I recall a while back one of the ‘criticisms’ of Soylent was that it would lead to a dystopian future in which employees are forced to eat it to increase productivity and decrease downtime for food during work hours or some such nonsense. This is pretty silly, but as someone who works on a computer in a cubicle maze, I’d say my favorite thing is that my lunch time has been cut down to the 30 seconds it takes to walk to the break room and drink some Soylent.
This translates to being able to leave work around 4 PM, well before almost anyone else and right before the traffic gets bad, which saves me even more time. I get a solid 1.5 hours back in my day due to this, on average. It’s become one of the main reasons I eat Soylent, in addition to not having my usual after lunch crash and fighting to stay awake at my desk.
Just thought I’d share as someone who usually can’t tell the difference between a healthy meal and a terrible one as far as my body feels, and who hasn’t really noticed any other particular benefits of Soylent. The time savings alone make it worth it to me.
