Getting healthier with Huel

This is my first post. I’m not usually the type of person to post like this but I feel it may help me stay on track.

So first things first. I’m a 28 year old male with type 2 diabetes, fasting glucose is 170 on medication. 333 without it. I’m currently at 233 pounds and want to get down to 180. I had my first serving of Huel today. I’m going to try to update this once a week.


Welcome to the forums. I was diagnosed with Type 2 when I was 31. (I’m 42 now.) The diet and exercise changes helped me to shed some mass and get my A1c back to normal. I was even on Metformin for about 6 months when I first started but was able to be taken off it.

I wish you the best and please update us with your progress. What do you think of the taste?


I really like the taste. I got the vanilla and it tastes like overnight oats which I used to eat all the time. I’m currently on metformin, 2000mg a day.


I’m getting Huel due Thursday and it’s really reassuring that the vanilla tastes good. I’m hearing that a lot and that means I’ll probably like it, be able to drink more of it without needing too much doctoring, and therefore, be able to keep my food binges under control. Best of luck, @russellm !
