I’m going to give it to you straight. I’m probably going to try a competitor. I have largely enjoyed the huel experience, and not just the product (this was probably the least enjoyable bit), but the service, the community have all been really amazing. This isn’t an advertisement for the competitor, I just though the feedback would be useful.
But I had a few growing pains with huel that just never went away. I have mild (and severe ‘episodes’ of) IBS. The growing pains were mainly bad reflux, headaches and my stomach never settling to it properly. It got better, but never settled. And in some cases during episodes of bad IBS they made it so much worse And with 2.2, nothing got better, in fact I’d say some of it got worst.
I’m going to try ‘Solo’, and it’s not something I do lightly. I love the ethos of huel and the head honchos are active on the forum and it feels like a close community. I don’t know if solo is any good, but I need something to help me get back to my old self, powdering, gyming and working and that seems like the best alternative.
When huel 3.0 is out I’m probably going to be the first to try it, because if I can come back to huel, I will. But for now, there is just too many barriers for me. I hope I taste the (strangely nice) earthy goop I once called breakfast and lunch again one day.
