I finally started yesterday. I don’t have official Soylent yet, just a couple of DIY versions and some space nutrients food. I’ve dabbled with DIY on and off for about a month now but I’ve finally run out of excuses as to why I can’t try living off it exclusively. My latest excuse was that I needed to continue eating regular food in case I get picked for that Soylent study that was supposed to start in mid-June. Maybe they meant 2015.
My stats: female, age 51, 5’5", 143 lbs, food addict, CA
My goal: lose 15 lbs and find some sort of recovery
My plan: Soylent only during July (and yes I’m supposed to get one week’s worth of the original from @Spud)
My Soylent orders: 1 week in November 2013 and one month subscription in June 2014.
day1: I started out with @spaceman food. It’s delicious but at least for the time being I won’t be able to reorder. Spaceman food to me is like near beer to an alcoholic. It just tastes too much like food and I keep wanting more even though I’m not hungry. I had two bottles of it and at night I made my own version of Marion chow. I was never a good cook and it looks like this will carry over into the Soylent world since my Marion chow didn’t taste as good as @axcho’s original which luckily I still have three bags off.
day 2: I woke up with a light headache which went away after drinking 32 oz of water. I didn’t feel particularly hungry and was not looking forward to having another bottle of my mix. Before drinking it I gave it a thorough spin in the Vitamix and it tasted better than last night albeit not as good as the original one. I gotta work on getting this right because part of the attraction of Soylent is the price.
