This is a question for anyone who has made the switch to oat powder and reduced maltodextrin, though I would of course appreciate an answer from Rob if you get the time.
Because my interest in soylent is largely due to the fact that it may be a solution to a complex and rare neuro-gastroenterological condition I am suffering from, a large part of my goal is to minimize the amount of “actual food” that has to pass through my colon to avoid triggering painful and debilitating spasms that have pretty much messed my whole life up. Having been on Soylent for a couple weeks, I’m optimistic about the effects in this regard, after having gotten over some initial difficulties.
However, since Oat Powder is “actual food”, does that mean that it would produce more waste? Can anyone who has done an all-soylent diet attest to the effects of Oat Powder relative to the original formula on the amount, and consistency, of your bowel movements?
