Introducing Huel: The Future of Food

 
Huel is the convenient way to ensure your body is getting all the nutrition it requires to both sustain good health and to provide enough energy to get you through a busy lifestyle. Amounts can be adapted to suit requirements according to activities as well as if you're using Huel as total or part nutrition. It’s a unique product that’s easy to prepare, convenient and nutritious that brings traditional nutrition into the modern world.
 
For the past 12 months, my colleague Julian Hearn and I have been working on a unique nutrition formula.

Huel is a nutritionally complete powdered food, formulated to include all the protein, carbs, fats, vitamins and minerals that your body needs. Huel provides at least 100% of the UK Government's 'Reference Nutrient Intakes' and the European Union's 'Daily Recommended Amount' with
  • no added sugar
  • no meat or animal products
  • no dairy
  • no soy
  • no eggs

My work with Huel is unlike what I'm more known for: it's target market is not the bodybuilding and fitness industry (although it is a great choice of nutrition for avid gym goers), but busy people who are looking for convenient, optimal nutrition.
 
  • Huel is made from real food. It contains a carefully chosen blend of rice and pean protein, oats, flaxseed, sunflower lecithin, coconut and a vitamin and mineral blend providing all your body needs for optmaim health and energy levels.
  • Huel results in less waste and all ingredienets are sustainable.
  • Huel is suitable for those with even the most complex dietary requirements.
  • Huel is nutritionally complete powdered food. It contains everything your body needs and nothing more.

More information about Huel.  For detailed information regarding our ingredient choice, read: Huel: The Formula Explained


Here's the nutritional information:

 
Please feel free to ask me any questions about Huel.

MuscleTalk & James Collier Part Ways with UKBFF

By James Collier, MuscleTalk Co-Owner
 
I have decided to part ways with the United Kingdom Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation (UKBFF) as I’m not happy about some decisions that have been made by the people who run it.
 
I started working with the Federation in 2008 and we held our first UKBFF sanctioned event in 2010: The UKBFF MuscleTalk Championships.  I have enjoyed working alongside the federation and I love a lot of what the UKBFF and IFBB do for bodybuilding; there are some great people working within the federation, some of whom have become friends.
 
However, due in part to some recent events, working alongside the UKBFF has meant it has ceased to be a positive experience.  In particular I’m not happy over the issues regarding the Lee Priest Tour by Muscle Promotions; many of you will have read comments on social media. One gym due to hold a seminar, was Simon Fan’s Ultimate Fitness Gym in Birmingham: just a short while before the seminar was due to start, Simon received a text saying that if he allowed Lee Priest to appear at his gym, Simon could no longer work with the UKBFF / IFBB as Lee Priest is an athlete banned for life.  It was too late for Simon to cancel as he had sold tickets and his gym members were looking forward to it.  Simon worked with Neil Hill and me in 2011 to bring back IFBB Grand Prix Pro Bodybuilding to the UK.  Although the show was a major success, we had a lot of stress and Simon took a significant financial hit, as he did again in 2012 when the IFBB Grand Prix was held at SportEx.  Simon has been at the pinnacle of UK bodybuilding since and has been working with the UKBFF/IFBB. Simon and I have a great relationship and I think the way he’s been treated by the federation is unfair, especially considering what he’s sacrificed.
 
There were also issues with other gyms who proposed to hold seminars and, although I don’t agree with the way Muscle Promotions have handled things, I do respect their points. This, as well as a couple of other issues, has meant working alongside the UKBFF has become a negative experience for me. These issues include tanning and the fact that they no longer support the wheelchair class in bodybuilding.  I do wish to thank Bill & Wanda Tierney for sanctioning our show over the past few years and I’ve enjoyed a good working relationship with them and other members of the UKBFF; I will miss working under the UKBFF in many ways.  Bodybuilding and fitness shows should be a positive thing and with what’s going on at the moment, there is too much negativity and this is not good for the sport.
 
This decision is purely my own and is not influenced by anyone in any way and those concerned know my feelings. The MuscleTalk Championships will continue to run and, working alongside Luke Nichols as always, will be held in the usual venue – Bedford Corn Exchange – on 28th June 2015 and will feature bodybuilding and fitness classes: details to follow soon.  I will continue to work with bodybuilders and fitness competitors and will still be involved in the scene: you’ll be seeing a lot more of me and MuscleTalk yet!
