With all this talk of shutdown it’s worth noting that if it comes to it there could be thousands of business put at risk, some already are. Business cannot survive without income, sales, and if the community is shut down then it starts the clock ticking for all of them, us included.
First off, let me say, we are financially strong enough to survive many weeks before we enter the realm of trading insolvency. We are a small team and all of our staff will be paid in full as usual whether they are here or not, they are part of who we are as much as anyone.
People come first of course, we want everyone to be safe, but we need to be the world post corona virus .
We are open as usual, if any of us get sick we will of course self isolate as per the guidelines but our operational roles are not close contact by any imagination so we will continue to operate as usual unless we are forced not to.Read More
Lie Detector Payment Plans
We totally appreciate taking a lie detector test is expensive, whilst our prices are fixed and transparent at £399 all inclusive at our own offices this is a lot of money to find. We have been asked a lot do we have a payment plan so the client can spread the cost of the lie detector test, and the answer is yes we do. We do require full payment though before running a lie detector test, imagine if the result isn’t what the clients wants, we may never get paid!
When setting up a payment plan for a client we give them our bank details and a unique reference so that any money paid to us can be tracked. Alternatively, we can send a weekly payment request and a link so they make payments. When the balance is close to being paid, we setup a mutually agreeable time for the lie detector test.
We also take payment on card should you wish to use a credit card to make payment and spread the cost this way instead of using our payment plan.
Whilst we totally appreciate the urgency for many to take a lie detector test, we urge clients not to go into debt in order to pay for a lie detector test.
Lie Detectors UK cover the complete UK and have their own offices in Maidstone in Kent but also can come to you. All examiners are members of the American Polygraph Association and the British Polygraph Association which shows they are fully qualified and experienced and use the latest equipment and techniques for accuracy. Call us today on 0207 859 4960 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and talk with an examiner and discuss your case. We do take a deposit of £150 when we take a booking from a client.

Thanks for reading this, hope your Huel journey is as good as mine, just tried the Choc Mint flavour and its good, favourite is still the original Vanilla though.
Latest update, my favourite is now the Banana flavour, I still add a banana in a blender.
The Huel Powder Formula Explained
Huel Powder is a nutritionally complete powdered food that is high in protein and fibre, low in sugar and salt, rich in phytonutrients, and contains a balanced macro split of 37:30:30:3 (carbohydrate, protein, fat, fibre) and all 26 essential vitamins and minerals.
Additionally, it contains no lactose or any animal products, no soy, and no GMO.
Huel Powder meets the UK and EU Reference Nutrient Intake (RNI), Reference Intake (RI) and Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) for all macro- and micronutrients, it is a sustained source of energy and has a wealth of other nutritional benefits.
Huel Powder is 37:30:30:3 Macro Split
The principle macronutrients that we obtain energy from food are carbohydrate, fat, protein, and fibre. In Huel Powder we’ve set them at the ratio of 37:30:30:3 respectively; i.e. 37% of the energy comes from carbohydrates, 30% from fats, 30% from proteins and 3% from fibre.
Amino acids are the most basic units of protein, and several amino acids are essential for life, with others being crucial for good health, so any diet has to contain a significant amount of protein.
There are also fatty acids that are essential for life and good health, so including sources of fat is crucial too.
Carbohydrates, however, are not essential per se, but they do have significant benefits to sustaining even energy levels and are significantly cheaper, helping to make Huel Powder more affordable.
We’ve designed Huel Powder at these ratios as they are not only within the parameters of the healthy eating guidelines but are also levels designed for optimum, sustained energy release whilst covering macronutritional requirements for disease prevention.
