So my wife and I have been eating soylent from something between 50% and 100% of our meals the last couple months (starting 2nd or 3rd week of January). While I have largely maintained my current weight, my wife has lost around 15 pounds. One thing she has noticed the last couple weeks is that after eating a solid meal her stomach often bulges - obviously she’s not happy about that.
Has anyone had the same experience? Anyone have any ideas about what’s causing this, or what can be done?
(Aside from the obvious options of going 100% soylent or eating only very small portions of solids, both of which we are considering)
A nutritionist has suggested that the liquid diet might be disrupting digestion and causing solid food to irritate her stomach. I’m not too sure about that, as we’ve been combining soylent and solid food for, like I said, 2 months now. Seems like our bodies should have long since gotten used to this mixed diet, unless it’s not possible for them to do so.
Any input is welcome. Thanks!
