Weight loss / fullness on 1.5 v 2.0


#1

I’ve done a few months of both 1.5 and 2.0. I intake between 1200-1400 calories per day. Personal experience is that I am able to lose, and keep off, more weight on 1.5 than 2.0. I also find myself feeling more full with 1.5 compared to 2.0 when drinking the same number of calories. No idea if there’s a scientific explanation for this based on the ingredient differential.

Anyone else seeing/feeling the same?


#2

Yes, I feel 1.5 is distinctly more filling than 2.0, and that is important enough to me that I prefer 1.5 for that reason. The last time I got a dozen bottles of 2.0 I just drank them up, far faster than I should have, because it was so easy.

People talk with justification about how smooth 2.0 is. To me its very much like drinking milk, and I loved milk for many years. But with 1.5 you’re drinking something that has real substance, and that makes it more filling to me.

I just got my first shipment of 2.0 and I’ve already gone through a good 12 pouches of 1.5 in the past two weeks. I prefer the taste and feel of 1.5- I think the taste is more interesting to me in general and I feel a TON more full, compared to my first full day on 2.0. As for weight loss, I haven’t exactly been tracking any but I expect that if I WAS I’d have some input :stuck_out_tongue:

I haven’t tried 1.5, but what appeals to me most about 2.0 is how easy it is to consume. I love that it has a taste and consistency similar to almond milk. I recently ordered a sample of 100% Food, and I did not at all like the sludgy, shake-like quality of it, so I’m sticking with Soylent 2.0. I imagine that because of this, I probably wouldn’t like 1.5.

I’ve only been at 30-50% consumption for the week that I’ve been enjoying Soylent (about 1-2 bottles per day) and I have noticed a healthy decrease in my weight. I like to take a bottle with me on my morning commute. It makes for a great breakfast and keeps away the snack cravings for the day.


#5

Yes after trying a 2.0 bottle and getting hungry again in 2 hours I decided powder would be better. The gritty feeling makes me feel like it has more substance if that makes any sense.


#6

I agree; 400kcals of 1.5 is way more filling than 400kcals of 2.0. I prefer 2.0 for the taste and convenience, but I’m only around 30-40% Soylent. If I was doing 60% or more with Soylent then I’d choose 1.5, because trying to use 2.0 for that much of my diet would leave me feeling pretty hungry.


#7

I’d love to hear from either the soylent folks or someone who has knowledge of the difference in composition of each as to why 1.5 would be more filling than 2.0.


#8

On an elementary level, 2.0 is smoother = goes down easier = psychologically seems like nothing.

1.5 encourages customization, so extra things may be added. I use extra water and I add Stevia.

I think a meal for most 1.5 users is more than 400 cals.

And there may be other things. However, opinions vary – some people don’t think 1.5 is more filling.


#9

I think that’s the key. I never drank just 400 cals when I was drinking 1.5 regular
