    Huel

    How does everyone feel about Huel? Its a powdered food which claims to have all macro and micro nutrients and can replace all food.

    If it seems too good to be true... it usually is.

    I'd rather consume whole foods than use replacements to meet my nutritional needs.
    It's about progress, not perfection.

    I'm not an expert when it comes to most aspects of life; sometimes, I have no idea what I'm doing. The more I learn, the more I can do, and the more I can pay it forward and help others.

    I was planning to replace all my food with this, replace air with canned oxygen, and replace water with freeze dried H2O. I'm sick of all this stuff provided by nature.

    Get the dehydrated water. Lasts longer and takes up less space.

    Let's be a little bit more open-minded here

    I negotiate contracts all day and I love bodybuilding so I have to find ways to gain time !

    This seems to be a great solution, just have a look at what you get per day :

    i21.servimg.com/u/f21/15/38/61/35/new_la10.jpg

    1 week = 14,000 calories. ​28 meals at 500 cals each, this comes in 2 x 1.74kg pouches. Cost per meal is £1.60

    I don't know any cheaper way to get this 150g of proteins per day while eating healthy and having all the other nutrients.

    My weight is 85-88 kg so that means I would need 200g proteins per day (I am far from that at the moment, I must be around 150g) and this product already offers 150g ! So if you had shaker time right after training and maybe one between two meals it's perfect !

    My main problem here are calories, I am afraid 500 calories per meal won't do it because I started bodybuilding quite skinny (72 kg) and I am now 86kg but I need to eat a lot to maintain this.

    I would really like to replace 3 of my 4 meals with this ...

    Yea things arent always what they seem. The reason its cheap? Look at the ingredients list. Of course its cheap when its made from cheap crap. Better off just buying peas and rice from bulk bins for pennies, and buying a multi and a bottle of cooking oil.

    Location: France. And you want to replace your food with processed pea powder? Wow....

    Haha not all of us eat frogs and want to spend our time cooking

    Actually I live in Frankfurt at the moment for work and I will be moving to New York in a few months for work again. I am just looking for something fast and easy to do for someone as lazy as I am when it comes to cooking.

    I don't see much of a difference in the result I would get when compared to drinking a Huel meal prepared in one minute ...
    I can keep my shaker with powder in my bag for the day, and whenever I want to eat it I just add water, for me it seems perfect !
    I don't care if it's "processed" or not, as long as I get my macros ... I don't think it's worse than most of the supplements or food we have been eating our whole life.

    I see. Yeah, if money is no object, then sure. You should still be able to make good gains despite using this as long as you get a good amount of calories in through other means. Although personally I would just get a good whey isolate and make my own - more cost effective and hard to beat the bioavailibilty of whey. As you mentioned this is pretty light on calories, looks like 5 servings a day is meant for an average couch potato. Should be easy to get in calories in Frankfurt with all the schnitzel and currywurst etc. or in the Hauptwache area you can go into the shops that have the meat, cheese and various premade items.

    I'm trying to lose some fat but keep muscle gain after a three week vacation without any gym time. I've worked out in my room but it's not the same. I'm thinking a decent sized breakfast - oatmeal with scoop of whey and chopped up banana, 4 scrambled eggs (I'm supposed to have six but no way can I handle that), fish oil - then four huel meals (3-4 scoops each time), and then salad with two chicken breasts or some form of protein at night, then bedtime casein. What do we think? I'm trying to get more toned. I have muscle but it's not that obvious around the stomach area. I'm not fat by any means, but if I lost a bit it would be great.

    LMAO @ this sorry thread.

    Anyone who wants to discuss that powdered **** can do it in the 'smoke and mirrors' (read, supplements) forum. This is the nutrition forum, as in, real-food-related topics.
