So it has been one full month since I started taking Soylent and it is not without its ups and downs however overall my experience with Soylent has been a pleasant one. The hardest part for me was the first week and but after that it was nothing but routine.
During the first week of the had some major headaches and some digestive issues. However the headaches could have been caused by the lack of caffeine as I gave up coffee the same day I started to take Soylent. As far as the digestive issues they stopped around day 4.
If you haven’t already switched to a Soylent diet I recommend starting slow with one meal and then working your way up to allow your body to adjust. With all the years of bacon, beer and burgers my body had a tough time and went into a type of shock.
I found that Soylent is a great way to limit my caloric intake and also meet all the nutritional requirements my body needs. Of course Soylent does not just allow me to watch my intake but it does also free up a lot of time each week and even saves me some money about $175 per month.
One of the cons that I have encountered is the lack of variety, however there are many different ways to spice up your Soylent intake. For example I have tried a number of different fruits and ingredients like peanut butter.
I do cheat twice a week and have two dinners per week. I also do have a piece of fruit each night with the occasional light beer. Just like any diet change it is important especially if you are limiting your intake to cheat. Cheating allows you to remain focused without going through a binge session that can completely throw you off your game.
Overall I would recommend switching to a Soylent diet and if you give it a chance you might actually like it. The only major problem I see with Soylent is the wait time to get the first shipment… but it seems they are working on that…
