I started with 7 bags. I chose not to use the oil, because I take a Vescepa, which is a fish oil with EPA, without the DHA. It’s prescribed, but it’s pretty brilliant, the removal of DHA, is directly correlated to lowering LDL. I chose to mix the bags only with water. I’m not a foody, nor do I expect perfection with a product like this. I like to focus on fitness, and prefer to have predictability with regard to how I burn my calories. The idea here is being able to sustain muscle while losing fat. I finished the entire supply, and I enjoyed the taste. I found the consumption of 18 oz’s at a time to be very satisfying. Unfortunately, I noticed three or four, very red and itchy rashes, within the next day or two. What’s important here, is that I’ve always been someone who has been immune to such things. I’ve never reacted to anything like this my entire life. I figured it was a fluke. Once I ran out of supply, the rashes after some time, diminished and I thought nothing of them again. Since I enjoyed the product so much, I upped my subscription to 14 bags. The next day after drinking soylent, once again, I developed rashes approximately in the same areas. I’m now into my second bag, and I’m hesitant to finish, what I had made and stored for my next serving.
Hence, this is the reason why I’m here. I wanted to know if there were others that had this reaction? I wanted to know, what the likely cause may be? If it’s known, are there steps being taken, to adjust the formulation, so that I feel confident in staying the course? I’m a little torn, honestly, because I would like to finish what’s been made, and was hoping to finish the bags I still have. Is there something that I can add to the drink, so as to neutralize, what it may be that’s causing the issue?.
Thanks for your feedback.
