I was a hueler before but have only just started back on it. I’ve bought myself a bag of the vanilla powder and a bag of the chocolate. I’ve posted my thoughts on the taste of the chocolate in another topic, so won’t bother to do so here, but I was wondering if anybody could offer any clarification on the calories.
When I diet, I’m fairly dependent on MyFitnessPal. I used it before when I was hueling and got great results. According to the app, 3 scoops of huel contain 459 calories. However, the same app tells me that an equivalent shake made using the chocolate powder is 600 calories. I realise they aren’t necessarily going to be exactly the same, but this seems a fair sized difference to me.
Is my information accurate? Anybody able to advise?
I know that you’re right about the scoop thing. I do weigh for my evening shake, but for my breakfast and lunch ones I’m at work and don’t really want to crack out a pair of scales. My colleagues think I’m weird enough for Huelling as it is.
That’s such a simple idea that I have no idea why I didn’t already think of it.
To be fair, I’ll still lose weight fairly steadily even if I go a bit over what I mean to on the calories. I’m 6’3 so allowed a fair amount per day to maintain weight, and according to the app I’m eating between 1200 and 1300 calories a day, which is well under what I need to eat to lose weight.
It’s possible to add products to MFP database as a user as well, right ?
I’m going to place an order in the next few days (change sub date) and have choc in it, if needed
I’ll figure out how to add it (correctly) to MFP and with barcode if possible.
I’m new to the forum and haven’t exactly spent time going through all the old topics. I’ve found a few by searching, but wouldn’t have known to search for scoop size because I didn’t know it was an issue.
