Shipping issues aside, I have seen an insurmountable number of complaints on this forum that have absolutely no factual basis. Many of them are along these lines - “Started drinking Soylent yesterday and I have a headache today. MUST BE CHEMICALS IN MY SOYLENT!”
Please don’t complain about an upset stomach if you switched from 100% food to 100% Soylent overnight. Of course you have gas if you are drastically changing your diet. Many people experience these side effects from making normal dietary changes and nobody bats an eye.
Have any of you ever had a pet? (I only ask because domestic animals regularly consume one homogeneous food blend.) Have you ever switched food brands? Any veterinarian will tell you that you do not just, out of the blue, start feeding your pet a different brand of food one day. This is the exact same concept.
If you look at the illustration included in the directions it doesn’t even recommend a 100% Soylent diet by day 5. A good rule for those of you who plan to go 100% Soylent is to SLOWLY incorporate it into your diet over a period of AT LEAST 7 days - working from 33% up to 100% at an even pace.
Additionally, most health and lifestyle changes require 21 days before the full effects of a change will become apparent in you. To the people complaining about a “mental fog” hours after consuming Soylent - Please refer to the PLACEBO links at the top of this post.
