For those that choose Original Soylent for dinner


#1

Do you find that you need to get up more often to use the bathroom at night vs having the Soylent earlier in the day?


#2

I am having soylent all day and have never had to get up at night to go to the bathroom yet. I am on day 4 without anything like that happening yet. Also think its good to note that I have never had that problem even when not drinking soylent.


#3

No, I haven’t seen any difference since starting Soylent. It’s pretty rare that I need to get up at night, but when it does happen it’s usually for several nights in a row, haven’t looked into the cause.


#4

I’ve found that when I first switched to Soylent I would wake up probably once per night where I pretty much never did before.

I used the bathroom when that happened but I felt like I was waking up due to energy rather than a NEED to use the bathroom/

That faded pretty quickly; either I adjusted or my sleep schedule has changed for the worse the last few weeks (or both)


#5

When I started doing DIY, I was drinking a lot more water than I had before. I would wake up in the middle of the night and have to pee. I almost never did before. After a little while I believe my stomach got smaller and bladder got bigger. I haven’t gotten up to pee for a long time now.

So, give it a month or so. It should work itself out.


#6

I started going it when I went to a higher fat consumption, and consequently higher water needs. I didn’t experience it before that, though.


#7

What time are you having dinner @nwoll27?


#8

@ianproth typically about two or three hours before bed, with quite a bit of variance. Anywhere from 6pm-10pm and usually in bed from 10pm-12am, but I probably eat ‘real’ food for dinner about 60% of the time.