The carbs in Huel Powder are from ultra-fine powdered oats and tapioca. Oats have been shown to have a low glycaemic index (GI); GI refers to the speed after which we ingest a carb source to the resulting rise in blood sugar and, hence, energy levels The oats in Huel Powder mix easily and help sustain energy levels until the next meal. Many of the formulas used in sports nutrition or for weight reduction use maltodextrin as the main carb source. Maltodextrin is cheap and easy to mix, so there’s a valid reason for its use. However, although it’s a ‘complex’ carb, it actually has a high GI , so these formulas provide a surge of energy followed by a slump: far from ideal for busy people with active jobs. Maltodextrin is also a synthetic carb so provides nothing more than carbohydrates for energy. The oat powder in Huel Powder has been milled so finely that it’s readily soluble, and there’s also not a huge price difference compared to maltodextrin. Plus, as oats are natural, they provide so much more than just carbohydrates: many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients too. Indeed, it could be said that the inclusion of oat powder is one of the main reasons why Huel Powder could be considered superior to many foods readily consumed today.
Tapioca is a starch extracted from cassava, a root vegetable, similar to sweet potato. It’s inclusion in Huel Powder provides additional carbohydrates and aids texture.
The fats in Huel Powder provide 30% of the total energy and are made up from flaxseeds and sunflower seeds to ensure that the essential fatty acids are included in optimum amounts. We’ve also included coconut for very good reasons: the fats in coconut are what are known as medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs, and these are treated much like carbs, i.e. they provide an energy-rich, sustained fuel and are perfect for those of us with busy lifestyles But MCTs have another invaluable quality: they are not susceptible to oxidation and rancidity, meaning that they do not contribute to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. In short, MCTs from coconut are a healthy and efficient source of energy.
There are two completely essential fatty acids (EFAs) that humans require: linoleic acid (LA – an omega-6 fatty acid) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA – an omega-3) . Using our blend of flaxseed and sunflower oil powder, we’ve ensured Huel Powder contains sufficient amounts of both of these EFAs as well as other omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. Moreover, these natural seed powders provide antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals in a biochemical redox balance to help minimise free-radical production. Free radicals may be involved in the pathology of cancer, cardiovascular disease and ageing, so it’s desirable to keep their formation to a minimum, and this is the role of antioxidants.
The RI for protein is 50g per day, but this only covers our very basic needs and prevents protein deficiency . The Western diet typically provides more and Huel Powder does too. All essential amino acids are included in adequate amounts from two vegan protein sources: pea and brown rice protein, as well as protein from the oat powder. Based on an average 2,000-calorie intake, you’ll be consuming 148g protein per day from Huel Powder. This provides a good amount for optimal health as well as building and maintaining a healthy body. Furthermore, protein is more satiating (appetite suppressing) than other macronutrients , and we’ve designed Huel Powder to stop unwanted hunger pangs.
Protein is made up of amino acids. There are over 500 amino acids in nature, 20 of which are known as the standard amino acids, as these are the ones that are coded for genetically and are subsequently involved in primary protein synthesis in animals. Of these 20, nine are essential as they cannot be synthesised from other amino acids.
The nine essential amino acids are:
The other 11 are:
- Aspartic acid
- Glutamic acid
Amino Acid Content of Huel Powder (based on v3.0 Vanilla – amounts will differ slightly for other flavours)
|Amino Acid (mg)||Per 100g||Per 2000kcal||RDA*||%RDA per 100g|
*WHO (2007) recommended daily amounts for essential amino acids for a 70kg adult
**Combined total for methionine + cysteine
***Combined total for phenylalanine + tyrosine
****Figure includes asparagine
*****Figure includes glutamine
All protein sources are not equal: some are classed as ‘complete proteins’ and some are not. A complete protein is one that contains sufficient quantities of all nine essential amino acids.
Generally, proteins derived from animal foods (meats, fish, poultry, milk and eggs) are complete. Indeed, some proteins derived from plant foods (legumes, seeds, grains and vegetables) are often complete as well; examples include chickpeas, black beans, pumpkin seeds, cashews, cauliflower, quinoa, pistachios, turnip greens, black-eyed peas and soya. Many plant foods have insufficient amounts of one or more of the essential amino acids. Some are notably low, such as corn protein, which is low in lysine and isoleucine.
