First of all I am not your average soylent user. I belong to 4 gyms and am a runner too. I ran 5 races last year, one 5K, two 10K and 2 half marathon’s, 2 weeks apart. I am also a Certified Professional trainer and got Certified in 2002. However I do not train anyone.
With that said I usually go to 2 gyms at a time. One gym to run 20 min on the track and then another one afterwards to do 45 min of heavy weigh training.
When I use to train for full marathon’s (26.2 miles) I would train with ensure and red bull and later rock star instead of red bull when it came out, because it was much stronger. I did my first full marathon when I was 52 and my last when I was 57. I am 64 now. I always eat a full meal before I do my training.
If I drink soylent before I go to the gym I do not think that I would last through my heavy weight training in the second gym. I actually eat a full meal, lean chicken, mung beans, rice and frozen vegetables before I work out. When I go home from the 2 gyms, I would drink a glass of soylent, since I am hungry. After that I would take a shower and the eat a light meal before going to bed.
I ordered a shipment of schmoylent because I heard that it fills you up when you drink it, I will test it. Soylent does not fill me up when I drink it and someone said to drink water after you drink soylent to fill you up on a blog here. Soylent never gave me gas and I basically drink it when I do not have time to cook or get hungry at night. If I drink more than 2 ensures a day it makes me go to the bathroom.
Maybe I said too much on this thread.
