I’m on my third round of soylent, second round of people chow, and I had some questions about absorption rates.
Currently my recipe is - https://diy.soylent.me/recipes/pc-301-kogneto
I’m basing this off a modified Gov DRI male 19-50, 1500 cal, low carb, so my recipe shows 85% but I’m as close to 100% as possible (http://imgur.com/sLybPwv).
My current method is 40oz water + 2tbsp Zoyle, blend till mixture approaches 60oz, let settle a few minutes, pour into 2 blender bottles, drink 1 per day in the morning. Two 1200mg Calcium / 1000iu Vitamin D3 pills spread out while at work.
I was wondering if there is research out there on absorption rates, I’ve seen a lot of responses but none with any sources or citations. I get home from work at around 5pm, and after a short dog walk my appetite picks up, but I go the entire day without feeling hungry.
Would it be better to split breakfast and lunch? Would it be even more better to split it into 2nd breakfast and elevensies as well? Does it really matter? My pee is slightly neon from the Vitamin B’s, but considerably less than my first round of people chow when I was following it to the T.
I do love the flavor and consistency at this point, thick but it’s like I can’t stop chugging it. I was going to split today’s in 2 but after I hit the halfway mark on my first swig I just kept going.
As far as feeling wise, I don’t feel hungry till the evening, and I’m a LOT less stressed now that I’m not worrying about where to eat at lunch, or having to remember to pack a lunch in the morning.
