So, I’ve admittedly been a lurker for some time now. I only recently made an account in December, but I’ve been following the posts and discussion since, I’d estimate, around mid-2013.
I have roughly skimmed through all the postings under all the subtopics and have read quite a few that had catchy post titles or an usual number of comments.
What I haven’t seen anywhere is a simple how-do-ya-do? So I figured it’s as good a time as any! I’ll be starting up a vlog in a few months and I’m getting full CBC and lipids done shortly before my Soylent order arrives (in a few weeks, I suspect). I may go for homocysteine and T3/T4 tests too, just out of curiosity, but it seems these tend to be more expensive. I’d like to get hair mineral analysis done but I fear nowhere in my great state is there any such service
I don’t know what protocol is for CT scans, but I had some interest in this as well. I will consider various metrics to track my changes. I’ve never had more than a week so far and have been eager to get on a long term, 99.99% soylent diet for forever! I may consider adding caffeine and L-theanine, as I’ve seen others voice the most prominent results. The nootropics seem hit-or-miss, and I prefer data over dabble so I’ll wait til the jury’s out on all that! I’ve researched all manners of supplements and additives and really can’t seem to find any I like or have much use for, which is a shame because I really wanted to make my Soylent more personalized. No matter! I hope I can share the vlog in time; until then, soylent on!
Anywho, I just wanted to say hello to the ENTIRE COMMUNITY! And to offer up a thread where we can all get to know each other a bit better and how everyone’s enjoying their various iterations of Soylent! I know a bit about some of the more active posters on here, but not so much that could not be called poorly fragmented and happenstance! I don’t know, I just feel like I don’t know anyone here and I’m a tad bored of commenting on the one or two interesting posts I see a week. I feel like if I knew some people here better and you all knew each other better, we might end up posting more stuff that we all have common interests in. Just a thought
I don’t know if this is being to general, or if it will bother anyone that this is pretty much a “talk about anything” thread, but I figure posting such a general topic might lead to interesting discussion that other more focused topics may be more limited in producing.
