Treatment, money, diet
This is not an ad! but has anyone ever considered meal replacement shakes like Huel as a way to avoid bad foods? I’ve just bought some and wonder what you all think about things like this

hmmm, good question , how many times are you planning to take it daily ? If often i would make sure to get V&M to give my body what it needs , just my thoughts not that i am taking such a shake.

'meal replacement shake' no not for me. Just reading that makes me itchy.

Yeah that’s a fair point peter. I think I’m going to give it a shot and see how it goes. Probably gonna add loads of tumeric to the shake and have loads of veggies on the side.
And Jen, you’re probably right but it’s always worth an experiment I guess😬

Andy just remember when you use turmeric lways add black pepper so your body dets the best out off the turmeric. Keep us posted

I think Andy if it's a good brand why not. Give it a go. Can't be any worse than boxed pasta, bread, premade anything, wine, burger joints. LOL. I use a great protein powder in my homemade shakes, which is processed, but gets my own spin into it with what I add. Seems to be ok and no reaction.

Hi Andy, I have read a few times about Huel in the media. I haven't tried it though! I would think if you can tolerate all of the ingredients, then it would be great. Do you tolerate oats and rice (non-gluten grains?) Do you tolerate thickeners like guar gum? If yes then you're on to a winner! Vegan, nutritionally balanced, environmentally friendlier than current food production methods. Having said that, maybe not the variety we are used to with conventional foods. Personally, I wouldn't take a vitamin as well as Huel. It is designed to be already sorted with everything humans need. In fact. What am I saying. I need to get me some Huel!

Hey guys, bit of an update if you’re still interested.. I don’t seem to have any noticeable changes but I’ve only had it occasionally. Tastes pretty good (even when I add pepper and tumeric). Obviously everyone is different though so may not have the same results for you

Yes definitely interested Andy, thanks for sharing! What does it actually taste like?

Theres loads of different flavours available I’ve got the ‘improved vanilla’ version but I’ve heard the mocha is pretty good too. There’s a slight chalkiness to the texture but I don’t have a blender which might explain why I have that problem 😊

Hi Andy. I have tried a few meal replacement shakes but I am not a fan of it. Most contain Gluten and those who are Gluten free, still makes me itch. Not only that, One needs to eat solid food. Our body needs it for our colon to work. The vitamins are synthetic and I think that is why I itch. It can make inflammation and indigestion worse. For some people it does work but remember, not all of us are the same. Nonetheless, I wish you good luck and please let us know how it works for you. Keep well. :)
