I’m well into my third day of Huel use (125g twice per day and a regular evening meal) and am finding the energy release, satiety and general usage excellent, despite the fine layer of dust that covers my kitchen each time I open the bag.
One thing that has disturbed slightly is the movement of one’s bowels. The first day was great, with a single, solid bronze sausage, less than usual, but to be expected with a lower amount of solid food.
Subsequent steamers have been somewhat messier affairs, reminiscent of a hot chili or curry experience, to the point where our downstairs thunder-closet may develop PTSD. Passing wind is now akin to Russian roulette. Now, being a recent father I am adept at dealing with this sort of thing, though usually I have a better view. I was wondering three things:
- Is this a universal experience?
- Does this settle down?
- What’s the the slight “Chili” feel? The most exciting ingredient is peas, without a hint of Habanero.
I apologise wholeheartedly for some of the content, but hope this goes some way to opening the conversation around this topic and putting my mind (bowels) at rest.
