Hello, my name is ruipacheco and I’m a soylenter.
I’m taking baby steps with a DIY formula I found. It tastes terrible but that’s because of the quality of the ingredients I’ve sourced. I understand that if I want to have a full meal replacement I need the best ingredients possible but right now I just want to have a feel for how this is done. If I so much as get a whiff that I might be unwell I’ll immediately jump on a plate of spareribs.
Now, one thing that I can’t overcome is the hunger. I grabbed that formula, divided all the macros by 3 and prepare those amounts per meal, usually just breakfast. But I’m always hungry. My stomach is empty, my head is spinning, I can’t focus. I think I am getting enough calories but I’m not sure if that’s my overly optimistic brain compensating or what.
So, what’s your opinion? Is it supposed to be this way? Will my stomach get used to being empty and my body to receive calories from liquids? Am I even doing the right thing? Are we alone in the Universe? What is the meaning of life?
