I first tried Huel last year. I used to be a protein shake drinker and din’t want to go back. However, my friend said such great things about huel, so I had to try.
To really see if huel works for me, I did 2 weeks of nothing but huel. I’m used to doing cleanses and increase of times going to the bathroom was nothing new to me. What i did notice the first couple of days was that my face was really oily. I thought that it was a bad side affect of huel. However, it was really my body discarding all the excess oil out of my body. After a couple of more days, I noticed that my energy level spiked, my outlook on life was better and I felt positive. I was a huel believer. I kept one bag at work and one at home. Of course, I can’t just live on huel alone. I decided to huel for lunch monday - friday, and eat food the other times. Which means, I didn’t need to order as much huel as I did before.
At some point, my stomach started hurting. I always thought it was the spicy food I ate or maybe I ate to much during a meal. I had finally finished my remaining huel at work and on to a new order. Now, I have one bag of huel at home and one at work from the same order.
I realized that my stomach pain was coming from huel. I don’t know if it’s the specific batch or because of the change in formula. However, my coworkers notice that I’m in pain during the work day.
I’ve never had this kind of pain drinking huel before. Has anyone else had this issue? I drink the unflavored unsweetened version.
