I eased into 1.4 (one meal a day for the first few days). I had almost an immediate reaction every time: nausea, headaches. I almost felt like I immediately had a fever, like my ears were getting hot, or felt out of body. It was pretty crazy. Outside of Soylent that day, I felt perfectly fine.
Note: I specifically made sure that day I was drinking plenty of water. I tend to drink a lot of water anyway.
I couldn’t continue with 1.4 between the bad taste and the side effects. I’m giving this one more try with 1.5.
Any recommendations for avoiding this? Any idea why it happened?
My usual diet isn’t great, but it’s not terrible. A healthy-ish cereal for breakfast. Maybe a sandwich from Jimmy Johns for lunch. Maybe pizza or rotisserie chicken for dinner. I tend to eat fruit daily. I drink a lot of water. I usually have an almond milk latte (but never have caffeine headaches). I usually do NOT drink soda.
And I never get headaches!
