I was 100% Soylent for pretty close to a year. It’s the perfect product for me. But I quit cold turkey when I they raised the price for Canadians. I did the math and found that 2.0 is $5 a bottle and 2 big macs are $5. After that instead of reaching for a bottle I will go for a walk to McDonalds. That got me half way, the other half was I started eating cereal. I pour a bowl of healthy flakes and add a scoop of protein powder. Cost me $2.5. For $7.5 I can eat lazy, instead of the $25 that Rosa wants me to pay. If I want to eat healthy I can add a multivitamin for .15.
The one person I got onto Soylent did the same as me. As soon as the price went up she quit. She was using it as a “weight-loss” diet. She’d go 100% soylent for a month and lose 15 lbs then go back to food.
The only time Soylent still has a place in when I go camping. Since I still like Soylent itself I can stomach paying $90 for a week of powder. Prepacked backpacking food is roughly double powdered Soylent. And Soylent has the benefit of a no-stove option.
When it’s cold and I can’t have a fire I like to bring tea so I can have something warm.
