I’ve been using a DIY Soylent recipe (http://soylentmaker.com/the-beginners-diy-soylent-recipe) with some minor tweaks for a little over a month now and I love it. Like the creator Rob, I ate like crap to a point where my weight and health were a rollercoaster ride. I can’t be bothered to cook so Soylent is the most efficient way to get my body all its necessary reqs, decrease my eco footprint and stabilize my monthly “food” expenses.
1st and foremost, big thank you to Rob and the creator of the DIY Soylent recipe above.
2nd, I made some tweaks and would like to provide some feedback. I switched the flavor of the Whey Protein from Dark Chocolate to Cookies n Cream. Another big change was the elimination of the olive oil and table salt and addition of 1.5 tablespoons of all natural peanut butter. With those changes, I can finish 1/2 day’s serving size of Soylent in less than 2 minutes because it actually tastes great.
3rd, the biggest change I made was the elimination of the Fitness Fiber. I had stomach issues with the Fitness Fiber to a point where I decreased the intake to 50%, then completely eliminated it. My stomach issues are completely resolved. Phew.
4th, what’s a good alternative to Fitness Fiber? I imagine I’m not the only person with stomach issues arising from the Fitness Fiber so I’d love to hear feedback from someone that had similar stomach issues and found a comparable alternative.
Lastly, my friend brought a very good point, but bear with me here. How is ANY Soylent recipe mitigating nutrient absorption “issues”? My friend is a food nut and he loves the idea of Soylent but has been hesitant because drinking your nutrients is fine and dandy, but what is the absorption rate since the digestive system is not “working” on digesting the liquid form.
I would like to add my “new” regiment, I would say I’m on 95% Soylent with the weekend dinners with friends. Those dinners now consist of seafood or all natural ingredients. I also eat much more fruit during the day.
Again thanks everyone.
