JALAPENO Side Effect?


#1

Ok, I been on 1.4 for 5 days now exclusively. Me and the wife decided to take the kids to BWW for a birthday and I ordered Ultimate Nachos which come with fresh Jalapenos. As usual I ordred additional Jalapenos because who doesnt want a pepper per nacho right? Well, more than half way in and two peppers (not slices) down, my mouth wasnt burning and I could only taste the crispness/freshness of the peppers. No Spice…so what did I do? Order More of course…I couldnt feel the burn, so my wife tried and she felt the burn.

Can someone please go eat a fresh Jalapeno and tell me if you can feel the burn? PLEAAAASE

Also - What goes in must come out and I will report back if and when I am crying on the porcelin throne.

I’m not entirely sure if this is a joke or not, and I haven’t eaten any fresh jalapeños recently, but I can assure you that Soylent is not magical and capsaicin will still burn. I don’t have any fresh jalapeños but I did have some sriracha hot sauce the other day and it definitely still burns (I’m usually on 50% Soylent).

It’s possible you are less sensitive than your wife (jalapeños aren’t particularly hot) or maybe the pepper she tried was hotter (it varies). There are a lot of explanations but I doubt Soylent was a factor. If anything I’d think you would be likely to become more sensitive to capsaicin if consuming only Soylent. You can build up a tolerance for the heat by consuming hot peppers and hot sauces. Genetics could play a factor, too.

I happened to be home reading your reply so I decided to try Sricha… NO FRIGGING BURN. It taste salty like plain hotsauce. This has got to be the weirdest thing ever! I am a spicy food eater so I’m not a novice and because I keep a very good log of every thing I consume this one is easy for me since I’m 100% soylent right now.

Disclaimer: I just dropped the Browns off at the Superbowl so I will assume it was last nights meal…no burn. I will post back when I cycle off it next week

If you’re a masochist you could get a Carolina Reaper and put your theory to the ultimate test. I would suggest pure capsaicin crystals but I don’t want you to hurt yourself.

Note: I am joking! Consume at your own risk!

I have some CR seads that I’ll be planting soon. WIth luck, I’ll be able to harvest some peppers in a few months. I didn’t have any luck last year. The plants are really tough to grow from seed.


#6

Is it possible you’ve also changed your toothpaste, or dental hygiene routine, recently. I’ve found certain toothpastes can reduce my sensitivity to such things.


#7

No changes in routine here, I’m a process nut so I like things consistent so I can maximize my time doing things like living Hense me eliminating food lol. I’ll figure this thing out soon. But in the mean time if someone is 100% just try to see if the same happens, cuz right now I’m getting a bunch of theories from u guys :0 (


#8

I can’t imagine what’s causing that. I’m not a hot-foods enthusiast, and only eat mildly hot sauces; eating up to 95% Soylent hasn’t made hot sauces taste any less hot to me.


#9

My advice is go see a doctor. Sudden changes in any sense is not a good sign.

I add crushed habanero pepper juice to my soylent on occasion and I don’t feel any burn then, just the added flavor and pick me up.

When I put chopped habanero on pizza or anything else, I def feel the burn and like it to a point.

It’s also something that I can build up a tolerance to…The longer I go without eating hot spicy things the hotter they seem to me…
