Alright reporting back in at about the 2 week mark. I’m down 4.8 lbs total (of about 60ish to lose). I ended up not being able to handle the taste of 1.4 myself either, and it has chickened me out for trying 1.5. Maybe once you get ‘used’ to a certain thing, you just can’t handle change? 1.4 was making me gag, but then I know there are a lot of folks on here that like it. Tried Chocolate Schmilk and liked it, though still probably like Vanilla Schmoylent the best. Going to get more of both. Also still waiting on a small order of 2.0 to try. Spouse hasn’t tried the chocolate schmilk yet so I can’t report on his reaction.
I was 100% the first week except for 2 fast food dinner meals (so about 80% of total weekly calories). Last week ended up with 4 fast food dinners due to the 1.4 being disgusting and me not having a backup plan until the day after. And yet weight has been holding pretty steady at the loss, even after a fast food meal when I would expect it to shoot back up again it does not, or will only by less than a pound and be back down again next day. The last .8 lbs have been over the weekend when fast food was consumed. Side effect of this stuff seems that my weight bounces around a lot less during the day. I expected that on days I was 100% liquid but am surprised the effect is holding through my high sodium fast food meals. Have been walking every day at work, haven’t been hungry on ~1500 calories a day, except for one day when I stayed up really late so I think it just felt like more than one day to my hunger.
I’ll report my weight again in another week or two, so far so good, best weight loss I’ve had in several years no joke, and though I am counting calories it is very effortless, and I feel great most days. That’s not to say I don’t crave food on days I don’t intend to eat any, but I think that’d be true on any calorie-restriction diet. Oh and the sweetness of the drinks cuts my desire to binge on ice cream/candy bars at the end of the day, I am super surprised at that side effect.