The protein in Huel Powder comes from four of the main six ingredients: pea protein, oats, brown rice protein and flaxseed. This ensures a good range of all amino acids and that there are sufficient amounts of the essential amino acids. Rice protein is high in the sulphur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine, plus it contains good amounts of all the others, but is very low in lysine. Pea protein is low in cysteine and methionine but high in lysine. This is why we selected these two sources, ensuring everything was covered whilst keeping Huel Powder vegan. Plus there’s additional protein from the oats, which are reasonably high in all essential aminos, and the flaxseed.
Huel Powder contains 116-152% (based on European v3.0 formula, varies between flavour/variety) of the recommended daily amount of fibre. The fibre in Huel Powder is a mixture of soluble and insoluble forms all naturally supplied from the food ingredients, mainly from oats and flaxseed, and provides more than most modern solid diets. The high-fibre content of Huel Powder helps to ensure the formation of normal, solid stools in healthy users.
Fibre acts like a sponge, so it’s important to consume lots of water when using Huel Powder . The Huel Powder formula has been designed to maintain optimum digestive system health. Moreover, you may well have heard about the beneficial soluble fibre in oats called beta-glucan; well, Huel Powder is loaded with this cholesterol-lowering fibre; ideal for a healthy heart .
A bulk of the vitamins and minerals – also known as micronutrients – in Huel Powder are from natural ingredients. However, in order to meet the demands of a Western lifestyle, we’ve added a unique vitamin and mineral formula to provide, in some cases, more than 100% of the recommended amounts.
Since the UK Dietary Reference Values were compiled in 1991 , there have been numerous studies in the past 20 years demonstrating that, for many micronutrients, levels higher than the RNI may have beneficial effects to health.
For example, it’s widely considered that the amount of vitamin C we’re recommended to consume is too low , so we’ve reflected this in the Huel Powder formula. The vitamin C in Huel Powder is provided by the acerola cherries. Benefits of consuming more vitamin C include a healthy immune system, healthy skin and antioxidant properties
With calcium, the US recommended amount is more than the UK RNI (1,300mg vs 800mg per day) , and we feel the US recommendation is more than sufficient to more than protect against osteoporosis. With some of the trace elements the levels are far higher than the recommended amounts. This is because we only need tiny amounts of them, but the natural ingredients in Huel Powder are a rich source.
Choline is a conditionally essential B vitamin, and although, strictly speaking, it can be synthesised in our bodies, it’s more efficient to obtain it from our diets. It’s of particular importance for post-menopausal women. As Huel Powder is all about optimum health, the inclusion of choline was felt to be fundamental.
Iodine is a trace mineral essential for thyroid health. The inclusion of kelp in Huel is to provide a natural source of iodine.
There has been some concern about phytic acid: a naturally occurring substance in some cereals including oats. Phytic acid can chelate (bind) some minerals meaning that they’re less bioavailable . As oat powder is a fundamental ingredient of Huel Powder, we’ve ensured the levels of some minerals, like iron and zinc, are higher, to accommodate any issues with phytic acid chelation. Furthermore, the high level of vitamin C in Huel Powder will also further promote iron absorption .
Phytonutrients are substances found in plant foods which, whilst not essential, may exhibit some health benefits like disease risk prevention. Junk food diets and many synthetic liquid diets that aren’t based on real food are deficient in phytonutrients, and thus consumers miss out on invaluable health benefits and antioxidant effects.
Because Huel Powder’s fundamental ingredients are plant-based foods, these are already phytonutrient-rich and the benefits are passed onto anyone consuming Huel Powder. However, we’ve also added some additional phytonutrients to optimise the Huel Powder formula and to complement the antioxidant nutrients vitamins C and E and selenium.
Phytonutrient polyphenols in Huel Powder have antioxidant activity and help protect against cardiovascular disease, some cancers and age-related conditions. Huel Powder’s beneficial phytonutrients include:
- Avenanthramides: antioxidant polyphenols unique to oats shown to have anti-inflammatory effects.
- Ferulic acid: also from oats, a potent antioxidant and antibacterial agent that has also been shown to have anti-cancer properties.
- Lutein: from the flaxseed powder and we’ve also added additional lutein in our vitamin and mineral blend. Although not essential, there is concern that diets low in lutein may lead to macular degeneration of the eye in the elderly, as lutein is involved in eye pigment development. Lutein is also an antioxidant.
