I leapt full on into Huel for 2 and a half weeks (with expected consequences) but the most notable side effect was a massive improvement in my mood. I was eating a pretty standard diet before huel not massively healthy but not laden with junk food either - just bad enough to see me gaining weight month in month out.
As soon as I started Huel I had massive improvements in energy, sleep and mood. I was a different person, calmer, far less irritable and happier. Because I had a flight coming up and didnt want to pack diapers so I decided to go back on solid food - immediately my mood deteriorated and I became irritable again. Now back on huel and mood back to fantastic.
My question - how can I isolate what food types are causing my bad mood and plan a solid food diet that maintains the mood benefits I’m seeing from huel. I’m not massively clued up on nutritional issues so any input or advice would be much appreciated.
