I’m 27 years old, 6’1" 310 pounds at the start of my journey. I’m a father of one and soon to be father of two in September. I’m a mail carrier but I’m in the truck most of the day. I’m a recovering alcoholic and I’m recently 3 years sober. I want to live as long as possible to watch my children grow. Having children put everything into perspective. I don’t want them looking at their dad and thinking it’s ok to not be healthy. I researched plenty of products to help me out. These forums and the Huel website itself sold me on choosing Huel.
My current routine is 1 scoop of Huel in the morning with 8 ounces of whole milk and a tablespoon of instant coffee. The whole milk makes up for the missing calories from 2 scoops. For lunch I have 2 scoops with 12 ounces of an almond/cashew milk blend. This blend has about half the calories of straight almond milk. For dinner I usually have a Chipotle bowl with brown rice, chicken, fajita veggies, tomatoes, corn and lettuce. If I don’t get Chipotle I do 1 scoop of Huel with 8 ounces of whole milk.
My favorite Huel powders in order are Unflavored/Unsweetened, Vanilla, Chocolate and lastly Berry which I don’t like very much. Mixing a scoop of U/U with Berry does help dilute the sweetness and taste. This is what I’ll be doing until I am finished with it and won’t be ordering another Berry bag. The U/U is my favorite because it’s natural base flavor is good to me and it will change flavor with mostly anything you add to it. I’ve discovered flavor syrups don’t flavor it very well for some reason, though. Vanilla powder is sweet but it is very good with half U/U in it as well. Chocolate is great on it’s own and also tastes somewhat like hot chocolate with the addition of U/U.
