I just drank my first meal at lunch, and I’m stuck here reading horror stories about how I’m 90% likely to poop myself sometime in the next 24 hours. Or to gas everyone I know.
Has anyone started with Huel and just been okay? No awful gas, no razor thin dashes to the bathroom?
I could do with some reassurance!!
EDIT - One week in I’m doing fine. I’ve replaced my lunch at work every week with Huel, but I still have a regular meal for breakfast (normally toast and eggs) and for dinner.
I had quite a good diet before - I never measured anything, but was vaguely aware of my intake and tried to keep a balance of red and white meat, carbs and vegetables. I cooked for myself every night. Maybe that helped. I’m not sure how I’d fare if I’d switched from a junk food heavy diet.
Anyway, no bad gas and no loo problems, and I normally have an incredibly sensitive stomach, so I’m happy.
When I first tried Huel, I went cold turkey into a Huel only diet for two weeks. I experienced zero problems whatsoever. Some of Huels competitors did cause me problems though, presumably due to crap quality ingredients.
This was my biggest concern about starting huel aside from hunger, but I dived into 100% huel a week ago right off the bat and my gut feels great. No gas or bloating at all. Coming from an unhealthy diet I expected the worst but I almost never have any sort of wind at all now, which is a marked difference really.
During my first few days with Huel, I had it for one meal as suggested along with my food which I kind of put too much oyster sauce in it. And it was the time that I particularly smell oyster sauce quite often because I gas very often!
