Nutrition Myths – Huel Nutrition

Nutrition Myths – Huel Nutrition

today we’re going to tackle some common
nutrition myths my colleagues here at Yule HQ have come up with some nutrition
myths that they’ve commonly heard and they’ve written them down they’re on on
these cards here and I haven’t read them before so I’m just going to read them
out and then talk about each one okay the first one eating before bed will
make you fat okay I can see where that one comes from your metabolic rate does
change throughout the day in the morning it’s a lot faster than evening it’s a
lot slower so ideally you want to be spreading your food throughout the day
don’t eat too late at night but there’s no none of this you mustn’t eat past
7:00 p.m. well because we all go to bed at different times so I don’t see how
that one rule can can fit everyone so and also it’s not good to have food
lasting at night when you’re lying down and horizontally it doesn’t help the
side digestion so yeah you won’t make you fat if you eat too late but try not
to eat too much too late what we’ve got next
all vegans are malnourished okay let’s give a definition of the word
malnourished first malnutrition is does not mean don’t have enough food that is
undernourished malnourished means you haven’t got adequate amounts of one or
more of the nutrients and there is a misconception that vegans are
malnourished because they’re not getting all the nutrients they need from
different foods that’s not true a vegan a varied plant-based diet can all get
adequate of all nutrients they haven’t got to worry about the effects of phytic
acid on on iron absorption which I’ve discussed in an another video called
anti nutrients because a plant-based diet is actually really high in iron and
this more than compensates for that also vitamin c in a plant-based diet will
help promote the iron absorption the other nutrient that vegans often are
worried about not getting enough is protein it said that plant proteins
aren’t complete proteins or to a degree they’re not but they do contain all the
amino acid and if you could put more than one
protein source together you will be getting plenty of all the essential
amino acids to have a look at the next one
fat free equals healthy you see the term fat free on food labels I don’t like
that term fat free doesn’t mean healthy we need a good intake of fat
unfortunately we’ve got the legacy of bad nutrition guidelines from the 1970s
still lurking about that says fats bad it’s not
we need fat just the right types of fat another one carbs are bad so we’re just
you know some some people think that’s bad other people think that carbs are bad
well carbs are not bad providing you getting good quality fibrous starchy
carbs regular throughout the day carbs like cereals and potatoes a great
sources of energy we don’t need carbs to live but they do provide an excellent
source of energy okay if you have too many refined carbs and sugars that’s not
good you need to keep your sugar intake fairly low but it’s the starchy carbs
that are more slowly digested and absorbed give you that steady influx of
energy and then a really useful dairy is the only way to get calcium dairy
products like milk cheese are actually really rich sources of calcium and it is
some well absorbed from those but also as a lot of plant foods that are rich in
calcium seeds nuts even some of the green beige have a lot of calcium in it
next one what is a superfood I don’t like that term it doesn’t mean anything
so-called superfoods things like goji berries and sea buckthorn extract and so
and so does this that and the other you know it doesn’t really cut it with me as
a lot of claims made about certain foods if you have good amounts of them they’ll
do wonders for you okay there are some some good nutritious but you’d have to
eat an awful lot of them to get a good nutrition to me all food is super just
enjoy your food another one salt is bad for you so is not bad for you salt is
sodium chloride you need sodium and you need chloride they’re both essential
elect that we need in our diet you need a
certain amount of sodium every day the problem is most of us are having too
much so we told to cut down so generally some good advice is don’t add salt to
your food unless you really have to you’ll get enough sodium if you eat a
varied diet with plenty of fruit vegetables or even with some meat and
animal products I hope you’ve enjoyed me tackling some of the nutrition myths
today I certainly have if you’ve got any
nutrition questions or nutrition myths that you’d like me to talk about why
don’t you post them below the video on youtube or on our forum which you can
find on

  1. Here's a myth that a couple of people have patiently explained to me:

    If you keep consuming more then the Nutrient Reference Value of a fat-soluble vitamin, even by just a little, the vitamin will accumulate in your body until it harms you.

  2. thanks for the comments, always good to have urban myths "busted". however, i've a few customers who apparently "know what they are doing " with balanced diets and tell me that i shouldn't rely on HUEL, as it has way too much protein. really? i work stupid hours and just want space food pill, that will keep me healthy at an acceptable cost. now i'm in doubt.. help!

  3. You fail to mention although many vegetables are high in iron they aren't as bio-available. Very simplistic answers for the less informed.

  4. The only vitamin a vegan can't get from plant based diet is B12. However, B12 is grown in labs and almost all vegan alternative drinks and foods are fortified with said vitamin. As for calcium, just take a look at how much calcium soya beans contain.

    As a keen mountain climber and a long term vegan I've been looking for a liquid food supplement and came across this product. I'll place my order asap and give it a try.

  5. im impressed at the quantity of leucine 4 servings of huel as a day which is easily more than the dosage buying leucine supplements do, same for BCAA's supplements

  6. It is fake food. High in fat, Too high in Protein. Low in Satiety. Striped of it fiber. Stop worrying about nutrition and just eat a Plant based diet high in intact starches, like beans, rice, potatoes, pasta.

  7. I've been having Hurl for about 2 years now and I love it, I still eat normal food but it's handy when it comes to lunch and a quick dinner if I'm lazy ……my shake will always contain a banana, peanut butter, chia seeds and water and milk mix …..this is a great nutritional supplement and keeps me trim and full of energy.

  8. Why vegan ? another angle good luck….remember vulnerable people food is the enemy, drink fluid instead…bollocks

  9. Well…yes but we actually need carbs to live, we need glucose and we cant really hope to get it all from proteins and fat metabolism right?

  10. Get ยฃ10 off your first Huel order over ยฃ40 with this link!

  11. I thought milling oats into a fine powder ( the main carbs in Huel) caused them to behave much like processed white flower in the body?

  12. I'm on day two of eating huel and it's working very well for me. I basically plan on just eating 90% huel from now on. Added fruits and veggies are nice too of course.
