When I drink even a small amount of soylent (not even 100% diet) my brain starts to tickle, it feels like it is just in between the skull and the brain. Also when I drink just a small amount and go straight to bed I can’t sleep, while my body is tired my brain is very much awake. I feel much more mentally aware and can think about complex issues with more ease, but sometimes it’s just a little too much … I wonder if it is the maltodextrin?
Also I noticed that a certain time after drinking soylent my whole body feels like it is sweating a little bit, there is no actual sweat on the skin but it feels like I’m just about to break a sweat, is this just the metabolism kicking in starting to burn through the calories?
Lastly even though the soylent tastes good/neutral/slightly sweet at first it always leaves a bitter / leaden / metallic feeling not just in my mouth but throughout my whole body, I really like the way I feel on soylent, no sugar crash, no afternoon slump, but this bitter / metallic (acidic?) feeling is off and I’d love to find a way to mitigate it …
Thanks for any insights!!
This is my recipe:
later I changed it a bit to have more variety in the carbs
I’m not actually using the sulfur, choline, potassium powders since I’m only replacing lunch …
