The release of Black Edition has thrown a slight spanner in the works for me because I don’t know what to do for my next order. I’m tempted by the macro split because I’ve heard good things about lower carb consumption; for example satiety is increased with higher protein meals meaning eating fewer calories overall, which I believe is fairly healthy. Plus there’s the fact carbs aren’t essential of course…
Usually I order 14 bags UU and 2 bags Vanilla to get max discount. I mix at a ratio of 1:8 and thats plenty sweet for me. With Black i’d have to have it much sweeter since there is no UU (why?)
I work out (HIIT) a few times a week, and swim every other day. No serious training or muscle building; I just like to exercise to keep fit and happy is all.
Is Black Edition a relatively niche product that Huel has only released in order to satiate demand? Is that demand only from people looking to gain muscle? I would like to know what the Huel nutrition team themselves think of Black’s macros, beyond just that it has been widely requested.
Basically - I see so much literature that points towards these sorts of protein levels being hugely overkill. But yet the demand exists nonetheless (enough for the huel team to create the product). What do these people know that those responsible for suggesting this macro is overkill don’t? It can’t just be a muscle building / active lifestyle thing can it? The ratio’s are too different.
Anyway, v interested to hear people’s thoughts here, Huel team included!
