Has anyone NOT had awful gas when starting?


#1

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.

Have faith, new users!

I just started on Monday and I’ve had no gas and no unexpected toilet trips.

I’ve generally replaced one meal a day so far.

I hope you get on ok

No problems here. Bit burpy and sometimes indigestion if I down my 3 scoops too quickly…


#4

None of that at ll. I started on Monday and now it’s Thursday and no problems at all.


#5

No more than usual, lol

Seriously though, I started two Huel meals per day mixed in with my green smoothies, 5 days ago. No problems. :slight_smile:


#6

I never had any problem with it and I have the most sensitive stomach in the world.


#7

No problems for me either, starting just by replacing breakfast. Now happily on 2 meals a day, most days.


#8

I’ve never had a problem.


#9

Never had a problem other than Vanilla seemed to really upset my tummy, I’m hoping to slow wean my way back into Vanilla by mixing it with UU.

After a couple of weeks it will settle down :dash::dash:


#11

I’ve never had any problems, but my diet was already on point previously, so it’s not like I suddenly added loads of fibre. :slight_smile:


#12

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.


#13

I’ve been on/off Huel for about a year and on my 2nd day of full huel (trying to lose some weight). I’ve had zero issues down there. I know everyone is different but it nevers affects me like that


#14

I was pretty gassy for the first 2-3 days, after that no issues at all.

I think it was just the body adjusting.


#15

Always gas with huel and i’ve been doing it a year…


#16

I didn’t notice any difference in my personal emissions.


#17

In my first two weeks my farts smelt the worst they ever have, but it settled after that and I’d say I’m back at my usual level of farting an pungentness!


#18

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.


#19

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!

I’ve found I’ve less gas - and for me (and my other half) this is a real advantage! I’m sure my gastro-intestinal health is better.
