Okay title is a bit overkill, just wanted to give a heads up to any regular Huelers (is this what we call it or is it something more catchy?) I drink Huel for most my meals Monday to Friday, and eating regular meals some evenings and most meals on weekends.
Next bit concerns digestion and bodily functions just so you know to expect it:
Recently spent 4 days abroad eating a lot of Spanish food and man did my gut flora get a good shaking up. Bowel movements have been normal, then and since, but I’ve had some pretty killer stomach cramps and I’ve been feeling sick all week (I did however drink a LOT of booze so the latter could be that). By sick I mean that gastric reflux type of nausea that just kind of stays with you for hours at a time.
Getting back into Huel settled my stomach at first but I’ve been extremely windy for the last few days lol. All this yoyoing is clearly not agreeing with me. Looking forward to things settling down when I’m back to regularly Huelling (Hueling? And do we even call it that?)
Anyway yeah it may just be me - just thought I’d share ahead of summer, maybe we will hear some similar stories from others, and learn to pack a bag of the good stuff in our suitcase or something. I for one won’t be risking any “withdrawal” symptoms again haha. Anyone else had a hard time after having a break from Huel?
PS it is my understanding there is no dependency on Huel and hence no such thing as “withdrawal” in this context, however Huel has been shown to introduce changes to the gut flora and hence abrupt changes in diet could cause noticeable effects such as those described above
