Thanks for the ideas Dan but I disagree with the premise of your disagreement being that ‘simply chewing’ a solid food (like a lunchtime ham and cheese sub or a quick baked potato with tuna) makes it “the same as Huel” regarding water content, as the vast majority of prepared Hule water as I was saying. Maybe ‘simply chewing it with over half a pint of water in your mouth’ would make it ‘the same as Huel’ regarding the liquids diluting enzymes point I was discussing.
Secondly, consuming a Huel in 45 minutes is both more inconvenient than real food (missing a main reason for buying Huel for most people)… where you can eat a salad box in 5 or 10 minutes easily. Huel would become an unbearable chore… imagine consuming the 5 of the standard 3 scoop 450 cal hules I need to maintain 2250 of my 2500 cal daily intake by taking your 30 mins per 2 scoops… that would mean my 5 hules would take an epically laborious 3 HOURS AND 45 MINUTES of sipping, carrying and distraction from workflow to nurse to completion haha Massively impractical given real life.
Not to mention highly un-satiating, as I, like many others, find it necessary to have the feeling of something in my stomach; and for well documented biological reason. Tiny sips of liquid spread sparse over 45 minutes will not cut it.
On a different note, the couple of hurlers who recommended omeprazole… thank you. I’ve been taking it morning and evening and indeed the acid is gone. I’m now slugging my Huel down in less than a minute which leaves me feeling like I’ve actually eaten a meal
So all is good, I’ve been starting to work out too so I will ‘supplement’ my Hule with a food when my calorific requirement hits 3k.
Thanks again for the recommendations, see you all around.
