I used to eat fairly well (serving of actual veggies at every meal, nothing frozen, all cooked from scratch) but in the weeks approaching soylent have devolved to my previous diet of Pizza, pasta and burgers. With missing meals in between and a lot of missed breakfasts from my hour-long commute, this ended up being a major drain on my health and finances, but still averaged between 2000-2400 cals a day.
I had a worse bout of gas earlier this morning, but all bloating seems to be dissipating. It’s easier to go without the solid food, decided against the gum unless my jaw really demands it later.
My roommate with whom I’ve been sharing has been completely without issue. Lucky fellow only had two standard pint glasses until dinner today, and felt totally fine. Disclaimer: he usually has protein shakes with high fiber, gives a bit more credence to ‘everyone has a different starting place’.
All that said, I’m excited for day three and a diminishing return on the Soylent burps. I feel better than I’ve felt in years, and even feel a bit slimmer, though I’m sure that’s psychosomatic. Fun fact: alcohol seems to hit faster and with more effect on Soylent, be careful! Usually takes 3 or 4 for me to get a noticeable buzz, today it only took through half of number two before I needed to pace myself.
