Hello! I’ve been on Soylent for about 2 weeks now for 100% of my meals. The first couple days I didn’t notice much difference, but on day 3 I started feeling really run down and tired. My thinking and ability to focus also declined. I had a hard time staying awake while trying to read a book a couple days ago. My eyes glazed over with dizziness and I wanted to sleep right then and there are my desk!
I tried to pass it off as a fluke. That maybe I was having an “off day”.I didn’t give it much attention, so I kept on drinking the soylent. After a couple more days I couldn’t ignore it anymore. Yesterday at work I had a soylent meal and about 15-20 minutes later all I wanted to do was sleep! I have found it a struggle to go for my daily walks these last two weeks and just stay awake in general! I was yawning and feeling very heavy with sleepiness and felt dizzy. I’ve been having 4-5 of the meals per day and plenty of water. I also added a multivitamin to fill in any gaps in case I was missing something on those 4 meal soylent days.
Most people report boosted energy on soylent, but I have had the exact opposite effect. Has anyone else experienced the sleepiness on soylent? What have you done to counteract this? If someone has advice, I’d be very happy to hear it!
