As said in the topic title Im an obese 6ft and 260 pound person. Along side with that Im 17, male, and I have a large frame. Ive recently started using Soylent to completely supplement my food. Most of the people I saw that did this diet ate/drank a packet a day and lost a substantial amount of weight. At the end of the day i only consume about 1000 calories (if not less). Ive only been doing this “diet” for about 3 days and Im wondering if consuming only 1000 calories when I normally take in about 3000+ will have a major impact on my health, after Im done with this I plan to eat solid meals from time to time and start doing exercise to maintain my weight.
I ask because Ive seen cases where there are obese people who only consume about 900 calories and cant lose any weight because their metabolism slowed down to fit their life style. Im I at risk for a similar position ? If so, is there a combination of both food and Soylent to prevent this? I would appreciate any and all help reguarding this subject, Thanks for giving me a minute of your time !
