I’m not a chemistry or a math person. I don’t profess to having an intimate knowledge of human biology. All I know is, I have no appetite, and I no longer derive pleasure from eating food. It’s not just food, either. Whatever robbed me of my appetite also took its toll on my libido (which is now entirely absent), my sleeping habits (it takes me up to an hour to get to sleep, and I often wake up in the middle of the night), and my emotional well-being (I haven’t experienced joy or happiness in anything for awhile.)
On top of chemical depression issues, I’ve also been having dramatic weight loss (sometimes up to twenty pounds in under two weeks) and fainting episodes due to low blood sugar. I’m almost completely certain my issues are primarily dietary; I’m malnourished because I have no appetite, and I have no appetite because I’m malnourished.
I’m very interested in the Soylent project – not just as a dietary supplement, but a dietary replacement. I could easily motivate myself to chug a Soylent shake in the morning and evening, but I can’t seem to convince myself firing up the stove or even hopping in the car to get food elsewhere is worth the effort.
In layman’s terms – do you think a diet of Soylent would also help me combat my depression by addressing my nutrient deficiencies?
Also, when it is available for purchase instead of just pre-order, is there a way it can be bought pre-sorted into a general amount, for people who consider reading numbers like reading a foreign language?
