A little background. 69 years old, 5’9", 160 lbs. Have coronary heart disease, chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure, anxiety disorder, and mild emphysema. All conditions are monitored and are under control. Walk/jog 2 miles/day.
After a year on 2.0 my blood test results were all within the normal ranges except for sodium and chlorine. Doctor asked about water intake and it was determined I drank way too much water (100+ ounces/day including 4 bottles of 2.0). I reduced my intake to 4 bottles of 2.0/day and ~24oz. water/day and followup test showed sodium and chlorine levels normal. Cholesterol levels were 40HDL and 61LDL.
To be honest I will have a Clif Bar 2-3 times a week when I am not near my Soylent. I have also on 5 occasions had a regular dinner when out with friends. That seemed to cause some discomfort digestively I suppose because my gut was not accustomed to “food”.
I might add that my kidney function improved 25% from my last tests. I can see no connection to Soylent there.
I also seem to have more energy but at 69 years old little changes can seem exaggerated…
