Weight loss. What is your story?

Hi, I’m new to Huel and I was just wondering what type of positive effects has it had on people who are trying to lose weight, as I am trying to do the same. Please share your stories with me for motivation and support. Thank you! P.S currently on day 3.

Hi Dj,
I’ll be interested to hear these stories as well - for me, trying to use Huel for consecutive meals in a row ends up having my daily calories come out higher than if I’m only using it for say breakfast. Personally, not trying to lose weight (but not looking to gain either) so I went with an order of bars for this month to see if they stick with me a little longer.

If I can offer any (unsolicited) advice it would be focus on small habits you can change that you can live with and build on that. If you’re making positive changes, the scale is going to move without you even trying!

All the best on your journey pal!

Hi DJ,

I have been on Huel for 3 months a second time. The first time I lost 50 pounds over a year ago just from using Huel shakes. I got tired of drinking them even though it was working. Now I have lost 75 pounds and been using the Hot and Savory Spicy Indian Curry flavor. I am going to switch to the new Black bag shakes once the weather turns warmer. I have been using the bars for a breakfast or mid-day snack (between lunch and dinner) and I eat a normal dinner. To keep my body guessing I have 2 days a week were I have a normal lunch and dinner instead of using Huel.

Hope this motivates you and helps you out as well. I went from over 500 lbs to currently 425 lbs.

I can’t say enough about Huel.
I use the Hot and Savory as an excellent lunch on a cold afternoon. The Spicy Indian Curry is my favorite and makes me sweat. Working out, I know every drop of sweat counts. I love it when I make my fat cry. The Huel Peanut butter Black is my go-to shake in the morning before I hit the gym, giving me enough energy to produce even more sweat. I have been working my body hard. To date, 33 lbs lighter and going.
Huel is a compliment to the lifestyle change I have implemented. Environmentally, I wanted to switch to a friendly plant (planet) loving diet and less meat while improving nutrients and protein. A complex challenge if I was cooking on my own. Huel solves this. I keep track of calories to help reprogram my brain. Huel makes math easy. With Huel, you know exactly the number you consume.
My parents said, “you eat the same thing every day,” yet they realized that morning egg or toast becomes repetitive and is cholesterol building when they started keeping track. I love to cook, and I look forward to the meal where I pour my heart and soul into my creation and take the time to enjoy.

Thank you Huel

MY GO-TO AM DRINK:
2-scoops Peanutbutter Black +1 banana +H2O blend

  • I don’t know what it is about Peanut butter with me :laughing:

LUNCH (HOT and Savory)

  • I like them all-Easy with an electric kettle.
  • Suggestion: I purchased a couple of the soup containers and liked the fact they are Dishwasher top rack safe. Keeping it simple.

Bars: Excellent source in a pinch.
Premade drinks: Good; however, I still like making mine. I might try chocolate-black instead of my peanut butter someday.

Unflavored Black- this great, and I switch this using 1 scoop and 1 peanut butter in A.M.

  • Be careful and read reviews. I use this with fruit, but, also, I’m not too fond of sweet things.
    I caught a glance at someone’s cart at the grocery store yesterday. They must have had 6-7 frozen meals. Many of them are the same. Huel offers variety BEYOND this. The shake combinations are endless alone.I think I will stick with Huel

Wow!! I’m super impressed.

Update Still love the HUELbut due to PB shortage on Black made me switch but like the Chocolate :slight_smile: down now 58 since I started still chugging along. Still craving the Peanutbutter.

I started Huel Black at the end of May, so I am about a month and a half in. I do shakes for breakfast and lunch, with traditional food for dinner. My breakfast shake is usually mixed with a combination of cold brew concentrate, almond milk, water and frozen fruit. Lunch is the same minus the cold brew. I work out about 4 days a week a mix of cardio and weights. Since I started I am down about 12lbs total. It probably could be more but there have been a few instances like work travel where I don’t take the shakes with me (I have to have mine blended - can’t do the shaking method). Overall I am very pleased with the results thus far. Just a few more lbs and I will be below 200lbs for the first time in about 4-5 years. Overall I feel great - more energy for sure.
