Gut bacteria and Soylent [con't]


Continuing the discussion from Gut bacteria and Soylent:

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from this front. Have any DIYers been keeping track of their microbiome in any way; any official notice on how this affects an individual’s microbiome from Rosa Labs? (@rob? @JulioMiles?).

I’m also curious as to how changing ones microbiome (which I would be surprised if S/soylent didn’t do in the majority of the population) affects weight loss / weight gain, especially in the case where over 70% of ones diet is replaced.

turtle edit: Another interesting article & study on gut bacteria; Gut Bacteria From Thin Humans Can Slim Mice Down.


Still waiting on my uBiome kit. I’m planning on writing a blog post based on what I learn when I receive it.


Hey Rob,

Did you ever get the uBiome results? Is there anyone else in the Soylent community profiling the gut microbiome?
