Huel is food and, like @fakethom points out, you wouldn’t expect a clinical trial on other meals. Huel’s formula is based on science and we regularly lab test as appropriate.
As there are only a few people who consume 100% Huel (as far as I’m aware), enroling people to consume a 100%-Huel diet isn’t easy; indeed, one of the biggest challenges is complience - how will we know they subjects aren’t nibbling on biscuits unless we confine them to a controlled environment which is just not feasible?
However, @RebeccaOfficialHuel is just getting together a bunch of 100%ers for a trial which will involve blood tests, anthropometry and questionnaires. I don’t want to give more details at this point as we’re still discussing what we want. Our aim is for us to have some data by Christmas. Although we don’t need information like this, it is incredibly interesting for us and also for keen Huelers like yourself who raise fair questions like this topic.
I see your point. Your research sounds really interesting and exciting. Quite frankly though, if you are able to gather irrefutable evidence of fat loss, health benefits, and other data that shows the potential of Huel, your business is going to blow up stratospherically. Especially with obesity levels in the U.K. and US right now, which they believe will overtake cancer as the number one nationwide health issue in the U.K. If you can supply studies, despite how difficult they may be to attain, that show Huel can help, you may as well retire to a paradise island of your choice, with the proceeds from the huge government NHS contract that will come.
Re the trials you are running, if you’re still looking for people, I could be interested, as it would possibly be a way of motivating myself to be more regimented in taking it.
Man, medicine is not maths.
And you keep applying a double standard everywhere. What “irrefutable evidence” do you have that EVERYTHING ELSE that you’re eating APART FROM HUEL is not giving you cancer, halitosis and snoring?
The common sense fairy told me that 100% Huel is better than the other option you posted.
Unfortunately we have an obesity crisis due to that. Fast food is too cheap, to easily obtainable and too nutritionally poor…yet so may people opt for it over a HEALTHY balanced diet which would be the optimum.
Thanks for all the info everyone. I think I’ve read everything I can, the huel is coming tomorrow and I’m going to give it a go 100% - at least until I lose some weight! Been thinking about doing this for a while, one reason is that I’ve tried so many times to go vegan and just not managed it, also tried to lose weight so many times before and not managed to keep it off! Maybe this is the answer…
Yeah. And what I hate about the modern “app economy” trend is that they are making it easier (also exploiting workers here, great combo). We are constantly reminded by ads of how easy is to order a burger from your phone while sitting on your couch, not having even to walk a little to go out and get it. And what makes me mad is that I mean, it’s not that difficult to cook a normal plain meal, in our mediterranean diet. It might not be as healthy as other options, like 100% Huel, but at least is better then eating junk food every day.
