I have been having consistent heartburn every time I drink Soylent. I started last Thursday so today is Day #6. It’s really bad, yesterday I burped up what tasted like vomit or stomach acid.
I’ve only started having heartburn for the first time in my life over the past year, and I thought it was due to my poor diet. It wasn’t all the time, just when I ate really bad food. I was using Gaviscon whenever it happened and that would make me feel better. I haven’t used it since starting Soylent because I wanted to just see what would happen without anything extra.
I was hoping Soylent would alleviate the heartburn I was having before, but unfortunately it seems to be making it worse since I’m now getting it every day. Is this something that will subside on its own? Is there something I can do to stop it besides use Gaviscon when I feel it?
I’m not chugging the Soylent down. I basically drink it like any other drink, taking a few swigs every few minutes for 10-15 minutes, then putting it in the fridge for several hours, and repeat. I don’t get the heartburn immediately after drinking, it’s closer to an hour or so afterwards.
