After a certain point and at certain levels of sensitivity, adding more water becomes a bit much.
I like my intake at 400 milliliter to 400 calories, and as thin as watery possible. Almost anything past that point of thickness and I’m out, regardless of drink. It’s pretty given that the portion of people who can’t drink thick liquids might be a minority, but we’re around.
So I’ll add more water, right? To about near double than what I used to? Because 600mil doesn’t cut it where 400mil used to.
First off, the shaker is only so big. Second, I drink 4-5 or in periods 6-7 or more shakes a day.
To even make it palatable - to me - I’d have to go well beyond shaker capability. At five times a day that’s well over 3.5 liters a day and a hassle. So no. At more than five times a day, that’s waaaay more water than I’m comfortable with. And to imagine I used to drink the nutrionally exact same stuff on far less water than is required today…
In the end I’ve opted to change provider, to brands that can supply 400 calories on a far lesser amount of total mass. My bladder thanks me.
And so on and so forth, yada yada.
To just “add more water” is pretty much the exact same argument as “add less water”. Only in this case, I’m being pushed towards adding more water and simultaneously reaching the point of quitting Huel. Degrees of palatability apply.
The portion of drinkers that can either stomach, enjoy or prefer the artificial thickness - and it is manufactured - have been showed to outnumber us that don’t. It is not an unpopular opinion per se, but any internet venue will gather the eh… vocal.
Where else are we going to whine and whinge about the good old days of yore?
