Crash after drinking Huel?

Been drinking Huel for almost a week now but can’t help but notice that I’ve been having a crash consistently. It’s not as intense as a sugar crash I’d say but I do feel a bit drowsy after 20 minutes of consuming Huel that lasts for about an hour.

I usually do 3 scoops of Huel and sometimes add Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard whey protein to the mix for breakfast and dinner.

Does anyone else feel the same way? I love Huel, its formula and how much time I save with it but I’m not sure if this crash is something I could deal with everyday.

Have you tried skipping the whey?

If you are allergic to milk proteins, even a mild one, you could be having a reaction to the whey.

Even if that’s not the case, you can eliminate possible causes one thing away a time.

You’re kinda describing the usual mild fatigue that many people feel after consuming a significant meal of any consistency. Body reroutes some more blood and resources into digestion, reducing blood to other areas of the body. Isn’t this just “the itis” ?


We haven’t heard much of this claim before–hard to tell with individual body types. Maybe skip the whey–Huel has so much protein in it already. Be sure that you’re hydrated as well!
