Not sure which category to post for this, so, sorry if it’s the wrong location. I’m a new user and just want to clear up some minor concerns.
My general level of health isn’t the best and my diet over the last few years has been abysmal at best. I am somewhat fit as my job as a laborer keeps me moving(though I have a lot of off time). I really enjoy the idea behind Soylent and am stoked to be able to actually start using it. I just want to make sure my body can handle it.
Considering my extremely poor diet prior and rather sedentary lifestyle, what kind of risks do some of the ingredients pose? I’ve found that maltodextrin can cause spikes in blood sugar(of which I suspect mine may already be a bit high). I noticed in a few threads here there were some raising concerns of risk to diabetic and pre-diabetic individuals? Is this the case with the newer versions?
I have not had a physical and full check up in awhile and plan to do so soon. What kind of conditions associated with the factors I mentioned should I look for as not being compatible with the Soylent program? I have the version 1.3 and am only two days in, having used it for roughly 80% of my daily meals. There have been no real gastric issues but I have noticed more frequent urination and some minor pain in my lower rear side that didn’t last long, I assume was some small bouts with the gas.
Thanks to all for any responses and thanks be to the Soylent team. I look forward to hopefully eating healthier with the help of your product.
