So I have tried Huel for about 2 weeks and I think I am done. For some reason it just doesn’t work with my body. I think it’s a really good product, but something about it just doesn’t work for me. What’s weird is I can eat anything and not feel sick etc, but with Huel I had weird symptoms every day, which I will list below (in no particular order). I was taking about 750 to 1000 of Huel a day.
I get a little dizzy every time I drink it, nothing too crazy but definitely a little “buzz”
About 2 hours after taking it I get really bloated. Sometimes pretty uncomfortable too. And let’s say the breeze is a little stinky!
I need to wake up for a pee during the night like 2 to 3 times. To be fair I have always been a 1-pee a night person, but it definitely got worse on Huel.
I get some form of diarrhea every single day. This ranged from a little bit that didn’t really affect me to quite a lot/out for the night.
I get really dry skin and cracked lips. I ate an orange today and it stung my lips really badly.
I’ve been getting some minor leg cramps. I work out tons, and haven’t changed my regime, but I am getting some cramp just standing up or stretching. I only normally cramp after really long exercise, like 5 hours on a bike! But I am getting minor cramps all of the time. I thought it was because I am thirsty (same for the dry skin/lips).
The first few times I took it, I was really hungry quite soon after. But as others suggested, this got better for me over time. However I am not sure it’s because I got used to the increased amount of fiber like others have suggested. I think it’s because I have also been on a reduced calorie diet during this time; I think my body just got used to consuming less food/calories.
So this just doesn’t work for me, I really tried. I think if this works for you, then fantastic.
