I’ve been using Huel on-and-off for the past six months or so and think it’s great. As someone who can work around a 9-10 hour day, plus commuting and then hitting the gym afterwards, Huel is an absolute godsend for sheer convenience alone. I’m happy to brush aside questioning looks from colleagues for the efficiency and nutrition this brings to my active lifestyle; I was waiting for something like this for a long time…little did I know the answer was right here!
Currently I’m at about 70% in terms of overall diet; with a shake every 3-4 hours throughout the day starting at 06:00 all the way through to dinner (actual food, with my partner). I currently mix in three scoops of Huel with one scoop of Optimum Nutrition protein powder to increase my protein intake to around 45-50g per serving. As a result, I need to keep a tub of the ON and a bag of Huel both under my desk at work, and my kitchen at home, and pre-mix shakes for those post-gym cravings (when protein absorption levels spike).
Given that a large number of posters on here either seem to use Huel for athletic reasons, or have posted about mixing protein powders into their Huel; would you consider offering a high(er)-protein version of the product itself? No more having to double-up on powders, no more manual blending, and 100% of the revenue to yourselves.
Several powder brands offer Lean (low-cal), Regular (med-cal) and Mass (high-cal) versions of their protein supplements to better suit their fitness goals, and I’ve seen topics on here asking for a low-cal version of Huel as well. I would love to cut ON out completely and have one bag for everything.
Anyway, keep up the good work Julian & the Huel Team!
