The increased appetite effect has been observed in fruit flies and mice. Has anyone consuming Soylent for over a year noticed an increased appetite overall?
I’m also curious about what the threshold for any such effect would be in humans. Perhaps Soylent’s sucralose levels are low enough not to cause any issues.
