Hi there fellow Huelians,
Like many, I LOVE this pretty little powdery mass of good nutritionals. Like many, though, come evening time I turn into a fiery dragon spitting fire from the wrong end. It’s not as cool as it sounds in fairy tales, I’ll tell you that much.
My diet is normally quite balanced, I’m Italian so I’m used to eat simple, fresh, non-overly-spicy stuff; I follow a nutritionist-powered 2.2k a day deal, slightly over-indexed on proteins vs carbs. And tons of dem steamed veggies. I’m one proud member of the IBS club, so I need to keep an eye and what I swallow.
I’ve started with 125g of Huel once a day for lunch, upgraded to 2 a day (lunch + snack) and boy oh boy, as soon as I start drinking the 2nd, the symphony starts and it starts with my stomach, there is something that triggers unusual digestion patterns right away. Fibres (and sometimes legumes, but def not peas, I eat loads of them) have always been doing things to me - e.g. when I overindulge on fibre-heavy breakfast cereals or eat those black beans spaghetti - but never ever remotely close to what Huel does to me.
I’ve now reverted to one Huel a day, which I’m not happy about but hey, but my tummy simply refuses to adapt to it. I’ve read other threads, some people get used to it, some don’t. What I know is that I am not particularly keen to force my body to accept something that he doesn’t really want in the first place.
All this wall of text to contextualize my question: given a balanced, healthy diet includes tons of fibres anyway, are you ever going to introduce a low-fibre version of Huel for the people that have this issue - especially considering it seems there’s a fair amount of them?
