I got my backers month supply of Soylent the end of July. I used it throughout August, September, and October, about 30% Soylent. I had run out for November and went back to eating 100% traditional food. I had noticed those days I had Soylent, I was much more energetic, and feeling great.
During November, I couldn’t believe the difference from traditional food - I was tired, weak, and lacked energy. I decided to subscribe to the month’s worth of Soylent, and started using it about 80% daily with traditional food. Whenever I use Soylent, I feel amazing! And most of the time I have been adding 1/4tbs of ground sea salt to the blender, and my crack g for salty snacks (usually popcorn) is just about gone.
However, I can’t get over the gas produced. I take three beanos before each serving, and am fine for the breakfast drink. Do the same for lunch, and by dinner, I can’t stand the gas. I try not to have Soylent if I’m going out, simply just to minimize the gas.
Once I start working out again in January, I’m going to mix in some more protein powder for the extra protein.
When mixing, I pour 32oz of water into the blender, and this provides me either three 16oz blender bottles (666 calories), or four 12oz bottle (500 calories). It’s a no-brainer now that I’ve figured out how to portion it. 500 calories if I’m going out for lunch or dinner, or 666 calories if I’m not going out.
Hope this helps folks!
