Ok, thanks for all the input guys and I have been trying to be patient with it.
So, here’s what it feels like now after about 2 weeks experimenting with it, and what I’m doing:
- Wake up at 8am, drink a coffiest.
Thoughts: This never makes me feel full or satisfied but I power through until 10am, and have an apple.
- Lunch 12pm, I’m normally starving at this point and if I’m out and about, walking around and moving and not just sitting at the desk, I will start to actually feel fainty and very very low on energy.
- After a regular lunch of 200-300 kcal (not soylent) I’m fine for quite a while, like til about 6-7pm when I eat a regular dinner of about 500kcal. If I need more kcal to maintain a healthy calorie day count, I plow down a few sips of an original soylent bottle.
The problem here is that sometimes, I won’t be able to have lunch at 12pm because my schedule is ridiculous.
I’ve experimented with drinking another Soylent for lunch, aka reaching almost two thirds of my daily calorie intake and that doesn’t help. After 2-3 hours I feel absolutely miserable.
Also, I’m noticing headaches but I don’t 100% know if this is related to Soylent since I’m also eating 75mg Spironlactone for the past 5 months. (Btw, maybe that medicine is messing with my Soylent intake since it’s diuretic?)
I don’t wanna come off as negative. This is surprisingly emotional and personal to me as well, haha! I feel a heavy “what the f is wrong with me and my body” and get really sad about it. I wanna feel amazing after a nutritionally perfect breakfast of 400 kcal that lasts me to lunchtime, without making me feel like I’m about to die, but instead it ruins the first half of my day.
