LOL yeah and you hit the nail on the head. It’s a feeling of satisfaction without feeling like my stomach itself is actually “full”, which frankly I find can be uncomfortable so is not missed.
We both have still had cravings to various degrees, her moreso than me. But then I’ve been having slightly less conventional food than she has… I kinda wonder if that’s a factor, that by continuing to have more frequent conventional food, it keeps the “craving mechanisms” (for lack of a better word) in play more than if you go mostly/all Soylent. Or maybe some people just lose cravings faster than others, I don’t know.
For me it’s less a craving like “I GOTTA HAVE ME SOME ICE CREAM!” or anything like that, it’s more like a yearning for something from the past, almost like a nostalgia. I’ll think about a bowl of cereal and think “gee that sounds really pleasant right about now… I think I’ll have me some.” And so I have a small bowl, find it delicious, and am quite happy. But I don’t, as I would have in the past, immediately feel like I want more, and more, and more. Same for other conventional foods I’ve had since Soylent. Once I have a small portion, I don’t feel the need for more even though it’s perfectly enjoyable.
