As you might have read elsewhere, I am drinking Soylent 2.0 and LOVING it.
But I recently begun to break out in cysts that are frankly much larger than I’m used to, and minor itchy spots on the arms. I attributed it to stress.
But really, I’ve been much more stressed before this, and never had cysts this large, so why now? I stumbled upon a post by another Soylenteer here who mentioned that he broke out in his neck area. This made me wonder, so I looked around online (hence the “think” part of the title…), and found that allergic reactions to soy cause itching skin, rashes and – you guessed it – development of cysts.
The only change to my diet recently is, yep, Soylent 2.0. I’ve eaten soy in the past – tofu, edamame, etc – and never had a problem, but only consume those items very occasionally. Guess the sustained consumption of soy with Soylent 2.0 caused those reactions.
I’m loath to stop my Soylent 2.0 subscription because I do love drinking it, so I just wanted to see if anyone have any input or thoughts before I bring the hammer down.
