my weight and budget goals.
Sorry, I hit post too soon and only posted half of this. This is the complete post now.
