I have Celiac’s disease and switching to a gluten free diet wasn’t enough. Apparently it’s not that uncommon for people with a bowel disease (like celiac’s, chron’s, etc) and/or chronic diarrhea to be sensitive to lots of different foods. It’s called leaky gut syndrome. I’ve been struggling to gain weight and Soylent seems like a good way to make sure I’m getting enough calories. I switched to a simple (but in no way easy) diet called the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Basically, you avoid all kinds of sugar, starch, and grains. A small amount of honey is allowed (<1tbsp/day), but the grains and starch rules are very strict. Absolutely no corn, potatoes, quinoa, etc… Whey and soy are also not allowed. There is a long (but partial) list of allowed foods on the website.
I’m going to start with the Amazon-sourced Soylent recipe since I have Amazon Prime. The first thing I need to replace is the whey protein powder. I might try egg white protein powder, has anyone used it before?
Edit: Here’s my version of the spreadsheet. It’s currently a work-in-progress. Lots of supplements have added starch so I’ll probably need to find some alternatives.
