I have gone from 100g (vanilla) / 500ml to 100g / 400ml which helped with feeling fuller for longer a little. I have increased to 125g / 400ml but I am still feeling hungry by mid-morning.
Where should I go next? 150g / 400ml? Or should I try 150g / 500ml? Any wisdom would be much appreciated.
I am Hueling for convenience, I am having Huel for breakfast and lunch with food in the evening. Alternatively, I sometimes do Huel for breakfast and dinner with food for lunch. Prior to Huel, experience has taught me that if I am able to fill myself up in the morning/lunch, my evening meal is smaller. I find this works well for me and my digestion, as I do not sleep well on a full stomach.
In a good week, I swim 2-4 times per week. One technique (slower session), one fast/fitness, one focusing on endurance/distance and one swim just for fun with no particular focus. On average I swim about 8-10km per week, but this will be gradually increasing over the spring/summer.
I am not trying to gain or lose any weight, just stay fit and healthy. I’d also really like to stay full as I tend to get hangry (hungry/angry, not a good combo!) which makes me really unpleasant to be around. I then tend to snack on pastries/biscuits etc
I must admit it had not crossed my mind to have a second bottle. There is no reason why I cannot give it a go. I am engrained in my thinking that we have breakfast, lunch and dinner. I will try experimenting with a mid-morning bottle. Thanks!
After my experimentation, I have gone back to 500ml water / 100g Huel. The most significant change I made was by accident, rather than design. I have found that the most effective way to full (about 4-5 hours) is to drink plenty of water during/after Huel consumption. I have found that about 200ml-300ml water seems to do the trick. Prior to increasing my water intake, I was only staying full for a few hours. I only increased my water intake because I noticed that I seemed to be dehydrated, and this was affecting my exercise performance.
Thanks for all your suggestions! And I hope this thread will be of use to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation. Also, I don’t know whether my body has now just adjusted, or whether it is the water, but my Huel farts are waaaaay less frequent now. Happy days!
