Now I eat around 2400-3000 calories a day, and those are coming from Huel. 3 scoops each meal to hit 3.4g leucine, 4 to 5 times a day. The weights are getting heavy now in the gym, so I might have to eat even more. My idea was to increase my calories to 4000, effectively eating 200% Huel. That is double in all the vitamins/minerals/fibers, which might be too much. Protein/carbs/fat is fine. It is the micronutrients and fiber that I am worried about (I have serious smelly farts right now). The other idea was to just fill in the calories by increasing carbs, for instance oats. Or any other carb source, really. So here I am with two ideas how to increase my calories, 200% Huel, or 150% Huel + carbs on the side (preferably which I can mix with the shake in my blender).
Candidates for the carb source:
- White rice
- Tapioca flour?
Some of these are really bad at mixing with. As previous mentioned, the top contender is adding more oats. I am however worried about the increased fiber intake. Other than that, oats are great because of the slow digested carbs, the good fats and protein.
Please help a gym bro out, thanks!
