I had been interested in trying Soylent when I first heard of it, but nothing I read about it made me pull the trigger. There were just enough… off things about it that I just didn’t do it.
I was looking into it again and Huel popped up in my search bar, and some of the nutritional things I wasn’t thrilled with in Soylent were managed in Huel, so I decided to try it.
My girlfriend and I have been using it for about a month now, and I really quite like it. I use the unflavored gluten free stuff, and then throw in a half teaspoon of one of the flavorings and about 1/8 t of stevia (about 2 tablespoons equivalent of sugar), and I’m very much enjoying it!
I’ve always had a problem maintaining my weight, because I am very conscientious at work, follow my diet plan very carefully, and then come home and just am too tired to bother following a plan, and end up eating way too much.
So the plan now is to follow the same diet plan during the day, and then come home and have two servings of Huel in place of dinner most nights. And then on the weekends, maybe allow myself to be a little more free with the calorie consumption.
