I was an early supporter of Soylent on Kickstarter and I just received my 1 months supply. I just made my first batch using a Vitamix blender and it is nice and smooth. My first impression is it tastes like raw cookie dough. I like the flavor… so far. : )
I am a bit confused about how much I need to consume. I am 6 feet tall and 170 pounds. I am thin and that extra weight is strictly in my belly. From what I understand, 1 packet of the Soylent with the oil is equal to 2,000 calories a day. Is this correct?
I am looking to lose a few pounds and get a flat stomach again. If I consume the entire pitcher of Soylent daily, will I lose weight? Now, I just have got to give up the french fries and ice cream.
Also, I am not going to lie here. I have never fasted or put myself on a cleanse diet. Going Soylent is damned scary for me? I work as a bartender in a restaurant and I have to always be on my “A” game. I must always be smiling and friendly and I am always under stress. I hope Soylent doesn’t mess me up.
I welcome any and all suggestions. I will keep you all up-to-date!