- Zeaxanthin: another antioxidant, this has been added as it also has a role in long-term eye health.
- Lycopene: added as it’s a potent antioxidant and has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some cancers.
- Other carotenoids and bioflavonoids have antioxidant activity and are naturally present from the acerola cherries.
Huel Powder contains the probiotic Bacillus coagulans MTCC 5856. Probiotics are ‘good’ bacteria which, when consumed in adequate amounts, may have health benefits, particularly for gut health.
Kombucha is a fermented product that is made using a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). Kombucha provides B-vitamins which are produced when the SCOBY breaks down the sugars present.
Summary – Huel Powder is Food
As you can see, Huel Powder has a far superior nutrition compared to most conventional diets. Huel Powder can be your sole nutritional source, or you can drink it as individual meals or even as a between-meal snack. In this way, it can be an add-on improvement to your diet to ensure you’re giving your body what it needs.

Kyle Sandilands claims he has been rehired 10 years after controversial lie detector test that went oh so wrong on live TV. Violating all protocol by doing a live test on a 14 year old girl back in 2009, apparently all is forgotten? One would think the integrity of someone that would perform such an act would be considered, but reality TV seems to do anything for money today.
Claiming his new show will be called “Trial by Kyle”, he says it features him in a reality TV show with him as a ‘Judge’ that will preside over celebrity feuds…and other such hogwash.
Quoted as saying “I’m returning to Channel Ten. The people who terribly fired me back in the day.” He claimed he was only returning to the network that fired him a decade ago because they were paying him good money.
Continuing, he said: “I’ve signed off on it. I’ve signed off to do one. I’m not sure how it’s going to go.” The network has not confirmed the show, only saying, according to The Daily Telegraph, that they have “already reconsidered the program in response to Kyle shooting his mouth off prematurely.”
It is strange that fake TV spends a lot of time using fake lie detector testing as a way to try to prove there is actually any truth in their scripted, made up exploitation shows. As always, we welcome them to attend a real test about their practices and ‘fakery’.Read More
TV Reality Shows Prove Once Again They are Patently FakeThis week we found ourselves being called to duty to help explain a tweet by Kady McDermott relating to the authenticity of the supposed ‘polygraphs’ given on the ‘reality’ show Love Island. Although the producers of the show, ITV, have stated that the tests are ‘real’ we had no choice but to call them on it. Lie Detectors UK, the #1 Expert UK Polygraph Examination facility, had owner Jason Hubble requested to be interviewed at the BBC (see video below) and for The Sun as their “Trusted Expert”.
Why were the ‘Lie Detector Tests’ carried out on Love Island – that the producers of the show falsely claim were real – really a fake and nothing but TV HOAX?
Top 10 Reasons Love Island Lie Detector Tests Were Fake:
- All polygraph tests should be carried out in a neutral environment, no film crew etc.
- Questions should be asked by a neutral person who is a fully educated APA qualified examiner
- Having an ex-partner ask any questions would ruin ANY accuracy.
- Questions have to be based on fact.
- You cannot ask questions based on intent or emotion, question construction is very important.
- What comparison questions were they asking? Absolutely nothing so how do we know if a person is lying to a question or whether the reaction is purely through nerves and anxiety alone.
- The so called polygraph used was missing some vital sensors like blood pressure, blood flow with a ples and only one upper body movement sensor when different people breathe from different parts of their body.
- The ‘examanees’ were not sitting on a motion detection mat
- Answers from the examinee should be a direct Yes or No.
- It is fake, scripted, artificially hyped up ‘Reality TV Show’
Location, Location, Location…There are seemingly a lot of options when booking a lie detector test. However, there are only three polygraph companies in the U.K. that have their own offices and we are one of them. We are also the only concern to have a dedicated examination office in the South East of the U.K.
