I just started Soylent yesterday and finished bottle 2 this morning. I ordered the Soylent 2.0 bottles in original. I was extremely hesitant about what Soylent would taste like as I have found that protein shakes make me gag, they are so gross!! I found the flavor of 2.0 bottles to be that of graham crackers and a slight hint of oatmeal. When I opened my first bottle and took a sniff, I thought it was going to taste like the bad experiences I had with protein shakes as the initial smell was very much like sniffing a bottle of vitamins (to me). The first initial sniff did smell like vitamins but I was pleasantly surprised at the taste. I found that the colder it is, the better it is to drink and also found out that I’m not a fan of warm or room temperature Soylent.
I have been wanting to find something to help me loose weight and help curb my appetite as I am a picky eater and it’s been hard to loose weight. I’m don’t like salads because of the texture, and a lot of vegetables are out because either flavor or texture. I know, it’s weird.
I read a lot of articles online and found posts in this forum which helped guide me into making the decision to start Soylent. So here I am!
My 2nd bottle, I decided to mix a flavor into it to make it taste better. I had some Chocolate Drink powder made by Health Wise (https://www.healthwisenri.com/shop/product/chocolate_drink_shake_shake). I poured a bottle of Soylent into a stick blender cup, added the chocolate drink powder to it and blended it together. Once blended, I poured it back into the Soylent bottle and stuck it in the freezer for about 15 minutes. It made it have the consistency and flavoring of a Wendy’s chocolate frosty (without all the guilt).
My experiences with 2 bottles so far (one each morning), I have found that I feel full for most of the day and I don’t have cravings for sweets (oddly) as I used to. I’ve found myself drinking more water and although a bit tired, I am starting to feel better. I used to be a sweet tea (I live in the southern part of the US where sweet tea is like water) addict and snacked/ate more than I should.
I’m planning on going to a 90% - 100% soylent diet soon.
Soylent just earned a new fan
