So, I am an over the road truck driver, and I intend to start drinking soylent as my main source of sustenance. This is a pre-post for thoughts, comments, curiosities, questions, and interests. I will include all information i think may be relevant.
I am 5’11", roundabouts 270lb, and i drive a big truck with a big 53’ trailer, weighing up to 80,000 lbs total, all over the US. I spend the vast majority of my time sitting. Not much exercise.
The reasons for trying soylent:
Food has became a chore. When I get the pang of hunger, I sigh and think. “Now I have to find a place to stop and get some food.” … most of the time. Very rarely, I actually get an urge for something specific… if I switch to soylent, I can accomplish many goals. I can get more nutrition, I believe I can lose weight, I can have sustenance available for when I get stuck at a shipper for extended periods of time, and I can be more efficient with my time, as well as be less restricted or where I stop for breaks or sleep.
I just bought 35 bags of soylent 1.5, and will be getting home to collect them in a couple weeks… I also bought a vaping machine to help move off smoking analog cigarettes, I bought 35 1-dram bottles of super strength lorann oils, a bunch of “opti vitamins” and 180ml of ejuice.
My intent is to mix up a pitcher, transfer half to a 1-liter thurmus, flavor it, and drink that throughout the day. Take two vitamins during that day as well, and then drink the other half of the pitcher the next day, rince, and repeat… lower calories may belp me lose weight, and/or leave room for if i happen to get an urge to eat something different.
All comments/tips/questions welcome and encouraged… I will edit post or reply with experiences and thoughts, if and when I begin the regiment, and if I remember And have time to write said posts.