EnvironmentWhy do we think it is important to conduct a an examination in an office environment? For one is a distraction free zone that we the examiner can manage. Our testing suite has been setup to get the best results when testing someone with the room layout so the client faces the correct way not looking at the examiner and facing a clear wall. The room is also quiet and well ventilated. We have both a private testing suite and a separate waiting room, where your partner or relatives can wait in comfort whilst the test is being carried out. We have male and female toilets and a facility to make hot drinks and even a small car park. Whilst we do also offer home visits, we need to assure that you have a suitable environment for us to perform a test in. We also offer local office hire and use a network of offices all over the country allowing us to have a nationwide coverage, (link to locations page)so it is always possible to offer a test close to your location. Our own dedicated offices are based in Kent’s county town of Maidstone, in a converted schoolhouse, conveniently located in the centre of the town at 6 Buckland Road Maidstone Kent ME16 0SL. Both Maidstone East, West and Barracks railway stations are no more than 10 minutes’ walk away and the M20 and M25 road network is close. We are approximately 45 minutes from London. <br/ > We charge £399 all-inclusive at our Maidstone office and can take evening and weekend bookings so you do not need to take time off work. We can usually offer same week appointments as we appreciate when you decide to take a test you would rather take a test as soon as possible.Read More
“Man shares lie detector results on facebook to clear long-running rumors”
When we saw the above headline about the Adam Weitsman case in America recently, we were reminded of a case we were involved in couple of years ago where we ran a similar test and were able to clear a man who had been wrongly sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. It later transpired the person who had committed the crime had made a confession on his death bed: (https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/dying-man-who-served-28-6139381).
“I just want to clear my name of these ridiculous folklore rumors,” Weitsman was quoted as saying, when he released the results of a lie detector test he submitted to, publicly, on his facebook page recently…that he passed with flying colors.
False rumor postings have been ordered removed by a U.S. District Court Judge, after Weitsman won a defamation lawsuit against a former employee. Weitsman had been accused of involvement in a murder by a disgruntled former employee who has now been ordered to remove derogatory references to Weitsman and his company “from all websites, forums, blogs, lists, social media accounts, and any other forum of mass communication”.
But that was not enough. Weitsman said he just wanted to put an end to the rumors once and for all, hence the polygraph. Weitsman said “I have had to put up with the most crazy rumor about me and my company for the past 17 years”.
These types of situations really show how a polygraph can be used to help clear a person who has been potentially accused of a crime they didn’t commit. This type of single issue test is very accurate allowing the examiner to achieve figures around the 95 percentile.Read More
Time Traveller Lie Detector Test
Yet again Apex TV on you tube bring out a fake lie detector test.
They are using a device bought on Ebay that has no scientific validity and costs a fraction of a real polygraph. The person asking the questions has no training whatsoever and certainly would not be able to give an opinion on the answers given by the subject.
This content is blocked. Accept cookies to view the content.
A real polygraph test lasts around two hours and consists of three relevant questions repeated over three charts then scored. Other control questions are used.
We at Lie Detectors UK would happily test anyone assuming to be a time traveller using validated techniques on a real polygraph achieving real accuracy with an examiner who has received real training and graduated to become an APA Examiner.
We test all over the UK but have our own head office in Maidstone

The following discussion between examiner and examinee will increase disclosures of problem behavior during interview and produce better tests results due to enhancing the effect of differential saliency. Release of Information Form: Reinforce confidentiality; “it’s nobody else’s business what we talk about.” You will be given every opportunity to discuss with me the things you know are important in this interview.
I will review all of the standard conditions of probation and treatment; most will probably not apply to you, but some will, and you will need to be honest with me about each of them. When we are all done discussing your activity during the period for this test, I will have two “stacks” of behavior; one stack (maybe large) of things you have not done and another one (probably small) of things you have done or may apply to you in some way. I will normally test you on those activities you claim you have not done. That way it will be very easy for you to pass the test. So, if something applies to you, whether you have told your PO or treatment provider, just be honest and tell me so we can talk about it and get if off your mind (no longer a secret). I am not going to test you on things you have done—just what you claim you have not done. Give ‘gun’ example: and “how sure are you that you haven’t handled a firearm? 100%?” Once we are done with this review, which will take a while, then I can put together the simple “yes or “no” questions for your test. Since I do not know what kind of things you are going to tell me, I do not know what the test questions will be until we are all done with the review. We will then prepare all test questions together, that way if you think of something else you can tell me before the test and I can change the question if I need to, or even toss it out and put something else in.
