I have used Huel for a couple of months for most days at 1-3 shakes a day. I now want to go full Huel at 100% for various reasons. Time frame is a couple of months. Is there anything I need to consider or keep in mind? Also all advice/feedback is very welcome
If this works well I might stick to it with the occasional snack or meal
It was good. I’m not going to fanboy like some others here do - It matched my previous healthy diet for both energy levels and recovery time following training.
The positives were the convenience and the cost, only £1.50ish per meal and 2 minutes prep time in the Nutri Ninja.
However, if your diet on “real food” sucks, it’d probably be a whole different experience. I did find that my digestion played up a bit though. Think I made a thread on here about it.
Basically, I’d go a few days with only tiny bowel movements, then eventually I’d have one absolutely agonising movement during which “paste” like would be forced out, huge amounts. Unbelievably painful, like one of those day ruining poos where you have to knuckle down in the cubicle, even going as far as removing your pants to get the legs into optimal position. Sweat would begin to build on my brow as I lifted myself into a squat position, hoping the agony would end.
BUT, that hasn’t happened in a long time… All I’ll say is, if what you put in doesn’t come back out, start getting worried…
Honestly, some people have such unreasonable expectations of James & the whole Huel team.
Phil, maybe ask a proctologist in a professional capacity? Expecting a nutritionist to go there is frankly just weird, however good your webcam & sense of balance, though I do have to say, amazing macro photography.
Heyy! Not sure if you’ve read my 100% week thread—for some reason I was VERY tired (a different kind of exhausted than I’m used to, so I noticed it). But many others say the opposite, that they have tons of energy. I found that my sleep quality was great on 100% Huel though!
Found myself craving savoury and the texture of crunch, which was easily sokved by adding Huel granola into my diet. Was a piece of cake after!
