i just got my first batch of soylent 1.4 and tried it this evening. it seems fine to me, a bit like pancake batter as i’d read online. i can’t help comparing it to the Ensure nutritional drink and of course it’s not as sweet as that which is a good thing ultimately. i’m worried that i will find myself consuming more than the specified amount per serving to fill myself up. i’m probably just worrying over nothing. it will be a strange thing to not be eating regular meals.
i’m hoping that i can use soylent to keep myself from eating unhealthy foods. the convenience of frozen pizza for example is too easy a habit for me or craving chips, cheese, desserts, processed food. so i’m hoping that i can prevent myself craving those foods by feeling filled up on soylent.
i’m also hoping that it will help me cut down on eating out. and between the time savings for shopping/preparation/consumption/cleanup and hopefully lessening the load on my digestive system it will help me be more efficient and get more done. then i’m also hoping that it will potentially give my overall health a bit of a boost if i’m able to avoid unhealthy consumption. i hope that eventually they’ll offer a few flavor options when one wants a change (i know that one can do this oneself). it would be great if they’re always making it healthier and better tasting, potentially even offering nootropic effects.
anyway, i’ll get back to reading more of the posts here.