There many things I can test and interview you on today and I want you to be completely certain that your answer to each question is 100% truthful. This is a very easy test to pass, but it is just as easy to fail. Therefore, before you get into “that” chair and are hooked up to the polygraph, you will know every question on the test since we made them up together and reviewed them. It is against the law for me to ask you any other question during the test (like in the movies) other than the ones we prepared and you assured me you were answering truthfully.
By signing this release you are agreeing to several things; you understand the information we talk about is only given to the persons/programs listed above; you will follow the instructions I give you on how to “take” the test and interview, and perhaps most important, you agree to be completely honest about everything we talk about. You cannot choose what you will be truthful to. This is not a lie-detector test, unless you decide to purposely lie to any of the questions, then that is exactly what it will end up being. This is really a ‘truth verification test’ which is a much better outcome for you and will make your PO and treatment provider happy. Remember, the first thing they look at on my report is the last page, which indicates if the person “passed or “failed”. When, not “if” you pass this test they are less likely to impose a severe penalty if you were honest and told me about it before the test. Of course, if you have robbed a bank that is a different story—-but as long as you told me about it before the test, you would still pass the test. Remember, you can pass this test no matter what you have done, as long as you tell me the truth about it. Again—I am not going to test you on what you have done—just what you have not done. When you “pass” this test today, the next one we do will be from this day forward—a clean slate, but only if you tell the truth before you take this test. If you lie you will fail the test. That will bring everything to a standstill. You will eventually have to get honest anyway; you will be in trouble with your PO and treatment provider and are sanctioned for lying. Most of the time the lie is a bigger deal than the behavior was. In most all cases, you will probably be required to pay again and take a re-test. Unlike any other test you have ever taken, you will know the results of this one before you even take it. I am the only one in the dark right now, but in a little while, I will know what you know. So, if you promise to be truthful with me today, go ahead and sign the form. If you feel for any reason you just cannot be honest today, do not sign the form; you can wait in the lobby and I will contact your PO.
End of First Chart: OK—how did you feel when you answered each question? Did anything important come to your mind on any of the questions we need to talk about? If something did, we can ‘fix’ it before we do the next chart. I think you sat pretty still as I asked you to do—the computer did not show any twitches or movement, which is good. No, I do not know how you are doing on the test, since the data is stored in the computer and I will print it out and evaluate it when we are all done. However, you know how you are doing don’t you? As long as you know you are being completely honest to each question, you will pass the test. OK, let us get ready to do the second examination chart. Since you are telling the truth (I hope) this second time through will actually be a little easier. You know how it feels to sit there and answer each question; you are used to hearing my voice and you are aware of how it feels to be very honest when you answer “yes” or “no”.
On that first chart, the questions were asked in the same order we prepared them and rehearsed them earlier. On this chart, the computer will mix up the order in which the questions will be asked so I will be asking them in a different order. Same questions—same truthful answers. If you are simply sitting there waiting to tell the truth, you don’t care what order they are in– -do you? Of course, if you are waiting to lie, that will be obvious when it happens.
OK, let us get started again. OK, that chart should have “felt” easier than the first. It is always easier to tell the truth repeatedly since your body gets more and more comfortable each time. Truthful people often say they can feel their stress level go down when they know they are being honest. Now, for the person who is not being honest it just starts bad and gets worse, every time. So, before we finish this up, is there anything else you may have thought about we need to discuss? We can still “fix” a question if you “remembered” something during the test. OK then, this third chart should be the best one for you. So sit quietly, pay close attention and listen carefully, telling the truth one more time. When we finish this chart, I will check the data to make sure you did not flinch or move, which could require additional testing.
OK, we are all done with the test and interview. I will have you wait in the lobby for me. I will print out all your test data and do the evaluation. It will take 20-30 minutes to complete and then I will come get you and we will review the results.
