Hello. Long time listener, first time caller. I haven’t noticed this around yet so I thought I would bring it up to compare and contrast with you folks who use Soylent. Be cautioned I talk about bodily functions in this thread.
I started Soylent on 1.4 a few months ago. I transitioned my diet to being 100% Soylent. Everything was fine and dandy. Then I got my first shipment of 1.5 and a week into it I seem to be having stomach issues. Nothing too bad. I have become very gassy and I mean terrible gas. Noticeably more and terribly potent smelling gas. As well as my bowel movements have gone from a Bristol Stool Scale type 2 or 3 to a 5 or 6, bordering on diarrhea-like. My stomach has also become more taunt and uncomfortable, probably due to the gas.
The only change I have made to my diet is the change from 1.4 to 1.5. I wanted to compare others’ experiences if similar. Or what are your thoughts? Could it be my body getting used to the new formula and things could settle out or do you think it could be a different issue that I should see a doctor for?
My friend also joined on the Soylent train a few weeks ago and he started on 1.5. He was experiencing stomach issues from the get go, they’ve lessened now but he complains about same gas issues. Now he isn’t 100% Soylent but maybe 50 or 60% and he had just started using Soylent recently so I didn’t give it any consideration until I was a week into my own 1.5 and noticed similar things he was experiencing. Our circumstances are quite different so I thought I should ask a population that more than likely has had more experience with Soylent than he or even I.
Thanks for your time and replies in advance.
