Hello, my name is David.
I happened upon Robs blog post back in late February some how (I think reddit) and have been intrigued by the notion of not having to worry about food any more ever since.
Having followed the blog for 2 months, I was ecstatic by the arrival of a kickstarter. To my dismay did I find it was US only. Against Rob’s recommendations to try to do it your self, I started to construct a recipe. After reading into the high toxicity of some the compound i’d be ingesting, I didn’t want to end this experiment before it started and op’ed for the safer One-in-all micro nutrient supplement, to get me started.
I have been on my own (poorly constructed) soylent for the past seven days.
[My soylent recipe]
I mix a single days worth in a container and use a magic bullet to split it into 4 for the day
After seven days of pure soylent, I noticed little change.
My bowl movements are pretty much the same(if not a lot more consistent now)
I’m never hungry, nor am I ever full.
I ran two 3-4 mile full sprints with a 2 day rest in between each run and was only mildly tired after each run, which is standard.
I can still do the same amount of pushups/squats/situps I normally can do.
My urine is a more vibrant yellow then before.
I sub’ed the Oat for pure Malto fora day once, It was a sugar rush, followed by a medium crash.
I like the taste of it, and have yet to tire of it; mind you, I like taste of the pure malto blend more.
I plan on getting blood work done soon(sometime this next week)
And that is my experience so far.
If any one can point out a reason to discontinue this experiment, please tell me, otherwise I think I might go for a month trial next.
