Quick summary: I’m looking to swap or sell up to 3.5 weeks of 1.5. I’m in central NC and possibly will do the sell/swap in person even if I have to drive far, with the idea of combining the sell/swap with a tour/vacation on my part. Or barring that, I’ll do a shipping sell/swap. I’m willing to do a two bag of 1.5 for one bag of pre-1.5 swap or a straight sale for $5 per bag, with the buyer paying for shipping.
Longer summary: I usually do two bags per week of Soylent, or 8.5 bags per month. That relatively small amount actually makes a big difference in my life and one of the reasons I’m so big on the idea of Soylent is a relatively small amount that is can make a big difference. But on that premise, in order to save a view bucks I ordered 28 days of 1.5 instead of my usual 7 days. IOW, I ordered four months worth at my current rate of consumption instead of one months worth.
There is something that trumps my like of Soylent and that is my dislike of gout. I’ve had a few serious bouts in the past, or at least I think that’s what it was, and I’ve learned that it’s something I want to avoid at all costs. As far as I know one of the potential triggers of gout is a diet high in oat products. 1.5 is high in oat products and although 1.4 apparently is too. I consumed 1.4 without problems but the few times I’ve consume 1.5 I’d have a response that is gout-ish and that makes me want to not use it anymore. Not that I had big flares of gout, but my past experience says that when you have little flares you need to change what is causing them or else face the consequences.
So that’s why I’m selling. my 1.5. Maybe I’ll try one more of my 1.5 bags but the larger idea is to pare down my 1.5 amount, especially since 2.0 comes out in October and it doesn’t have oats (I think).
So there ya go. Anyone wanting to deal please let me know.
