I’ve been a longtime Soylent fan, but I keep having intermittent stomach issues on the various recipes.
First I tried the first few versions of the powder, but experiences brutal gas and bloating. Tried for a few days before giving up.
When 2.0 came out, I loaded up on the glossy bottles. I absolutely loved them. I experienced a bit of gas, but I found supplementing Beano solved my problem. I got to the point where I was 50% Soylent most days and my car was stacked with empty Soylent bottles.
Then the foil seal bottles came out… I noticed an immediate difference in taste. Much grittier. Chalky. Not as smooth. It seemed OK, but I started noticing that roughly 1-2 hours after I drank the foil bottles, my stomach would get all anxious and uncomfortable (with or without adding Beano). So much so that I find it difficult to work and it ruins my afternoon because I can’t focus.
It’s bad enough that I have effectively stopped drinking Soylent and am now waiting for the next formula.
My understanding is that the foil bottles ingredients haven’t changed, so I can’t figure out what could be causing this issue. Any ideas? I miss my Soylent!
