Soylent (1.4) doesn't seem to suppress my appetite for solid food


#1

I find myself eating about as much per day as I did before starting soylent plus the 800 or so calories of soylent I’m having

This isn’t terrible as I’m actually quite underweight, but does concern me a bit.

I’ve only been on it for 5 days now

Easy. Your body craves soylent because soylent gives your body what it needs.

The extra appetite is for the rest of what your body needs.


#3

That is common, I experienced wanting to binge eat after my first few days on Soylent. It is rooted in you associating volume of food in your stomach with how hungry you are.


#4

Soylent is not particularly designed to suppress normal appetite. Since you are already underweight, I would interpret appetite as an attempt to restore normal health, and a good sign. I’m not exactly certain what you are expecting of Soylent.

I’ve found that 1.4 doesn’t satiate me nearly as much as earlier versions did. YEMD.
