I am a new user and I had my first delivery at the beginning of March. I have used Huel Unsweetened & Unflavoured for a week with no issues, didn’t take it on the weekend and skipped Monday too as I wasn’t at home on Sunday night to prepare it. I started again on Tuesday, as usual, 1 scoop for breakfast with 200ml of milk, a shot of coffee and a banana and 3 scoops for lunch with 40g of Goji berries and half Avocado.
After breakfast, I felt a bit weird but nothing major, after lunch I started to feel pain in my stomach, slowly building up for about 1 hour until it was really strong and I couldn’t just ignore it anymore. So I went to the toilet, tried to see if I had to go but nothing. As I was walking back to my desk I started to feel dizzy and I felt like I was going to pass out, so I reached for some sugar sachets. Had a bit of water with sugar and I was better but the pain was still there and I was a bit shaky.
Went to the toilet again and decided to throw up as I couldn’t stand the pain any longer. I couldn’t. So I 've been walking around the office like a lost soul in pain for about an hour until I felt I was going to throw up, so I went to the toilet, once again, and I threw up.
I felt much better but I was really weak and the pain persisted so I decided to go home where I took some Pepto Bismol and I fell asleep straight away (it was 5 pm), woke up at 9 pm had dinner and went to bed again.
That was last week, after that I thought, wow it can’t be Huel, I have used it for a week and it was fine what the hell! So I gave my body a week to calm down and I tried again today and guess what? Breakfast was fine but after lunch… Same thing! This excruciating pain started about 30 minutes after I finished my Huel and lasted for about 3.5 hours, I am still sore as I am writing this. I had Pepto Bismol with me today so I managed to control the pain and I didn’t throw up.
This is very annoying as I was looking forward to using Huel and now I just can’t! And I am also stuck with a whole unopened bag, if anyone wants it!
Has anyone had a similar experience or can help understand what the issue might be? It’s so weird that with the same exact ingredients it was fine for a whole week and now I can’t take it for one day.
Appreciate any response.
