I’m having really bad reflux exclusively linked to huel that is not settling.
I’ve been using Huel for months and been putting up with quite severe reflux symptoms, blaming my general diet/coffee intake. I didn’t quite realise how bad it had gotten until I went on holiday for a fortnight and had a life completely devoid of it! Despite eating significantly more fatty/protein rich foods and drinking more coffee I had absolutely NO reflux. To boot I’ve been much less bloated and had more regular motions. I’d even started taking regular Omeprazole and required frequent Rennies that I’ve quit.
I’d reduced my Huels to two scoops and I’d already changed how I drink it based on advice from this forum I came across a while ago. I have 2 scoops in about 700ml of water and drink it over ~half an hr while I commute. I have another shake in the afternoon. I’ve been doing this for the past several months.
Should I just give up on Huel as ‘not for me’? To be honest, I was trying to ride it out to see if I would ‘adjust’ as two scoops isn’t really doing it for me anyway. I’ve lost weight with all other meals constant due to losing the 300 kcals across the day. Are there any alternatives? I’m reticent to return to oats + whey as tbh that didn’t really suit me either. This fit’s my lifestyle perfectly and I’ve become quite reliant on it for on call shifts but I’m not prepared to go back to the reflux symptoms. I’m also a subscriber so have a stack of it to get through…
