If you weigh 100kg and have a 10% body fat, that means you have 90kg of lean mass and if you’d take the upper limit (no more health benefits after that) of protein per day, which is 2.2g per 1kg of lean body mass. Then you’d get 198g of protein needed per day. 2.2 is already a really high amount, most bodybuilders take 1.5-2g per kg of lean body bass. Normal Huel covers those requirements quite well as someone weighing a lot would also eat more Huel.
There was an interview with Julian linked in the forum lately, where he talked about a fourth product, which would come out soon, maybe around the end of the year. This confused me, as there ARE already 4 products - powder, RTD, bars, granola. So I wondered if it was an old interview from before introducing RTD.
He talked about it being a product for mass market.
But what happens to granola then? Or does it not count? It’s not on the picture with the black powder.
I’m not a nutritionist but surely we need carbs? Why less carbs more protein, is there some benefit to that combination? As far as i can see the only benefit to more protein is for muscle building and the only people who would need that is athletes/body builders. As for the less carbs I’m not sure why that’s beneficial
I’m personally quite interested in this ratio as a meal shake, because I find that I use Huel for approx 1/3 to 1/2 of my daily calories but prefer my other meals to be vegetables and fruits. I am therefore not consuming enough protein for someone that normally leads a fairly active and sporty lifestyle.
I’m in the EU market and tried to add granola to my ongoing powder subscription and I get the error message “This product is not available for subscriptiton”. I already wrote Huel support about it but haven’t still received an answer. Might be a bug as well.
