My previous 2 posts unnecessarily complicated things. I’ll try again.
- Establishing what 1 “unit” of a Huel meal would be for you.
First, using your particular brand of Soy milk look for how many calories per 100ml. A typical example might be 33 calories per 100ml.
This works out as 0.33 calories per ml.
The Huel to Water ratio is usually about 1 part Huel to 5 parts water. For Soy milk it might be the same or it might be slightly more or less but assuming 5 parts is acceptable to you.
Multiply 0.33 by 5 which gives us 1.65 calories per 5ml of Soy milk.
So we’ve established that a “unit” consists of 1g of Huel and 5ml of Soy milk. 5ml of Soy milk is about 1.65 calories ( it might be different for your brand of Soy milk) and Huel is about 4 calories per 1g.
1 “unit of Huel” would then be 5.65 calories.
Huel comprises 71% of those calories. (4 calories divided by 5.65 calories)
Now that we’ve established all that we can use for any future calculations.
- Once you’ve worked out your daily calorie intake and taken off how much you are having for your evening meal you can work out how much Huel and Soy milk a day and for breakfast and lunch.
Let’s say you decide on 1400 calories a day of which 800 will come from your evening meal. That leaves 600 calories to come from Huel. Let’s say you evenly split it into two 300 calorie servings.
Breakfast = 300 calories. We’ve established that in a “unit” of Huel meal 71% of those calories come from Huel.
300 calories x 71% = 213 calories. 4 calories = 1g Huel. 213 calories divided by 4 = 53.25g of Huel.
Multiply the grams of Huel by 5 to give the amount of soy milk needed. 53.25 x 5 = 266.25ml of Soy milk.
But let’s round down and check that.
53g of Huel @ 4 calories per gram = 212 calories.
266ml of Soy milk @ 0.33 calories per ml = 88.78 calories
212+88.78 = 299.78 calories.
Work out what a “unit” consists of using your brand of Soy milk.
Work out the percentage that Huel contributes.
Decide on your calorie intake for the day and how that will be distributed amongst your meals.
For each Huel meal multiply the allotted calories by the establishes percentage and then divide by 4 to find out grams of Huel.
Multiply that number by 5 to work out how many ml of Soy Milk.
