Hi everyone, this is my first post so I would appreciate your feedback.
My son (who is a training martial artist) recommended huel (black version) , mainly as he will get all the nutrients he needs and recommended it to me . I have just turned fifty , healthy but not an avid fan of exercise. Due to lockdown have become a little lazy with eating so decided to give huel a try (black version) .
I have been consuming both the strawberry and salted caramel versions once a day at lunch time , drinking a huge amount of water ( due to being thirsty ) and eating the rest of the day with cereal , plenty of fruit , yoghurt and salads. I have really enjoyed the huel and look forward to it for my lunch meal.
Yesterday I didn’t consume any huel ( as I am awaiting a new delivery so thought I would have it every other day so I didn’t run out) , so instead of huel we had a healthy freshly cooked Thai tapas at lunch time. Late afternoon I consumed half a punnet of red grapes and early evening fruit and nuts , along with both still and sparkling water. Around 3 hours later I got stomach cramps but wasn’t overly painful , a few hours after that I felt the need to go to the toilet and was on there for a good hour as well as throwing up …. Extremely painful stabbing pains in my stomach , back and upper legs and a headache, no temperature but unable to pick myself up from the bathroom floor. I’m not a sicky person , so for me to throw up something didn’t agree with me. I felt that bad my partner nearly called an ambulance . This sounds awful but what I threw up was not like the usual but a concoction of the nuts I consumed and the strawberry huel from the day before.
This morning I’m feeling queasy, very delicate with a churning stomach but a lot better than the early hours.
I really enjoy the black version of huel but am concerned it is a reaction , any feedback , advice etc would be greatly appreciated. Should I carry on with it ? Try a different version ? I am also looking to lose around 14lb in weight .
Many thanks for your input all x
