    I've been using Joylent (70/30) for a few months. Now called Plenny. It's basically just an oaty sweetened shake with vitamins and a few tweaks. Tastes decent to me. Water + powder + swirl + shake, consume, clean - 700 calories sorted at a cost of 1.67eur.

    I was put off Huel due to various negative online comments.

    28 days, 1 bag unflavoured, 1 bag vanilla.
    I've got Toffee/Raspberry/Vanilla flavouring drops that I use for protein so I figure I can try the plain with those. I also got the sample pack of flavouring (it was £1.50, so why not)

    Tried my first vanilla this morning, tastes better than protein powder to be fair. Bit too sweet though so I'll definitely drop the ratio to 2:1 vanilla to unflavoured.

    Had it for breakfast and definitely feell full so will see how it goes.

    Pro tip: don't get the 'small' free T-shirt, it's very tight!

    I found the same with regards to protein powders.

    What mixture did you use for your first one then?

    Re: Huel - The 'nutritionally complete food' has anyone tried it?

    Straight up 3 scoops of vanilla with the recommended 570ml of water total, i might have added more water overall though as I was getting small lumps. Lumps aren't unpleasant though as it's just oaty.

    I can see with less vanilla and maybe 600+ ml of water it'd be easier to use as a drink like you mentioned.

    About ration packs? Erm, let me think about that ..... NO. (*)

    Nah. Salmon and cream cheese salad. The salad bit (a lettuce leaf and some grated carrot) is there so I can kid myself it's a healthy choice.


    To the OP - can't help. The name made me think gruel rather than hurl, but the result was the same. Salmon comments aside, I am a smoothie fan provided it's home made when I get to choose the ingredients, and proportions.

    I found the lumps a bit of an issue too at first, just learn to shake it more and i found i sometimes got better results without the plastic...guard thing...

    Is that not the point?
    Nice and tight, to show off how ripped and swole and jacked and yoked you have become, just from eating (drinking?) nothing but Huel™??!!

    "sun's out..."!

    2:1 vanilla to unflavoured is definitely the way to go. I tried the rhubarb and custard flavouring, blah!

    Interestingly I've been having it for breakfast and I'm not getting hungry at lunch, I'm just wanting the taste /texture of food instead.

    All good for me,having it as lunch most work days, no gastric problems at all. Flavour packets are rank (IMO) so I'm sticking with a 2:1 vanilla to unflavoured mix.

    Lost a couple of kilos (not that i needed to) and I do feel full afterwards, i just miss the texture and flavours of a 'real' lunch.

    I'll definitely be buying a second lot

    Has anyone tried the Huel bars?
    Does it have that bird food/flapjack type taste?
