Recently, we have often been asked by readers what we find better. Athletic Greens or Huel. Again and again we should list the advantages and disadvantages. Athletic Greens vs Huel?

Caution spoiler: The result we came to at the end of this page finally surprised ourselves!athletic greens huel shake

At first, it seemed strange to compare the two supplements, because we actually compare apples with pears. The two powders not only have a different color, but also a (albeit minimal) different objective.

  • Athletic Greens is a strong supplement that provides you with over 75 valuable superfoods, vitamins and nutrients in a few seconds with a shake.
  • Huel is a meal replacement (just like soylent which is also a great meal replacement) and can be considered a complete food in powder form. By the way: The name Huel is composed of HUman fuEL.

Athletic Greens advantages

Athletic Greens provides you within seconds with vitamins and nutrients that you would otherwise have to eat several portions of fruit and vegetables. The positive effect is already noticeable after a few days. We have listed the benefits and health improvements on the page Athletic Greens experiences.

Athletic Greens contra/criticism

Athletic Greens contains 45 calories per shake. This is positive for people who want to get a healthy shake quickly in the morning without breaking their fasting phase or who want to drink the shake in addition to breakfast. You can even use Athletic in a ketogenic diet (keto diet). The shake does not significantly impact the calorie account.

  1. However, this also means that the Greens Shake does not saturate.
  2. Athletic Greens is therefore not a meal replacement.
  3. He lacks the corresponding Omega 3 fatty oils.
  4. It lacks the protein in the shake. This must be taken in addition with a diet with Athletic Greens in the form of a corresponding meal.

Some see this as a point of criticism, others see it as a positive effect, precisely because many people want to cover their daily vitamin and nutrient requirements with this shake. This is perfectly possible with Athletic Greens!
