Equivalent fresh food to 500g huel

I am getting a bit of stick from my sceptical family for using huel. I’m trying to explain that huel is the way forward it would be easier if iknew How much fresh food I would need to eat to get all the nutrients that are in my daily serving of huel?


You are simply eating oats, peas and seeds with a multi vitamin

Huel is not a miracle food packed with all vitamins and minerals

Its is simply the foods i have listed above, blended together and a vitamin and mineral complex added to it


The benefits of Huel are:

  • Convenience
  • Long shelf life
  • Balanced macro and micro nutrients with each meal/snack
  • Easier to digest than solid food
  • Less waste

Disadvantages of Huel:

  • You might get bored of it
  • People might think you’re weird

Benefits of “normal” food:

  • More enjoyable/varied eating experience
  • People are less likely to think you’re weird

Disadvantages of “normal” food:

  • Takes longer to prepare healthy meals/snacks
  • If you go for convenience, this may end up being junk food
  • Even with healthy foods, it can be difficult to know whether you are getting the right balance of macro and micro nutrients.
  • Many foods may be lower in nutrients than they used to be due to the way they are farmed and transported. So even if you eat loads of fresh fruits and vegetables, you may not be getting as many nutrients as your grandparents would have got.

Eat proper food not shakes end off really .

What a useful post. Learn to use punctuation & the difference between off & of. Now go away.

Edit: two points to add…

  1. I’m a hypocrite
  2. Don’t feed the troll

@IcyElemental Yeah! I was thinking precisely the same thing. Yeah…just gonna join up here to dish out some trolling

And Rice and coconut. And the multivitamin is a very precisely engineered one with lots of key phytonutrients chucked in there to increase the absorption and bioavailability of the whole setup.

I’m all for an understated approach, but don’t miss things out just to be pithy sir.

I had the same resistance based on no factual information whatsoever. After nearly a year of Huel she doesn’t have a leg to stand on now.

There becomes a point in life where you have to do what you want to do. If you are happy with what you see, try it.


You don’t have to explain anything to anyone. I’ve got about half a dozen or so people in my immediate life and work into Huel just by answering their questions(what’s that? It’s a complete powdered food in a drink with a complete range of vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins and good carbs/the easiest way I’ve found to add a couple thousand calories to my diet!), and by gaining the results.

Granted, Huel coincides with weight lifting for me and is genuinely giving me the best results I’ve ever gotten. It’s also not a surprise in the work environment because they can see my productivity is going up.

Apart from when I’m on this forum, obviously. :grin:
