Good afternoon, all!
I’m new (obviously) and am considering Huel and have spent some of the day perusing the forum. I’m not sure if I should hijack another newbie lookin’ for info discussion so here goes.
For years I’d eat a bagel for breakfast until this past winter when I decided to mess with the 310 meal replacements. Thinking I’d cut down on the carbs and aim for something healthier at the same time. 310 was chosen because the women in my wife’s office like it and seem to be getting results.
Problem is, I’m not getting all that full and I find myself needing to snack before lunch. I add in frozen berries and bananas, chia seeds, PB powder, vanilla yogurt (Greek generally), and use unsweetened vanilla almond milk as the liquid.
While researching smoothie recipes this morning Huel came up.
I’ll give anything a shot, but am wondering if Huel has an advantage over simple produce department recipes or other OTC “DIY” powders.
I’m in IT and sit at my computer for the bulk of the day. I’m in the car for the commute for about an hour eah day. I walk whenever I can, skipping the elevators at work and my wife and I try to get some extra steps in while walking the dog - to tire the pooch out and to meet any goals.
Dinner during the week is often salad or skinless chicken with string beans or brussels sprouts.
I’m looking to lose weight and trim some inches off my waist. I’ve been making smarter choices lately, but it’s very easy for me to look for something unhealthy to hold me over. Which I regret soon enough.
Is there anything I should be concerned about?
Thanks in advance!
