With the new release of Huel Black edition, I was wondering what is the purpose of it?
I know that a healthy diet must have the right proportion of all 3 basic macronutrients (protein, fat, and carbs), so I’d like to know when are we supposed to use Huel Black Edition?
Will it be a great idea to use it after (or before) a long workout? Will it help to recover from an intense muscle training session (i.e. weight gain programs)? Or it’s more indicated for cardio/fat loss sessions?
I’d like to hear the thoughts from fitness/nutrition experts on when is the right time to drink Black Huel (instead of White one).
I’ve been thinking about this. Regular Huel was designed to provide your recommended macro split, if you eat it as 100% of your diet. But few people do that. I, for example, use Huel for close to 100% of my diet, but some days my nutrition is 50% Huel and 50% beer and crisps. For those days where half of my diet is very carb-heavy, it might be good to swap my regular Huel for low-carb Huel.
I would like to hear from someone who isn’t a crisp-addled idiot though.
I intend to use Huel black in conjunction with Huel white. Usually Huel white is my staple breakfast and lunch with my other meals being protein shakes, pub meals, soups, alcohol. (I am not a vegan or vegetarian and so I still consume meat in my diet albeit in a reduced amount). On the days I weightlift I tend to mix UU with protein powder. I can use Huel black on these days; similarly I can use Huel post squash matches and post cycle training. I can also use it as a carb light meal in my everyday diet.
Huel is a complete meal in powdered form. My take on Hiel black is like having a variation on a complete meal. For example I love Shepards Pie. Some days I can make it with more lamb or leaner lamb and less potato. It’s still a Shepards pie but the deficiency can be made.up with an increase in another realtor example bread and a low.protein soup. Same with Huel especially jen considering the RTD and bars used in conjunction.
Everyone is an individual and so individual requirements differ and so does balanced nutrition for everyone when considered in this individual basis. I applogise for the verbosity of this post.
I would use Huel Black if my day is very carb heavy. Its protein content is insanely high so on a normal day, it wouldn’t replace my breakfast or lunch like normal Huel does. Though, in the very rare case I eat only crisps, it is a good backup.
So help me understand… So for a Jo bloggs like me, would I be best to stick to white? I have tried both white and black and both are delicious. The only difference to me is the £5 more for 2 bags of black. Is it just a personal preference or flavour thing?
