I don’t know if it’s Soylent, or allergies, or what, but I have been doing a DIY version of Soylent for 5 weeks now and I seem to have developed this terrible chest cough. I never get sick, and if I get a cold or something it’ll be gone in a day or two, so this is very odd to me.
This is the recipe: http://diy.soylent.me/recipes/mens-basic-complete-nutrition-chocolate-1600
I also add to it Vitamin K-2 (because it only has K-1 in it), cranberry extract, ginkgo biloba, L-Theanine, L-Carnitine, and 5-HTP.
I feel absolutely amazing, am working out or playing some kind of sport every day, have more energy, focus, stamina, and am losing weight. When I’m working out hard I’ll add extra calories to my day to make up for my increased activity levels, so I know I don’t have any problems there. Everything is going really really great, yet, I’ve had this terrible sounding cough for 2 weeks now and I have no idea why. I don’t smoke or anything. I thought it might be seasonal allergies at first but now I’m really starting to think it’s something to do with the Soylent, which is disappointing because I feel so great otherwise.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
