I actually am not experiencing any digestive side effects. When I eat some other foods, I get heart palpitations as soon as I eat and I don’t know why, but not with Huel. It really fills me up. I would probably be mostly full with two of the 400 cal shakes and a small snack. If I decided that I was going to go 100% and not have any snacks at all, I would probably have three of the shakes. This is actually less than my calorie amount. Are used an online calculator and it said that I would need 1700 cal a day, but I wouldn’t mind losing some weight, so if I feel full before my calorie amount, I will take it. I have a bottomless stomach, so if it became very important that I make sure to have my entire calorie amount, then I could still have more if that makes sense. Actually, now that I have the different scoops, doing the 400 cal serving is better for me because the larger serving was making me feel really really full. Especially if you drink water or coffee after it like I do so that it can expand in your stomach, it really fills you up. However, I am a woman and I am very short, so what makes me full might not be the same for you. When you have it though, I would say to drink a shake or full of water after it so that it can expand in your stomach, and wait like 20 minutes before you decide to have more because it can really hate you, and you don’t want to be so full that you feel sick. I had two of them in a row before and it did that to me. It’s like how you feel if you ate way way way way way too much. I was like, I’m still hungry, so I’ll have another one. Then just as I finished the other one, the first one hit me, and then a while after that, the second one hit me, and then I was really full. It lasts a long time too. I would say that it can keep me full for around four or five hours. I start to feel a little bit hungry before bed, I’m not going to eat anything because I’m just going to sleep anyways and I won’t even notice when I’m sleeping. I tried muscle milk before, and I did not find that feeling at all to give you an idea. I just use a Metal blender ball in my shaker and it is great. I do not have a blender and I’m not going to get one because I don’t make a lot of money and they are expensive. In addition, they are loud, they are hard to clean, and I have a tiny kitchen with limited counterspace. My coffee maker, my microwave, and my crockpot are already taking up the entire counter. I don’t use the crockpot that much anymore, but I’m keeping it because I bought it, and it won’t fit in any of my cupboards, and I’m not about to keep it on the floor where it is going to take up space there, so it has to stay on the counter. Plus, the blender blades will be really annoying to have to clean. Plus, you have to plug it in and it is just really annoying just to make a shake. I don’t even know how much of an impact it really would have. I like the texture though. Like even if I’m having a smoothie, I don’t want it to be completely smooth. I want it to have little chunks of fruit in it and things. Or like I would enjoy an Eminem Mc flurry a lot more than I would enjoy a milkshake. Plus, plenty of people are now drinking things like overnight oats and they never complain about the texture. This is an actual food, so you have to expect that. People keep saying that the texture comes from the flaxseed, but I think there’s so little flaxseed in there that that probably isn’t the case. I think it more likely comes from the oats. The only thing I don’t like is that earthy aftertaste, but if I just add a few spoons of Greek yogurt or add some lemon juice to my shake, that fixes it. I like to add the yogurt though because it makes it a little bit more creamy. It also doesn’t add that many more calories. Like for the 400 cal one, I would say to add 2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt and that’s really all you need. A lot of people keep talking about their stools and the fact that they are passing gas and all of this stuff, but that has not happened to me. If it does to you, just take a probiotic and it should clear up. There is a good one called new rhythm probiotic that I use and it is pretty cheap. You can also do some fermented foods, but that adds calories, and you don’t really know what bacteria you are getting. Certain strains have been scientifically proven to do certain things, so you can look at the problems you are having and get one with the strains that you need. Huel doesn’t have these because it would raise the cost of the product, the probiotics might not even stay alive, and research is in its infancy in addition to the fact that different people need different ones. Also, if you get one, make sure that yours has good ratings because some manufacturers will just put them in a supplement without making sure that they can actually stay alive. Another thing you can do is you can get yogurt that is in Riched with probiotics and take a bit each day or put a bid in your shake. Maybe that is why I haven’t had as many problems because even though I don’t actually take a probiotic in pill form, the yogurt I add to my shake actually is probiotic inRiched. And also, don’t and just too many probiotics or you will get bloated or have diarrhea. The bacteria and most probiotics will not permanently colonize your digestive tract, so you only need them to correct a problem like I will take the new rhythm ones if I am having a problem where my stomach is constantly hurting a lot or something is wrong with my stool. Then, when I am back to normal, I don’t need it anymore. It probably won’t harm you to take it every day, but it would just be more expensive and probably not worth it. The fermented foods do you have larger doses and more strains and their survival is actually better, but the problem is that we don’t know what all of those do and so you don’t really know exactly what you are getting if that makes sense. Plus, since these fermented foods I’m talking about are pasteurized and are either just homemade or produced locally, The bacteria in the product can vary from batch to batch depending on the season and the temperature and a lot of other things.
