There’s plenty of people looking for a way to lose weight. They struggle with cooking healthy meals, but couldn’t you theoretically just measure this stuff out to the appropriate caloric intake and just do that every day? Why bother cooking stuff you don’t even like as a lot of people seem to report? A lot of people complain “healthy food tastes bad,” so wouldn’t they rather just consume something that tastes okay and gets the job done rather than force themselves to eat meals they don’t even enjoy? Cooking a meal takes way more energy. And so does figuring out if you’re getting a proper balance of vitamins and minerals and whatnot. With Huel, most of the work is done for you from my understanding. Just do the initial math of how many calories you need, drink that much per day, and unless you consume something else, you’re golden.
And I get it, cravings are a thing. But like you could just drink Huel most of the time and then, as a treat, eat something else you like to satisfy your cravings (remember to factor it in to your daily intake), and it would work. So like if it were Thanksgiving for example, you can give yourself a break. You don’t HAVE to miss out on the social aspect of eating. Have a normal meal sometimes. It’s not all or nothing. But just from experience I eat most meals by myself at home anyway so it’s not a huge issue and I would only rarely have to make exceptions.
So Huel seems to solve so many problems. It lessens one’s daily workload so much and it even costs a bit less than a normal diet (in my case anyway) if you do the math. I don’t understand why it isn’t more widespread. Am I missing something here? For context I am new, I just ordered my first batch, but just in theory I don’t understand why something like this wouldn’t be incredibly popular. Thoughts?
