I’ve really enjoyed it with some major caveats. After 4-5 days I felt great but then over Memorial Day Weekend I drank a lot and had drunk-food. The day after drinking, I didn’t feel up to eating so I only ate maybe half a day’s worth of Soylent. The combination of drinking and only eating half a day’s Soylent caused me to feel extremely tired - it was a very unsafe feeling which I tried to counteract by eating a ton of Soylent. By the end of the day I had to break down and eat a burrito to regain my strength. Eating a steak burrito made me feel much better. It was a very very odd feeling.
The other thing I can’t stress enough is Soylent is producing a lot of really bad gas that has made me embarrassed to be around other people. More problematic is that that drinking and drunk food seem to multiply the gas to another level. I was at a party and had to leave early, it was very bad.
So, one week in - love the product, when I’m behaving myself I feel great but in social situations with alcohol I am hating the product. I have a first date next week and I am going to take a hiatus from Soylent for a few days to make sure I don’t ruin the date with bad gas.
I hope weeks 2/3 work out better and the gas goes away, but if I am going out and going on dates I may not be able to make it that far!
