Been a Huel customer for a couple of years now, 2 x Huel Black for Breakfast and Lunch is my usual day with a balanced evening meal and fairly limited snacking. Absolutely loving it!
TLDR - Is consuming x3 HB a day an issue? I feel not, but I wanted to ask around. Now for the background…
Today I’ve started to embark on a strength training journey as I dropped doing this when my son was born 4.5 years ago and it’s time to get back on it.
I need to consume ~3000kcal and ~160g of protein per day to support the x3 sessions I’ll be doing each week to build muscle etc.
The issue I have is that I have an insane number of food intolerances, 50+ in total, which are pretty much the reason why I chose Huel in the first place, because by some miracle it is completely safe for me to eat and saves me having to stress about what to eat!
So, currently I’m getting 1000kcal from the 2xHB, that is with 250ml unsweetened oat milk and 250 water in each one, so that’s a third of my kcal. I’m also getting 80g protein, half what I need.
A decent evening meal with lots of nutrient rich food as well as fruit throughout the day is going to get me close to another 1000kcal and probably another 40g of protein, so two thirds of the way there,
I grab other things throughout the day such as a bowl of porridge and other light snacks, but given how a lot of food is off limits to me, consistently nailing that 3000kcal daily target feels like a bit of a challenge.
Adding a third HB to my diet will be pretty seamless to be honest, and that extra 500kcal and 40g of protein will reduce a lot stress trying to hit this target.
Interested in your thoughts/experiences, cheers!
