For me, the only negative side-effect that hasn’t gone away, is the terrible smell of my farts and excrement. I like to joke that holding it in is Kegels exercise, but it is a real danger to my social and sex life.
Before I got used to the smell I’d walk into my room and it would smell noticeably funky. The smell lingers in the seat of my pants, and no doubt my bed and seat cushions as well. The bathroom at my job is right next to my bosses’ offices. Holding it in doesn’t always work, and the bloat pressure can’t be healthy. The nerd factor of drinking Soylent is usually interesting to most people, but it’s a net-negative if it makes you into a “pig-pen” of stench.
What supplements could I possibly take to reduce the stench of my backend waste? Most preferably they would be long-term safe, cheap, and could be ordered in bulk just like my Soylent. I’ve heard of taking activated charcoal, but I suspect that would also neutralize a lot of the micronutrients.
Which DIY Soylents stink least, without leaving neglecting sulphur and other essentials?
